How Much Do You Spend on Birthday Gifts?

Hi ladies hoping you could help. We've been getting invited to birthday parties and I'm always wandering what I should spend on these gifts? The age ranges of the kids is up to 8 and I usually look for something around $10, unless they're close friends. Is this too cheap??? The parties we have attended they have not opened the presents but the gifts are so big?? so I'm curious if I'm spending enough?? Anxious to hear from you and thanks for your help!
