For once I want to impress her because my sister in lawis always nagging how bad my presents are for christmas. This year i found this new line of natural body products, because last year she thought i ws ruining her skin with the lush gift set i got her. Next time i came to visit i saw it in the trash. yep she hates me, but i got her this peach nectar gift set, and i am hoping she will like it.... how do you think it will turn out?
the set is:

I think both of those gifts you've chosen are very nice. It's thoughtful of you to try and pick something organic so she wouldn't feel like you are out to get her skin.
I have a relative who's like your SIL. She is very picky and doesn't like anything that has any bad rep attached to it (like cancer with teflon or scented products, etc). In fact, she used to have this bad habit that she'll tell you exactly what she thinks of your gift and her comments are usually negative. She didn't do it to be mean, it's just who she is, but still, I was always offended whenever she talks about my gifts. I eventually stopped buying her anything fun and switched to gifts certificate. I'm not a huge fan of certificates b/c it's such a throughtless gift (unless I know they'll appreciate it, eg. Starbucks cert. for a university student!), but for my relative, she can't complain about $$, right?
Anyway, what I'm trying to say is, I think it's sweet of you to put so much thought into her gift. You've done your best and if she doesn't appreciate it, then don't worry about it. Some people are just negative, even during such a festive and fun season.

first of all i think your gifts are very nice! and, honestly its the thought that counts right?? wow your sil sounds pretty mean...!! what sort of gifts does she get you?
Well if i were you i would just get her a gift certificate. then again if she really is the mean type, she'll complain "so and so gave me only $50 gift cert what do i do with that!!" you know the thing with these types of ppl, no matter what you do, there's no pleasing them....

I think you are very thoughtful in what you are trying to do for her, but honestly if I were in your shoes I'd stop buying her gifts. Since she clearly doesn't appreciate them and they will just end up in a landfill, I would either just take her out for dinner or a drink or something in lieu of a product, or just stop exchanging gifts. That kind of attitude is terrible and you shouldn't enable that aspect of her personality.
