I REALLY don't know what to get my MOH!

I picked out this really nice necklace/bracelet set..(Well, I really liked it! ) and asked my FMILs opinion (FSIL is my MOH) and she says 'oh, she won't like that at all'

Ok, I kind of expected that, although it did hurt my feelings a little... (If I wasn't so broke I would have kept it for myself!!!) But I REALLY don't know what to get this girl!!! She is not a 'girly-girl'. She won't wear jewelry, won't dress up, never wears make-up, refuses manicures/pedicures. .. NOTHING even remotely feminine!

I need some help girls!!! I really don't want to get her a gift certificate... she is going to be my SIL, I want to get her something really nice and meaningful.

Nothing, except she's very 'outdoors-y' but not athletic and no specific interests really...

She's kind of into geology but I really didn't want to go get her a rock!

Mabey you could pay for an adult ed course at a local school for geology. Night classes at a high school are usually pretty cheap.

Re: I REALLY don't know what to get my MOH!

Is she into writing in a journal?

You could get a really nice leather bound journal and have it engraved.

I got my MOH diamond earrings. Earrings are never overly girly and I find that most girls love them.

Nope, she won't wear jewelry at ALL. She also has a degree in earth sciences... but thank you for the suggestions, girls. I still haven't come up with anything.

Re: I REALLY don't know what to get my MOH!

how about tickets to the rose center for earth science at the hayden planetarium in NYC (museum of natural history) and tickets to a play for the evening...the museum should be pretty inexpensive and something you know she'll enjoy, and you can get tickets for her to a show like Proof - something more cerebral than a musical...
