I would talk him into giving a smaller gift. Maybe a few gift cards to grocery store. We did give when we were in debt, but moderately. Something that doesn't affect your own finance too much. I...

For an adult you can get a big nice bar of imported soap. They're usually up to 1/2 lb each and come in neat printed boxes. Boxes of note cards and nice stationary are good, too. I'm not too keen...
