If you are looking for ways to bond with your lovely new family, look no further! We have got 7 brilliant ideas on how to win them over in a heartbeat. You are never going to have to worry about that nagging mother-in-law or that strict father-in-law, or even that evil-minded sibling of your hubby anymore.
Here’s how you can get on their good side. Read on ladies!
1. Invite them over for lunch
It doesn’t have to be lunch, you can invite hem over for dinner as well. Basically, anytime you know that they will be free (you should be free too). There is no way to go around meeting them. Just feed them your yummy dishes and sweets and talk about all the things they like. Like-minded people always become friends quickly. And there is no better way than doing this over food.
2. Ask your mom-in-law to teach you how to cook your hubby’s favourite food
There is nothing more important to a mother than her child. So when you ask for a recipe, not only does it boost her ego, but it also gives her a message saying that you care about her child. When she knows that you love her child, she will automatically start loving you. It’s a foolproof plan ladies.
3. Ask your father-in-law for some financial advice
Your father in law will immediately be impressed by you if you do this, as he will know that you put the effort in holding your family financially. Show your true side to him. Show him what a boss you are at maintaining the finances in your family. Ask him for advice, be it financial or otherwise.
4. Go shopping with his sister
What better way to start bonding than shopping with his sister. Chances are that she is around the same age as you. So take her out shopping, get to know what she likes, dislikes, loves and hates. At the end of the day, you will have so much to talk about. It is the easiest and the most fun way to get her on your side.
5. Treat his brother at a good restaurant
The way to the heart is through the stomach right? So take your brother-in-law to a good restaurant and tell him that it’s your treat. And while eating food, bring up interesting topics that you both can contribute to. A good trick to quicken this relationship is to really listen to him when he is telling you something. Pay attention to him.
6. Send them thoughtful gifts
A gift is a way to win your in-laws over very easily. This gift need not be expensive or over the top fancy. It just needs to be thoughtful. A gift that they can keep with themselves for a long time or a gift that they can actually use instead of keeping it somewhere, will do just fine.
7. Lastly, just give them time
Good, healthy, and strong relationships take time and effort. It will not happen overnight. If you really want a relation that lasts for a long time, you need to keep calm and force this down their throat.
