    My vote is for the traditional wreath. Can’t go wrong with that at Christmas time and then it’s outside so that cats wont get to it. You’ll send before Christmas, right? so they can enjoy it?

    My second vote is the winter lilies.

    I think that all of those are safe.  The only flowers I know that can make a cat sick are poinsettas.  I really like the Winter Lily bouqet, it’s so pretty!  Darn them for being healthy and not wanting eatables!  That’s my favorite part of getting gifts around the holidays!

    Yeah, though I’m sure your Future Father-In-Law is left out in most decorating things since that’s more of a girl thing!  Maybe you could get him something for work as his own little present like a tie or cuff links?

    It’s the thought that counts, right? He won’t not like them.  Most men are indifferent about gifts anyway. You’ll score points with Future Mother-In-Law which does matter.

    I agree that it’s all about the points with FMIL!

    I’d go with the lilies. They’re seasonal, classy, gorgeous and will go with any decor. My Future Mother-In-Law (and my mother and grandmother for that matter) would be all about them. I’d say they’re a sure bet on the Future Mother-In-Law points meter 🙂

    Where are these from?  I would say go with one of the plants, because they can enjoy it for longer than cut flowers or a wreath which will die.  I like the roses, but I worked at FTD for Valentines and Mothers Day and their mini rose plants were always getting sent back because they arrived frozen, or deadly looking.  Not sure about other companies, just throwing that out there.

    I know for SURE that lillies and poinsettas are not cat friendly. Maybe an orchid if they are WASPs? My parents are practical too.

    My vote is for the mini rose or the red amaryllis because they’ll be able to plant it after Christmas and think of you whenever they look at it in their garden 🙂

    My cat enjoys nomming on roses, and they’re non-toxic to kitties.

    She, however, still is not *allowed* to nom on said roses.
