    I have a much younger cousin who is graduating high school this year.
    Not especially close to them, but I'll still give them a card with cash.
    What's the going rate for "doing the thing you should be doing anyway" these days?

    yup $50 cash is probably better than any gift to a young adult

    Skip the party so you don't have to pay. Getting that "thank you" card with a senior picture isn't worth $50. lol

    Not close, $50.

    I have a grad party for two of my wive's cousins soon. I'm giving them each $100 but I'm close with them.

    I agree. 50 should cover it or maybe a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant, and a graduation greeting card too.

    Probably because you didn't graduate.
