Gifts for the New Year

What to give your father-in-law for the New Year?

Buy­ing gifts for loved ones for the New Year is a very inter­est­ing and joy­ful activ­i­ty, because giv­ing gifts is much more pleas­ant than receiv­ing them. Hov­er, this is a very dif­fi­cult mat­ter, espe­cial­ly when it comes to peo­ple whose taste pref­er­ences have not yet been stud­ied by you. For exam­ple, if a woman who recent­ly got mar­ried or recent­ly met the groom’s par­ents has to inde­pen­dent­ly pur­chase a gift for her father-in-law for the New Year, then she may encounter cer­tain dif­fi­cul­ties in this mat­ter.

In order for the gift to be suc­cess­ful, and your rela­tion­ship with a rel­a­tive not to dete­ri­o­rate after an unsuc­cess­ful pre­sen­ta­tion, when choos­ing it, you must take into account sev­er­al valu­able rec­om­men­da­tions, which will be dis­cussed lat­er.

Thematic presentations

First of all, when choos­ing a gift for your father-in-law, you need to remem­ber the rea­son for con­grat­u­la­tions. Of course, a New Year’s gift should set you in a fes­tive mood, please or maybe amaze. There­fore, you can first of all turn your atten­tion to themed sou­venirs, such as:

  • Christ­mas ball — this is always an appro­pri­ate gift for the New Year, even for a per­son who is not very ll known, who is very often the father-in-law.
  • Sater with hol­i­day or win­ter print - a very good gift for both an elder­ly man and a young man. Every­one ars a sim­i­lar thing (except for res­i­dents of trop­i­cal lat­i­tudes).
  • Set for mak­ing mulled wine - a very orig­i­nal and nec­es­sary gift for a per­son who under­stands a lot about this drink. If your hus­band’s par­ents con­sid­er them­selves fans of wine, you can safe­ly present this cute lit­tle thing to them on New Year’s Eve.
  • Bas­ket of Christ­mas sets. Sets are loved not only by chil­dren, but also by adult men. In the end, this is a stan­dard and almost win-win sign of atten­tion, which is appro­pri­ate to show in any sit­u­a­tion. If your father-in-law is an ardent oppo­nent of glu­cose, then instead of sets, you can put meat and sausages in the bas­ket.
  • Hock­ey tick­ets (foot­ball, ten­nis, vol­ley­ball, etc.) – great solu­tion. Ask your spouse what kind of sport his father is fond of. If he does not like sports at all, then give him a sim­i­lar gift in accor­dance with his pref­er­ences (tick­et to the the­ater, opera, exhi­bi­tion, New Year’s event, etc.).
  • Mug with the sym­bol of the New Year - Pret­ty cheap Christ­mas gift. This thing will nev­er be super­flu­ous in every­day life. But the main thing is to buy a mug in accor­dance with the tastes of your father-in-law, because by mak­ing such a seem­ing­ly unpre­ten­tious gift, you can go wrong with the choice and dis­ap­point your spouse’s father, pret­ty spoil­ing your mood.

Budget options

Before the New Year, very few of us do not expe­ri­ence a bud­get deficit, because need to prop­er­ly “stock up” for the hol­i­day, while buy­ing a whole bunch of gifts for rel­a­tives and friends. There­fore, when pur­chas­ing a gift for my hus­band’s father, I would like to choose some­thing use­ful, orig­i­nal, and, if pos­si­ble, inex­pen­sive. There are many such ideas.

  • Book. What­ev­er you say, but this is real­ly the best gift. If your father-in-law is an intel­lec­tu­al, then he will def­i­nite­ly be delight­ed with this gift.
  • Con­ve­nient lunch box. This thing will def­i­nite­ly come in handy for your hus­band’s father, espe­cial­ly if he has not yet retired.
  • Leather wal­let. Prac­ti­cal, nec­es­sary and at the same time a sta­tus gift.
  • Con­ve­nient diary or busi­ness card hold­er. For a busi­ness adult — that’s it.
  • Car air fresh­en­er. If your father-in-law is a motorist, then he will def­i­nite­ly like this gift.
  • trunk orga­niz­er. Again, a nec­es­sary thing that men for some rea­son do not buy for them­selves.
  • Scraper-glove for clear­ing snow. In our coun­try, this thing is almost irre­place­able.
  • Fish­ing equip­ment. If your father-in-law is a fish­er­man, then long after the New Year he will remem­ber you with grat­i­tude, because for many men fish­ing is a real pas­sion.
  • Smoke­house for fish. If your rel­a­tive is a fish­er­man and lives out­side the city, then such a gift will come in handy for him and his wife.
  • Hunt­ing knife. Again, if the father-in-law is an avid hunter, you can present him with some­thing from hunt­ing equip­ment.
  • Belt, vest or slip­pers made of sheep­’s wool. If your father-in-law does not like to be young and peri­od­i­cal­ly suf­fers from back pain, then this present will sure­ly please him very much. This will show him that you care about his health.
  • A warm sater. A won­der­ful gift, you just need to ask your spouse what size clothes his father ars.
  • Pok­er set. An avid gam­bler will be very flat­tered by such atten­tion to his hob­by.
  • Exclu­sive check­ers, chess or backgam­mon. For con­nois­seurs of the game, this will be a very valu­able gift.
  • A bot­tle of a good alco­holic drink in a fes­tive pack­age. This is prob­a­bly the most pop­u­lar gift that women give to male rel­a­tives. Mak­ing a choice in favor of this idea, you will nev­er lose.
  • A box of cig­ars or a pipe. It’s bet­ter not to save here.. A con­nois­seur will def­i­nite­ly dis­tin­guish a qual­i­ty prod­uct from a cheap sur­ro­gate, and if the father-in-law is not sat­is­fied with any char­ac­ter­is­tic of a cig­ar or pipe, then he can sim­ply refuse to use them or sim­ply re-gift your present to some­one.
  • Bath acces­sories. Nowa­days, there is a wide range of prod­ucts of this ori­en­ta­tion.
  • Sports train­er. If the father-in-law com­plains about his overight, then by pre­sent­ing such a gift, you can help him get in shape and improve his health.

