What should I buy my sister in law for Christmas?

My sister in law is a vice principal at a school that teaches english as a second language. She loves to read, loves animals, has a dog and a cat, is into vampires, and role playing games. Well I have bought her two gifts the first one was a mug that said teacher. I thought cheap and simple. Well she got one from my husband before I met him lol. Then I bought her a tea pot that has the flower tea bags. I found out she has one. Any ideas? I really would like to get her something she does not have.

  • Yes. She has tons of books and I do not see her often enough to know what she does not have.

  • Does she have kids? How old are they?

    I have seen a family game called Table Topics. (try amazon) It is a box of cards you put on the table and it has conversation starters on the cards.

  • I have also seen some kind of beanbag looking book holder. It sits on the counter and holds your book so you can eat and read.

    what about a really nice book light? or a special bookmark?

  • Go on a shopping mall website that has alot of stores and choose a nice gift online. There are so many things to choose from. I can recommend some if you wish. I just ordered my mother (the woman who has everything and needs nothing...LOL) a customized framed picture. She has a favorite picture of a deceased pet cat, peeking out from a bag under the Christmas tree. This photo will be infused in crystal glass. I've seen the samples. They are gorgeous! I can't wait until she gets it. Maybe something like that would be good for your SIL.

  • I would give her an amazon gift card, she can get all kinds of books and they are less expensive than at a traditional book store, so more for the money.
