How much should you put on a gift card for a baby shower game prize?

Anywhere between $5-$25 is a fair gift.  Consider the average cost of the place you are giving the gift card for.  Gifting a manicure might cost $10-15.  If you’re giving a gift card for a higher end boutique you might want to do $20-$25.

If you’re on a budget choose a gift card to a place that has reasonable priced single items. For example a $5 gift card to a coffee shop will get the recipient a free coffee or pastry. Or a gift card to Five Below where all items are under $5
