There are few things more stressful than figuring out the perfect mother in law Christmas present.  I mean, unless you are planning on giving her a wrapped up sonogram picture with the inscription “Merry Christmas Grandma”, the pressure is on.  You need a gift that is personal, but not too personal. Something that says “I love you for raising the man of my dreams” but doesn’t involve asking her clothing sizes.

The St. Anne Tote from Barrington gifts is the perfect option.  It doesn’t matter if she is still boss-ladying in corporate America or strictly ladies-who-lunching, this is the perfect Christmas present for your mother in law.  You get to completely customize it to fit your mother in law’s style perfectly. You can pick from over 20 different fabric patterns, black or brown leather trim, and monogram it to add the personal touch.

But let’s be honest, your MIL isn’t the only woman this gift would be perfect for.  I really just needed a catchy blog post title, that’s all.  This would be such a sweet gift for your engaged sister (what bride doesn’t want to show off those new initials!?), jet-setting best friend who is in desperate need of the perfect carryon, or your student’s teacher whose “school bag” is never big enough to hold all of those graded papers and emergency marker supply.  (And coming from a former teacher, she’ll totally like your kid more.  It’s almost a guarantee.)

Shop the Look:

Barrington Gifts has even promised that if you place your order BY Wednesday, December 14th, you will receive it in time for Christmas!  I can’t even begin to tell you how many compliments I have received on my St. Anne Tote in the last few weeks. In fact, you may want to consider buying a “Merry Christmas to ME” one as well 😉

Merry Christmas!

    OMG girl I LOVE this post! #1. Your writing is on point! #2. (and most importantly) I LOVE THAT BAG! I actually have a best friend who is getting married in March and this would be the perfect gift to give to her with her new initials… maybe stuffed with honeymoon essentials?! Thanks for the idea!!
