Dear Miss Emily:

What is the proper thing to do for my son's girlfriend, of three years, who is graduating from college?

-----------------Miss Emily's advice------------

First, you must take financial capability into consideration.  Aside from the usual gift of jewelry, gift certificate, or gift basket from Victoria Secret, I think a luncheon, or dinner in her honor would be a lovely thing to do. Again, depending on how much you can afford, limiting it to four (you, your husband, son, and the graduate) is perfectly acceptable. Any additional gift is purely at your discretion.
