Christmas presents for a mother-in-law can include coupon books, photo albums and beauty trinkets. The gift that is chosen for a mother-in-law should be reflective of her personality and should be chosen to suit her needs.
A mother-in-law who is frugal may enjoy a book of coupons. These can be coupons that are made by the giver for things such as a home-cooked meal or a relaxing afternoon at the spa. They can also be true coupons books that are purchased from a coupon manufacturing company. If the mother-in-law is one that is a family person, she may enjoy a photo album. The photo album should be a higher-end variety to show that effort was put into the project. Pictures of the mother-in-law's children or grandchildren can be included in the photo album. To add extra thought to the gift, pictures of the mother-in-law can be included in the album. If the mother-in-law is one who is up-to-date on fashions and trends, she may enjoy a beauty trinket. This can be anything from a simple silver bracelet to an elaborate brooch that can be worn with her favorite outfits.
