What should I spend on a baby shower gift?


Like newborns, baby gifts come in all sizes:  from onesies and washcloths all the way up to that stroller that looks more like an SUV – and as a rookie on the shower circuit, reading that registry over and over has you a little stressed out.  So when the mom to be get to your gift, what should be inside?

    OMG! I spent exactly what 52.9 said I should spend! I feel much better about it! Thanks What Should I Spend!!!

    These days it’s becoming more common to buy one really nice shower gift for the baby and then a small token gift after the baby is born.

    For very close friends, I might spend a bit more than $50, probably getting something on the registry that’s around $50 and then spending a little extra on something more personal.
