How much money should a guest bring for a boy's gift?


Realizing that Ray's question is old, here's a response in case a future visitor has the same question.

Unfortunately, the “right” amount for your Red Egg and Ginger Party gift will be different for everyone. It’s a function of how close you are with the baby’s parents, where the party is being held and your own budget. Here's a basic framework:

If you’re family or close friends with the baby’s parents, then you should give a gift equivalent in value to a wedding gift. If you are a casual friend, perhaps you’re an in-and-out-of-touch college friend or a work colleague, then at a minimum you should cover the cost of your attendance at the party.

Hope this helps!
