I’ve gotten them picture frames, nice candles/holders they can use as decor. My Mother-In-Law is very Catholic so I got her a manger scene one year. She’s a big reader so I get her books (she likes mysteries).

A go to for me is pens engarved with names or initials. Everyone uses pens and a nice one (Doesn’t have to be expensive) engraved has always gone down well.

I second candles – always a good choice. Maybe a pretty scarf or a little holiday decoration they can put out and remember what a great holiday they had this year! Or if you want to stay on the jam route, ask your partner what some of their favorite foods are? I love getting a surprise snack that I love.

vintagefemme:  I’m confused… why would you be getting them a gift on your own anyways. Aren’t you doing a joint gift? Add your name on your partners gift, done.

Or, if you like them, take your future mother-in-law out shopping.  Let her know that you had no idea what to get them and didn’t have space to bring it, so you’d like to take her out shopping to pick something out.  She can probably help with the rest of the family, too.  Ask your partner for suggestions of where to take her to find things in your price range she might like.

I’m getting my Future Mother-In-Law a Christmas ornament that represents the city where my Fiance and I are living. My Fiance got her a robe but I want to personalize the gift a little since they are paying for the entire wedding and have paid for me to join them on multiple European family vacations. I’m not gonna just stick my name on the robe (that apparently Fiance buys for her every year, how boring!) and be done with it. I wish I could think of something else to do for her since she has been so nice and accepting of me.
