If a parent gave a child money to buy a suit, and the child assumed that the suit would cost at least 700 NIS. The parent would have wanted him to buy a cheaper suit but ended up giving the child 700 NIS. The child found a suit for 228 NIS and was satisfied. Does the child have to return the rest of the money?

Answer:

Yes, the money must be given back to the parent. The intention of the parent was not to give the child a monetary gift, but to give him money with which to purchase a suit. If the child was pleased with a cheaper suit than he expected, the remainder therefore returns to the parent.
