Here are some simple suggestions for mothers-in-law and sons-in-law on Jamai Sasthi

But the easiest way would be to know whether he is a sports enthusiast. When you are at a loss for what to get him, you can’t go wrong with a sporting goods store gift card. That means he can get his favourite things, but pick them out himself. Don’t every underestimate the power of a gift card.
Gifting a night out will also be a popular choice for most of you because you can also get your daughter to enjoy the gift. If they have kids, then you will enjoy it too because that means you get to spend time with your grandchildren. They probably need a night off away from the kids. So buy them movie tickets and a gift card to a nice restaurant where they can enjoy themselves and fall in love all over again.
Of course, the traditional gifts like clothes, watches, toiletries and shaving kits are there to fall back on if you are in a hurry or if your son-in-law will prefer them more. Also, arrange for that special Bengali spread that you cook with all love and care. There is no substitute to maach, bhaat, torkari cooked with dollops of love.
Ensure that you taste the local cuisine and not go to, say, a south Indian joint in Phuket!
