Sweet Grandma Gifts I Found On Twitter

Sweet Grandma Gifts I Found On Twitter

If you have a sweet grandmother, these sweet gifts for her may be right up your aisle! These gifts for grandma were posted on Twitter, but I’m sharing here! Read on!  

———-  

I can speak of gifts Grandmothers like since I AM one… a Grandma, not a gift, that is!  🙂

(Yea. Yea.  I did that on purpose, you know.  hehe)

Now you may need to ask my kids and grandkids if I’m one of those “sweet grandmas”.  I hope I am though.

The cool thing about life, however, is that grandchildren love their grandmothers, no matter the age difference, travel distance, or occasional imperfect, sweet Granny.   Grandchildren just love their Grandmas!

And grandmothers love their grandchildren back!

#love Grandma and Liam

I think grandmothers are perhaps one of those staples in life that makes sense of who we are as we grow up and then how we fit into our own world as life continues, even long afterwards.   

It seems likely then, with such sweet and precious love floating about, that children enjoy buying their grandmas sweet gifts.

I found a few of those on Twitter this morning, yes… surprisingly on Twitter… and thought I would just share a few of those with you here.  

You’ll get to see the folk that posted these gifts ideas on Twitter, (I want to give them credit, of course), but you won’t need a Twitter account to see them here.    

Now some of the Twitter posters may be posting these gifts as great Grandma gifts while others may be simply posting gift ideas in general, or even just purchases in general, of which I saw the connection as a Grandma and thought would be a good gift idea.  

Either way, here they are.

Grandma Gift Ideas From Twitter

Chef Kids Wall Photo

Posted by PinkPoster @ThePinkPoster 

Do you have a grandmother around who likes to bake or who took your child (their grandchild) under her wings for a while to do some cooking projects with your child?  Then this Chef Kids Wall Photo idea by PinkPoster @ThePinkPoster might be an idea you like. 

@ThePinkPoster has other cute ideas like this as well, but this one just struck my fancy for some reason.  

I wonder why…..  🙂 

Cooking with the Grandkids

 

Surprise “Hi Grandma” Coffee Cup

Posted by Mommy’s Coffee @Mommyscoffeee 

Wow… this is one great grandma gift for a coffee drinker grandma… or a tea aficionado.  It’s even a great gift for a NEW grandma.  Consider this too…. What a nice gift for a grandma to be!  In THAT event, and Grandma doesn’t know yet she is going to be a grandma, make sure you give it to her already filled with her favorite hot drink (or even bagged beverage mix or tea bags tucked inside). 

Can you imagine her surprise when she takes that last drink of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?

 

The Hi Grandma coffee cup plus many more mommy, daddy, and family coffee cup gifts… AND unique birth announcements… can also be found at the MommysCoffee Shop on Etsy at:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/519812665/grandma-gift-grandma-gifts-for-grandma  

 

Grandma Bracelet

Posted by VickysLittleSecrets @Vickys228

For the grandmother who likes jewelry, you might like to buy a grandma bracelet something like this one.   

 

Now of course, consider first if Grandma has a favorite stone or color (gold, silver, etc) before purchasing jewelry.  However, pearls are precious stones and often associated with wisdom.  Plus pearls are beautiful in every way, timeless, classic, and enduring.  

Doesn’t that all kind of fit the definition of “Grandmother”?  

If you don’t have a special order for Grandma, the traditional beauty of a pearl bracelet can’t be beat.

A Book About Love

Posted by Chris Stevens @Padoozles 

All right.  All right.  I’ll admit I JU—ST now put this on Twitter, but I JU—ST now happen to notice it and wanted to pass it on to you all here too.  All my ideas here had to be from Twitter though…right???…  so I kind of cheated and posted it there on Twitter first.  🙂 

Well, consider this… 

A book showing love for grandma, especially a book grandma and grandchilden can read together, can be one of the nicest gifts a grandchild could possible give to a grandmother.  

 

A book, appropriate to a child’s age, can be something grandmothers share with their grandchildren – a gift of time, sometimes laughing, sometimes tears, and always love shared.  

You can also find “I Love You, Grandma”, plus other childrens’ books for grandparents, here:  http://amzn.to/2nxT4tR

All these great grandma gifts are gift ideas you can either purchase or create in your own special way.  The idea is to celebrate the special love of a grandma for her grandchild – or the special love of a grandchild for his or her grandma.  It goes both ways, and that’s what makes life so nice.

Plant Gifts for Grandma!

You can even find a great gift for Grandma which the grandkids can put together at your local plant nursery!  Just let the kids pick out a lovely flowering plant or perennial and a corresponding pot or planter; then purchase some planting soil, and assemble a beautiful homemade Easter present or homemade Mothers Day gift for Grandma!

Speaking of plants and flowers, have you ever thought of giving Grandma some homemade aromatherapy gifts snuggled in a big bath towel?

Aromatherapy oils, candles, and any combination aromatherapy products could be neatly packaged together with some pretty, natural decorations on the outside of the wrapping.  You might even want to make your own skin products or scented, soy candles!  Such natural, homemade gifts for women are perfect for the Grandmother who enjoys the natural beauty of the earth.

Food Gifts in a Jar

Homemade food gifts in a jar are not only easy gifts to make, it’s always fun to watch the kids discover there are a few M&Ms or chocolate chips left that just can’t fit into the jar, no matter what.

Or course, if there are TOO many candy pieces left, Mom will be giving Grandma a REALLY special gift, and that will be her hyper grandchildren for the entire afternoon!

These two crafts (with directions below) require a little more work but will make beautiful and very personalized homemade gifts Grandma would very much enjoy.

Painted Glassware

Accenting clear glassware with paint designs, flowers, dots, or lines on the bottom of the glassware is easy and can make a nice gift regardless of the artistic level of the craft creator.  Known as back painted glass because the glass is painted on the underneath or outside side – the backside – any painting will look elegant from the opposite side.

Have each child make their own dinner set, dessert set, or glass coffee cup for grandma, have an older child create an entire matching set of clear dishes, or decorate a clear serving tray.  No matter what you use, it will be pretty and will be appreciated.

What you will need:

  • Clear glassware such as snack trays, dinner plates, coffee cups, or a serving tray
  • Dish soap and water
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • High gloss acrylic enamel
  • Foam plates to use for pouring and dipping paint
  • Pencil with round-tip eraser, optional
  • No. 5 round paintbrush

Directions:

    1. Wash the glassware with dish soap and warm water and clean again with rubbing alcohol.  This process provides a better surface for paint adhesion.  Do not touch where you are going to paint after you do this.
    2. Squeeze a small amount of paint onto a foam plate, and decorate the bottom (or outside) of the glass pieces as desired.  Use the pencil eraser for dotting and the paint brush for filling in crevices, drawing lines or curlicues, flowers, shapes, or pictures.  Sometimes just putting simple polka dots in one color alone makes a beautiful piece of artwork!
    3. Let the paint dry.
    4. To make the paint dishwasher safe and more durable, place the decorated pieces in a 325 degree oven and bake for 40 minutes in a well ventilated room.
    5. Turn the oven off when done, and LEAVE THEM IN THE OVEN UNTIL THEY HAVE COMPLETELY COOLED inside the oven.

Award Winning Product!  Embed your child’s photo, picture, drawing, or coloring page right into a plate Grandma can use!  See it here:  Makit Products Inc. Make A Plate for Grandma  (Amazon Affiliate Link)
