  • I usually spend around $25. I guess it depends on who it's for. I loved getting the basics....bibs,burp cloths, rattles, lotions and soaps....and don't forget a rubber ducky!

  • I am a spender. I love to buy baby shower gifts. I once gave a girlfriend a basket full of bath soap, lotions, shampoo, the disposable wash clothes, bath toys, wash clothes, a towel, etc...and I only paid about 30 for it b/c I shop at the bargain places.

  • I would say it depends on who it's for and how broke I am at the time. Onece for a good friend of mine I spent about 25 dollars getting the basic bath supplies, and then put it into a cute little basket.

  • On a family members baby shower I would spend at least $50 like I did for my cousins baby shower. I bought her a gift basket with all sorts of things for the baby (it's been a while since she had a baby) and some bath toiletries for her.
    On a person I don't really know all that well, I would maybe spend $20. I would just buy a couple of outfits for the baby, nothing big.

  • I'm with luvschocolate. If it's a close family member of a close friend I go all out. I love buying baby stuff. Not a close friend or coworker i don't spend as much maybe $30-$40.
