My 2 year old niece (sister in law’s daughter) is having a birthday bbq this week. In August, they’re going to be moving across country. We’re probably not going to see them often after the move.
How much money should we give as a birthday present? My husband’s family tend to give alot of money for events and my husband’s thinking his older brothers are probably gonna give $300-$400. My husband came up with $200 and while I guess we can afford it, I think that’s alot. But I don’t want to be thought of as the cheap ones in a generous Vietnamese family.
Are there any Viet/asian ladies or ladies whos families are generous like this who can give me some advice? Are these kind of cash gifts the norm from brothers and sisters?
