    I've never given anyone money for the birth of a child.

    Who does that?

    Oh sure, baby gifts, like $100 at Babies 'R Us, or whatever, but $500?

    Uh...no. Sorry. If you need money like that, you shouldn't be having kids. Maybe if the mom was single and 16 years old, but still...no.

    jackie and nancy never had kids i suppose they had some expendable income....it was a very nice gesture....thus the point of my op....howard doesnt do nice gestures like that...or at least not back then....if he did write a check for someones wedding it was done with the knowledge that the amount was definitly to be made public....

    $500 is a lot better than a blue night light for a girl.

    Must be regional. I've heard of baby shower gifts, but not gifts for the birth.

    But for wedding a gift is CASHE, no other gifts, those are given at the wedding shower. That's why I kind of cringed at the (I think) Bubba wedding story with Hulk Hogan walking around with a huge gift.

    It depends on how close you are. I've never done it for anyone with whom I only had a work relationship though.

    Not once.

    Two of my other close friends, though, I've spent far more than that on their gifts, over the years.

    I gave one of them $150 gift certificate to Bed, Bath & Beyond when she was going to go off to college, but that's on top of all the other gifts I've given to her over the previous 18 years.

    Your hostess was the rude one. I always bring something to a party even if I told not to, Friday I went to a party that the host said not to bring something but I took a nice bottle of Chiraz wine. It was busy so I don't know if he even knows I brought it, but I left it on a table where someone else had brought one too.

    youve never heard of anyone giving a savings bond or opening a savings account for a baby? That region will pay $3000 a month for a 500sg ft apt, but doesnt believe in baby gifts...:facepalm:

    Really?! Holy crap.

    I was once taken aside by a friend when I was 19 or 20 because I forgot to bring something for the host. I've never made that mistake since.

    Yikes. What did you do to smooth things over? I would've been flabbergasted.

    Yeah, sure. Your parents or close family but not a co-worker.

    At 19 or 20 it's understandable to not know. A good host does not expect everyone to bring something, they just appreciate those who do.

    If one of my freinds has a baby I will usually ask the wife's freinds what a good gift would be. I thought everybody did that :dontknow:

    It was a nice gesture by a nice guy who at that point probably earned about 5-10% of Howie's income but whose gifting was likely was about 500% more generous.

    It is a nice gesture and it didn't set him back....jackie is a generous person and, like me, wouldn't think twice about giving a nice gift to a friend

    Also what Jackie did was great. He gave a great gift so others would talk about it and he didn't have to. Howard does the opposite he pats himself on the back when he gives someone $1,000 as a wedding gift, but then someone like Artie who makes 50 times less than Howard will give more.
