Flowers make a great gift because they’re easy to send, but you can also think about getting her some of her favorite flowers or something that symbolizes what she means to you. Here are some suggestions!

2: Send a Personalized Card
Create a thoughtful card with your own photo or purchase one from places like Hallmark.com and include a handwritten message inside for the perfect gift that Grandma will cherish!
Grandmas will love receiving a handmade card with the best of intentions written inside! A kind sentiment or word can really go a long way in making her feel special.
I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day. I wanted to let you know that I love and miss you every day. You are my shining star in the sky!
Sent with Love.
The perfect present for your grandma this Mothers Day is a special card made just for her with photos from all of the memories you’ve shared. Use scrapbooking paper and punch out some hearts to create message bubbles like “I love spending time with you” or use stencils to make clouds, birds, flowers, or even raindrops on an overcast day. There are so many different things that could be incorporated into a customized collage-style Mother’s Day Card depending on what she does in her free time!
3: Grandma’s Love Aprons
An Apron makes a great gift for Grandma because it’ll remind her of all the times she’s helped you in the kitchen.
Pick up a vintage apron at an antique shop. With so many vintage apron choices, it will be easy to find the perfect choice for Grandma. These aprons come in different shapes and sizes with unique designs that make them perfect as gifts or accents to any kitchen!
4: Special Coffee Mugs
Grandmas who love coffee will be delighted with a personalized mug that’s just for them. Consider getting her some special coffee blends to include with a mug. Grandma will feel extra loved and appreciated when she drinks a delicious blend that was specially picked out just for her!
Besides the gift itself, it is important to remember that your message can be the most meaningful part of what you give her on this special day and show her how much she means to you.
5: Family Photos for Lasting Memories
Create a framed photo of your family and give it to your Grandma for this Mother’s Day. This is a great way of telling her how much she means to you and the rest of the family!
The photos could be framed in different ways, such as a photo book or an album that can be displayed. Showing Grandma pictures from all parts of her life will make her feel appreciated and loved. Make sure to include any children who may have their own families now, too, so they know they’re not forgotten either!
6: Keeping Grandma Warm
If you want something more personal, try printing off some digital copies at home using your printer or taking them into one of these stores like Costco or Walgreens, where professional printers are available.
A personalized blanket, luxurious socks, and the softest slippers ever will have her feeling like royalty on Mother’s Day!

7: Puzzles for Fun
Puzzles make a great gift for a grandma because they are something that she will enjoy doing with her grandchildren. Games and puzzles allow the family to bond and work together, but there are many different types of puzzles for any age group or skill level.
Sudoku, word search, puzzles, and other fun activities will challenge your brain in a meaningful way.
8: Stationery and Stamps
Grandmas love to send cards, letters, and notes to her family. Give a gift of stationery with stamps by giving personalized stationery that has their favorite designs on it, such as flowers or animals, and then pair it up with some pretty stamps so they can send cards!
The best thing about this is if you know what kind of card she likes to give out (ex: birthday cards for kids), then buy some matching stamps too.
9: Home Delivery Gift Certificates
Home delivery gift certificates for services like groceries, clothes shopping, or even for restaurants is a great gift idea because it’s so easy!
Please give them the option to order food online and have their favorite restaurant deliver straight to their door. This will allow Grandma to stay home in her pajamas all day if she doesn’t want to!
If they’re into gardening, give them a Home Depot Gift Certificate where they can order anything from flowers and plants right at their computer desk without having to get off the couch. Now Grandma has time on her hands with these gifts, which means more quality time spent with family – yay! 🙂
10: Take a Day Trip
Day trips don’t have to be too expensive. Plan a day trip around her favorite place, maybe the beach or an amusement park with family. Get together and spend some time just for Grandma!
I’m sure you’ve seen all the commercials about how to get your grandma out of her retirement home and back on the road. But where can she go other than Walmart? Well, we have a few suggestions for places that are perfect for an outing with granny in tow:
The museum is always interesting no matter what they’re featuring at any given time.
Take her on a hike and through meadows, for ice cream in the sun, or to watch fireworks at night!
11: Large Print Books and Magazines
When you buy a large print book or magazine for your aging loved one, they’ll be able to read it with ease. This is great because their eyesight isn’t as good anymore!
12: Popcorn and Movies
Online subscriptions to favorite movie channels like Netflix and Redbox are a perfect gift for Grandma because she can watch movies at her convenience while sitting in the living room.
