How much is appropriate?  What do you think?

I think between $10 and $20 is reasonable. It would really depend on how good of a friend it is for me.

$15....

 

Unless this is a best friend.  Then $20.

I think $20 sounds reasonable and nice. I guess it depends. What would you normally spend on a gift? If I were in this situation I would let that be my guide. $40-60 is normal here for a teen friend's birthday gift so I think I would go for $50, a nice midway mark.
