Your soon-to-be mother-in-law has gone above and beyond to help you with the big day, and now it’s time to show her just how special she is. The right gift will do just that, and she'll appreciate your thoughtfulness as you build your relationship together.

When picking out a gift for the mother of the groom, consider her taste and personality. Would she most appreciate something personal? Try something that you can customize with her monogram or with a sweet message of gratitude. Does she love the finer things in life? A sparkling pair of earrings or luxury pajama set might be more up her alley. Or is she more of a hostess? In that case, you might want to go with something functional that she'll use over and over again—think a statement serving bowl or whimsical wine glasses.

Read on for the best gifts for the mother of the groom.

Final Verdict

If you want to gift the mother of the groom a custom gift, we’d recommend the Gardens of Graces Personalized Jewelry Dish or the Mark and Graham Everyday Italian Tote. If you’re looking to splurge on a luxurious thank you (that she'll use for some much-needed self-care), you can’t go wrong with the Papinelle Silk Pajamas or Mulberry Silk Bundle for a good night’s sleep. 

What are some creative mother of the groom gift ideas?

While it's a nice gesture, don’t necessarily need to buy the mother of the groom a physical gift to show her your gratitude and appreciation. Book an experience for the two of you—think a fun spa day or wine tasting at a vineyard—as a way to bond and spend time together.

What are the mother of the groom duties? 

The mother of the groom’s involvement is traditionally more limited than those of the mother of the bride, and up to the couple’s discretion. You can invite her to come to a meeting with the caterer or florist, and she’ll help you collect names and addresses for guests on the groom’s side of the family.

Consult with her to see if there are any special readings or rituals she wants to be included in the ceremony. She may offer to host the rehearsal dinner, and one of her major responsibilities is to help round up and seat family and friends on the big day.
