i agree with your fi that gifts should be useful and something they will actually use. but we decided to spend $100 per person because like you said, our wedding party is spending a lot of money to be in the wedding, plus they mean a lot to us. we figured the least we could do was give them something nice to show them we appreciate them.

We spent asbout $100 on all 12 of our attendants (6 on each side). A little more for some (like my Maid/Matron of Honor and his sister, who obviously couldn’t wear a tie so we got her a nice necklace instead). I think it’s important to factor in what they’re spending on you–travel, dresses, etc. Nobody likes to go above and beyond for a bride who gives them a chintzy gift…it’s not about the gift necessarily, but it kinda makes you feel unappreciated unless it was particularly thoughtful. I’d err on the side of a nicer gift. I love giving gifts, too =]. and I did gifts in addition to hair/makeup because I don’t think hair and makeup really counts

We have 8 people total in the wedding party. We’ll probably spend 30-40 on each of them depending. Plus I might get a toy or something for the flower girl and Ring Bearer.

For the people in our wedding, we spent around $100 this year on Christmas presents for them, and we’ll probably end up spending a similar amount for wedding party gifts. I would prefer to make it a little lower, but I know myself and how I get when I’m shopping for presents – it’s like the rational spend-thrift side of my brain shuts down, and I’m all, “Ooooh, pretty! So-and-so would love this!”
