Give Grandma this simple wooden birdhouse kit, complete with six paints and a paintbrush, as a memorable activity to do with the grandkids this Mother's Day. Or, have the kids build and decorate the birdhouse in advance for Grandma to treasure.
Does Grandma have a green thumb? Give her a sturdy perch for gardening that will keep her off her knees, and a set of new tools with wooden handles and a detachable storage tote. Have each child choose a packet of seeds for Grandma to plant in her garden!
After chasing those kiddos around, Grandma needs a new pair o' shoes! Keds are back in fashion and come in a rainbow of colors, prints, and styles. Choose from fruity, floral, or other fun prints on classic canvas, or try new styles in crochet, eyelet, and other pretty fabrics.
Celebrate Grandma's love of baking with this cute set of ceramic cat measuring cups. When they're not in use, they make a great kitchen decor! Want to really make Grandma's day sweet? Buy all the ingredients she'll need for a day of baking with her favorite little sous chefs!
Grandma will wear this darling charm with pride on a bracelet or necklace. It's available in the shape of a little girl or boy, and comes in white gold or yellow gold (about $230) or sterling silver or yellow-gold-plated sterling silver (about $20). The charm is engravable, and will make a great conversation piece.
This isn't your average deck of cards! It's a collection of 20 activities for grandparents and grandchildren (ages 4 to 10) to enjoy together. Activities include a nature walk, cooking, joke telling, and something called the "Tic Tac Toe-Lympics." Each card includes space for jotting down notes about the activity, so the deck of cards becomes a special keepsake.
Oh la la! Grandma will love using this chic basket for trips to the farmer's market or beach, or to store her gardening tools or knitting materials. Consider filling it with all the fixin's for a picnic with the grandkids, or simply with a bouquet of tulips or her favorite blooms.
Start Grandma on a yoga kick! She'll love this gentle form of exercise, which can improve her flexibility, relieve stress, and lift her spirits. Include a DVD or book on yoga for older beginners, or even a gift certificate for some intro level yoga classes in her area.
Whether she goes by Grandma, Nana, Grammy, Mimi, or another name, your kids' grandmother will love a sign that proudly proclaims "Grandma's House." Choose from a variety of personalized signs sold on Etsy (we love the one that says 'What Happens at Grandma's House Stays at Grandma's House') or Amazon.
Grandmas have gone high-tech! Many grandparents these days have a cell phone, which has become a modern-day "brag book" of sorts for showing off digital photos of the grandkids. Why not get Grandma a new phone case that constantly displays your child's cute face for maximum doting? Check out these other ideas for personalized digital photo gifts.
