I got my MIL a new doona cover and set of sheets, I've only ever known her to have the same one in 5 years.  I've told SIL to make sure MIL doesn't change her curtains or carpet before Christmas or they may not match!

We are going to get MIL a new handbag.

SIL (and Brother) are getting a night at the movies at home pack - DVD, popcorn, malteasers, 2 popcorn cup thingies from woolworths and hot chocolate.  They have a baby and don't get to go to the movies very often at the cinema.
