Does your mother know about that?

May 8th, 2008 at 03:24 pm

We just got a graduation invitation from one of my husband's cousins. Tucked inside the invite....I kid you not.....was a list of suggested graduation gifts. Included on this very long list was a laptop, boombox, digital camera, HDTV, blow dryer, CASH 3x and several other items. I am speechless. My husband and I have decided to reward this tackiness with nothing. I thought the invitation was an invitation to the ceremony and the gifts were optional. This child is the daughter of my husband's aunt and she generally tends to be very soft-spoken, dignified and reserved. I can't imagine her sanctioning this insanity. I wonder if she knows about it?

    Whoa! Perhaps they are trying to hint at things needed for college, but asking for TVs and laptops is extreme.

    I would give nothing!

    I'd return with a top 10 list of the best financial advice on SA. Or buy her something like Suze Orman's YFAB, or whatever it is.

    snoopycool, that is a really excellent idea! She's going to be disappointed but at least I will have tried.
