Why did you have to invited his step aunts and the rest of his step distant family/ i can see having to invite the step sisters to keep the peace, but really his step cousins?     

I say if you are putting the wedding on yourseleves then you don’t have to give them gifts. Keep in mind that if you plan to give all parents gifts but exclude his mother then you will run into problems there when she finds out.

I don’t think you need to give gifts if they have not contributed to the wedding (either financially, or been overly helpful)

If neither set of parents has contributed, then no you don’t need to buy gifts.

Secondly, if you and your fiance are hosting the wedding, then it’s your decsion who is invited…although you need to be willing and able to put up with the drama that may ensue.

I would get them all something small.  We gave our parents (4 sets due to divorces) framed engagement photos of us.
