Couples shower – a nice card and something very small. Bridal shower – you’re throwing it, that is her gift. Wedding – a nice card and something small.

I would just get her one shower gift, not two for both showers. I usually spend 100 on a shower gift. The wedding gift depends we give more if its close family or friends, but usally 200 if its someone not as close.

I would split my entire gift budget and go 20/10/70 on gifts.  So if my wedding gift budget was $100, I would spend $20 on the first shower, $10 on the one I was throwing (your are throwing the shower, a token gift is all you need to get) and $70 on the wedding.  Reduce or increase to what you have budgeted.

I think that the party you’re throwing her counts as a gift.
