U.S. National Average
In the U.S., the national averages spent on wedding gifts fall into 3 categories. Each category is determined by the relationship of the guests to the bridal couple.
1. If buying for a co-worker or a distant family member, guests tend to spend $50-$75 each on a wedding gift.
2. Those attending the wedding of a relative or friend are likely to spend $75-$100 each on a wedding gift.
3. When a close relative or close friend gets married, the wedding gift will probably cost $100-$150 or more per each guest.
This may not be appropriate in your town or city. It is good to check with peers and learn what wedding gifts customarily cost where you live.
