Usually $75 for the shower, more for good friend or family.

Honestly, I think it depends on (1) where you live and (2) how much you can afford to give.  If it was me, in rural VA working part time, I would find a $25 gift for the shower and a $50 gift for the wedding.

Are you attending the shower? $25-50 for a shower gift, $50-75 for a wedding gift, but I only send a gift to a wedding i’m not attending if it is a close close friend or family and I’m gutted I can’t go.

Showers are meant to “shower” the bride with physical gifts. I wouldn’t attend or give a shower gift.

For the shower, if you’re going you could make something like this:

Champagne (or wine) basket with different “reason to pop a bottle” tags First Fight, First Baby.. Such a cute idea for the bride to be!! Tag templates included on the pin.

This pin is another take on the one above:  http://pinterest.com/pin/287104544965413548/

Also, another option since there’s no registry besides the honeymoon one and you don’t seem super close would be: http://pinterest.com/pin/287104544965285853/

^ easy enough to do and who doesn’t need more towels in a kitchen and basic utensils?  Can’t really get enough measuring cups in my opinion or wooden spoons/spatulas.  

So that’s my take on the shower — if you’re not going to the wedding I think a card and whatever you can afford to give would suffice.

Since you’re not friends outside of work I would spend $50.
