personalized book gifts for mother-in-laws

Whether you love your mother-in-law or you wonder where the heck your husband came from, I’ve always found MILs to be the toughest to shop for when it comes to the perfect holiday gift. So instead of leaving it up to my husband (which would probably mean a really scary reindeer sweater), I’ve rounded up a bunch of cool mother-in-law gifts that are sure to make even the most challenging other-mother happy.
