  • if she likes movies you could do a movie basket with popcorn, box of candy, gift certificate to the movies, and anything else movie related. Does she collect anything? If so get something to add to her collection. How about a pamper yourself basket. You can get tons of little things to put into a basket to so that she can pamper herself. If all else fails a gift certificate to her favorite store.

    Good luck I know how hard it can be to find a gift for a really hard person (I have no clue what to get my sister)

  • Gift card to her salon or favorite resturant. I know it's impersonal but that how it has to be with these people.

  • a portrait or anything by the kids works in our house.

    my MIL is like that too... but as soon as we tell her the kids made it or their 'mark' is on it...she LOVES it.
