The gift giving of economists

Do economists only/often/.../ever give cash gifts for birthdays/Christmas/Hannukah/weddings?

And what does that say about the relative importance of signaling in human affairs?

Are economists a stronger or weaker proxy for the importance of signaling in this regard?

In general, are guild allegiances sufficiently strong to counter public hypocrisy?
