birth­day gifts

What to give your daughter-in-law for her birthday?

Gifts play an impor­tant role in build­ing the right rela­tion­ship. To main­tain warm and friend­ly rela­tions, you should make presents just like that, and a gift from the moth­er-in-law, cho­sen with a soul, will please the daugh­ter-in-law, pre­pare fer­tile ground for friend­ship and respect. What to please, what gift to present to the future daugh­ter-in-law, will con­sid­er in this arti­cle.

Choos­ing a birth­day sur­prise for a young wife of a son is not dif­fi­cult if you know her hob­bies and tastes. Oth­er­wise, it is bet­ter to choose uni­ver­sal gifts, with­out claim­ing orig­i­nal­i­ty, because the pref­er­ences and wish­es of the young daugh­ter-in-law are still unknown.

What not to give

Sur­pris­es that can stun or fright­en a girl will not work. Gold jel­ry with a dia­mond, a mink coat, a car — inap­pro­pri­ate offer­ings. And also not a very good sur­prise will be the pro­posed assis­tance in repair­ing the apart­ment of the future daugh­ter-in-law. As a rule, when the moth­er-in-law takes over the repair, she does every­thing to her lik­ing. This is already con­sid­ered a vio­la­tion of all per­son­al bound­aries of the future daugh­ter-in-law. In no case should you offer such help — this will absolute­ly scare away the failed daugh­ter-in-law.

Pub­lic con­grat­u­la­tions from a hired orches­tra or cre­ative team is also not the best gift from the moth­er-in-law. You can imme­di­ate­ly delete large house­hold and kitchen appli­ances from gift offer­ings.

It is inap­pro­pri­ate to present a watch as a gift if the daugh­ter-in-law is inclined to believe in folk signs. It is believed that they ener­get­i­cal­ly affect the host. Or you need to “buy off” such gifts with coins, that is, accept the offer­ing, and give the donor a cer­tain small amount of small mon­ey.

It is unde­sir­able to give and pets. There are sev­er­al good rea­sons for this:

  • instead of joy, pets can bring unnec­es­sary trou­ble and cash costs;
  • with such a gift, only close, native fam­i­ly mem­bers can guess;
  • Respon­si­bil­i­ty for the life of a pet is not to every­one’s lik­ing.

The best gift options

You need to give inex­pen­sive gifts to your future daugh­ter-in-law. In any case, the young girl of her son will like such things:

  • dim umbrel­la - a nec­es­sary thing, always use­ful in the house­hold;
  • road beau­ti­cian — an indis­pens­able thing when trav­el­ing;
  • jel­ry box or minia­ture fig­urines for jel­ry — rings, bracelets, chains are hung on them;
  • mas­cot - a tal­is­man for the home, fam­i­ly;
  • robe for a bath;
  • set of tols for the bath­room;
  • hydro mas­sager;
  • cer­tifi­cate to the spa;
  • cof­fee, tea, sets;
  • aro­ma can­dles - will help not only cre­ate an atmos­phere of com­fort in the house, but also have a heal­ing effect on the psy­che.

It is reck­less to give gift sets relat­ed to face and body skin care. This is indi­vid­ual. The fra­grance of a per­fume is dif­fi­cult to guess. Only if the girl her­self does not express pref­er­ences.

Uni­ver­sal and inex­pen­sive gift offer­ings can show a good, kind atti­tude towards the future young daugh­ter-in-law.

If the girl has already entered the fam­i­ly, then it is eas­i­er to rec­og­nize her needs. The gift in this case is cho­sen in accor­dance with the tastes of the birth­day girl. It is not for­bid­den to give a daugh­ter-in-law for her birth­day:

  • gold jel­ry - chain, ear­rings, ring, bracelet, pen­dant with a horo­scope sym­bol or icon;
  • small house­hold appli­ances - iron, vac­u­um clean­er, food proces­sor, mul­ti­cook­er, elec­tric meat grinder, air humid­i­fi­er;
  • bed sheets;
  • if a woman is dri­ving, then you can present car acces­sories: snow brush, glass cloth, car fra­grance;
  • beau­ti­ful, styl­ish leather diary, brief­case, busi­ness card;
  • cer­tifi­cate for cos­met­ic pro­ce­dures;
  • gift bas­ket with a set of tea, cof­fee, sets, sets, fruits This will sure­ly please the bride.

Sur­pris­es can be both mate­r­i­al and spir­i­tu­al. It can be tick­ets for a per­for­mance, con­cert, evening of rest.

If you plan to give your young daugh­ter-in-law tick­ets to a camp site or a trip to the sea, then you def­i­nite­ly need to warn in advance, as peo­ple may have their own plans. Oth­er­wise, such a sur­prise can put the daugh­ter-in-law in an uncom­fort­able posi­tion.

The daugh­ter-in-law will be pleased with a set of expen­sive high-qual­i­ty dish­es. Cut­lery, espe­cial­ly sil­ver, is also a nec­es­sary thing in the house­hold. Accord­ing to folk signs, one should not give a set of knives as a gift — this can lead to quar­rels and trou­bles in the fam­i­ly.

