Mother's Day is coming up. Now, I really love my future mother-in-law. She and I get along well and I have a few gift ideas in mind. But… do I get her something? And if so, what?
Is there etiquette to this cuz there is no Hallmark Card for it.
I love this question because it not only applies to future mother-in-laws, but any woman in your life who's become a mother figure to you or your own kids. So what to get that "love you like my mother even though you aren't actually my mother" person on Mother's Day? Here are some of our thoughts…
Tribesmaid suggested a handkerchief inscribed with how you feel about her. Like this from Etsy seller Aprettystitch.
I got this "hugs + kisses" tea towel for my own mother, and my sister who is also a mother.
Give the gift of Stickygrams — custom magnets made from your Instagram photos. Use the code "MOMGRAMS" to get three for the price of two — one for your mom, one for your mom-in-law, one for you!
Remind her she has your heart every time she makes on of delicious meals.
Or you could be more literal with your "you are loved" message with this awesome art book.
Anything with a chalkboard becomes an adorable way to say "I love you." This teapot would work, or for coffee-loving mothers there's this guy.
Find a cute photo fixture like this one and make her a gift of photos from your engagement session, or photos of her family (with you included of course).
Okay, those are our suggestions. What are you getting your not-exactly-mom person in your life for Mother's Day?