Impor­tant! The gift should still cor­re­spond to the pref­er­ences of the father-in-law as much as pos­si­ble, oth­er­wise the sign of your atten­tion will be regard­ed by him as a forced for­mal­i­ty.

Original gifts

As you know, every­one has their own taste, hov­er, a New Year’s present should be at least a lit­tle orig­i­nal and exclu­sive. You can involve chil­dren in cre­at­ing an inter­est­ing gift, because a joint cre­ative work improves the cli­mate in the fam­i­ly and con­tributes to the gen­er­a­tion of fresh ideas.

In addi­tion, the father-in-law will be very pleased to know that almost his entire fam­i­ly was involved in prepar­ing a gift for him. There are a lot of ideas for orig­i­nal gifts, from mak­ing your own stock­book with fam­i­ly pho­tos or an unusu­al fig­urine (a sym­bol of the com­ing year) to a por­trait of your father-in-law.

Anoth­er unusu­al idea for a New Year’s gift for a father: a pack of expen­sive tea and a mug that depicts grand­chil­dren or moth­er-in-law. If you have min­i­mal artis­tic skills, you can try to make an album your­self, which will mark the most sig­nif­i­cant events of the year. As a decor, you can use beau­ti­ful stick­ers, pho­tographs or draw­ings.

Anoth­er orig­i­nal ver­sion of a gift for the New Year is a pack­age from San­ta Claus. Who said that he only brings gifts to chil­dren who have been ll behaved through­out the year? In the box you can put things that are not very expen­sive, but prac­ti­cal. First of all, they must stick to a spe­cif­ic top­ic, such as main­tain­ing the immune sys­tem. Sam­ple list of items: vit­a­min com­plex, fruit, scarf, warm socks, dumb­bells, pool mem­ber­ship.

If you are short on mon­ey or you want to be orig­i­nal, besides you have a lot of free time, then you can try to make your father-in-law a gift for the New Year with your own hands. By the way, now hand­made gifts are very pop­u­lar. In addi­tion, if your hus­band’s father is a althy man, then it will be quite dif­fi­cult to impress him with some­thing pur­chased in a store.

Home­made gifts for par­ents are a good option for young spous­es who can­not spend a lot of mon­ey on buy­ing an expen­sive gift. If you know how to knit ll, then you will be able to present a hand­made sater or scarf to your father-in-law for the hol­i­day.

Also an inter­est­ing idea for a home­made gift would be a home­made cal­en­dar for next year. Each page of this prod­uct can be dec­o­rat­ed with pho­tographs of chil­dren and grand­chil­dren.

If your father-in-law lives alone, then a fes­tive din­ner pre­pared by the daugh­ter-in-law will be a good gift for the New Year hol­i­day. It does­n’t mat­ter if he can cook his own food. The main thing is that in this way you can take care of your rel­a­tive.

Joint gifts for father-in-law and mother-in-law

It is pos­si­ble that you want to wish your hus­band’s par­ents a Hap­py New Year with a com­mon gift. This will help you save mon­ey, after all, one gift is less than two. In addi­tion, such a gift will help empha­size your atti­tude towards them as a sin­gle organ­ism, and this can flat­ter them, espe­cial­ly those moth­er-in-law who are greedy for such ges­tures. A good choice might be some use­ful house­hold item for exam­ple, an orig­i­nal night lamp, a cof­fee table with a beau­ti­ful carved pat­tern, a chest of drars in a retro style, a high-qual­i­ty heater.

Also a good gift would be an expen­sive set of dou­ble bed­ding, a wide sheep­skin blan­ket, down pil­lows, etc. If your spouse’s father and moth­er are lovers of out­door recre­ation, then you will not go wrong with coun­try uten­sils in the form of a gift. It can be a deck chair, bar­be­cue, swing, ham­mock, flor bed dec­o­ra­tion, etc.

For prac­ti­cal own­ers, a good gift would be a cam­era, a house­hold appli­ance for the kitchen, for exam­ple, an air grill, a smoke­house, a yogurt mak­er, a bread mak­er, a retro-style floor lamp, a pic­ture, a set of beau­ti­ful dish­es.
