Gifts for mother-in-laws

My mother and her mother-in-law exchanged some pretty weird gifts over the years.

Once, my grandma gave my mother used (and stained) ex-hospital bedsheets, which she bought from a hospital. 

Another time, she gave her a flesh-coloured 40 EE size bra. If you saw my mother, more specifically the size of her bust, you’d understand how insane a gift it was.

In return, my grandmother was presented with Slimming World dieting books and a plug-in air freshener.

I happen to like my mother-in-law and she also gives good gifts. I can’t imagine how bad it would be if she gave me some perfume from Jo Malone and then I said, with a glint in my eye, ‘I have something for you too, Sally!’ and then handed her soiled bed linen.

It’s her birthday next month. We’ll probably give her a voucher but here are my failsafe gift ideas for my mother-in-law, who loves animals, interior design, warm weather and lives in the countryside.
