Gift Guide for In Laws

I know that sometimes finding good gifts can be a challenge, especially for the in laws. I wanted to give you all my top picks for both Mother in Law and Father in Law. I also encourage you to reach out to your spouses parents or even ask your spouse what you think they might like. I will link different options for several types of people since I know every person enjoys different things.

Some great gift ideas for a Mother in Law who enjoys all things cozy would include warm blankets, slippers, decorative pillows for the couch, candles, a favorite book, essential oils, or even a nice pair of leggings, pullover or pjs.  I linked a couple different options below.

For the hostess/Chef Mother in Law, you could go with a nice set of bowls or plates, an instant pot, a monogrammed apron, nice wine glasses or bottle of their favorite wine, oven mitts, decorative pillows, nice candles, any type of baking utensils, or a nice Christmas decoration for their home.

If your Mother in Law loves fashion, then going with a nice poncho, coat/jacket, a nice pair of boots, cardigans, sweaters, winter hats, scarves, and gloves, pullovers, or monogrammed clothing are perfect gifts. Just make sure you know what size she wears. Nordstrom has free shipping and returns so they are always great to go with. I also love this little boutique called I love Jewelry which has the cutest monogrammed jewelry and clothes to pick from.

Father in law’s can be even more tricky to shop for around Christmas. I would say for a general rule when shopping for men, you can’t go wrong with a gift card to a favorite store or restaurant. You also can’t go wrong with a nice pair of slippers or a tool kit.

For the Father in Law who is adventurous and likes the outdoors, there are several gifts you can get them. My top picks would be any type of camping gear like tents, packaged food, hiking backpacks, pans they can use while camping, fishing gear, etc. The options are endless here. You can find most of these type of items on Amazon. I added some of my top picks here. We got my father in law a beanie with a light on it last year for Christmas and some hiking socks.

For the nerd type Father in Law you can’t go wrong with a good book by an author they like, board games, or even a movie they love. Most of the time nerds have a specific hobby too so figure out what that is and you can get them things for their hobby.

For the business man/fashionable father in law you can get them a nice briefcase, items for their office, slippers, a nice coat, dress shirts, dress shoes, or even some dress ties. I linked some of my favorite items in men’s fashion right now.

I know it can be tough finding the perfect gift, but hope this helps you all out with finding gifts. When in doubt ask the person what they want or grab a gift card and a nice card.

Merry Christmas!
