    I dont think its cheap at all.  I would be excited to get anything for my birthday being grown and having a kid.

    I think that’s really generous.  I still love getting birthday gifts (I’m turing 25 in a week) but I absolutely don’t expect them anymore, so anything I do get is a bonus!  Don’t overthink it.  If he thinks you’re being cheap, too bad for him!

    You aren’t being cheap. That being said, I prefer to give a gift, rather than a gift card.  When you buy something, it is hard for someone to guess the cost. Which allows me to be cheap. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m overjoyed when people send me a card. You’re not being cheap, even if you didn’t send money at all.

    I think thats fine. We don’t even always exchange gifts (my bro and I).

    For an adult, I also would avoid a gift card, unless there’s a good reason for it (once I got some speakers and an iTunes GC for my Dad, he knows his music collection better than I do).  For birthdays, everyone does something different, I don’t think $25 is cheap.

    I think it depends on the way you celebrate birthdays. My family doesn’t take them too seriously so I would be beyound thrilled to get a $25 gift card from my sister. That said my DH’s family is all about birthdays, I think for their family it might be on the low end. Sounds good to me though.
