Let’s be honest, grandparents and older loved ones can be simply the best. Each grandmother gives something different, from homemade cookies to illicit $10 bills to a love of heavy metal. Whether your grandparents participated in your upbringing or sent their love from afar, they deserve a special holiday. Unfortunately, Grandmother’s Day doesn’t exist (yet), but luckily, we’ve got Mother’s Day to show our loved ones some appreciation. So, don’t forget to get your older caretakers something special for Mother’s Day 2021.
We’ve compiled a Mother’s Day gift guide, too, just in case you’re looking for more ideas!
Sentimental Gifts for Grandma
Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day gift that you can never go wrong with. Pick up a bouquet to bring yourself, or schedule to have them delivered right to the door to ensure social distancing.
An adorable personalized and handmade coffee mug is a great gift for new grandparents that won’t break the bank.
This special, personalized print is the perfect way to show your loved one just how much you value your special relationship. It’s simple but beautiful, and something they’ll surely love looking at every day.
With this special keepsake memory book, you can partner with your loved ones to capture and preserve all of your special moments. Plus, it’ll be fun to walk down memory lane.
Photo albums typically only come out when we’re feeling nostalgic. These coasters will always be out, and will allow your loved one to relive their favorite memories with each sip. You can customize each coaster with any favorite photos.
Many grandparents love to brag about their families. Now, you can make it even easier by giving yours their own customizable “brag board.” The board has several clips where they can hang their favorite family photos, letters from loved ones or drawings from little ones.
With this beautiful birthstone necklace, grandparents can show off their stylish side and their loved ones in one fell swoop. As the family grows, you can add additional charms to their necklace.
Not only is this frame super easy to set up, but since it’s Wi-Fi-enabled, a milestone will never be missed. How, you may ask? As soon as you email your photos to the frame, they show up in seconds and send an alert that there are new pictures to view.
Cozy Gifts For Grandma
This beautiful lavender heat pillow will help soothe any minor aches and pains. For ultimate relaxation, the cotton pillow simply needs to be placed in the microwave for 90 seconds and placed on the neck, back, stomach or any other trouble spots.
These cozy slippers will help your loved one feel like they’re walking on cloud nine all year long. We all need a pair of soft house shoes to slip on at the end of a long day, and these aromatic spa-style relaxation slippers are sure to help with relaxation. The removable insoles in these slippers are filled with lavender buds and flaxseed, and can be heated in the microwave to help relax muscle tension.
This irresistibly soft chenille blanket is the perfect in-between-seasons staple, which will be much appreciated as winter turns to spring. For an extra special touch, have the blanket monogrammed with a set of initials.
Price: Ranges from $99.00–$109.00+
Soft. Hooded. Lounger. Need we say more? These ultra-cozy and cute hooded loungers will wrap your loved one in head-to-toe marshmallow-like softness. They come in three colors, so you can get one that suits any style.
Hobby-Related Gifts For Grandma
This baking kit includes everything your loved one needs to make all of their best baking dreams come true. And we mean virtually everything, for almost any baking occasion—like, say, cookie baking-and-decorating night. Dig around in this kit to find some easy-to-make cookie dough mixes and even some extra sprinkles to add on top.
Snag this cute antique-looking hummingbird feeder if your loved one is an avid backyard bird watcher. In warm weather, they can stick this antique glass feeder on a patio or outside a window to spot hummingbirds. Pro tip: While the green and clear options are gorgeous, the red feeder is your best bet since hummingbirds often feed on flowers that have red in them.
A custom cutting board is the perfect gift for those who never leave the kitchen. To complete the gift, set it up with a charcuterie spread and a beautiful set of cheese knives.
This sweet and easy-to-use herb garden will provide your loved one with a way to grow their favorite herbs all year long. It’s a kit that includes everything she’ll need to get started: non-GMO heirloom seeds (sweet basil, Italian parsley, sage, cilantro and thyme), compostable peat pots, rich potting soil discs (all certified USDA organic), plant markers and a growing guide.
If your special person loves flowers but doesn’t want the hassle of having to plant in the garden, then these indoor flower kits are a great gift option. They can place this vase on a windowsill to watch the birth flowers come to life—or you can pick out the birth flowers of other loved ones for a sweet nod to a growing family.
At any age, it’s hard to garden without hurting our knees. This lightweight steel and nylon garden stool combines the features of a tool bag and a folding chair that’ll help your special person work in the garden for hours without the pain.
