Best Present for Grandmothers

Updated on June 7, 2015

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. None the less, when birthdays and Christmas come along we try to find the right gift. 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 one many grandmothers like.

My Grandmother when she was young.

This 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 is in a keepsake book.

Nighttime Fragrances

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

Summary

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.

    KKGals, She was such a precious grandmother too. I don't ever remember her raising her voice at us and we weren't always those perfectly behaved little children. Thanks so much for your comments.

    Wonderful selection of gifts. It can be hard to pick a present for a grandmother sometimes, they already seem to have everything. Love the picture of you grandmother, she's quite a striking woman.

    drbj, I remember her as a wise woman who knew how to handle situations without stress and I never heard her yell at anyone. You just listened when she spoke. Thanks for your comment.

    What a wonderful picture of your grandmother. She looks like she was a woman of strong convictions. And probably ahead of her time.

    The best gift for grandmothers and grand dads alike is to vote out the democRATS this November so they can afford to live once more!
