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.

She loves them and has them all over her house. one year i bought her a royal doulton one and she really loved it, she said they last for a year so just get her a replacement every year for her for xmas and she will be happy.
