    work baby shower - how much to give?

    I organized a group gift for a work baby shower about a year ago. Everyone gave me around $15 to $20, and I ended up spending more like $35, because 1) I had ALMOST enough for the only really big gift left on the registry, and 2) I had to buy the wrapping paper and card.

    work baby shower - how much to give?

    hi all - i'm on fire today, this is my first time to these boards (the baby boards, i mean) and i find i have all of these pertinent questions! :)

    there's a girl at work who will be thrown a surprise baby shower and there will be a money tree. i will not digress on that and will just stick to my question - i would imagine that she'd prefer to receive $ than baby things, so i'm going to go with cash - how much is appropriate? i am in a mangement position at a family company and she's an administrative assistant - so i don't want to give too much OR too little.

    thanks!
