For you FIL- what about a popcorn machine? There are some really cool ones. Or a beer brewing kit or something along those lines if he’s got time on his hands? 

Father-In-Law girlfriend you could definitely do mascato or some really beautiful drinking glasses, massage voucher/nails etc whatever beauty things she’s in to. 

Step mom you could do a beautiful soft blanket for the couch. A friend got me a heated one for Christmas last year that matched our decor and I adore it! If she really loves coffee then you could get an Italian stove top coffee maker. They’re awesome! You’d have to know how she makes her coffee now- does she get them at cafes, does she just use instant coffee etc and then you could figure it out from there. 


For really hard to buy for people I get tickets to a concert or comedian etc that’s coming to town. I’m really struggling with ideas this year too though!

Father-In-Law: Does he have a soda stream? Fresh Ginger Ale is AMAZING. Or maybe an air popper machine? Some truffle oil for the popcorn, or some super fancy salt?

Father-In-Law Girlfriend:  I can’t remember where, but I know I’ve seen Moscato truffles somewhere. Something like that might be a nice twist instead of just getting a bottle of wine. 

SM:  A vibrating foot spa? Or a gift certificate for a pedicure somewhere? Of find a local roastery and buy her a bag of their house blend. If she doesn’t have a coffee grinder maybe one of those? Or a french press and a super awesome mug?

I’d vote for consumables or experience gifts for anyone like this. For Father-In-Law, what about a monthly snack box/popcorn subscription? Or could you make him and his gf a curated gift basket with the things you know they like – specialty ginger ales, moscato, specialty popcorns, and some assorted cheeses/teas/fruits? 

For stepmom, what about a gift basket with assorted coffees, a to-go coffee cup, some chocolates, etc? Or a gift certificate to a spa for a massage/facial or mani/pedi?
