Any newly married folks not sure what to get for their in-laws for Christmas?? I’ve given a handful of presents to my in-laws while my husband and I were dating that I feel like I’ve run out of ideas!! I’m open to any and all suggestions! What are you gifting your in-laws? Are you doing a couple’s gift or gifting each person a gift? What is an acceptable amount to spend?

    Every parent is getting a photo album from the wedding this year! In the past, we just gave them gifts jointly like normal. We usually spend $100+ on each of my parents and closer to $25-$50 on his parents but we contribute a lot more throughout the year to dinners, etc. with his parents and never pay for anything with mine. I'd just shop like you normally would, like it's a birthday and something they want/need.

    Another bride giving both sets of parents (mine and my in-laws) photo albums lol. Seems to be a trend on here.

    I haven't really thought about what to get anyone for Xmas yet so this is a post I shall follow. Perhaps another nice idea besides photo album is like a photo frame ornament or something

    Like a lot of other people we're planning on giving both sets of parents an album and maybe some framed prints for Christmas.

    In the past I've given them coffee samplers because they really like coffee, and since it's something that gets used up I can keep giving them different ones. Is there anything like that that they like?

    We do a joint gift. One year we did a wine basket with their favorite wines and the last few years we've been doing this liqueur that you can't buy in the U.S. because that's his mom's favorite. We usually add some smaller items for fun. I don't really think about the price but it generally has ranged anywhere from $100 to $200.

    My father in law likes Keurig so one Christmas I bought him his favorite k-cup pods with biscoff cookies and a nice coffee mug!

    I made a personalized calendar with family pictures for each month and the entire family’s birthdays marked. Also got a personalized family Christmas ornament & a gift card for their favorite restaurant.

    Before FH and I were engaged, I got his parents a sherpa bedspread blanket and a heart-shaped wooden spoon set for his grandmother. I would recommend getting them something you know they'll use and like!

    The amount to spend is all about your preference, there's no right or wrong amount. Whatever you're comfortable with and can afford! We've done both couples gifts and individual gifts. My in-laws are so hard to buy for!! one year we got them a Keurig, which they loved once we showed them how to use. Other years we've gotten them things relating to hobbies they have, my mother-in-law likes to sew so I got her a bag to carry her sewing machine in last year and my father-in-law stuff for fishing. a nice gift might be a "mother's book" of photos from your wedding!!
