6 Thoughtful Gifts for Your MIL 

If you're looking for a sweet wedding or Christmas gift for the woman who raised the man of your dreams, here's some inspiration! 
A small gesture goes a long way, but an intentional, sentimental gift goes a long way too! We know the relationship between brides and their mother-in-laws can be tricky, but it can also be very special. On your wedding day (or rehearsal dinner day), or during the holidays, you can celebrate her and thank her for all she's done for you and your husband with a gift that shows you know her, you love her, and you want to make this occasion meaningful for her! Here are 6 gift ideas we really love for mother-in-laws/mom-in-loves everywhere!       
1. Personalized crystal photos  
These gifts are so classy and unique! You can also add a worded message to be engraved. Enclose a family photo with all of you included, or just a photo of you and your hubby, or just a photo of him and her! She'll love it and it will make a beautiful display addition to any style home.                 
Find this layout at Crystal Gifts for just under $70!                                                                                                                                                                                                  
crystal photo gift                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
2. Star map commemorating your big day or his birthday or hers                                                                                                                                                          
These gifts also make a beautiful decor addition to any home; if your MIL is a night-sky-lover, she'll love this! It's a map of the charted stars on any given date from any given location. You can customize it with a personal message and also choose the color.                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Find this particular map at The Night Sky starting at $60!

3. Birthstone necklace (with her kids' birthstones, yours and his, the three of yours, just his, etc.)
Jewelry is also a great choice for a gift. There's endless options for personalized necklaces, but we love the idea of a birthstone necklace because it's unique and adds an extra element of beauty and personalization!                                                               
Find this charming necklace on Etsy for $35!

4. Wooden Recipe Book
If your mom-in-law is one of the best cooks you know, or has helped you learn to cook, or has simply fed you many delicious meals, consider giving her something for her kitchen and personalizing it! We love the idea of a cookbook that will last through the years, where she can add and share recipes!                                                                                                                             
Find this wooden cookbook on Etsy for $26!

5. Orchid Flower
Moms love plants (and maybe you do too). Orchid flowers are beautiful, elegant, simple, and live for years with proper care, so you could get her this as a way to say thanks for all the growth she has inspired in your life! 
Find this white orchid at UrbanStems for $65.
