Christmas Gifts for Mother in Law

We’re here to help you find the best Christmas gifts for your mother in law, as well as everyone else you’re buying for this year. With our selection of the best experiences in Australia, plus gift vouchers options, finding the ideal gift for your mum in law this Christmas is easy.

What to give a mother in law for Christmas?

The time has come to start thinking about Christmas gift ideas, including the potentially tricky process of finding gifts for your mother in law. 

There’s no doubt that thinking about Christmas gifts for your mother in law can be challenging. Even if you know her likes and dislikes well, it’s hard to know what she really wants or needs to receive. But, as the mother of your other half, you probably need to make the effort to buy her something. 

Instead of buying her a present that’s gratefully received but potentially likely to go unused or even just add more clutter about her home, why not give her an amazing experience instead? Rather than more ‘stuff’ or ‘things’, like a hastily bought gift set, our adventures are likely to be enjoyed much more and actually be put to good use. 

It could be an experience just for her, for her and her partner, or for you all to enjoy as a group. With so many experiences to choose from, we have something to suit all kinds of women. Take a look through the Adrenaline site and you’ll find a range of options to suit almost all budgets. 

Here are a few Christmas gift ideas for your mother in law:

  • Looking to seriously impress? Our hot air balloon rides will give her an experience she’ll never forget. These take in some of the most scenic landscapes in Australia, including locations like the Barossa Valley and Yarra Valley. 

  • Australia has some beautiful waterways and coastal areas and we have a range of cruises, many with refreshments and food included, to take in the picturesque views. Give her the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy a fun day out.

  • Our tours are a great way to see some of the best locations in Australia. They’re always fun and are a great gift idea as they’re something people don’t always think to buy for themselves. 

  • Dining and gourmet experiences are always a winner. Treat your mother in law to a delicious meal out, or give her the opportunity to enjoy a well-earned glass or two of her favourite tipple. They’re also a great way to tick off two gifts in one if you gift it to her and her partner to enjoy together.

Should I buy a Christmas present for a new mother in law?

Presents for a mother in law are tricky enough at the best of times, so if you’re buying for a new mother in law or future mother in law (who you may or may not know all that well) we understand the temptation to skip giving them a gift completely. However, as the mother of your beloved, the fact you’ve made an effort is sure to be appreciated. 

Don't know where to start? You're in the right place! Take a look at our range and use the filters for location and price range to narrow down your online gift shopping search. We think you'll also enjoy using our Adventure Gift Finder. This is an amazing way to get a variety of suitable gift ideas for her in a matter of moments. 

Our Christmas gift voucher can be bought for a specific experience, or for a dollar value of your choice. So, if you can’t settle on a specific gift for your mother in law, hand the choice over to her with an Adrenaline gift voucher. With the opportunity to buy this at a value of your choice, it's an option to suit all budgets. You don't have to break the bank to get a great gift, even our cheap Christmas gifts will put a smile on her face.

Where to find last minute Christmas gifts for your mother in law?

If time is running out to find a Christmas present for your mother in law then don't panic. Forget the stress of running to the shops, we’re here to help you get the best last minute gifts around from the comfort of your seat. 

The biggest advantage of giving an experience, rather than a material item, as a last minute gift, is it can be delivered quickly and easily by email. Zero stress about whether it'll arrive on time in the post or whether it'll fit her, just give an adventure instead.

Struggling to decide? Give a gift voucher or gift card and she can choose her own adventure! 

What are Christmas gifts for a mother in law who has everything?

Got a mother in law that has it all?  Not good news for those of us buying gifts for them! After all, what Christmas gift do you get a mother in law who has everything? Don’t panic, we have the solution. She might seem to have everything, but she can’t possibly have experienced everything. 

Old favourites like gift boxed goods and gift hampers will just be more ‘stuff’ that she probably doesn’t really need. So, save the waste, and go for a more unique gift idea for your mother in law this Christmas. 

With our huge range of experiences you’re sure to find something that she would love to do. We don’t just cater for thrill seeking mother in laws, there are plenty of more laid back options like cruises, tours and dining experiences too. Whatever you choose, they’re sure to be more appreciated than another item that she probably has plenty of already. 

How to impress your mother in law for Christmas?

Give her the opportunity to have some fun with an experience. Ditch the usual gifts like a scarf, perfume or gift boxes from the local pharmacy. These experiences are great way to give her a break from the norm and have some fun, while showing you care. Feeling really adventurous? Why not book to do experience together?
