You don't need to worry about what to get at all as any gift, and I really mean ANYTHING, will be misunderstood and judged upon if you have really horrible inlaws.

So, stop wasting time, get her a bread loaf and you are sorted!

Models made of brass
Plastic gnomes & windmill for the garden
New doorbell that plays 7 different tunes
China ornaments of couples entwined - preferably naked

I'll start with the obvious...
Chocolate hot water bottle
Ashtray for motorbike
Reusable Condoms
Subscription to NUTS magazine (for MIL, obviously)
One of those big china models of a shire horse complete with leather harness pulling a wooden gipsy caravan
Voucher for Anne Summers - or better still, a present from Anne Summers.
A mini skirt
A blow up doll (I'm on a bit of a theme, here, aren't I?)
One of those inflatable light up 6' tall models of Homer Simpson to put in the front garden at Christmas
Just about any of those imitation stone statues they sell in garden centres - but preferably a donkey (then you can tell fil it reminds you of him!!!)
An indoor fountain, preferably with fibre optic lights
One of those moving light up pictures they're selling at the moment in shopping malls (my kids are desperate for one!)
Remnant of pink shag pile carpet for their bathroom
I'll try & think of more...

How about matching headstones? As we all know, it can be very comforting to have a little help with those "final expenses".....<puts on best Thora Hird voice>
