According to some Singaporean relationship experts, having a positive relationship with your mother-in-law or MIL is the secret to a happier married life. You may not see eye-to-eye with your mother-in-law sometimes, but don’t let that stop you from building a meaningful, long-lasting relationship with her. Delight your MIL or get on her good side with these five pampering gift ideas worthy of investment:


  1. Dermatologist-Approved Skincare Set

Older women have different needs when it comes to skincare. Help your MIL get the perfect, younger-looking skin she has always dreamed of by gifting her a dermatologist-approved skincare set. Find out what her skin type is. For the best results, buy the natural ones that are free of chemicals. Your mother-in-law would thank you for her new baby fresh and softer skin.

  1. Anti-Aging Serum

Being an older woman means having a few visible aging signs here and there. Help your MIL reduce her wrinkles, fine lines, or dark spots by getting her an anti-aging serum. In some cases, anti-aging serum works better than a moisturizing cream as it penetrates much deeper into the skin, allowing for better and thorough hydration. They’re also lightweight and easier to be carried around. There are the fragrance-free ones on the market if your mother-in-law is sensitive to strong smell.


  1. Fancy Masks

Sometimes a busy woman would rather unwind at the comfort of her home rather than going out. Give your mother-in-law a fancy spa treatment at home by gifting her a set of fancy pampering masks. Such masks help to treat your MIL’s skin concern, pull out impurities, improve her pores, remove excess oils, and overall hydrate her skin. If you’ve got extra money to spare, you can get your mother-in-law a box of collagen face masks that specifically treats aging skin.


  1. Beauty Subscription Box

If you have a MIL who loves receiving gifts full of surprises, subscribe her to a monthly or quarterly beauty box. Make sure the box includes beauty products that are suitable for her skin type and that specifically address her beauty concerns. A typical beauty box contains about five full or sample size products that range from skincare, hair, and cosmetics; all tailored to the receiver.


  1. V-Shape Face Treatment

Perhaps one of the best beauty investments of all time, your mother-in-law would surely appreciate a beauty treatment that could help address the shape of her face. If she’s mainly concern about her overly round or square face, book her a V-shape face treatment in Singapore. Remember to consult with a doctor first and find out whether the procedure would be safe and is suitable for your MIL before you send her to the treatment.


To choose the right gift for your mother-in-law, there are a few things to keep in mind and factors to consider. These factors include her skin type, her health condition, her allergic reaction, her personal preference (i.e. does she like a creamy-textured product or a powdered one?), her beauty concerns, or whether she’d love a personal touch (i.e. does the gift comes in special, beautiful packaging?). All of these points serve as a foundation to help you pick the perfect gift that’s been tailored especially for your mother-in-law. Get her the right gift, and she’ll love you even more, or at least tolerate you better than ever!
