Reader's Request: Couples Showers

A reader wrote in with the inquiry below:

When you are invited to a couples' shower (bridal, baby, etc), should your gift be double the cost/value of what you would usually spend for a shower of just ladies? Or, do you stick with the usual amount that you would spend, regardless of the number of attendees in your party?

What are your thoughts on the matter?

I like to think that at this point in our lives, and with the economy the way it is, people respect the idea of giving the gift one can afford, rather than giving a gift based on formula of what it "should" cost.

I'm with formulas, just a thoughtful gift you can afford.
