I just posted about needing ideas for my BIL’s girlfriend.
Well I also need suggestions for what to get my MIL for her birthday too! It’s coming up, too. I have gotten her flowers numerous times and am sick of getting that for her. SHe gave me a dress and a $50 gift card to Kohls, as well as a card that said how she thought of me as her real daughter.
So any ideas???

What does she like? My FMIL likes coffee so I’ve given her Peets Coffee stuff. I’ve also given her tea gift sets from Republic of Tea. A couple years ago I got her a fruit basket from Harry and David b/c her kitchen is decorated with lots of kitchy apple things. She loved it. Good luck!

At Christmas, I got one of those collage frames that holds about 20 pictures, then went on facebook, and found nice candid pictures for all the family members. I printed them out in black and white, and put them in the frames. I made sure all of her children, and grandchildren were accounted for, so she had a picture of everyone in the family. When I gave that to my FMIL she was thrilled. She has it on display in her living room now.

For my MIL’s last birthday, we gave her a gift card for the local movie theater, and a gift card for a restaurant. She and my FIL had a date night on us.

I’m a HUGE fan of homemade gift baskets that you can personalize for each person? Does she love to cook? Maybe assemble a cute new apron (you can never have too many!) a new cookbook, and a whisk together in a cute basket?
Tell me what she likes and I can help you think of things to put in the basket.

She does love cooking(gourmet,scratch), girlscouts(leader), gardening, pedicures, scrapbooking/artsandcrafts, she’s a student who does online classes..sorry it is so hard to think! She has collections, such as Shirley Temple Dolls. She’s really religious and Catholic.
