Why Grandmothers Deserve Mother’s Day Gifts
Yes, Mother’s Day is a special day to celebrate our moms, but let’s not forget about our wonderful grandmothers! Just because their children are grown adults, they’re still moms and play a significant role in the lives of their grandchildren. They deserve to be recognized on this day, too.
Whether it's your grandma or your child's grandma, give her something special to show her how much she’s loved and appreciated. Below are a few of the best Mother’s Day gifts for grandma that are sure to put a smile on her face.
Best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for Grandma
Most grandparents are in a stage of their lives where they’re more interested in downsizing and decluttering. For this reason, the gifts that are sure to be welcomed and used are more sentimental gifts or gifts that give an experience, such as:
Photographs - Family photos, especially photos of precious grandchildren, will always be cherished by grandmothers. Print out photos of her and her grandchildren and frame them for a very sentimental gift for her home. She’ll display framed photos proudly, no matter how much she’s decluttered and simplified her physical possessions.
Gift Certificates or Gift Cards - Grandmothers love gifts for experiences. No matter what the grandmother in your life enjoys, you’ll be able to get her a gift certificate or gift card for it. Does she love pampering herself with a massage, manicure or pedicure - or all three? Get her a gift card to her favorite spa. Is she a foodie who dines out often with friends or her spouse? Then a gift certificate to her most frequented restaurant or to one she’s been wanting to try would make an ideal gift.
Tickets - If she’s a frequent moviegoer or adores the theater or symphony, buy her movie passes to her local movie theater or tickets for an upcoming play or other performance she’s excited to see.
Jewelry - Have a grandmother who likes accessorizing with earrings, necklaces and bracelets? Then jewelry is a thoughtful gift that she’s sure to get plenty of use out of. For functional and fashionable jewelry that can be worn every day, our women’s silicone rings are a fabulous option. No matter what your grandmother’s activities consist of or how active her lifestyle is, these rings deliver style, comfort and durability - she’ll think of you every time she looks at her ring!
Park Passes - Adventurous, outdoorsy grandmothers will be pleasantly surprised with a gift of a pass to a state or national park. You can also add on a couple of essentials for her to take with her on her visit, like a water bottle and trail mix.
Donations - Is there a nonprofit organization or charity that your grandmother strongly supports, whether via volunteering or monetary contributions - or both? Then we’re pretty certain that a donation to this organization will be a very meaningful gift.
And what if you have a grandmother who lives long-distance? Be sure not to let Mother’s Day pass without calling her to let her know you’re thinking of her. And surprise her by sending her a thoughtful card in the mail, as well as flowers or a fruit bouquet to make her day even more special. Of course, you can even place some of the gifts mentioned above right inside the card, like a gift card or tickets.
Whether you’ll be spending time with your grandmother this Mother’s Day or celebrating her from a distance, you’ll make her day when you take the time to let her know you care.
