pinkabner:  Whatever you can afford. Usually the money is collected and given as one gift so she will never know what any individual donated.

My co-workers threw a shower for me and they understood they wouldn’t be invited to the wedding since it was (almost) a destination wedding up North (we are down South). Most ladies gave me about $25 if they gave a gift card or check. I have given similar amounts for baby showers and other wedding showers here at work.

I’d suggest $5-15.  Like a PP said, whatever you feel comfortable giving is fine.  I’ve thrown showers for co-workers in the past, and people gave all different amounts.  The lowest was $5.  The highest was $60.

I usually throw in 10 bucks for these things. It won’t be tied to you individually, so don’t worry too much. If you’re close with her or work in a small grooup, then I’d give a little more, probably.

If you don’t know her that well, then I think $10 – 20 is perfectly acceptable.

pinkabner:  So are you actually invited to her real shower, and not just a work thing? I think that’s weird if you’re invited to the actual shower & still not to the wedding. If you don’t know her that well, I’d probaby give $25.

pinkabner:  I usually put in a ten or a twenty, depending on how well I know the person and/or what bill(s) I happen to have on me when the card comes around. I have put in $5 before though, when I was really strapped and didn’t know the person that well.
