9. The Snobby Mother-In-Law
She's above the fray, and certainly above you and your budget. She
buys everything from Neiman Marcus or some European boutique. It's time
to play her game. Package your gift in a shopping bag or, better yet,
a gift box, tissue, and ribbon from a high-end store (pay for it, if
you have to). On the other hand, maybe you should just give her the box - empty.

10. The Husband-Obsessed Mother-In-Law
This MIL really needs a
man. When you go out with her, she's always trying to impress the
nearest middle aged man - even if he's with his wife! She's persistent about
asking you to find her a nice date and you just don't want to be in the
position of fixing up your MIL! Why not help her indirectly? There's
a book for everything, you know. And How To Marry Money will give her real tips on how to meet men, and rich ones at that.

11. The 'You're Not Good Enough For My Daughter' Mother-In-Law
Oh, yeah? Well, if you think I'm not good enough, you need to see this movie! Son-In-Law. (This is actually pretty funny!)

12. The Cheap Mother-In-Law
always crying poor, but she's really just cheap. She sponges off you,
never picks up the check, and asks you to do her shopping - always
conveniently forgetting to pay you back. The Economic Stimulus Checks are designed to stimulate spending. Give your cheap MIL her own Stimulus Check to stimulate her
spending. These checks come in a package of 25, so you can make this
gift to your MIL for several occasions.

13. The Know It All Mother-In-Law
Whether she does or doesn't genuinely know a lot, know it all MILs are as annoying as as a mosquito bite on your bum. The Book of General Ignorance: Everything You Think You Know Is Wrong is sure to challenge her; at least it will keep her busy for awhile.