A good gift from the moth­er-in-law will be a bou­quet of flors. But an unusu­al bou­quet, but orig­i­nal. Now there are many flor shops where they will make a won­der­ful com­po­si­tion of extrav­a­gant plants. If you know the pref­er­ences of the daugh­ter-in-law, then you can choose flors tak­ing into account the taste of a rel­a­tive. A shape­less bou­quet of coun­try flors is not an option for a birth­day present.

In addi­tion to the bou­quet, you can take a cute post­card and wish you health, hap­pi­ness, love. Write every­thing by hand, and do not choose a post­card where there are already ready-made wish­es.

If you know the daugh­ter-in-law’s hob­by, you can give a gift for this activ­i­ty. It can be:

  • embroi­dery kits:
  • knit­ting acces­sories;
  • decor sets;
  • paints, brush­es, can­vas­es;
  • sewing machine;
  • knit­ting machine;
  • cas­ket for needle­work;
  • a book that match­es the daugh­ter-in-law’s hob­by.

DIY gift

Hand­made things are always orig­i­nal. They keep the warmth and good ener­gy of the hands. Such a sign of atten­tion sug­gests that the birth­day girl is dear and loved, and the time and effort spent on the craft only con­firms this. If the moth­er-in-law is an excel­lent cook, why not present a dish made by your­self. Although many girls talk about diets, they love sets and will be delight­ed with such a gift as a cake, unusu­al cook­ies, fruit bas­kets, muffins.

You can knit a cardi­gan, a cape, a pullover with the con­di­tion that the size of the daugh­ter-in-law is known. Plaids, orig­i­nal rugs, bed­spreads will be a good offer­ing. A moth­er-in-law who has a lot of knit­ting expe­ri­ence can knit a beau­ti­ful dress for her daugh­ter-in-law.

This option should be dis­cussed in advance so that the gift does not gath­er dust in the clos­et, but becomes a real­ly nec­es­sary thing in the wardrobe of the birth­day girl.

You can also sur­prise your daugh­ter-in-law with embroi­dery. Now it is fash­ion­able to embroi­der with beads. The pic­ture, embroi­dered with beads, will dec­o­rate any apart­ment.

A won­der­ful sur­prise for the daugh­ter-in-law will be cus­tom-made por­trait paint­ed on can­vas by a real artist. Such a work of art will bring not only aes­thet­ic plea­sure, but also fill the whole house with pos­i­tive ener­gy.

The mod­ern type of gift is a cash enve­lope. This offer­ing is uni­ver­sal and will please any daugh­ter-in-law, as some­times it is dif­fi­cult to please the taste and mood of a per­son.

An expen­sive gift from the moth­er-in-law can be the result of gen­eros­i­ty, or it can be used as a means of manip­u­la­tion. When accept­ing an unrea­son­ably expen­sive offer­ing, one should think about whether it was giv­en with sin­cere sym­pa­thy or with the aim of embar­rass­ing and oblig­ing the donor. In any case, you need to know that gifts love “rec­i­p­ro­cal ges­tures.”

If there is no way to repay “in the same coin”, you prob­a­bly should not accept expen­sive offer­ings. You need to talk about this bold­ly and hon­est­ly with your moth­er-in-law.

Gifts from the sister-in-law

The broth­er’s sis­ter is a sis­ter-in-law, in most cas­es she main­tains friend­ly or friend­ly rela­tions with her daugh­ter-in-law, and there­fore is aware of her tastes and desires. It is eas­i­er for a sis­ter-in-law to pick up a sign of atten­tion for a future daugh­ter-in-law, since they are usu­al­ly on the same wave­length, they know all the lat­est in per­fumery, creams, and fash­ion. What should not be giv­en from the moth­er-in-law, then it is allod to give from the sis­ter-in-law.

For exam­ple, a brother’s wife from a sis­ter-in-law can be giv­en:

  • under­ar, if the rela­tion­ship is trust­ing;
  • body and face skin care creams;
  • hair care kit
  • clothes;
  • per­fume;
  • a cer­tifi­cate for vis­it­ing a plas­tic sur­geon, if the daugh­ter-in-law her­self dis­cussed this option;
  • fash­ion acces­sories: beau­ti­ful leather belt, clutch bag, bijouterie;
  • hats;
  • shoes.

The right option for a gift is to go shop­ping with a young daugh­ter-in-law, to pick up things that are real­ly nec­es­sary and suit­able for her.

What­ev­er the rela­tion­ship beten moth­er-in-law and daugh­ter-in-law, one should strive bet­ter for a bad peace than for a good war. To come to terms with the choice of a son, to accept a new per­son in the fam­i­ly.

The ini­tia­tive in this case should come from the moth­er-in-law: small presents, sin­cere signs of atten­tion will cre­ate favor­able con­di­tions for respect­ful, kind rela­tions.

Undoubt­ed­ly, a gift from the moth­er-in-law should be from a pure heart, pre­sent­ed with joy. Most impor­tant­ly, gifts should be accept­ed with sin­cere, kind grat­i­tude in return. Even if the gift was not to your lik­ing, you should not show it, because the giv­er can be more upset than the birth­day per­son. In no case should you re-gift gifts, because it may hap­pen that the gift will return after some time back to the giv­er, and this will be very ugly. Do not for­get that giv­ing sur­pris­es is just as pleas­ant as receiv­ing.
