You don’t need a special occasion to celebrate your grandma. Whether you live close to her or far apart, show her you love her by getting her a gift she’ll always remember.

Diane Gottsman, a national etiquette expert who runs The Protocol School of Texas, shared the importance of the thought behind a gift. “Remember, it’s not so much the gift but the memory you make by writing a special note or letter,” says Gottsman. “Time is more precious than any other gift, and giving Grandma the gift of time, along with the gift, makes it even more special.”

From personalized gifts to practical items that will make her life easier, we have plenty of gifts on our list that your grandma is sure to enjoy. Shop our top gifts for Grandma and let her know how much you love her.

Questions and Answers

What do you get for a grandma who says she doesn’t want anything?

Whether they’re too modest to request anything or don’t know what they want, it’s always nice to receive a gift. “Even though Grandma may have everything she needs, it’s always nice to open a present and feel the joy of receiving a gift from someone she loves,” says Gottsman. “She can never have enough cozy pajamas or a slip-proof pair of fuzzy slippers.” Whatever you decide to get her, she’s sure to love it if it’s a gift from the heart.

What is a good gift for a grandma-to-be?

Being a new grandma is exciting, and it’s great to have something to capture those special moments. “There are actually journals for the first-time grandma to capture the milestones,” says Gottsman. She also recommended personalized jewelry as a nice gift.

How much should you spend on a gift for your grandma?

The price of a gift isn’t what’s important; it’s the thought and heart that counts. Everyone is different, and your personal budget and situation should indicate how much you spend. ​​”It really depends on your personal budget; $25 to $100 is a good number to shoot for when buying something special,” says Gottsman. The gifts on our list vary in price, so whatever your budget, you’ll find a great gift to give your grandma.
