    $15. DD was invited for 25 birthdays last year! It gets bloody $$$ to spend anymore.
    I alway get stuff when I sale and put it away. Good friends though get $25ish and DD picks them something herself.

    My boys have the choice to spend $10ish each or put it together and get the birthday kid a combined present (usually with two parts). So, $20.
    For a close friend it's more like $40.
    It's really hard around here to get a good present for $10 so I feel bad for my boys but I just cannot afford to fork out $40 for presents alone each birthday party.

    If both my dd's are invited I generally get them $15 gift each so they both give a pressie or around $30 on 1 gift if we can't find anything we really like. If its 1 dd invited them around $20.

    i find it hard to buy anything that's $15-20. it looks like nothing literally. everytime i do find something and i get to the party, i seem to have the most tighta$$ present cos everyone else has obviously spent more.

    Play cafe parties cost about $10-$15 per kid so is be spending at least that. More if it was a close friend's kid, family member or good friend of my kids.

    Depends on the relationship. Close friends $20-30, people we don't see too often $10-20, and for cousins around $50.

    I spend $10-$15 on school kids. It sounds stingy but we ensure they get a nice present, usually something crafty. DS has been to at least 10 parties so far and it's only September. This doesn't include family and close friends.

    I get him to colour in butcher's paper for wrapping, and he either makes the card or I buy a cheapie.

    I spend between $30 and $40 on the kids of close friends, and more on family members.
