Soyez sûr de faire plaisir en choisissant le présent qui correspondra exactement à celui qui le recevra.
The first line is the heading encompassing the following 3 lines.
Unfortunately, I have no idea what type of mother-in-law (or indeed, stepmother!) this is, my only stab so far being "A glamorous mother-in-law". OK, I did think of "Mother-in-law from hell" but ruled that out, as the aim of this book is to inpire the reader to give pleasure through gifts... viz the bottom line -- although, that doesn't specify who is in fact being pleased, and a few of the suggested gifts are fairly quirky to say the least!
Unfortunately, this line isn't a specific heading, so I can't check against the text to see what type of pressies are being suggested for this character...
I'm afraid "Queen of the night" doesn't work for me.
So I'd be very grateful for any suggestions - many thanks!

|thanks so much everybody! In the end the consensus seems to be that she is is an all-night party animal, and most of the answers are variations on this theme. Which makes it exptemely hard to grade this, and I wish I could dish out more points!|
btw, I had hoped that this was a set idiom, but it seems this isn't the case
