With special attention, you need to approach the choice of a gift for the mother of your close friend.

- Underar. These are intimate things, the choice of which is a personal matter of the lady herself.

Tea and coffee sets
Before the holidays, many bright and beautiful jars of tea and coffee appear on supermarket shelves, as ll as whole sets of these products in New Year’s packaging. If your future mother-in-law prefers some unusual tea, with herbs and fruits, or loves a special kind of coffee, visit a specialty store where you will buy what she will definitely like.
Here you can not only buy the necessary goods, but also effectively pack them — present them in a beautiful basket or in the form of a tea or coffee bouquet.
If your friend’s mom loves sets, this is a great opportunity to please her, as women rarely indulge themselves in sets. Interrogate a friend with a predilection for what kind of sets it is better to buy:

- candied fruit;
Chocolate lovers can order cute chocolate figurines or an original set picture. A great gift would be a chic gingerbread house. Sets can be beautifully wrapped in cellophane packaging, put in a painted tin or chest with New Year’s drawings and solemnly presented to the addressee.
Symbol of the year
A traditional New Year’s gift is a symbol of the year according to the Eastern calendar. Giving cheap trinkets in the form of figurines is not worth it. But an unusual panel made of natural materials or a handmade painting will be appreciated by mom if she is a fan of decorative art.
A good gift for any occasion is a photo album. And if you present it not empty, but with photographs of your boyfriend or his entire family, it will be great. Pictures of family holidays and feasts, when all relatives gather, will evoke pleasant memories and positive emotions. The hostess will be very grateful to you. You can also add a couple of beautiful frames to the photo album.
A bouquet or an exquisite floral composition is a very unexpected, but pleasant gift for a New Year’s celebration. Order a winter bouquet of red roses, fluffy white cotton flors and green nobilis sprigs and cinnamon sticks. Mom will appreciate such an unexpected, but very pleasant surprise and your delicate taste.
You can buy a suitable vase and order a New Year’s composition in it, which will perfectly decorate the interior.

It is pleasant for every woman to receive the necessary little things as a gift. If you have already to establish relations with the future mother-in-law, you can safely give her the following.
- cosmetic bag. Any woman will gladly accept such a gift and will use it with pleasure. You can put there a new set of makeup brushes, cosmetics that your friend’s mom uses. Don’t forget to include a small New Year’s card with wishes. It will be very nice.
- Tools for manicure and pedicure. True ladies know that a woman’s hands and feet must be flawless. Without good tools, it is impossible to make a quality manicure and pedicure. Be sure to choose a good expensive set, not a cheap fake.
- Foot bath with hydromassage. Your boyfriend’s mom will be delighted. This is a great opportunity to relax, give yourself pleasure, especially if a woman is not a fan of visiting beauty salons. In the gift set, you can purchase foot skin care products.
- Certificate for visiting the SPA-salon. If the guy’s mother loads herself with household chores and rarely allows herself such pleasure, this will be a chic gift for her, a great opportunity to relax and unwind.
Listen to our advice so as not to get into a mess when choosing a gift.
- Never buy a gift just for your taste — your preferences with the mother-in-law can be completely different.
- Do not give unnecessary things, which unnecessarily lay around at your place for the sake of saving money. “Gifting” does not characterize you ll.
- If you can’t buy an expensive item yet, present something that you do ll with your own hands (bake a New Year’s cake or cookies, draw a New Year’s picture, knit a warm blanket or stole).
Show sincere attention to your boyfriend’s mom, and she will definitely fall in love with you.
