$10 in money envelopes so they don't feel left out. If they were to marry, I'd give them a $20 to make them part of the family.

They expected us to drop the money gifts since we're on fixed income now, but I just can't do that. I budget amount needed for holidays & birthdays and make sure it's available when needed.

Some day if the going gets tough as their families grow, I'll probably just do what my single mom did and make banana nut loaf breads, cookies, etc., wrapped in foil with a bow on top for their families.
