  • My MIL recently bought a super fancy sewing machine that does embroidery so recently we've been getting her CDs with embroidery designs and/or thread colors that she doesn't have. She also loves horses and rocks/gems/minerals and listens to books on CD in the car, so in the past we've gotten her stationary with horses on it, calendar with horses, necklace and earrings with red sea glass, audiobooks. Last year I made a calendar with photos of my daughter and my niece.
    What are her interests? When you know what her interests are then you can go from there.
