  • I got my mother in law a $4 glass platter at walmart and then went and had their last name engraved into it. Total cost about $20! They entertain a lot. Also a great gift for weddings!

  • I have never had the pleasure meeting mine, she passed before I ever met my husband. Good luck and enjoy her friendship while she is here.

  • Mine loves things that she can use to add essence to her house. Candles, or pretty much anything in the Home Living aisle at walmart works for her. I also got her some collage photo frames because she loves those and wants to hang a lot of pictures, so why not put a lot of pictures in one frame? Hope you find something great! :)

  • I got her a soap dispenser and sponge holder to match her kitchen decor. It's cheap I admit, but it does match.

    BUT, the real gift will be a trip to a spa. DH and I and his brothers and their families are all chipping in for it. I think she'll enjoy it.
