The Perfect Gifts for Your In-Laws…Because Christmas Isn’t the Time to Offend

The Perfect Gifts for Your In-Laws…Because Christmas Isn’t the Time to Offend

Let’s avoid a Christmas clash by buying super thoughtful (and neutral) gifts for your in-laws instead.

By Courtney Thompson

Has there ever been a relationship more complex than that of yours with your in-laws? Maybe you hit the marriage lottery and landed yourself non-judgmental, supportive, loving in-laws…or maybe you didn’t. Regardless of which category you land in, choosing just the right gift for your extended mom and dad is imperative because, well, any little detail can be misconstrued if you’re not careful. What’s that, you were thinking of gifting a juicer? They might take offense, assuming you’re hinting they need to lose weight. How about a cookbook? They could interpret that as you not liking their cooking.

Pretty much every gift under the sun can be misinterpreted, but we’ve actually found 10 that are so thoughtful and neutral, they’re guaranteed to be a hit. And you’re guaranteed to be look like the perfect son- or daughter-in-law that you are. So let’s avoid a family fight (or, if you’re a member of my clan, some passive aggressive eye-rolling), and buy the in-laws considerate gifts that are super useful and eye-catching to boot.
