Look no further. We have compiled a list for you.
You have had a wonderful wedding, planned tirelessly with your new spouse and your respective families. Now there are still a couple of things left to do. One is finding your mother-in-law a gift. Not a small feat, indeed. Below is a list of 15 meaningful mother-in-law gifts she will cherish always.
A unique piece of jewelry, along with a lovely card expressing your gratitude for her having raised such a great daughter or son.
This is a box of digital mementos organized by a company of the same name, ‘LegacyBox.’ In this box, she will receive pictures, DVDs with filmed moments, and/or audio recordings with special messages that you have put together just for her from the wedding.
3. Books & Wine
Select a few titles that you believe she might enjoy, wrap it up nicely along with her favorite bottle of wine to relax with over the weekends.
4. Book Her A Spa Day
All women would love a day at the spa to get pampered and groomed while drinking cucumber water. Or if there are not any spas in your area, get her a spa basket with all of the exfoliating and moisturizing essentials so that she may do so at her own pace and leisure.
5. A Painting
You can hire a local artist to turn a photograph from the wedding into a vintage-looking painting.
6. Pedicure/Manicure Basket or Certificate
If you know her favorite colors, it will be much easier to choose a variety of colors for her. Nail colors come in pastels, neutrals, dark, bright, or shimmery shades. And of course, if you know where her favorite nail salon is, you can always get her a certificate.
This is only for you if you know your mother-in-law very well. You need to know her size and her preferred style. This is a riskier choice. Hopefully you observed her while she was planning for the wedding and now you have a few ideas in mind.
8. Framed Photographs
You can choose several wedding photographs that highlights meaningful moments and frame them. You can either frame them separately so that they can be hung side by side, or you can buy a bigger frame and piece the photographs together like a collage.
Flower bouquets and plants are beautiful additions to any home. If your mother-in-law is a plant lover, it would be a great idea to gift her the flowers/plants that were used at the wedding to continue the blessed day.
10. Book of Recipes
If your mother-in-law loves cooking and you know she loves to use cookbooks, this is a great option. There are tons of beautifully photographed cookbooks for many different cuisines.
11. Wine & Chocolate
Who can turn down this match up? They are both delicious and a bit of a guilty pleasure.
12. Gift Card to Her Favorite Restaurant/Bar
You know that she goes to this place as often as she can. For certain, she loves going there. Then, why don’t you get her a gift card so that she has a good reason to go?
13. Lessons (Dance, Yoga, Zumba, Painting, etc)
Recently, you hear your mother-in-law talking about potentially taking this class or that class. Maybe she is hesitant because she is a little shy. Well, get her some lessons and she will be forced to go and have a great time!
If your mother-in-law is lucky enough to live by a beach or a mountain, you can get her a one or two-night stay at a hotel or cabin nearby. That way, she can enjoy a mini-vacation after all of the stress over your wedding planning.
15. Handwritten Letter of Gratitude
Last but not least, if your mother-in-law is not impressed by material things, you can always go old-fashioned. You can write her a genuinely thankful letter expressing how much you love your new spouse, that you appreciate her help with the wedding and that you are honored to be a part of her family.
