Re: Is this enough $ (gift for a soon-to-be 8 year old)

I'd probably do cash instead of a gift card for that age. And I think $15 is plenty. I'd probably only give $10.

I think it is enough. I find that my children's friends tend to start at out at about a $15-$20 gift for the 5-9 year old crowd. As they get a little bit older, we would move that to $20-$25. We usually do a gift card. All the kids I know love gift cards. I would either pick someplace like Target or a video game store for that age group.
