What kind of gifts are good for the inlaws?  What are some things you've bought them in the past and what are ideas to get?

For MIL and FIL we make photo album books. All the siblings send me pics of the grand kids, pictures, and fun interview questions about grandma and grandpa, then I put it all together in a book. Over the years, we've given them a few. It's always their favorite gift.

For BILs and SILs family, we do family games and passes to fun places.

We don't do gifts for siblings, just our parents. We usually find a book or kitchen gadget or something along those lines for mil and fil. And every second year The Vinyl Cafe with Stuart McLean comes to town so we buy them tickets. On the off years we look for tickets to other shows they'd like.

For my mom and MIL I made a customized photo book from Walmart.  They both really liked it.  This year I got my MIL one of those Charlie Brown Christmas trees because she always gets these crazy looking Christmas trees.   For my FIL I leave that up to DH because I have no idea what to ever buy him.  We only buy our parents for adults.  There's so many adults in both of our families and I swear there's a new child every year to buy for...lol  No one has enough money to buy everyone something.
