The appropriate amount for a baby gift voucher will depend on your relationship with the parents-to-be.
Below we give some suggestions but it’s important to realise everyone’s financial situation is different and it is not the voucher that counts but spending time with friends and family celebrating the the new baby.
However, as a guide, if you are a distant friend, a friend of the partner, or a work colleague expect to spend $50 for the gift voucher. If you are a close friend or distant family member a gift voucher for $80 would be appreciated. If you are the best friend or close family member a gift card for $100 would be suitable. At the same time, a joint voucher or a group of work colleagues could gift $150. But before purchasing a gift card we recommend you read our article on the pros and cons of vouchers.
We hope this has helped in deciding how much you should spend on a baby gift voucher. If you would like a more detailed breakdown we have written a guide on what you should spend for a baby shower gift.
