@Saramina329:  Is there anything she really likes, like spa services, perfume, watches or scarves, a favourite spa/salon/specialty shop somewhere you could buy her a gift card to?  How about a nice dinner out at a favourite place?  Does it have to be something before the wedding or could you give her a really nice framed photo after the wedding?

I have the exact same issues (totally, ridiculously awesome Mother of the Groom!), so I’m very interested in y’all’s suggestions, too!

i think that one of the most important things that you can do for her – especially if she is emotional would be a really wonderful heartfelt letter – i know that always means the most to me, my mom, etc no matter what the gift is 

could you get her something for her house or a personalized memento of some sort? maybe a personalized frame that she could put a picture of you, fi and her in from the wedding?

we are getting my fi’s parents a frame with their family name in it with those photos of “letters” that are actually things found in nature (we saw it at a store and her mom gushed over it, so hopefully she will like it) 

there are some really cute “family tree” frames that i always think are nice gifts for people who like things like that (not sure what your fmil would like – i know my fi’s mom would love it – my mom, not so much) and since you are joining their family tree, it could be really sweet. http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/leeber-picture-frames-family-tree-with-set-of-6-hanging-frames?ID=505173&cm_mmc=Google_Feed_pla_pe-_-adtype-pla-_-target-19586772875-_-kw-&gclid=CJ6nm-_L2q4CFUMRNAod7iegWw  (and you can add frames on if you decide to have kids, etc)
