How much should I spend on my gifts to my bridesmaids?

MOH - $100 room deposit plus 1 night's stay, massage & hair day of
BM - BM Dress ($170), massage & hair day of
And then I will probably get them nice OOT bags and a special something extra in them.
So about $225 each so far...
I also have 1 in-town BM who is helping throw the bach/lingerie party, so I will probably find her a nice thank you gift or something - not sure on that yet! Probably around $50 for that.

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

I have two attendants, and we are also providing travel and lodging accomodations. We don't have a big budget, but I wanted to pamper my girls as I'm the first in my immediate circle to get married. It's important to note that I'm a bargain shopper; I use my Bath and Body coupons to get lots of free stuff!

Either way, any wedding I have been in, you bought your own dress, shoes, paid for hair, makeup, bought them a shower gift, paid for throwing the shower, gave a wedding gift, etc. The only gifts I have received, or any gifts that anyone else I know have received as a bridesmaid are the jewelry. I know it can be a lot to ask someone to pay just for your wedding, but don't forget, they are on vacation too.
oh and i thought it was supposed to be an honor just to be chosen as a bridesmaid? seriously, i'd like to be a bridesmaid for one of you ladies! you're so spendy!
