Just wondering how much people typically spend on a gift for the emcee, and any examples of things people have gotten their emcees or plan on getting them? (Note: Our emcee is a friend that we have known for 7 years.)
I was thinking maybe a gift certificate for an activity he can do with his girlfriend and/or kids (restaurant, aquarium, etc.), but am not sure what kind of amount is considered normal/acceptable.
Thanks in advance for any input!

If you are paying him, I don’t think you need to get him anything. If he is doing it as a favor, I think a gift certificate to a restaurant sounds like a great idea. Whatever you can afford would be fine, and he will probably be grateful for anything. I would probably do $50. (It also depends on what restaurant the gift certificate is for. It’s nice if it covers at least two entrees and an appetizer).

Thanks for the response Jacqi. I was thinking around $50 too, so I’m glad someone else is thinking along the same lines! Good idea about considering the cost of entrees and appetizer.
