Finding the perfect gift for the woman everyone loves can be quite tough, but not impossible. Grandma surely just wants a present that shows you care, is useful, and extra points if it's sentimental. And you can achieve all of that without blowing your budget.
Below are the best gifts for grandma:
Grandma probably has a few old school photo albums, but this is one way to take digital photos and turn them into stylish books. Just upload some of her favorite pictures, customize the cover, colors, and captions, and you can create a book she'll adore forever. This is a pretty affordable gift that packs a sentimental punch.
If she's just too fly to call herself "grandma," there's a perfect, hilarious present you might want to add to cart. The "Glam-Ma" mug comes in 11 or 15 ounces and has "too young, glamorous and fabulous to be called grandma" on the back. The mug has a glossy finish and you can choose between a black or white handle.
Are you tired of helping grandma find her glasses? Give her this kitty to keep by her side, whether that’s near the couch, next to her bed, or by her favorite reading nook. This pretty piece of functional decor has a charming story, too: It’s hand-carved from a single piece of wood by Fair Trade Indian artisans.
Let grandma snuggle up with her evening programming with this super soft and luxurious faux fur throw. She'll love the way this feels and will also enjoy displaying it on the back of her couch. This throw comes in a frost gray, ivory, or alpine brown color so choose one that suits her style and decor best.
Comfort is the name of the game with this pair of slippers. The loafer-style shoes are easy to slip on and the wool lining doesn't just provide warmth, but feels great against tired feet. The rubber sole makes for easy walking and the quality of the shoe is impeccable.
"There was a slight break-in period, but all in all, these moccasins are a great choice if you tend to have cold feet and find yourself needing a pair of slippers that will hold up to the occasional trip outside."—Erika Owen, Product Tester
This picture frame is a bit more expensive than others, but for good reason. This is a digital frame that's controlled remotely and users can send photos, videos, and even audio to the frame. This is a great way for grandma to see all the latest family photos. Set up is a breeze and the frame is available in 10 or 15 inches.
So your grandmother makes the best meatballs you’ve ever had? Or maybe you look forward to a fresh batch of her famous chocolate chip cookies whenever you come to visit. Either way, you’ll want to make sure she writes those recipes down. This fill-in-the-blank cookbook has room for over 80 original recipes, plus spots for photos and family reviews.
If grandma’s already made her way through the adult coloring book you gave her last year, up the ante with a skill that’s a little harder to master. This instructional book is an easy-to-understand beginner’s guide to creating beautiful faux calligraphy, print fonts, and brush lettering. The interactive workbook includes 46 unique workshops, each with a fun design challenge.
Whether grandma lives down the street or thousands of miles away, the Echo Show can help the family stay connected through video calls. The device is easy to use and the sound quality and large 10 inch display is user friendly. She'll also be able to watch movies, shows, or ask Alexa questions.
Does everyone always gather at grandmas, no matter the holiday? Or maybe grandma regularly takes on babysitting duty? Either way, you’ll want to make sure she has plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained. To play this game, players match hilariously awkward family photos with caption cards. The concept is simple—the person who creates the best pair wins—but it’ll have the whole family in stitches.
One time gifts are cool, but subscriptions are the gifts that keep on giving. The Wine of the Month Club can be sent to a recipient for three, six, or 12 months. Each shipment includes two full size bottles of wine. Choose between two reds, two whites, or one red and one white. This is definitely a gift grandma will look forward to every month.
Grandma probably has a favorite photo, either of herself or the family. This puzzle is the perfect way to take her fave pic and turn it into a customized gift. The 48-piece puzzle measures 8 x 10-inches with the choice of a horizontal or vertical orientation. It even comes in a storage box with the design on the outside.
If she looks forward to a good book and a cup of tea on the porch every afternoon, give grandma this gift set. The green tea leaves are handcrafted to create gorgeous flowers when brewed, and a clear glass teapot ensures she doesn’t miss a thing. It’s the perfect antidote to a routine afternoon, but it’s also a great party trick.
If staying sharp is one of her main priorities, why not gift her a crossword puzzle book that will keep her brain on point. This book has 80 puzzles in a large print so she will have an easy time reading the clues and filling in the boxes. This is meant to be used from the front to the back because the puzzles become progressively more challenging.
