Finding a great Christmas gift for your daughter-in-law is of great consequence, even if you don't know her well. It's important to support your son's choice of a wife and welcome your daughter-in-law into the family. A great gift speaks volumes that you and your daughter-in-law might not know how to put into words just yet.
If you truly don't know her, your son will be the source of best information. Ask him what her interests and tastes are and even if they don't mesh with yours, this great gift is all about her. By seriously considering her wants and needs she will get "it" - you care.
Suppose she's into scrapbooking. A whole new world opens! If your daughter-in-law loves creating in the kitchen, scout out unique kitchen accessories, a collection of unusual spices or rare cookbooks.
Women love pampering. You can't go wrong by selecting pampering gifts for your daughter-in-law. Make a bath basket with loofah, bath oils, scented soaps and candles and a super-soft bath towel. Get her a gift certificate for a manicure/ pedicure or a Swedish massage.
Does your daughter-in-law love music and art? A pair of concert tickets and invitation to dinner afterwards says, "Let's bond!" Is there a local theatre, which shows artsy films? Get tickets for her and your son. This will go a long way to show her you approve of the marriage. Dinner theatres, ballet or shows on ice are great gifts for your artsy daughter-in-law.
Hats are always fun gifts! Stretch out from somber browns and blacks and get your daughter-in-law a fun hat in lime green, burgundy or soft pastel yellow. How about a froufrou hat for the cocktail hour? The more bling - crystals, ostrich feathers - the better. From the western straw hat to the classic fedora, hat's are in.
Giving your daughter-in-law photos of your son, her husband, when he was a kid is guaranteed to get you a lot of mileage. Sort through your photo albums and find a great picture, perhaps of him playing sports or all dressed up in church clothes. Get a silver or crystal frame and voila! what a gift.
Keep in mind, "One picture is worth a thousand words." If you're tempted to make a scrapbook highlighting your son's childhood, think again. Wouldn't it be better to include a coupon inviting your daughter-in-law for an afternoon where the two of you look at old albums?
