I didn’t give her anything… I took her son off her hands, that was enough! LOL only kidding…

Where I am from thats not really a custom…. I didn’t even think of getting them anything and if we did it’d be my FI’s job to find the gift

I am also in the same boat!! I have no idea what to get her. I kind of like this keychain that I found on Pinterest. I would like to figure something else out though with that saying (just not on a keychain).

I don’t know.. we haven’t discussed it. We’re going to get 2 smaller verisons of our wedding album and should have those in right after Christmas if I can make the decisions of what I want in them in time. 

I honestly might just write them a nice letter about how excited I am to join their crazy family and how they’ve raised an amazing son and I’ll be forever grateful to them for creating the person I want to spend my life with. Sweet sentimental stuff like that.

Maybe a custom engraved frame where they can eventually put a picture from the wedding… If I find one I like… Maybe like this? I could honestly get a picture of her and my FI at the rehearsal dinner, get it printed in an hour at a CVS and then add it to the frame and give to her that day. https://www.etsy.com/listing/193073397/5×7-mother-of-the-bride-gift?ref=sr_gallery_13&ga_search_query=engraved+wooden+frame+wedding&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery

I’m a bad DIL – I only got her a gift card to the Keg. LOL!  Maybe on a “milestone” anniversary, I’ll give her a nice gift.

I’m baffled. Why would you give your MIL a gift.. For your wedding?

Unless she paid for it, I’m quite confused.
