I am not Jewish but I have been to some and I just gave cash.

I know that people give a gift based on chai (18).  ie.18×10= $180 cash gift

@linnylou_88:  I’d give her $50, if you can afford it. Ony because she means so much to your FI!

@mu_t:  Yes, haven’t you ever heard of an adult being baptized? Same thing.  Not sure if you didn’t realize that there’s more to a bat mitzvah then a big party, which by the way not all people have a party. 

OP – Maybe you could get her a nice mezuzah? When my sister was bat mitzvahed, I got her a nicely framed print, something like this:  http://www.allysonblockjudaica.com/bar_mitzvah_and_bat_mitzvah_prints_s/1821.htm

@linnylou_88:  Oh really?! We’ve only always had them on our front door.  I still think even if she wanted them on every doorway in her house, she’d appreciate it.

I think a mezzuzah is a beautiful idea and I don’t know anyone who matches all of them! Usually they are a collection of gifts and souvenirs from places, or collected over time so I don’t think they have to match!

@MrsWBS:  sorry for my ignorance, i was genuinely curious. i knew that it wasn’t just a party but i always thought it was about a boy becoming a man/girl becoming a woman in the eyes of the religion… i just didn’t know it happened in adulthood.

@mu_t:  Same here. I always associated bar/bat mitzvahs with kids turning 13/being seen as an adult in the temple.

Etsy has some beautiful house blessings!
