Do you sign a card or get a gift for your Mother-In-Law or Future Mother-In-Law on mother’s day?
I usually only give something to my mom. I might help FH pick something out for his mom (he usually goes with flowers) but I feel weird signing my name to the card since she’s not my mom. I don’t send cards to the other mom’s in the family either (even my SIL who has kids, or my grandmother when she was alive). Just curious what other bees do?

I do. I get something small, like a photo in a frame, but I still get her something. Fiance didn’t know what to get her this year, so he’s adding to my framed picture and getting her some shower gel and a candle or something like that.

I send flowers and a card. My own Mother died in 1989 and I am thrilled to have a Mama (my term for her) again.

I don’t give her something, but I’m helping my daughter make something for her. My SO will be out of the country til the week after Mother’s Day and I thought she’d appreciate a little something. It’ll definitely be from my daughter though and not from me.

Darling Husband writes the card to his mom from both of us – I do the same for my side of the family

I didn’t this year because my bf forgot it was mother’s day (she lives in another country with a different mother’s day) and I sent a card last minute from the hallmark website. I didn’t want her to think it was my idea and that he forgot. Normally I would sign both our names.
When I get cards for my mom, I always sign it from the both of us.

My FI’s mom passed away several years ago, but if she was alive I would definitely be involved in the card/gift giving.

I give my fmil a card at least. She treats me like a daughter and I love her very much. And regardless, she’s still a mother who raised the amazing man that I get to marry, so for that she deserves some appreciation.

Yep, Fiance and I always get something for his mom and sign it from both of us. 🙂

I voted “other” because I would, but my Mother-In-Law lives overseas and we don’t send cards or gifts. My husband called and he told her and his grandmother a Happy Mothers Day from all three of us (himself, me, and the dog haha).

I got a card for his mom and Nanny. I buy like 10 mother’s day card already for special women in my life (including an ex-boyfriend’s mom and grandma). They have been nothing but nice and supportive to me, it’s the least I can do.

The cards/gifts for each of our mothers are from both of us.

I picked out the card, bought it, and handed it to him to fill out. I was in the bathroom getting ready so I honestly have NO clue if he put my name on it or not. I’m usually on everything else.. and I usually include him on the cards/gifts to my family.

My family always gets cards, DHs family doesn’t (birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc). I sent a card to both our Mom’s, from both of us.
