What do you mean by “the weekend is our gift to everyone”?

We’re giving gifts to everyone in our bridal party (3 bridesmaids, 3 groomsmen, 2 ushers, 1 ring bearer), both sets of parents, my aunt and uncle (who are the parents of our ushers and ring bearer – they’ve been there for me my whole life and will be helping out a great deal with our wedding) and our officient, who will hopefully be my cousin if we can get her legally ordained to perform our ceremony. 

Bridesmaids: Chocolate brown cashmere sweaters & gift certificates to their favorite stores.
Groomsmen & Ushers: Custom Nikes from NikeID.com to match our wedding colors.
Ring Bearer: Undecided
Parents: Gift certificate to BnBfinder.com. Its a site that sells gift certificates to hundreds of bed and breakfasts all over the country. We’re gifting our parents with a weekend away. They will definitely need it after helping us with our wedding.
My aunt and uncle: Probably a restaurant gift certificate 
My cousin/officient: Gift certificate to her favorite store.

I’ve just started to think about this:

Bridesmaids/groomsmen (3 ea): A gift of some sort worth approx $100-$150 ea

Ushers/personal attendants (2 ea): Gift of approx $50

Parents: Ooh! I like the B&B gift certificate idea! 🙂 Or maybe a certificate to a nice restaurant they wouldn’t already go to. OR, something small, and I”ll buy them the photo album

Officiants: Amex gift cards?

Readers, etc: My wedding is in San Francisco, which requires travel for all, so maybe a San Francisco-themed gift basket
