These 10 Mother’s Day gifts for your mother-in-law are practical and sensible, showing her that you see all the hard work that she has done in raising your partner and that you pay attention to the things she likes.

Perfect Mother’s Day Gifts for Your Mother-in-Law
Family members all love updated pictures of the kids in their lives, but in today’s digital age, it is hard to get all of your pictures printed and framed. The photos taken on a phone don’t often print well at larger sizes, leaving mom’s and grandma’s feeling like those 3,000 pictures she has stored on there will never be seen (except when she’s aimlessly scrolling through them at 3am).
Enter Skylight Digital Photo Frame. This digital image frame allows you to send your favorite images (or all, we don’t judge) to your picture frame to be displayed via a slideshow. Simply email your photos to your personal Skylight email address and they will automatically appear on the frame. You can choose which ones you want to show or select them all.
This is a perfect gift for your partner or for loving grandmas, aunts, and relatives who want to be able to see all those silly photos of the kids in real-time.
It goes without saying that mom deserves a good meal this Mother’s Day, especially since she spends the other 364 days of the year cooking for her family.

Garnet Hill’s artisanal collection of handmade wreaths feature unique assortments of natural elements that instantly give a warm welcome to the season on a door, wall, or table.
We particularly love this fern wreath (designed for indoors and protected outdoor areas). It’s the perfect base to add a monogram or hello sign.

Did you know that even while you are not using your electronic devices like your phones, computers, tablets, and wifi that they can still emit a low-level radiation field? These electro-magnetic frequencies (EMF’s) can effect our day to day life, adding what is called electro-stress. Electro-stress has been linked to disrupted sleep patterns, insomnia, anxiety, headaches, skin rashes, and more.
The sleepMat by energydots helps to decrease the level of EMF’s all while you sleep. Their patented technology retunes man-made EMF’s to a more natural state that is conducive to our bodies through a process called entrainment- it is kind of like tuning fork on our immediate environment. The sleepMat is an energydot that is placed under your pillow to help give you a better night’s sleep. The energydot is stitched between beautifully designed geometric cotton latyers, which holds and continuously emits a natural and soothing energy. This allows your brain to slow from beta to alpha waves, giving you a deeper and more peaceful sleep.
If moms or mother-in-laws need anything, it is a better nights sleep. You might not be able to keep the kids from coming into your room several times per night, but you can help give her a more peaceful sleep when she actually does get to sleep with sleepMAT.
