I grew up in the Midwest and we didn't do that either. Maybe it's a relatively new custom? I am older than dirt! I don't think anyone gave me anything for graduating other than my parents (a new watch and a new purse, which I still have!). They also paid for my attending university, so I have them to thank for that as well. I didn't have a car until I could afford to buy one, insure myself and pay all the related bills for maintaining a car. Honestly, I never felt deprived!Originally Posted by Rattus;2994879;
famita, good job! You did a very nice thing and I'm sure they appreciate it.
