    Default Using the word "eventual"

    Hi!

    What is the exact meaning of the word "eventual"?

    Would it be correct to use this word in the following sentence?

    "How much per month do you spend on books, including EVENTUAL gifts?"

    Thanks a lot,

    André

    eventual: "Capable of being but not yet in existence".(dict.)

    I know what you are trying to say but I wouldn't use the word eventual here. Just sounds weird to me for some reason.

    How about:

    How much per month do you spend on books, including any possible gifts?
