Flowering Tea Gift Set
I had never heard of flowering tea until last year, when my daughter raved about how much fun (and delicious it was) after she had it at a friend’s house.
I sent one to my mother-in-law last year, and she enjoyed it so much that she sent me a picture of the tea blossom in full bloom.

Relaxing Gifts for the Stressed Mother in Law
What woman doesn’t love (and deserve) to be pampered? I’m sure your mother in law has worked hard this holiday season – buying presents, cooking holiday meals, wrapping presents, decorating – all on top of her normal schedule!
Gain points with your mother in law by giving her the gift of relaxation this holiday season.
Bamboo Bath Caddy Tray
What’s more relaxing than a nice long soak in a hot bubble bath, complete with a good book to read and a glass of wine?
Except – where do you put the book? And worrying about knocking the wine glass off the edge of the tub makes for a less-than-enjoyable experience.
This bamboo caddy is the perfect solution to let any woman have the ultimate worry-free, relaxing bath.

Pamper your mother in law with a back and neck massage – that doesn’t involve you actually touching her!

Practical Christmas Gift Ideas for Mother in Law
If your MIL is the practical sort, you need to be extra-careful when choosing a present. She doesn’t want anything too fussy or probably too expensive.
My mother-in-law fits in this category, and I’ve found that the best gifts are very useful – an upgrade of an item that she already owns. Something that she wouldn’t spend the money on for herself, but that she can use almost every day.
Automatic Soap Dispenser
Top pick for the woman who prefers a useful sort of present! This is one of those gifts that she’ll use every day, but wouldn’t splurge on for herself.
Everyone has to wash their hands, but if you think about it, those soap pumps are pretty germy.
Everyone in my family loves using a no-touch soap dispenser – we’d never consider going back to a regular soap dispenser in the kitchen.
No more touching the soap dispenser with germy hands – just put your hands underneath and the soap squirts right out.
A practical yet thoughtful Christmas present that your mother in law will use daily!
Reversible Heated Blanket Throw – Choice of Colors
Most likely, the practical woman turns down the thermostat in the winter to save on energy bills. So she spends most of her winter bundled up in her warmest clothes but still isn’t quite warm enough.
This energy-efficient heated throw is the perfect gift. It’s incredibly soft and feels very luxurious – it’s the perfect size and weight to use while watching tv or reading.
It has a 3 hour cut-off timer, so she doesn’t have to worry about it running too long.
And it’s still light enough to use without heat during the warmer months.
It comes in your choice of 4 different colors.
Keeps her warm and cozy no matter how cold it is outside!
Dried Fruit Gift Basket
I’ve found that gift baskets are an excellent idea for the practical mother-in-law. After all, everyone has to eat!
This elegant dried fruit and nut tray is a great choice. It’s healthy and gourmet all at once.
And, since the fruits are dried, she doesn’t have to worry about being able to eat them before they spoil like she would with a fresh fruit basket.
It’s not overwhelmingly huge; just the right amount to be luxurious yet still fall into the practical range.
Funny Mother in Law Gifts
Make her laugh out loud – or at least smile – when she opens one of these funny Christmas gifts.
Funny Wine Gifts for Mother in Law
If she enjoys wine, then you’re in luck – there are always plenty of fun wine-related mother in law Christmas gifts that you can give. You can give her one of these presents by itself or you can combine it with a bottle of two of her favorite wines for a splurge.
Gifts for the Mother in Law Who Enjoys Cooking

Gourmet Panini Press
Upgrade her sandwich to a gourmet dining experience with a panini press!
A panini press transforms even the most humble sandwich into a delicious treat by grilling and toasting the bread to perfection while melting the cheese and heating the meat.
Paninis are perfect with soup on a cold winter’s day or evening, or just right with a salad during the warmer months.
