    Ideas for MIL for Mother's Day

    Advertisements
    I'm trying to decide what to send my MIL for Mother's Day. DH just left on deployment last week, and he's her baby and I know she's taking it pretty hard. I want to get her something meaningful, maybe personalized that she can wear (like jewelry) to remind her or him, without spending an arm and a leg, and without being too gaudy (she's a very simple lady). Any ideas?

    Go to Things Remembered and get her a dog tag with his name on one side and "Always in my heart" on the other.

    I was just wondering what I was going to do for my MIL. DH isn't deployed, but she does so much for us, and me.

    Hmmm. Does a lot for you. Does she like pampering? Like a massage, mani-pedi type person?

    If she does, I would do something Spa-ish like that, but do it WITH her, not just a gift card or whatever.

    I have NO idea I'd have to ask DH if she likes those things. She's a really crafty person, she has a room dedicated to crafts. She's always making something. She makes everyone's christmas stocking in the family, and when DH and I got married she made one for me
