Gift for Family Members Hosting Reception @ Their Home

Hi everyone!

I would be very interested in the type of gift you would consider giving in the situation below:

Some of my close (considered "immediate" to me) family members live together in a huge (but not fancy or over the top) home — my grandmother, grandfather, aunt (mother's sister) and uncle (mothers BIL) and my adult cousin (daughter of aunt/uncle). They are hosting our wedding reception. 

They would never want or expect a gift for hosting as we are so close they offered to host without question... but I'd still love to do something for them. I could do individual things for each, or something for the whole family to share or enjoy. My grandparents technically have their own home upstairs from my aunt/uncle, so I could break this down into a two-for so each "family" can have something for their part of the home. 

Any suggestions? 

Thanks :)

    For so many people, maybe you can take them out to a nice dinner after the wedding? Otherwise, I'd probably do three gifts- one for each couple and one for the cousin.

    A large cookie or fruit basket for the home?

    What about a professional house cleaning after the wedding in addition to a nice dinner?

    Just to clarify...you say "host"...is the wedding AT the house?  Or are they paying for it?  Host frequently means pays so please clarify...  Because if the wedding isn't at the house then having it professionally cleaned is a horribly offensive idea.
