I'd put it in savings.
Fix our cars and save the rest.
I got 1200$ unexpectedly, I fixed my brake lines (which had ruptured) and got my eyebrows done.
The rest I bought clothes (I REALLY needed a new couple bras, I wear FF cups and my bras are like 50$ each, I put it off for years) got medicines I needed and paid off some debt. Hid the rest. :)

If you didn't need it why would he send it?
Anyways, OP, I'd go to Disneyland for a couple days and stay in the Grand Californian or whatever the hotel is called.
I'm sure your FIL thought it was generous of him and a lot of money. I sure hope you appreciated it. You sound a tad ungrateful the way you worded your reply.
This. Stash it away.
Quoting kikibix:Save it for emergencies. Surprise money is best just left alone and forgotten.
