#RizzList: How Much to Spend on Wedding Gifts in Each State!
Here’s How Much We Spend on Wedding Gifts in Each State
It feels a little impersonal to give CASH as a wedding gift. But it’s what a lot of couples WANT these days. Especially if they maxed out their credit cards paying for their big, dumb, lavish wedding.
So how much should you give? A website called Tendr tracked how much users in all 50 states gave as wedding gifts last year . . . and the average was $160.
Don’t break the bank just to keep up with that number though. Some people gave a lot more, and most people gave less than that. $160 was just the average.
Summer weddings had the highest average gift at $174. Winter weddings had the lowest at $147. Maybe because we’re more strapped for cash around the holidays.
The state where people spent the most was Vermont at a whopping $245. And the rest of the top five were also in the northeast: Rhode Island, $235 . . . Connecticut, $200 . . . New Jersey, $198 . . . and New York, $191.
If you’re heading to a wedding this summer in Arkansas, Indiana, North Dakota, Mississippi, Idaho, or Kansas, you’re in luck. All those states averaged less than $100. Arkansas was the lowest at $73.
