presents for in-laws
« on: November 12, 2013, 07:23:16 AM »
I have trouble buying for my in-laws they have everything so I am always at a lost

how does this look:

I was thinking of putting a basket together with possibly 2 of these in it and then some holiday food - my father-in-law likes lobster tail and aldi always has a good deal in December and do some baking - cookies, fudge

any other ideas?

That candle holder is really pretty!

This year for my MIL, I'm having some tea towels printed with some recipes on them in her mother's handwriting.  Her mom passed away 2 years ago.  I still have no idea what to do for FIL.

so I bought the glass, candles and glitter today so hopefully I can work on this either at the end of this week or next week.

I'll take a picture when I'm done
