Yes, it is appropriate to give a gift at a graduation party. The gift could be something that reflects what the graduate plans to do in the future. A college-bound high school graduate might receive some item needed for college. A college grad could get a gift that would help for his/her career/job or setting up a home. The same idea works for a high school graduate not intending to go to college. Another idea would be a picture frame or photo album for graduation day photos. It is not necessary to spend a lot of money.
