Let’s chat about difficult people to shop for during the holidays, shall we? You’ve got that friend in your life that has everything, the spouse that has you stumped, and without fail, year after year, you always wonder: what are some good gifts for inlaws?

I might not be married, but I do have a fantastic domestic partner whose family I adore. In-laws might be tricky to shop for, but I’ve rounded up some gift ideas that will work for any side of the family!

Gifts for Inlaws

 
It’s been a rough year. If you can treat your in-laws to a luxe gift, I assure you, they probably deserve it! 

One of my favorite places to shop for luxury holiday gifts each year is Farfetch. I’d recommend keeping an eye out for some of their Black Friday deals! I love these delicate Bottega Veneta gold hoops, and this silk pajama set looks incredibly luxurious.

Flannel Shirt | The Black Home Love Candle
Tassel Earrings | Washable Silk Pajamas

Giving your loved ones a gift from a Black-owned business is a great way to support creators of color. This men’s shirt looks incredibly cozy and well made, and it is a Japanese brushed flannel that will last him for years. For the homebody in your life, this candle gives off a nice balanced, masculine/feminine scent. These washable silk PJs are perfect for sleep and lounge, and they will feel luxurious; and these tassel earrings are under $25 and would make for a great budget-friendly gift.

Custom Home Illustration | Barefoot Dreams Blanket | Espresso Machine
Monogram Decanter Set | Silk Pillowcase Set
Outdoor Firepit | Gold Hoop Earrings | Travel Jewelry Case (Monogram Available)
Merino Half-Zip Sweater | Digital Photo Frame | Humidifier

One gift that Tom’s parents really enjoyed last year was this digital photo frame. You can download an app to your phone and share photos with your loved ones digitally, no matter where you are in the world. It’s a great way to stay connected when you’re not able to see your family!

I also love this travel jewelry case. You can get this monogrammed, and it comes in several different colors. The quality is next level, and it would be a thoughtful gift for your in-law who has an impressive collection of baubles.

Another small business you could support is Messy Heart Studio. I think their custom home portraits are adorable, and if you get it framed, it would make for a one of a kind gift.
