Some of these gift ideas will help perfect her flower garden, others will come in handy in the kitchen, a few will highlight the things she loves most (her grandkids), and several will enhance her self-care routine. Even if you feel like you're just getting to know her (remember, all good things in life take time), you can opt for something classic (think: pretty vases and flower bouquets) if personalized and sentimental gifts aren't your style ... yet. Regardless of where your relationship stands, all of these picks, no matter how inexpensive or luxe, will give your mother-in-law (or future mother-in-law, even) the TLC she deserves on Christmas and in the year ahead.

If you have ever cooked breakfast, you’ll know how much mess it makes, and how much time and space it takes up. So give Mom a helpful Christmas gift with this breakfast sandwich maker. All she has to do is layer the ingredients in the appropriate levels, close it up, and a couple of minutes later she has perfectly made breakfast. Or…you could do it for her!
Does your mom love the super cozy vibe all year round? Does she also love unique, handcrafted gifts? Then you really should be shopping at The Citizenry (once you start, you won't be able to stop). This particular blanket was handwoven by master weavers in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes. Each throw takes up to a week to complete and was made exclusively in a fair trade environment.
Our best Christmas gifts for Mom aren't just beautiful and fun to look at—they're practical too. We've got at-home massagers to keep her feeling good, diffusers to keep her air fresh and clean, fresh herb "growhouses" perfect as gardening gift ideas, and warm blankets galore to keep happy and warm all season long. If you are, in fact, in the mood for something a bit more fanciful (or delicious—say, a homemade food gift?) we can help you out there too. A chocolate-filled gift basket, a hot-sauce subscription, and even a wine delivery service (the perfect wine lover gift!) are just a few of the coolest "just for fun" ideas on our list. Pressed for time? You can always check out our favorite last-minute presents and DIY gifts, most of which can be ordered or made just days before Christmas. We have you covered, because whatever type of Mom you have, we know she is someone that will appreciate anything you give her just because it came from you.
Serumkind's five-piece mini gift set is far better than any hotel toiletries that mom would have used during her (now canceled) travels. Each tiny bottle serves a different purpose in her skin-care routine. For instance, the green serum is packed with Iceland Moss Drop, which hydrates and soothes, while the bright blue one is made with niacinamide to smooth and strengthen the skin's barrier against harsh environmental elements.
That crusty frying pan that your mom has had for years? It's time to get rid of it. Give her an upgrade with the Always Pan from Our Place, which comes in six colors: Spice, Lavender, Steam, Char, Blue Salt, and Sage. The pan has a modular lid, nesting spatula, and nesting steamer basket, so it's practically an all-in-one piece of cooking equipment.
