Is this enough $ (gift for a soon-to-be 8 year old)
 
DS1 was invited to a bday party for his really good friend :) I have no clue what he has, he's got a lot of stuff LOL...

So I was just going to put $15 in a card (or a $15 gift card?) is that enough? We're short on funds right now but we could swing $15...

I think $15 to a normal 8 y/o would be totally exciting! I think even $10 would be awesome! Heck, even $5!

When I was 8 y/o, I wanted candy and cheap toys. LOL. $5 or $10 would have made me over-the-moon happy!

Then again times are different, and I think it would depend on the kid/family. If the kid usually is given money, I'd do a higher gift amount, like $15. But if the kid usually doesn't have their own spending money, I'd think any small amount would excite them. :goodvibes:

Yes. There are a lot of cool things a boy that age could buy with $15. My son is 9 and right now is into Hero Factory (Legos) and a lot of that stuff is under $15.

That seems normal to me. Kids LOVE to get cash.

I just gave $10 to my 13 year old niece. So yeah I think it's plenty. Lol

I think $15 is more than enough. We're more the $5 gift family for other kids' b-days unless they are family. Even then it will likely be only around $10. Fortunately we don't have a tons of b-days to go to, though.

Sounds perfect to me!

Thanks! :) I dunno if we'll do cash or a WM gift card? Cash is probably more fun...

yes, it's enough. We did a $15 itunes for an 8 yr old who was getting an ipod.

ETA: while I think cash is more fun, I prefer to give gift cards as gifts as opposed to cash. Don't know what the logic is, but I just feel that way.
