I have never heard of giving money (or gifts) to friends or neighbors children for graduating. Is this a trend among certain social circles?
Personally, I would not hand out money or gifts to others people's children for graduating, unless they were blood relatives.
After my eigth grade graduation, my best friend's parents took us (my best friend & I) out to a Broadway show, followed by dessert at Lindy's in NYC.
Other than that, don't see the purpose.
