I would give $400/500. Depends on your financial situation.

@lovealways  Holy shit, I wanna be your sister. 

I was going to say $50, bc we have a baby and a house we’re saving for but now I feel like a cheap scumbag. Lol

I’m pretty close with my sibling so if I have two kids and a hubby I’ll give around $1000. 

But if it is not a close sibling like my hubby’s side I’d give 100$ each so around $400 too.

However again like how your financial part it can be lesser too.

I gave my brother $1000.00

But if you are not that close I would say $400-500

i live in NYC area so you want to give enough to cover the $$ of your plates plus a little extra which is like $300…so giving a sibling $500 is not that amazing.

@anonymombuzz  In my opinion, this really depends on your financial situation. I gave my sister $50 from me and my SO and in her thank you she was like, “You did NOT have to give us anything, you are a student!!” She was very appreciative of the $50. My other sister (also a student) did not give her a gift, that I know of. That said, I just don’t see myself expecting even $100 gifts from any of my guests, much less $400-500 and upwards. I found this in an @anonymombuzz:

“Coworker and/or a distant family friend or relative: $50-$75

Relative or friend: $75-$100
Close relative or close friend: $100-$150
Urbanite: $150-200+”

I can’t tell you the science behind it, but that’s what is recommended lol.

I suddenly feel very poor and/or a terrible sibling.

What is their financial status? What is your financial status? A $100 wedding gift could be small or large depending on who they/you are.

I received $500 from my sister when I got married last month. However, I would NOT be able to gift that to anyone at this point in my life. She and her husband both have great jobs and while I am sure they had to budget around this gft, they were able to afford this much or they would not have done it. 

I would give $50-$100 because that is generous for my financial situation. It all depends on what you can do, like other pps have said. Send what you can financially.
