Shopping for gifts for your own mom (or mother figure) is never really too hard. Because you know she loves you unconditionally, she's going to love and appreciate anything you get her.

But, when it comes to getting a thoughtful Mother's Day gift for your mother-in-law, you may feel like the pressure is on. I mean she did give birth to the person you consider the love of your life, amirite? While that's obviously a big deal, permission to chill has been granted thanks to this list packed with unique, fun, and thoughtful gifts that your mother-in-law will love (and actually use).

And, there are tons of options below your mother-in-law will appreciate no matter what kind of mom she is—whether she's an outdoorsy gal or can frequently be found whipping up your favorite meals in the kitchen.

Does she spend lots of time on an eight-step skincare routine, morning and night? Well, then make her day with this gift set of the Farmacy's best-sellers (worth it!).
