What on earth can I buy DM and MIL?
They don't like smellies, they don't garden or appreciate nice scarves etc.

I thought maybe a photo book of grand children? But that's a bit boring?

A nice diary?

I'm at a loss!

Any ideas?

Maybe a framed photo of Grand children?

Mine with be having a photo of the 3 of us in a nice frame with a jam and cheese hamper. They both love smelly cheese but their husbands dont so they dont buy it often. I will find some nice crackers and biscuits too.
My mum will have a scarf too and MIL will have pjs, they always request these

Purses are a good idea, I'm going to do calendars this year!

My MIL is getting a swift kick in the pants.

Is the present for MIL a joint one between you and your OH? If so I would leave it up to him- it's his mother after all.

cheekycherryza Sat 10-May-14 08:16:34

Yes from me and OH. He must sort her out and I suppose I'll have to do something from DD. Not that I want to. I see her more often than I see OH. Grrrrrrr!
