Announcements should be sent to all your close family members, such as aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. Close family friends should also be included, as well as any of your friends who are not in school with you. And finally, don't forget tutors, members of your church, and anyone else who has made a difference in your life. What do I do about receiving gifts? Be sure and send a thank-you note soon after receiving each gift. In the note, mention something about the gift and perhaps what you plan to do with it.
If the announcement includes an invitation to a post-graduation party, you should reply to the invitation in a timely fashion so the graduate's family can make their plans for the party. You should also send a gift of some kind if you can't attend, or bring one with you when you come to the party. Announcements that do not include a party invitation can be responded to simply with a graduation greeting card, though of course you can also send a gift if you like.
Graduation gift selections can range from cash to books to computers. You may want to ask the graduate's parents for advice on what to send, or send a gift certificate so the graduate can do the choosing.
