Here are a bunch of h-bridge designs if you are really looking to get the cost down, or maximize cost and power. At a minimum, this page will help you understand h-bridges.

 I think using an H-Bridge (there is a board for the Pi) is the route I'm going to take, primarily because it introduces me to something new.
Since I'm already using an I/O port expander I've got plenty of GPIO pins and a little extra isolation.
Thanks to everyone's input.  Using a couple of relays is being filed away for another project.

Much appreciation,

Good evening Brian,

I think you'll find an H-Bridge to be the best solution from an availability standpoint (used to drive stepper motors and DC brushed/brushless motors), the inherent lockout design (keeps you from shorting your supply bus), and the isolation necessary between your 12 volt power supply and your controller circuitry. Oh, did I mention the good H-Bridges limit current?
