Possibly not the right section to post in but given that it'll probably degenerate into people letting off steam on why you should/shouldn't give money here goes... Also to pre-empt other more succinct suggestions I have already searched for "communion" and "money" and don't think that having a discussion on the topic once a year is unreasonable. Communion time is coming up and myself and th'missus were arguing about how much to give and to whom. I reckon a tenner to the kids of neighbours we're not particularly friends with and 20 quid to those we are, 30 quid to relations kids with 50 for God children. Then you have scenarios where you are being invited for a sit down meal or any event where the host will be providing food and drink, to me this should result in a 20 quid bump on top of the above figures. Needless to say I'd also factor in things regarding how your kids were treated when it was their communion as well as how well off you are, although to be honest I'd say that even if you have millions the amounts above are fine (except for close relations).
