We got them stuff for their apartment up here, only to find out that they are going to rent it out and not stay there any more. Chat Icon

Re: What are you getting your IL's for the holidays?

They bought an RV, so I got them an RV-related gift. Mind you, I know jack about RVs, but we tried.

I got them - a decorative pillow for the living room of the RV, an atlas of the US, Canada, and Mexico, a picnic basket for 2 (with wine glasses, plates, utensils, napkins, and a cork screw), an RV ornament someone here gave me a link to, and a couple of books - Frommer's Exploring America by RV and Cooking Aboard your RV.

I hope they like it.

We also made them a photo book from our wedding.

A year's subscription to Netflix?

You can buy them several months of lotto tickets in advance. Chat Icon No idea why I thought of that...

I got MIL a huge Estee Lauder gift set. that's the only brand of makeup she wears, so I know she will love it.

I bought the digital photo frames. Newegg.com had a great deal that you received the free memory card with the frame.

Making a calendar on Shutterfly.
Got my MIL a Homedics Nature sound machine. She says she has trouble sleeping. She wanted to borrow one of DSs music boxes one night.
FIL..probably something to do with wine.

They also just got a place in FL. So, maybe a GC to Bed Bath and Beyond so they can pick out things.Chat Icon Chat Icon
