my bf is going to be 50 soon, She wants vouchers so she can go out and splurge. What is a reasonable amount? I'm not being mean I just never know how much to give when its money or vouchers?

For a big birthday I would spend £50 providing I could afford it that month!

Ooh I am clearly mean, I usually forget but if I remember I get her a CD or a book or some nice make-up or jewellery. £10-£20 max

i have a very small family to buy for and she's closer to me than my sister so i don't mind spending more

I'd agree £50 in this case given it's her 50th birthday and I'd expect you'd want to spend more than on a gift any other time.

Flum, you're not mean at all. But Mercedes already spends £30 - £35 at Christmas so doesn't seem stretching it too far for her to spend £50 for 50th.
