Gift Reciprocity

This post was written by a Simchabucks user.

As a man of a certain age, having recently married off my youngest, my major gift-giving issue now is one of reciprocity, of responding in kind and degree to presents given not to me or my wife, but to those to my daughter and her groom, my grandchildren for birth or Bar Mitzvah gifts and the like.  I like being generous to friends and the children of friends, but don’t want to be extravagent or cheap.  I need to call one or another of my offspring from time to time to try to learn what they received for an occasion, and often they cannot recall this useful datum.  I love SimchaGift’s on-line registration of gifts tool, as it lets me and my family member store information about gifts we received, so when it’s our turn to reciprocate, we can easily check online what we gifts we received and from whom.
