    I'd buy a $10-20 present of ambiguous value so they never know how much you spent

    Considering they are getting guests to provide all the food and provide their own alcohol I'd just give them a card. I also think it's very cheeky asking for cash after asking for everything else. Sounds like they will actually make money from this do

    So they want a party, but don't want to be out of pocket for it at all it sounds like.

    How rude.

    I'd show up with my own booze, dessert to share, and nothing else but a card. They can't dare be as cheeky as to expect gifts as well!

    We never had an engagement party we were too busy with work and didn't want people feeling guilty and that they had to give us anything when we would see them at the wedding anyway. It is a lot to ask for money, food and drinks.

    I agree that it's cheeky to ask for food, drinks and then say they want cash as well!

    I don't like the idea of engagement party presents, so I think $30 is generous, or even a nice bunch of flowers would be appropriate.

    Usually if you go to target they have some good things in the casserole type area that can be quite discounted.. Possible to find something for $20!

    I wouldn't be giving anything. And I would be putting maybe a batch of cookies from woolies on the table. I think that is so rude.

    I agree with others go the cheaper gift!

    we were invited to an engagement party of someone I really really dislike (dh used to be friends with the partner, still not 100% why we were invited or why we went) i got a set of 4 tapas dishes from the Jamie Oliver range at target....cost like $20 and I would have been pleased with them as a gift, I actually went and got some for myself the week after.

    So odd asking for boy everything and a gift/cash though! I think if your bringing a plate/paying for own food you shouldn't feel the need to give a gift!
