file Is R200 too little?

So I was reading this chat on News24 - forum.women24.com/yaf_postsm31369_Is-R20...ittle.aspx#post31369

And got me thinking, even for close friends we generally give R200-R300 for a gift. Considering that we spend on bachalors, hen nights, - most recent wedding we had to hire a tux for DH. The one before that was in JHB, so was R3k worth of flights etc.

But then I spend around R150-R200 on childrens birthday gifts, so perhaps a wedding I should spend more??

What do you think its the apporiate amount??

I spend about the same, Missesmom. Usually R100 on a kids present and about R300 - R400 on a wedding gift.

I do 50-100 MAX on kids birthdays. R300 on weddings. R500on a very close friend or family member (like my brother or god child not a random cousin).

I hate buying actual gifts, so I always buy vouchers now - or give cash. So then I feel bad if its less than R150.

But then if i take into account the card (at least R30) and I always get a luck pack or chocolate to go with the voucher if for a kiddy so they have something to unwrap - I guess sometimes its over r200...

I really need to start making my own cards again...

Missesmom that is madness! Buy a book from Bargain books for fifty bucks, wrap it and write their name on it in permanent marker!

I suppose it depends what age the child is. A 1 year old would be excited over a wrapped up empty box!

Hannah always makes my kiddie birthday cards. ;)
