Ladies, how much would you spend on a bridal shower gift for a coworker you’re not personally super close to, but work with a lot? Got an invite which was sent to all coworkers including men. Registry has cheap items and gift card option so the bride probably doesn’t expect much. But what’s a decent enough amount you would spend that’s not too embarrassingly low? Obviously can’t buy a $5 item?

$25 is a nice gesture.


My department of 15 people got me a $150 Amazon gift card collectively and I was absolutely thrilled and shocked (I didn’t have a registry). Can you go in on a group present so each person doesn’t spend more than $10?


Your team should all go in on a giftcard. 10-12 of us coughed up $325 for a girl on my team. Everyone gave different amounts.

But my general rule of thumb for co-workers is over $20 - under $50

I’d say $15-20 is the max I would go given your relationship with the coworker.

What questions should I be prepared for regarding transferability of my skills? Is there anything else I should be aware of?
