Family invited to party

by Kathy
(Allenton, WI, USA)

Our family(my husband, myself and our daughter) are invited to our daughter's best friend's house for a party. We are not close friends with the parents, but talk when we see them, have been to lots of the same things for the kids, have driven there kids, been in there house etc., we are not close friends, but more than just saying "hi" when we see each other.

The party is for their son's HS graduation, the dad's 50th b-day and a bunch of other relatives b-days and an anniversary. They're inviting around 100 people.

We are planning to bring a graduation card with a check for their son and 50th b-day card for the dad. Should we get the dad a gift/gag gift or is a card enough?

What about a hostess gift? They don't drink wine, and the dad could care less about a plant/flowers and we don't want to spend much if we should bring a hostess gift.

Gift or just card for the dad?

Hostess gift? Thanks!

Your idea for the cards for the graduate and father make sense. A hostess gift would be a nice touch. Enjoy the party!
