O/T How much to give for a wedding gift? Need help please!

I don't go to many weddings, maybe 1 or 2 every 2-3 years and I never really know if the amount I give is appropriate. I always err on the side of more than less but I'm too embarrassed to ask other people what they are giving.

Do you base it on how well you know the bride & groom or give a set amount to everyone regardless of the relationship to you?

What if you aren't attending the wedding at all, do you still send a gift of the same amount as if you did attend?

Do people give actual gifts (non monetary) anymore?

We are invited to a wedding next month & if we do make it to the ceremony, we will not be staying for the reception. This is a much younger 3rd cousin to me & my son is standing up as a Groomsman.

OK all you Emily Post's...give it to me!
