The time has come for you to meet your mother-in-law, again. Whether you two like each other or not, you just can’t be creative enough when it comes to mother-in-law gifts. If you are tired of buying the same presents over and over again (and if you don’t even know if she likes them or not), check out this list of perfect mother-in-law gifts we have prepared for you.

Note that not all of the gifts are universal, so be careful to choose wisely. Think about your mother-in-law’s personality and habits, and you will easily find the perfect gifts between the following few.

Air diffuser

There’s nothing like a fresh and unusually beautiful scent to start the day with. Diffusers come in all kinds of smells, so you can choose a cinnamon-carnation-ginger smell for a reminiscence of Christmas, or a lemon-coconut combination for the freshest summer vibes. Tastes differ, so think about what scent would best suit your mother-in-law’s home.

Fitness tracker

This one is perfect for women who are in a fitness craze, always looking for new ways to exercise and new fitness gadgets. A fitness tracker gives you information about your pulse, the total amount of calories you’ve burned, the amount of kilometers you’ve done and it works as a watch, too.


A devoted housewife is always in need of new kitchen equipment. If your mother-in-law is a fan of cooking, providing her with quality Kitchenaid tools is the best possible gift. Everything from stand mixers through espresso machines to food choppers will work great, because whatever saves time in the kitchen is a great gift for a housewife.

Self-chilling wine glasses

A revolutionary invention of self-chilling wine glasses made drinking wine in the hot, summer days an even better experience. If your mother-in-law is a wine lover, then giving her a set of these glasses as a gift will surely leave you with the title of best daughter-in-law. If you through a bottle of Pinot Grigio along with the glasses, then this title will be yours forever.

Tiny plant set

For plant lovers, a perfectly cute and adorable present can be a set of tiny pot plants. These plants are easy to grow, take far too little effort to take care of, and are perfect desk decorations. For a mother-in-law that already has a lot of plants, these baby plants can only be a refreshing addition to her usual household greenery.

A spa experience kit

If you really wish to run for the title of best daughter-in-law, then gifting your mother-in-law with a weekend in the spa with all massages and saunas included is the best possible choice. However, if you are not this ambitious, a quality replacement can be a spa experience kit, full of handmade products made from natural ingredients such as lavender, shea butter and goat milk. It’s not as good as going to the actual spa, but you can be sure that your mother-in-law will love it.

A throw blanket

You can never have enough throw blankets. They are warm, cozy and soft. What else do you need from a gift? When choosing a throw blanket, you should imagine the design and atmosphere of your mother-in-law’s home. Simple, one-colored blankets go well with minimalistic designs, so a scarlet red or emerald green can complete the elegant look of the room, while for more traditionally designed houses full of wood and colorful accents, knitted wool blankets are the perfect choice.

Don’t forget to think about your mother-in-law’s needs and interests first. Imagine what her usual day would look like, and what she would like to have to make her day even better. In addition, you want to gift her something that will remind her of you in a pleasant manner, so make sure that you buy that gift with care. A touch of effort is all you need to make your mother-in-law smile every time she thinks of you.
