Christmas Gift Guide: Presents to win over your mother-in-law
Wed, 14 December 2016 8:43AM
Mother-in-laws are notoriously hard to buy for – even if you really like yours! It’s kind of like getting a present for your mum, except with added pressure because you stole their son/daughter from them. Kidding! Basically you know them relatively well, but not well enough to, say, buy something REALLY personal. So we often resort to the usual Chrissy gifts – chocolates, a scented candle, tea towels…
This year, break out of the box and get your mum-in-law one of these treats. We’re not exactly guaranteeing they’ll completely win her over… but we’re close to it.
Spa.com.au Gift Voucher
Normally we’d insist you shy away from gift vouchers, but this spa.com.au version is different. Rather than just offering cash in a card to spend on anything and everything, this voucher is purely for lush spa experiences, and is accepted at a variety of locations around Australia. Your MIL can try a hot stone massage, or renew her skin with a signature facial – there’s even fitness sessions like yoga and personal training to choose from.
NUXE Christmas Bon Bon
French brand NUXE is luxury with a low price tag – the products smell and feel fantastic, like high-end beauty, but are wallet friendly and therefore the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys the finer things in life. This bon bon features a delish hand cream and the hero NUXE product, Huile Prodigieuse, a multi-use dry oil that can be applied on body, hair, and face.
Natio have a fantastic Christmas offering this year, with most of their gift packs coming with completely usable totes or makeup bags. This Lush set is our pick though – how fab is that beach bag! We’d buy this for the bag alone – but the products included are equally lovely, with a body lotion, face moisturiser, hand and nail cream and lip balm all present and accounted for.
Jo Malone London Cologne Collection
Got some cash to spend? This cologne collection from Jo Malone London is impossible to dislike. Featuring five mini scents from the iconic cologne range – and yes, Lime, Basil and Mandarin, the hero scent, is in there – it’s the perfect gift for the mother-in-law you adore.
MOR Nostalgic Treasures TravelMOR Nostalgic Treasures Travel, $24.95
Another brand with an amazing Christmas gifting range this year, all of MORs box gift sets are wrapped in a gorgeous printed ribbon, and housed in a pastel metallic tin. No need for unleashing your gift wrapping skills here! It’s all done for you already.
