Dogsbody92:  What are you comfortable gifting? If you were buying a gift off the registry instead, how much would you be looking to spend? I would give the equivalent amount. Personally, if it was for my future BIL, I would give $150.00.

Dogsbody92:  I always say what you’re comfortable giving =)  Personally I usually give about $50-75 depending on who it is. Someone really close I give $100 just for myself. Double it for my significant other and I.

I’d say $100. If it were for a non-family member/someone I wasn’t extremely close to, then $75.

I always give $100 although I’ve nice been to a wedding on my own always with my partner I’m not sure if I would give $100 if I went on my own but probably would depend on who the couple were.

How much would you have spent on a regular registry item?  Give that in cash.  We usually spend $100-$130 on friends either in gifts or cash.  For a sibling probably $200- $250.

It just depends on your own finances, but I would do the upper limit of your gift spending range since it’s your BIL.

For friends I think $100-200. For my brother I gave him $500.
