what about a pamper day – send her off to have a massage or pedicure or something?   if you like her enough – join her for a girls day

what does she like to do for fun/relaxing?

My Future Mother-In-Law loves to fish and doesn’t get too often because she lives in central Fl and it’s a hour drive to the coast so we got her a deep fishing trip ticket and spent the day on a boat in the middle of the ocean catching absoluately nothing but we had fun! And, she really enjoyed her day.

Does she likes spa/getting nails done? Maybe take her to have that done.

Like wine: like a winery tour?

Like being outside/hiking: going to one of y’alls famous trails and spending the day outside with her

Crafting/artsy: maybe a farmers market or art show?

How about taking a cooking or baking class together? And that can be her present as well? There’s probably a restaurant, culinary center, Michaels, bigger bakery that might do something like that? Or even like a flower arranging class if she’s into flowers? You can learn a lot from the pros!

Good Luck! I think it’s sweet that you’re thinking of her.

Cooking classes are great ideas. Is there a certain type of cuisine she likes but is maybe difficult to make if you don’t know what you’re doing (like Dim Sum)? At least that way she doesn’t see it as a critique on her own cooking!!

Since she’s into decorating, maybe a subscription to a home decor magazine that’s in line with her style and taste?
