    $20 isn't cheap but I find cash in a card weird for a friend. I think it's normal coming from a grandparent/aunt in a card but it could just be the way my family works.

    I limit presents to $10-$15 each so $20 is fine IMO.

    Just re read, I thought it a $20 present not cash in a card.
    For a school friend cash in card isn't cheap, but maybe tacky.
    I buy presents on sale too so it's value is higher than what I spent

    I think cash in a card is great. The parents can buy something the child actually wants or needs. Or they can put it into the child's savings account - that's what I do with DS1.

    My 6yr old absolutely loved getting cash in a card!! He had a few friends give him $10 each and he had an absolute blast going to pick out his toy.

    Even my 4yr old got cash In a card and was stoked.

    $20 is perfrctly fine, not cheap at all!

    Some people really appreciate cash or vouchers in cards for birthdays. Not everyone has oodles of space for the amount of presents a party can generate. We've been to a couple this year where that has been the case. The birthday children (6yos) have been very grateful.

    I agree. Depends on the friend and how many bdays per year , but honestly I don't expect presents for DD, last bday we stipulated "no presents" as she has soooo much stuff already and we just wanted her and her little friends to have fun with party games. Maybe I'll change my tune in a few years when she's 6... But my first reaction was Wow! That's a lot!
