When we asked you all what gift guides you wanted to see this year one of the most requested was a gift ideas for in-laws! I thought we would start with the hardest to shop for (because I agree!). I tried to think about what my in-laws truly love and in my case that is their grandchildren/family, entertaining and their pets. When I think about family I think that these themes probably ring true among all of us – family and bringing people together. Two things that our parents do very well! This year I really wanted to focus on fewer, better gifts. We always inundate you with gift ideas but this year I really want to showcase gifts that I think will be a true hit with your loved ones. Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas…
I like to say I’m a collector of cookbooks but no other cookbook brings me back like Half-baked Harvest. Not only does it have an incredible number of recipes but every one is delicious. If your mother-in-law loves to cook then trust me she needs this! Pair with the most beautiful serving platter!
Last year I bought Dave’s mom and stepdad these exact matching monogrammed Williams-Sonoma aprons. Kind of cheesy but I’m so surprised by how much they wear them! I feel like you never realize how badly you need an apron until you stain your brand new white top.
A coffee cup that keeps temperature EXACTLY how you like it. Who wouldn’t want this?!
Every Christmas my sister makes each of our family members a different Minted calendar and it is honestly the gift that gives all year. Each month brings back so many beautiful memories and they have so many fun options to choose from! Whether you have kids or not this is a great way to remember family milestones (weddings, birthdays, anniversaries), specific events, holidays and other memories.
I also love the idea of a letterpress of a drawing from your kids (isn’t this genius?). Because let’s be honest, Charlie’s drawings are sub par but a gold foil letterpress would make them works of art.
An ornament of their furry pal. You know they would love this.
A nana pillow because your mother-in-law will get excited to pull this out every. single. year.
