Dave Ramsey: Gift cards for grandkids?

Dave Ramsey More Content Now

Dear Dave,

What’s an appropriate amount for gift cards to send each of our five grandchildren for Christmas?

— Liz

Dear Liz,

How much do you spend on your grandchildren? Enough to make their parents nervous.

But if your grandkids are still little, please don’t give them gift cards. No, grandma. No.

Interview follow-up

Dear Dave,

What is the proper etiquette after the job interview process? I recently had an interview for a sales management position. I’ve sent a couple of follow-up emails in the last few weeks, and I know I’m still under consideration, but I’m not sure what to do now. 

— Krista

Dear Krista

In this situation, I would recommend sending another email. You want to walk right up to that fine line that separates bold from obnoxious, because that’s one of things a good sales manager should be able to do. Respectfully tell them you understand the decision-making process takes time, but you need to know when you can expect an answer.
