Photo Book or Calendar
Grandmas can’t always see their grandchildren, so the next best thing is to see pictures. A photo book, calendar, or digital frame is a great way to keep those memories close. You can create a custom photo book, calendar, or digital picture frame with pictures of all the grandkids. Calendars are especially nice because you can not only include large pictures or collages but also special dates like birthdays and anniversaries.
Spending time with grandma while matching puzzle pieces and listening to stories of her childhood is a wonderful way for grandparents and grandkids to bond. If mom or dad join the fun it can be a great experience for multiple generations. Puzzles can also be a very cathartic time picking over puzzle pieces and getting lost in thought. You can choose a puzzle with a picture of something amusing or maybe somewhere your grandma once visited.
Does your grandma love to cook? A cookbook with kid-friendly recipes is the perfect gift idea to kick off good times in the kitchen with grandma. There are so many different types of cookbooks to choose from. You can pick a cookbook with recipes from Italy, Mexico, or Asia and recipes could be for any meal of the day, or snacks and desserts. Grandma and grandkids can enjoy time together and delicious food.
Keepsake Sharing Journals
A journal that’s meant to share experiences and life lessons between grandmothers and granddaughters is a great way to build a lasting connection between the generations. There are journals with prompts that guide you to different topics to kick-start memories annotating those words of love. If you already have topics or stories you want to read about, consider buying a blank keepsake journal and writing your own prompts.
Personalized presents are a sweet way to show your grandma that you think of her and how much you care. You can choose a personalized necklace, bracelet, or picture keychain with the birthstones, initials, or names of all the grandkids. You may also personalize a pillow or blanket with grandbaby pictures or names imprinted on the fabric.
A gift basket with your grandma’s favorite meats with cheeses and crackers is a delightful way to show how much you care. You can sweeten the gift with things like chocolates, cookies, and tea. Your grandma might also enjoy a gift basket with scented candles and other scented items for her home. Does grandma still work? If she needs a relaxing treat at the end of the day gift grandma a Spa gift basket.
Willow Tree Sculptures
A Willow Tree sculpture is a beautiful and sentimental gift for your grandma. You can choose a sculpture that features a grandmother holding a grandchild, or one where a grandma’s child is holding her grandchild. How wonderful it would be to reminisce about time spent with their child and grandchild. There are many other Willow Tree sculptures that might represent the special bond between grandma and grandkids.
A Kudoboard is a digital board or card where you and a group of people can collect messages, photos, and videos. A Kudoboard would be great for both the grandkids and grandma to share and communicate with each other. It’s a great way to share a bit of technology and life with your grandma show her how much you love her and appreciate all the ways she has touched your life.
There are so many gift ideas for grandmas with lots of grandkids. You might think they have everything but it’s the personalized and thoughtful gifts that mean the most. Whether you choose a photo book, a puzzle, a cookbook, a Kudoboard, or anything else from the list above the most important thing is to show your grandma how much you love and appreciate her.
