  • I would say $40-$50. Or you can get a gift card for that amount.

  • My son just graduated in May and our friends gave him $25-$50, some more some less, depending on their financial situation.

  • I'd say $20 or more. Depends on how close you are to them. They'll get plenty of cash, so don't give anything you can't afford.

  • I would say if you're close to the friend $40-$50 but if you're not $25 would be good. Don't break your bank though!

  • It depends on what you can afford. Anywhere from $20 on up. The idea of a gift card is a great idea. That way if the college student runs out of shampoo, soap, etc they have gift cards to use. They can even by snacks. Walmart and Target gift cards are a great idea.

  • How close are they? For family and close friends 100, Anybody else 50.

  • I would say $50 unless you cannot afford that... then give a thought full gift.
