A Vancouver mother of two, who doubles as an event planner, advises gift givers to do some planning before plunking down any cash on a baby shower present. Jodi Campbell says most people spend between $30 and $50 on baby shower gifts. She'll chip in extra - usually spending about $75 or $100 - when the present is for a family member or close friend. First-time mothers will also prompt her to spend a bit more too. If someone is throwing an extravagant shower that doesn't necessarily mean you should spend more on the gift. If you are strapped for cash, Campbell instead recommends purchasing a book and a onesie because both items are fairly inexpensive and easy to find on sale. Campbell added that shower guests can also pool money and collectively purchase a bigger ticket item - a stroller, crib or bassinet - from the registry. When in doubt, she suggests turning to the recipient. (The Canadian Press)
