I am a DD girl myself, but I know many people who prefer Starbucks. If you are having three prizes, then I think $10. That is basically a drink and danish.

I agree with Deanna. Do Panera or something similar. I would do $10. $5 doesn't get you much anywhere except maybe Dollar tree or Wal-mart. Starbucks is so overrated,unless you know that most guests will use the G/C I would totally do Target instead.

We are giving out $15 gift cards at my shower- one for Starbucks, one for ColdStone and one for Blockbuster..we figure they can always trade if they get one they don't want! I think $5 or $10 is plenty though!

It wasn't my shower, I got it as a prize and thought it was cheap.
 
I did a baby shower for a friend a few years ago & I know I spent more than $5 on each gift.... then again I hadn't been to a shower in ages so I didn't know what was standard.

I was thinking about getting the teachers gc from Starbucks but since so many of you said you don't like Starbucks I bought from Target instead.
