Is Giving Cash Gift acceptable in your Culture/Country?
June 22, 2016 12:14pm CST
Here in India it's a common practice to give cash gift (as a guest) at weddings,baby showers,birthdays etc. Elders give cash gift to younger one's as a blessing whenever they meet them after a long time. It's something which has been a part of our culture from a long time.But in the recent years some people tend to deny such gifts. So I really began pondering over the fact that can offering cash gift offend someone? And is it really acceptable to do so in other cultures/countries? Share your experience guys.Is it acceptable at your place?Also would you feel comfortable accepting it?

It is certainly acceptable here. My niece and nephew always ask for cash for birthdays/christmas. Sometimes some people may see a cash or voucher gift as not as thoughtful as buying an actual present...just depends on the person I think.

most of the people here with give Cash as gift in different type of function mainly in marriages. First thing they will think of how much to give, they won't think whether it is bad or good. Actually what they really believe is people are spending lot of money for a function so if we give gift as cash it will be a help for them.
