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. Gift Voucher


Spa & Wellness Gift Card from, starting at $50

Normally we’d insist you shy away from gift vouchers, but this 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


Nuxe Christmas Bon Bon, $19.99

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 Lush


Natio Lush, $39.95

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


Jo Malone London Cologne Collection, $175

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 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.
