llevinso :  usually I just give hosts either wine, champagne, flowers, or chocolates (or a combination). So for SIL definitely prosecco as she likes that, then for Mother-In-Law possibly one of the above, or what about something grandma related? Like a photo frame with grandma on if that she can put a picture of herself and your baby in when he arrives?

llevinso :  I think you might be over-thinking a bit 🙂 This may sound bad…. but hostess gifts don’t have be to quite as thoughtful as “regular” gifts. I LOVE that you ARE being thoughtful, but you can cut yourself some slack here. Even if Mother-In-Law is dieting, a nice box of chocolates can be savored over many days. 


What about something for the “crazy cats?” Lol Some catnip, toys, or treats? 


I would say for anyone, good hostess gifts are something that just says “hey, thanks for doing something nice for me!” Anything that’s consumable is always good – chocolate, booze/champagne/wine, candles, soaps, lotions, flowers – anything that people don’t have to worry about being “stuff” sitting around. Also – if they aren’t ~exactly~ the giftee’s favored scent or flavor or whatever, they can always re-gift it……….

llevinso :  It sounds as if your Mother-In-Law would love a Grandma gift. Proseco sounds like a win for SIL. A heartfelt card letting them know how much you appreciate their efforts and how you look forward to having them be a part of your child’s life would probably be the most appreciated.

llevinso :  Anyone that I know who’s crafty, including me, would LOVE a Michael’s gift card – so much fun 🙂  When I give only gift cards I like to make sure the card is extra nice and put something extra with the card, like a nice chocolate bar with a little bow on it or something.

What about getting your Mother-In-Law a “I love Grandma” frame or something like that?  If she’s so excited for the grandchild, I’m sure she’ll love to have tons of pictures around!

As for your SIL – if she likes prosecco, get her prosecco!  No need to hold off because someone else is giving her booze for another occasion.
