Gifts for the New Year

What to give a boyfriend's mom for the New Year?

In antic­i­pa­tion of the New Year, are hap­py to plunge into the pre-hol­i­day fuss. There is a lot to do: come up with a fes­tive menu, dec­o­rate the house, choose a New Year’s out­fit and be sure to buy gifts for col­leagues, friends and, of course, par­ents. Giv­ing Christ­mas gifts is a trou­ble­some and pleas­ant busi­ness, but some­times dif­fi­cult. Espe­cial­ly if you choose a wor­thy gift for your boyfriend’s mom.

How to choose?

With spe­cial atten­tion, you need to approach the choice of a gift for the moth­er of your close friend. Nev­er for­get that his moth­er is the dear­est per­son for him, the more sin­cere and warmer your rela­tion­ship is, the more expen­sive you will be for your loved one. If you are ll acquaint­ed with your moth­er, when choos­ing a gift, remem­ber her pref­er­ences and tastes, then the thing you bought will bring her sin­cere joy.

If your first meet­ing has not yet tak­en place, be sure to ask the groom what mom loves, what she likes, how she spends her free time, what she dreams about.

If your boyfriend is at a loss with an ansr, and you are afraid of offend­ing your future moth­er-in-law, remem­ber that it is bet­ter not to give her a gift so as not to get into an awk­ward sit­u­a­tion.

  • Anti-aging cos­met­ics, deodor­ants, sham­poos and gray hair dye. It looks like a hint of age or an untidy appear­ance.
  • per­fumeryif you don’t know 100% what scents she prefers. The choice of eau de toi­lette and per­fume is an indi­vid­ual mat­ter.
  • Under­ar. These are inti­mate things, the choice of which is a per­son­al mat­ter of the lady her­self.
  • Del­i­ca­cies and alco­hol. This is not a gift, but rather a treat that you brought to the table.
  • Dec­o­ra­tions. You should not rush to give expen­sive jel­ry, and jel­ry may not suit the host­ess or seem bad taste to her.

simple gifts

There are sim­ple things that any woman is pleased to receive on New Year’s hol­i­day.

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.

Sets sets

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:

  • marsh­mal­low;
  • marsh­mal­low;
  • mar­malade;
  • ori­en­tal sets;
  • a box of favorite sets;
  • can­died fruit;
  • cook­ie.

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.

Photo album

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.

Indoor plant

Get a beau­ti­ful Christ­mas plant:

  • Christ­mas tree
  • thu­ja;
  • cypress;
  • poin­set­tia.

Be sure to pick up a pot for the plant and soil to save the own­er from unnec­es­sary wor­ries.

We give emotions

Pleas­ant impres­sions and emo­tions are a great gift. Con­sult with your lover what his moth­er will like best, and give her such an oppor­tu­ni­ty. You can donate:

  • the­ater tick­ets to a play or a movie pre­miere with your favorite actor;
  • invi­ta­tion to a music fes­ti­val or con­cert;
  • new year trip with a vis­it to the most beau­ti­ful and inter­est­ing hol­i­day exhi­bi­tions and fairs in Rus­sia or Europe;
  • detailed video tuto­r­i­al if the moth­er is fond of needle­work or wants to learn it;
  • favorite author’s book which is not avail­able in book­stores in your city (order the desired edi­tion on the Inter­net in advance, and before giv­ing it, pack the book and present it as a sur­prise).

Gifts for home

If you are already ll acquaint­ed with the groom’s par­ents and vis­it him, this will give you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to choose those gifts that will always come in handy in the house. The best gift for a host­ess who loves her home and com­fort will be:

  • tea-set with New Year’s draw­ing;
  • beau­ti­ful christ­mas table­cloth with an ele­gant print and nap­kins;
  • high-qual­i­ty tex­tile set for the kitchen: grips, tols, apron;
  • bright­ly col­ored jars for bulk prod­ucts and spices;
  • exquis­ite cut­lery;
  • big cook­book with vivid illus­tra­tions and acces­si­ble inter­est­ing recipes.

You can buy things that the host­ess has been dream­ing of for a long time, but she sim­ply “does not reach her hands” to make a pur­chase from her:

  • elec­tric ket­tle with back­light;
  • cof­fee grinder;
  • Turku and excel­lent cof­fee to it;
  • a set of cut­lery;
  • a set of beau­ti­ful pots;
  • bed­ding set;
  • pil­lows, blan­ket;
  • ortho­pe­dic pil­low or mat­tress.

Your sin­cere care and atten­tion to the fam­i­ly will be the best gift for the host­ess.

Women things

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.
