There’s nothing quite like having to grit your teeth and play nice every time your ‘monster in law’ drops by unexpectantly, to her darling child. Who is now thirty-five, moved out and has a family of their own. Yet, buying something for her on Mother’s Day will stop you from hearing about it until Christmas, and having yet another headache on top of the already three she gives you a week with her passive aggressive comments – ranging from how you raise your kids vegan, to what you’re wearing on the school run. Here are some fun passive aggressive gift ideas, for the darling monster in law on Mother’s Day.
Nothing quite screams, ‘I think you’re old’, more than buying someone wrinkle cream. Offer it up with some anti-aging tea tree oil, and she might be too busy at the beauty parlor to make tutting sounds at the next BBQ. Don’t forget to mention, that the Aya Natural Facial Vegan Night Cream Advanced Safe Moisturizer is also Vegan when you hand it over.
Nothing quite says ‘butt out of our lives’ – like a book, that literally says that. Give her the gift of some light reading material for those days where you want to spend together as a family, an immediate family. When Our Grown Kids Disappoint Us, might resonate with her a little bit.

Mentioning that you felt she could use the help around the house. You’ve gone ahead and purchased a day of cleaning…. how incredibly thoughtful of you.

Nothing quite says, ‘Thanks for coming, are you here to help or hinder?’, than some Etsy inspired mom gifts. Maybe give the dishes a miss for a day or two before she comes over so that she’ll be too busy to notice how scruffed up the kids are, and there’s still no animals products in the fridge for her to be annoyed about.
