on 'something nice,' which you could keep to pass to your children as a reminder of their grandmother, what would you get?
I was thinking a nice watch, but Im not sure how well that would go as an 'heirloom'
(mil left some money for my x0th birthday present, but passed away before we could see how she wanted us to spend it. We want something to keep for DD to remember her nana by)

If you had $1000 to spend...

Sorry to hear your mil passed away.
Depending on your interests??? And who you would pass it along to. When my grandmother died I was given some money too. I bought a diamond necklace. When I wear it I always think of her. I always think jewellery is timeless.

I agree buy some jewelry!
Necklace, ring, earings, watch - anything!
Also go out for a nice dinner together

yeah I'd probably get a necklace or something that she could wear to remember her

A beautiful tea cup, with matching saucer and side plate.
It's a very Nanna thing to get.
That would be about 150, then spend the other 850 on yourself xx

I'd try and buy and piece of jewellery from the year of her birth.
We have a local antique jewellers who would be able to do this. If you have one I'd track them down as they order a lot of there antiques from a massive catalogue. It's all very legit too, no fakes. I has brought a few things from them.

Definitely jewellery of some sort.

Sorry for the loss of your MIL
What about a nice piece of art to hang on the wall, or a silver plate/good clock/piece of crystal? I think if it was me, I would like to have something to display... we have one of FIL's trophies on a shelf and a painting that my Dad did...
Or some matching rings that could be worn by siblings...
I'm sure you will find something that is fitting, what a nice idea though

Jewellery? Something classic like a nice string of pearls or something.
Maybe some nice serving ware? You know, like a good proper set of silver cutlery or some crystal glasses or china or something.
Some sort of beautiful clock... though I have no idea how much these things are.
I dunno, they'd be the kinds of things I think would pass down well.

What about a nice necklace with a locket? You could put her photo in it.
