  • The 19 yr. old I would give $20.00 - $25.00 and the couple I would give them indiviual, the same as the 19 yr. old.

  • I would give the 19 yr old $75. 00
    if you can afford it and the couple 100.00 if you can afford it. It doesn't sound like you have too many to buy for

  • It really depends on your finances. For the 19 yo, I'd give $250 (what I typically spend on Christmas presents for my kids), and for the couple $400. I have two friends with adult children, and one gives $100 the other $150, regardless of if they are part of a couple.

  • I would say $25 minimum for each person. More if they are close relatives.
