I’m going to my new boyfriend’s family for Christmas and I need to get all three of his sisters presents. I don’t have a big budget, so how can I go about impressing them without bankrupting myself! They’re 22, 27, and 35 – help!Lucy
These are the best Christmas gifts for sister-in-laws you can snap up in one quick shopping spree on the high street, even if the impending present buying task feels impossible right now.
If you make some clever purchases like these ones, it’ll look like you’ve made a supreme effort that’ll impress any sister in law, all for under £40.
From jewellery gifts and stylish pyjamas to wellness treats and home accessories, there’s something for everyone. You can mix and match, or buy all three sisters the same gift (to save any pressie envy!). When we’re all watching our budgets, it’s all about picking timeless presents your boyfriend’s family will actually want to use, and keep.
It’s a small gesture, but beautiful cards are a good place to start and will make a good first impression, especially if they’re from a small business. Pair with a token pressie under £10 for popping under the tree.
For the hostess that has everything
If your sister-in-laws love hosting dinner parties, why not treat them to a little something that’ll brighten up their dining table.
PJs & loungewear
Buying clothes and winter accessories for Christmas pressies can feel risky if you don’t know somebody that well as they’re so personal and you don’t want to buy something someone will push to the bottom of a drawer and never wear. But, if you are feeling bold, go for some PJs or loungewear. You can never have too many cosy pieces for wearing at home, especially when they’re this soft.
Feed a sister-in-law’s love for homeware with boujie foodie gifts or chic home accessories you’d never buy for yourself, but would secretly love to have on display.
When it comes to jewellery, stick to cute layering pieces rather than very personal statement earrings (unless you’ve done some prior Christmas wish-list snooping!) You can’t go wrong with chic hoop earrings that are universally popular, or if you’re in doubt you could gift each sister a sweet jewellery box.
For a gift that’s affordable and festive, I love hair accessories. If your sister-in-law pops them in their hair on Christmas day you’ll know you’ve succeeded.
A quick fix for looking like you’ve made extra effort is a gift that’s personalised. From jewellery to pillowcases, you can buy all three sisters the same gift, but give each one a personalised twist.
When I’m really stuck for a gift, I’ll turn to a special decoration which someone can add to their Christmas collection. If you’re heading to the high street, Anthropologie, H&M and Zara have some of the most beautiful decs around.
