So, I am not sure how much to spend on bridesmaids’ and groomsmens’ gifts. Since there are a lot of different income brackets/ spending amounts represented on these boards, I thought that I’d frame the question by asking how much to spend on a bridesmaid’s gift in comparison to a birthday or Christmas gift.
So, how much did you or will you spend per bridesmaid in comparison to what you would normally spend on a birthday or Christmas gift?

Are you trying to figure out what you should spend? I didn’t vote, because ultimately it is up to you. Spend what you feel comfortable spending. The gift doesn’t have to be large and elaborate, as long as it fits the person’s personality and comes from your heart.
And honestly, I’d avoid the ‘typical’ gifts of matching jewelry or something like that meant for them to wear for the wedding. Let the gifts reflect your individual relationship with each woman.
