I definitely want an update too. I think the amount really varies depending on where you are. Around here, $30 is pretty normal for my town. A kid at our local middle school had cancer, and during lunch 2 days, they collected enough pocket money from the kids to buy the kid the 3G iPad, a year of 3G, and a case. It was insane. All that for a 6th grader! But where I teach (urban middle school with 85% free lunch), gifts are rare, and usually home baked goods or things from the Dollar Store (it is the thought that counts!)
