We don’t buy for the adults in our extended family (apart from grandparents/IL’s) but my SIL is hosting us this year. She’s a really lovely person and will put in a lot of effort on the day. We are already taking food for the evening (cheese etc) and a bottle of champagne.
What does she like? I would like the following things if it were me. A Yankee Candle. ( I know what you say, but I love getting a nice candle) Some expensive bubble bath. L'Occitane hand cream. A bottle of my favourite spirit ( does she like gin? There's so many different ones now. ) A book token. A voucher for a florists. If she likes music, get her An iTunes voucher. People think vouchers are an easy option but I LOVE a voucher. Something I can choose for myself........a book I wouldn't usually have bought, or a nice bunch of flowers in January.......... Does she garden? How about a set with bowl and bulbs she can do herself or that are already planted? Hyacinth are glorious smelling and lovely in early Spring in a house. Yes, that's what I would get her. Infact, I'm going to ask my husband to get me one for Christmas !!
