I think the price range you cited above sounds fine.

I usually spend around $50 on shower gifts and another $100-150 for wedding gifts depending on how close I am to them.

I think $90-$120 is MORE than enough.  I usually only spend between $30 and $40 on a shower gift.

You are planning to spend around $100 plus give a gift at the wedding?  That’s pretty generous.  I usually spend $20 to $30 on a shower gift and give a cash gift at the wedding. 

My husband was recently in a wedding that cost us a lot of money (2 nights in a very expensive hotel) plus $200 tux rental and a few hundred for a bachelor party.  We are both close with trhe couple but we actually gave less than we have given other friends because of that.

I would get something around $200 from both of you for the wedding, but since the shower gift is from you and you aren’t close, $100 is plenty!  As the bride, I’d probably surprised at that much!

Shower gifts are typically smaller or less expensive than wedding gifts.  A $90 shower gift is quite generous.
