While mother-in-laws often get a bad rap, most are loving and provide an additional avenue of support for the family, offering advice, guidance, and even babysitting services! With that positive thought in mind, they, too, deserve a special day all to their own in recognition of all the good things they do.
This blog post provides a brief background on the origin of this special October celebration and offers up some great ideas for the mother-in-law in your life who you appreciate.
Origins of Mother-in-Law Day
The special day is really a recent creation, having been started in 2002 to recognize an often forgotten family member. While it is not known who actually started Mother-in-Law Day, it could well be the brain child of the greeting card companies.
However it happened, Mother-in-Law Day is always celebrated on the fourth Sunday of October and provides a way to show some love to your other mom.
Gift Ideas for Mother-in-Law Day
Just like Mother’s Day, similar gift ideas apply for that special mother-in-law in your life. Here are some of our ideas available on our online store and in our Albuquerque flower shop locations:
- Flowers are always a favorite gift for moms who never seem to have enough in their lives and may not necessarily splurge that often on themselves.

From bright sunflowers to dramatic hues of orange, yellow, and burgundy among our other fall flowers, there is a wide range of fall flower arrangements available to suit all budgets not to mention we have many on sale!
