Well she’s my Mother-In-Law now but we’ve always gotten her a Mother’s Day gift from the both of us (except year 1 when I got her a individual gift).

But for me I’ve always felt a part of the family?

I don’t know I think something small even just a card & chocolate or a potted plant/flowers would be nice since she will be your mother in law soon!


We always pick out gifts together although I tend to have a better feel for gifts. ๐Ÿ˜‰
We got Mother-In-Law a gold flower lariat necklace with teardrop-shaped ruby quartz gemstone. And we also sent her a cheerful bouquet.

For my mom we got her a lightweight waterproof Columbia jacket. Unconventional but she’s hard to shop for! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Any gifts that we give are from both Fiance and I regardless of who we’re gifting so yes, I’ll be giving her a Mothers Day gift. She’ll be getting an Amazon gc that she can use towards a few books for her Kindle that we got her for Xmas and an awesome arrangement that I designed with a local florist.

We get both my mother and his mother something from both of us. The rule is each of us have to pick the gift and card for our own mother because we each know our own mother best…but the card is signed by both of us.

I’m getting my SO’s mom a gift, and I was invited to brunch with his family as well, so we’ll be going to that.

I picked up a hydrangea plant for Fiance to give to his mom, and I’m totally having him to say its from the BOTH of us ๐Ÿ™‚  I dont think he’s planning on doing anything for my mom though.  Hm.  Guess I’ll just tell her her potted spinach plant came from us.

Not a clue.  I’m guessing we well.  Just have no clue what we’ll be getting either parent.

I figure we can get my mom a flower (let the kids pick out something REALLY cheap) and we’ll let his dad figure out what to get his mom, lol.

I was going to send roses to my Future Mother-In-Law but sadly, the shipping and cost nearly doubled the cost of the arrangment :/ and I’m on a tight budget, we’re probably going to send a card and possibly a gift card to one of her favorite yarn stores.

ETA: We always sign Love, Mr. Beekiss and Ms. Beekiss (our names regardless of who actually purchased what).

I always get her a present, but all of the gifts I get are from both of us. (Even though I always pay for them and Fiance doesn’t usually even know what they are until the receiver opens them!!!) But that’s because I love picking out and giving gifts to people, so I don’t mind. At xmas though it gets to be alot, so I pick out the gifts and he gives me half towards them. And like another poster said, they treat me like family already and have for a couple years now, so I like to buy for them.

@Ms. Sparkles:

I think if they already treat you like family then it’s not an issue. Just get her something! The “wedding” is just a formality imo. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I think your Future Mother-In-Law would love whatever you get/do for her!

Before we were engaged, Fiance and I bought gifts for each of our moms individually.  Our moms always got us birthday presents and such, so we thought it was only right to get them Mother’s Days gifts.  Since we’ve been engaged, we just thought it was silly to buy individually, so now the gifts are from both of us.  Althought, I am the one who usually has to think about what to get and actually purchase the present and cards.
