  • Last year I made a calendar at of the grandkids. The LOVED it! This year I made them a photo book at snapfish. We actually saw them several times this year so I was able to include a ton of pictures of them with the kids.

  • If I can't find a personal gift I always go to Fairy Tale Brownies and pick up some fantastic treats. They are packaged in a beautiful display and are the best brownies. They can be found at I don't know if it's too late to order, but it's worth looking into!

  • Flowers for her grave.My MIL passed 5 yrs ago.Never knew my FIL as he passed before I met hubby.
    But I would always get her stuff that went with her hobbies and interests(puzzles, books, stuff like that)

  • My inlaws are impossible to buy for. They have never liked anything we got for them, so we just do gift cards now. I know it's kind of thoughtless gift but I got tired of racking my brain an searching for a great gift to get the insincere "oh, thanks" response when they open their gifts.

  • My MIL requested something homemade this year, so we made her a small flat box, painted and decorated it, glued on some pretty things, and put a check inside.

  • This year I got my MIL bath and beauty products, such as: body wash, foot scrub, loofah and I'm putting together a basket together since I'm awful at wrapping. I also got a xmas frame last year at a after xmas sale and I'm putting a picture of my daughter in it

  • Well, my MIL is lucky she received a card with wallet photos of the girls. She doesn't even deserve that much.

    For my FIL we found a beautifully framed work of art that will look lovely in his home. It is masculine, yet his wife will like it, too. He is also getting large photos of his grandchildren and only great-grandchild.
