I know that in some family traditions, the bride's parents are supposed to give gifts to the groom's close family members. My FI is Gujrati and my parents asked his parents about what kinds of traditions they would like to honor, which close family members they should give gifts to, and what kinds of gifts they should get for them. My FI's parents gave my parents a list of about 17 people/families and said that the most convenient gifts to give would probably be cash gifts in an envelope since everyone lives mostly in the U.S.
So my parents have no idea about what amount to give everyone, and neither do I! My parents certainly don't want to seem cheap, but giving cash to 17 families is a lot of money! So I thought I would ask you girls for some help - what amount do you think is appropriate for all the family members? And what amount is appropriate for his immediate family members (e.g. his dad)? We already bought saris for his mom and two sisters. Thanks in advance!!!
