What Is The Average Wedding Gift Per Couple?

The cost of wedding gifts can vary greatly depending on various factors, including your relationship with the couple, your personal budget, and cultural or regional norms. According to various surveys and reports, guests typically spend between $75 and $200 on a wedding gift.

General guidelines that might help:

  1. Colleague or distant family friend or relative: $50-$75
  2. Friend or relative: $75-$100
  3. A close friend or close relative: $100-$150 or more

These are just averages, and the right amount to spend depends on what you’re comfortable with. Some guests might choose to spend less with a thoughtful, personal gift, while others might spend more if they can afford it.

If you’re attending a destination wedding or spending a significant amount on travel and accommodation to attend the wedding, it’s generally accepted that you may spend less on a gift.

Ultimately, the best gifts are thoughtful and meaningful, and the thought truly counts.
