Who do you have the hardest time buying gifts for? It was a question I asked on my Instagram stories. At the very top of the list was mother-in-law. And that’s when this fabulous list was born because I then turned around and asked the mother-in-laws that watch my stories to share their favorite gifts. (I just love our Instagram community!)

*Throughout the list you’ll see items that have an asterisk. These are products that I own and love (or else they wouldn’t be on the list.)
