Don't know how it happens every single year, but December has a way of creeping up on unsuspecting gift-givers. Not to mention, there's a special kind of panic that comes with finding the perfect gift for you mother-in-law (or almost MIL). It's not because she can be difficult (though...well, let's not go there), but because giving her a sweet and thoughtful gift can communicate exactly how you feel about being a part of her family. So, yeah, pressure.
The custom of exchanging gift is a sweet gesture to develop relationships and to demonstrate how much you care. Presents are a great medium to express those thoughts, which you could not expression in words.
A fun gift idea is a birthstone bracelet. Featuring the beautiful hues of classic birthstones, this bracelet can represent each of her children with a small initial on a leaf. Children’s birthstones are a great way to beautifully represent motherhood and create a lovely gift. With three options for band color and as many stones as you like, it will make a fantastic gift.
If your mom is a fan of the royals, she will melt into the perfect curtsy over this book on the fashion evolution of the British monarchy by Elizabeth Holmes, former senior style reporter and columnist for The Wall Street Journal. For fans of Holmes's popular Instagram series, "So Many Thoughts," this book has been hotly anticipated for a long time. Bonus points if you also gift your leading lady a Kate Middleton-inspired hatband (IYKYK).
