The first Christmas after marrying your sweetheart will be the toughest yet. Should you buy gifts for your new family? What kind of things will my mother-in-law be impressed with? Sure, you’ve bought your mother-in-law gifts before, but this time, you may want it to be really thoughtful and special. Maybe she’s hard to impress or you guys may even have totally different tastes in gifts. I had the same nervous feeling when I chose a gift for my mother-in-law. I put together a list of things that have worked for me over the years and things that I plan to buy in the future.

If you have not started a list of things that you’ve noticed she’s interested in, now would be a good time. The list that you are about to read is actually a real list of things my mother-in-law has mentioned or showed interest in over time. When she buys something for herself, she usually mentions it to me and I mark it off the list. The list below is not exactly what I planned to buy her (just in case she reads this) but it is the general ballpark area.

Holiday Gifts For Your Mother-In-Law Count Down

#10 Crock Pot

#9 New Pot Set

#8 China Set

#7 Portal Handsfree Video

#6 A Charm Bracelet

#5 Diamond Earrings

#4 Espresso Machine

#3 Foot Massager

#2 A Watch

#1 A Gift Card

Holiday shopping is easier for me when I have lists like this one because when something goes on sale, I already have an idea of what I am looking for. It is easier to save money when you are prepared. I try to always have a plan!

Do you have a list of holiday gifts handy? Name a gift that I should add to my gift list in the comment list.

  1. My husband and I have already decided that we are giving his parents an overnight stay at a beautiful hotel in another city. It has complimentary buffet breakfast and dinner, too. They would really love it. 🙂
