Christmas gift for mother-in-law?

She has helped so much my first year of being a mom and spared no expense in buying things for mydaughter. I appreciate her a lot, and I want my gift to show it. She's a big movie goer, so I was thinking gift ceritficate to the movie theater. But that seems a little insensitive, ya know? I want something special, unique...aaaaaargh this is mind-boggling! Please help!

  • our society has hijacked christmas and made us all believe its about the dollar amount we spend, i bet it would mean ten times more to her if you were to sit down and right her a letter telling her how greatful you are and the things she has done that have ment the most to you

  • check out getting her a locket...i got my mother in law a 6 picture locket ball so she can hold not only her two sons photos, but photos of their wives, and her two grandchildren. she adored it!

  • I like reddforsyth's idea. Add a personal Thank You note along with it to express your true appriciation for her and what she has done.

  • i think you should look into a personalized photo album they can do now, or look into companies that create slideshows for wedding set to music...and then fill it with memories and stuff for her. Make a big production out of giving it to her, flowers etc...and yes be sure to write a very hertfelt letter to her letting her know how wonderful she is.
    trust me girl...MIL's like her are rare, cherish her. :o) happy for you.
