Daughter-in-Law Gifts to Avoid
When giving your daughter-in-law a gift, it’s important to have some knowledge about her likes and dislikes. Even if your relationship is golden, it’s important to avoid anything that can be seen as a passive-aggressive hint or suggestion.
When selecting a gift, avoid things like exercise equipment, articles of clothing, cleaning, or cooking supplies – unless she specifically asks for something. When in doubt, gift cards are always a great option!
