How Much Should You Spend on a Graduation Gift in the Greater Binghamton Area?
Ahhh graduation from college seems so long ago. A happy time for sure. High school is even more of a distant memory.
With Binghamton University, Broome Community College and other area school ceremonies behind us (congrats to all area graduates!), there are still a bunch of high school graduations ahead.
So how much money is considered a good gift for the graduate in your life? According to a new survey in the 'Wall Street Journal,' people give an average of $111 for a high school graduation, $243 for a college graduation and $256 for a grad school graduation. Way more than I remember receiving but these figures are the averages.
It sounds like every little bit helps, since the survey also found the average undergrad now finishes school with around $14,000 in debt.
