Best Present for Grandmothers
Grandmothers are Special
Finding the best gift for your grandmother isn't always easy as they seem to have everything they need and often have a house cluttered with various sentimental items. Many are trying to downsize, so it is important to think of something they would appreciate.
They are usually appreciative of most any nice gift, but it is always nice if you can find something you know they want. If you can get a gift that is personalized in some manner that is even better.
If you truly can't find a gift that would suit her or she tells you not to buy a gift, than you might consider making a small donation to a charity of her choosing. Of course, you make the donation in her name. This is a nice way to commemorate a special occasion and many grandmothers might like this.

Flowers - Other Good Choices
Grandmothers often like flowers, and they typically like a particular type of flower. A bouquet is usually appreciated. She may also want a plant, such as a orchid.
Some Grandmothers might like a special type of choclate candy. It is important to know what she might like before you shop.
Some may like a new nightgown, slippers, new purse or a sweater, so clothes are not entirely out of the question.
If you grandmother is on a fixed income she might like a gift card for a particular gift card for a meal out at a restaurant of her choosing. She may also want a gift card for Amazon if she reads many books. Does she have a Kindle? If so, she orders books.
A digital photo frame with a picture of you and your family would also be appreciated.
There is a book is titled "Between You and Me" and it is a nice book for your grandmother and grandfather to make a keepsake for your. If they write some little memory or thought every day and eventually give the book back to you, it is a keepsake that you will always treasure.
No amount of money can buy a gift that means more than this book. I would absolutely love to have the words from my grandparents written in a keepsake book.
Grandmothers usually enjoy some wonderful smelling dusting powder, as well as, Bath and Body Works soothing lotion for nighttime. Often their skin is dry, so lotions are much appreciated.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Grandmas
I find great pleasure in giving my mother a special gifts when I can find something that has some special meaning. My father passed away in 2002, and you don't know in life how long someone will be with you.
So, it is worth a little thought and trouble to me to find the best gift for the grandmother of my children as we all love her so much.
