No Obligation
by: Ms P Etiquette

One is never obligated to give a gift, especially when one feels put upon. Gift giving must be from the heart, a sign of generosity and caring to the recipient. I know we all feel gift giving is necessary in some situations, but expecting a gift is poor etiquette.

A congratulatory card acknowledging the momentous achievement is sufficient. Since this is a family member, I believe that is acceptable etiquette.

Good luck.
