    Between 10-20. Again depends on how well you know the family and how long they have been friends etc

    $10-$15 That's usually enough to find something quite good for kids or babies

    $15-20. If it's someone I don't really know and don't expect to know, $15 is my absolute limit.

    $10 to $20 is enough money to buy something nice.

    $10 - 20, but often it's something that I bought on special so worth more. I normally buy a $1 reject shop card and recycle a gift bag.

    I agree, about $20. I do make sure the gift is in the interests of the child though.

    I bought a huge roll of brown paper a few years ago and use it for all presents. I add blue or pink ribbon or maybe get DS to put stickers on. For Xmas I use Xmas ribbon/stickers.
    I lap bought a bunch of birthday cards off eBay a few years ago, 50 or something for cheap and use these

    It depends on how well we know them. I will spend up to $40 on the children of close family friends, but usually about $15 to $20 on kindy friends.

    We have a huge stockpile of wrapping paper and cards which I buy when they are on special or from the cheapo shops. I also get the kids to make cards sometimes.
