We are low on ideas for the inlaws (mil and bil and their respective partners). Mil is recently married and bil is recently engaged (both in the last few weeks) and we have used up all our interesting present ideas.

Both couples are saving at the moment (international holiday and a wedding). My current thought is a "great night in" pack. I'm thinking QuickFlix subscription, popcorn maker, chocolates, wine... Can you think of anything else that might work?  Also, if you have foxtel, would QuickFlix be worthless?

It depends on their level of subscription for foxtel, if they have movies or not.

For bil maybe some candles and scented massage oils.
Maybe a gift voucher to cheesecake shop to get something nice.
If they like a particular show maybe 1 season on DVD.
I love that idea.

That sounds like an amazing gift!! Wish I were in your family, how thoughtful!

We have foxtel but still use quickflix a lot. It's great for more obscure movies and no late fees!!

I think everything you're including sounds perfect, but if you wanted to add more you could include a blanket (for the winter months!) or even for a laugh, a snuggie!!!
