21 Gifts That Will Make You Stop Complaining About Your Own Mother-in-Law

Psychologists believe that we find it difficult to have a good relationship with our mothers-in-law for many reasons, one being because they feel they have to compete with us for the attention of their children. But the mothers-in-law you’re about to read about might make you feel grateful for yours, even if you don’t get along that well with her. We discovered this by following a Reddit thread where people shared the worst gifts they ever received from their partners’ mothers, and some of them are so offensive that we feel super sorry for them, and at the same time, pretty good about our own in-laws. Remember, things can always be worse...

So, thinking ahead, now that the Christmas season is about to start, Bright Side compiled some of the worst gifts received by daughters-in-law to prepare you for the worst. Maybe this year, when you open your gifts, you’ll be a bit more thankful.
