Five Great Gift Sets That Your Mother-in-Law Will LOVE!

Arghhh! Is Christmas filling you with panic?! Is the pressure of gifting your mother-in-law getting too much?! Don’t worry, I’m here to help! I’ve found Five Great Gift Sets That Your Mother-in-Law Will LOVE! Let’s do this!

 Balance Me 'Indulge Me' Set

Balance Me ‘Indulge Me’ Set

OK! Let’s do this right! My first suggestion would be a beautiful little gift set from Balance Me, this one is particularly perfect if you don’t want to spend a fortune, but you still want to give her something understated and elegant for Christmas. This Balance Me ‘Indulge Me’ Set ticks all the boxes, because their skincare is natural and luxurious and no matter what skin concerns you have, it works wonders! Also, because they are all about natural and healthy skin, this gift has a real ageless feel to it, because no-one wants to open a gift set which is emblazoned with ‘Anti-aging’… #JustSaying!


BareMinerals ‘Brush Hour’ Set

So, this is a bit of a wild card and definitely one for a mother-in-law you are a little closer with, but I swear, I have a good reason for this! A good set of make up brushes is a real game changer, but it’s something that you rarely treat yourself too, and when you do, they often tend to be fairly basic ones from Boots. So why not treat your mother-in-law to the creme de la creme of chic and elegant cosmetics brushes! I’m talking about the BareMinerals ‘Brush Hour’ Set which comes in a cute black travel pouch and contains the perfect blender, blush and finishing brush. Like I said, a bit of a wild card, but a great set of cosmetics brushes are such a good gift and something she will use every day for a very long time!

Crabtree & Evelyn 'Indulgent Winter' Hand Collection

Crabtree & Evelyn ‘Indulgent Winter’ Hand Collection

Fact: Mums love hand creams. There’s this weird thing that happens when you turn 30 or have a baby (whichever comes first) your hands suddenly get an overwhelming thirst for rich nourishing hand creams. I’ve tried and tested a LOT of hand creams in my time and Crabtree have some of the best formulas out there, also they know how to package them into a rather lovely presentation box, making them mother-in-law ready! Believe me, this Crabtree & Evelyn ‘Indulgent Winter’ Hand Collection will be loved!

Elemis 'Energising Skin Secrets' Set

Elemis ‘Energising Skin Secrets’ Set

Does your mother-in-law love to spend her days at the spa or country club? Then how about treating her to some spa-quality skin care? This beautiful Elemis ‘Energising Skin Secrets’ presentation box contains their now-iconic Bio-tec Energising Cleanser and Day Cream. It’s fabulously indulgent and the results are amazing, plus if she loves to spa, she will appreciate your attention to detail as most of the best spas in the UK use Elemis products. Also, if you are staying with the in-laws over the festive period and you want to get her something which says ‘Thank you for having me’ as well as ‘Merry Christmas’ this is a really beautiful and generous gift as the two products are collectively worth £115, although as part of this gift set, you can get them both for £75!

Burt's Bees 'Burt's Natural Indulgence' Set 

Burt’s Bees ‘Burt’s Natural Indulgence’ Set

Finally, an old favourite which couldn’t be forgotten! A little Burt’s Bees never goes a miss at Christmas! Their products are delightful and natural, as well as affordable. This Burt’s Bees ‘Burt’s Natural Indulgence’ Set includes a Milk & Honey body lotion, Coconut foot cream and of course, a classic Coconut & Pear lip balm. All for £20 (or £18 right now on Debenhams!) which I think is pretty amazing. Also, if your mother-in-law is a bit of a hippy at heart, she will love Burt’s Bees, as they were founded in the 70’s by two hippies, Burt and his buddy, Roxanne, together they made candles and eventually skincare using the honey and beeswax from Burt’s bee farm. Isn’t that lovely?

…So there we have it! Five Great Gift Sets That Your Mother-in-Law Will LOVE… you can thank me later!!!

    What you say about hand creams is so true. I’ve bought hand cream for my mum for years (her hands really suffer in winter) and in recent years I’ve started using it more myself. That Crabtree & Evelyn set is gorgeous – love how it’s styled a bit like a book!? xx
