For your mother-in-law

Our best advice for this gifting scenario is to keep it sweet and keep it simple. Some sweet and simple ideas below!


This idea has already appeared a couple places within on our gift guides, but none the less, it also makes for a great gift for your Mother-in-law!  With hundreds of topics to choose from and impeccable gift wrapping, an Assouline book is a solid choice.  Pick a topic close to her heart. also offers free shipping and free gift wrap on orders over $100!

Keeping on the topic of books, this book is a fool-proof gift for anyone!  It aggregates The New York Times covers each year of the giftee’s birthday.  Custom order your giftee’s birthday at Uncommon Goods for $100.
Another book idea (last one we promise)!  Artifact uprising enables you to custom create a beautiful hardbound book of your own.  Perhaps you can gather some pictures from a recent trip you all took?  Or maybe compile some pictures of your wedding? or your children?  The clean and simple aesthetic of Artifact uprising makes them coffee-table worthy!
An Hermès scarf is another fool proof gift for just about anyone, but especially your mother-in-law!  If they already have a collection then adding another scarf to the loot is a perfect idea since each one is so unique!  If they don’t have a collection yet, this first one will be very special!  Hermès scarfs come in so many sizes, prices, and designs.  Pick a size that fits your price point and pick a design that harkens back to her interests!  For example, the one above is great for a teacher (get it? ABC’s!).
Another gift which has been placed multiple places within our gift guides, but with good reason!  Stubbs and Wootton custom shoes are a classic she will have in her wardrobe for a lifetime!


The athleisure gift is basically a lay-up gift for anyone now-a-days, but can be an especially great gift for your mother-in-law.
Tory Burch Sport has excellent quality and amazing (free) packaging.  They are also relatively new to the market so your gift will be see as original.  If your mother-in-law isn’t the “preppy” type, try these alternative brands: outdoor voicesalo yogafika.
Better sleep, better hair, better skin!  The value proposition of the Night pillow ($150) is sure to resonate with almost any woman, thus making it a perfect gift for your mother-in-law!
The chicest thing to happen to reading glasses.  These Izipizi glasses ship directly from Paris and come in an array of colors!  The glasses can also be found in select concept stores around the world such as Le Bon Marché or Merci in Paris, Harrods and Selfridges in London, the MoMA, Dover Street Market and Barneys in New York, or Isetan in Tokyo.
