that is a perfect amount.  whatever you feel comfortable giving is what you should give.

I think that amount is very appropriate. I normally spend about $40 on a shower gift because I like having a little more money to spend on a wedding gift.

I think $40 or $50 is totally appropriate for a bridal shower, but I wonder why she is bothering with a bridal shower at all if she doesn’t want you to buy gifts.

That’s totally appropriate. I was going to suggest something around $50 for the shower.

You’re already spending so much money on other things, I wouldn’t be embarrassed to spend 25$ if youre on a budget. Are you also planning to buy a wedding gift?

I usually spend about $40 on shower gifts. However, if that it stretching your budget I think it’s perfectly fine to give a lower amount. I was a bit surprised to receive gifts from my bridal party because of the costs associated with being in my wedding so I think any gift would be generous.

$50 is a pretty typical amount, especially if money is at all tight or you’re spending a lot on the wedding, etc.

I had my bridal shower recently and was so surprised to receive gifts from my bridesmaids! Given all the work and expense they applied to hosting the vent, the last thing I expected was for them to give me a gift as well.

I don’t think there’s a reason to spend more than that for a shower gift though.
