Egh...if it were me, sheesh, Idk. Either splurge and get a fun toy or save it in her piggy bank or by something pretty for her nursery. Do whatever you feel like. It is only $10, you're right.
mbgreenwalt:We have one combined account for the girls that they can split when DD2 turns 21. I have been putting all their birthday and Christmas money in it as well as our spare change (once the jar is filled I deposit it). When they are older I will let them keep half of their gift money and the other half will be put in the account.
This is what I remember my parents doing when we were growing up. We got half to spend and half went in the savings. Right now, all cash/checks are just going straight into his savings. There isn't anything else he needs and I want to take advantage of him being little and not knowing.
Honestly though, $10 dollars? I would just buy LO a little something.
Estwd2:I'd let her pick out a small toy or a book. DD got a few cash gifts and I let her pick out some toys and books; she had a blast. Just to be clear, why are you turning up your nose at a 10 gift? Do you expect a higher amount in general or just because she's the grandmother?
