What Are Good Christmas Gifts for Grandma?
From all I can tell, no author has ever been attributed to that quote, but whoever wrote it must have experienced the love that a grandchild and grandmother have for each other. There’s nothing like the love one has for a grandparent, and that’s true whether that grandchild is 5 years old or 55. Our grandmothers are special to us all.
With such a special bond and affection, you might think the Christmas gifts for her need to be just as special.
Truth be told, real Grandma’s will love whatever they get.
Still, you can find a great Christmas gift for her that will add to her holidays and remind her just how much she still means to the family.
Here are a few Christmas gift ideas for her that will help you find that perfect gift she will love, cherish, and enjoy.
Great Christmas Gifts for Grandma
Homemade Gifts for Grandma
It doesn’t matter if you are an adult, student, preschooler, or baby and parent, a grandmother is going to love something you have spent the time to make just for her.
Even if you aren’t very crafty, there are some easy homemade Christmas gifts to make on your own.
Homemade food gifts like Christmas cookies, Christmas candy recipes, gifts in a jar mixes, and holiday breads are all easy to make and can be packaged with or without a crafty adornment.
Plant gifts for Grandma are easy to assemble as well. Re-pot an indoor plant, add a pretty bow to a Christmas poinsettia, or create an hanging herbal basket, and you’ve created an easy and inexpensive gift that shows love during the holidays and beyond while keeping costs and expertise needed to a minimum.
You can also find many easy craft gift kits and projects online or right in craft stores for gift givers of all ages. While you can find quick and easy craft kits for kids, you can find some simple craft projects for teens and adults too. Kids aren’t the only ones who can have fun with craft projects!
Gift Baskets for Grandma
The best gift basket for Grandma is one that will take her likes into account while not forgetting her needs. However, even though you ARE remembering her needs, make sure any Christmas gift baskets for her will be something special. No matter how practical and helpful for Granny, no one will get a real blast from receiving a basket full of fiber bars and hemorrhoidal ointment.
Let Grandma have some fun with her holiday gift basket!
If Gran is a coffee lover, coffee gift baskets are always appreciatead.
Most older women seem to love chocolate and sweets, so cookie gift baskets and chocolate gift baskets could be great choices for her.
Cheese gifts baskets are nice gift ideas for an older woman as well.
Even hobbies can come into play when giving a gift basket for Grandma.
Gifts for gardeners can be purchased separately and organized in a wicker basket, fruit basket, or cardboard box covered with country or farm-like decorative self-adhesive contact paper.
Personalized gifts can be placed in a monogrammed bag.
Spa gifts can be placed beside a spa gift card inside a new gym bag.
There are many different themed gift baskets you can create yourself or order online, and with just an open eye, you can even find gift baskets with free shipping and delivery.
Just remember to keep Gran’s personality and likes in mind when you make or order a holiday gift basket for her!
Unique Gifts for Grandma
Each grandmother is unique, so why not consider some unique presents for Grandma?
If she lives close, a season’s pass to a nearby theme park where grandchildren can also go is a great gift that shows Grandma her presence in the family is still an enjoyable event. Make sure you meet her at, or take her to, the park a few times in that summer season then!
If your Christmas gift giving budget allows, consider purchasing some cruise tickets for Grandma and Grandpa to go on a cruise together. That kind of lets Grandma know you think she and Grandpa are still the hottest couple around in your book! That’s actually a pretty cool feeling for a Grandmother whether she’ll let you know that or not!
Brightly colored, lighthearted, and fanciful home decor is also a nice gift idea for the holidays. Wind socks, chimes, pillows, and garden gnomes can make a Grandmother smile, even on those harder days.
You might also consider some funny home decorations if Grandma has a sense of humor. Sometimes those funny signs and funny decor items are things she would like to have had but just never purchased because she was busy purchasing things for everyone else in the family.
At the very least, when you get a silly gift for Grandma, you may see her blush a little and smile for the moment, and that alone would be a precious gift for everyone.
Just as there are many great Grandmothers in this world, gifts for a great Grandma are there to be found as well. With a little thought and a whole lot of love, this holiday season should be a good one for everyone involved.
Many blessings to your entire family this Christmas season!
