$30-$50. Or go to BB&B and use a coupon to bring the price down a little...

Usually around $50. Depending on the season (would work now) I try to get "outdoor" stuff - plastic cups, a party bin, silverware caddy etc. I find that people who are moving into their first house from an apartment don't really have any of that stuff - and it makes for a nice presentation all wrapped up!

For my one group of friends, we always chip in $25 and get the person a $100 gift card to BBB.

At our housewarming party, we got A LOT of wine (at least 35 bottles), a few gift cards, and a couple of gifts ($20-$40) - a blanket, wine rack, picture frame, serving ware, cutting board, candle.
