My go too’s are gift baskets, like a basket with all the stuff for a favorite meal, a homemade sweets basket (cookie’s, brownies, mini banana loafs), or a night in basket (popcorn, movie, bottle of wine).

@tksjewelry:  those are my go to’s as well.


I also do things like hand lotion (I have a crabtree and evelyn outlet near me that’s great for this). Candles are good too – although obviously these are better for the females.

Can you do 8 gifts for the couple – combine gifts for Mother-In-Law and FIL? That way you can do the “date night” basket with a restaurant gift card and movie tickets. That way you only have to think of 8 things not 16.

Give gifts to couples, not individuals. Do things like printing a favorite recipe and then buying all the ingredients to make that recipe. Or some bubble bath and votives for a relaxing romantic night. Or you could do things like big Yankee candles…nice picture frames, Good books for avid readers, restaurant/coffee shop gift cards (bonus if they are for local places)

I agree with pp – hampers are my favourite go to Christmas gift for my Fmil. For my mum, it’s perfume or Bayliss & Harding body stuff. For our dads, it’s nice bottle of wine.

I’m clueless when it comes to shopping for any of my FI’s family, and he’s worse than I am at it! He’s terrible at buying gifts for anyone. Haha. I don’t know them well enough to be able to come up with personal gifts.. I see them for holidays and maybe twice during the summer at our cottage.

I’m crocheting market bags for a few people – at least that’s my plan.  Baked goods are always a good one, as it giving them all the (dry) ingredients and a recepie in a cute container.  Attach a spoon or something and you’re good to go for a few bucks.  I saw a super cute idea for the Mason jar mug with hot chocolate mix in it (with candycane bits!).  I have a grandma who writes tons of letters so stationery works for her.  I love coffeetable books, too.
