Nana, grandma, grammy—no matter what you call your beloved grandmother, she deserves a gift that’s as special as she is whether it's Mother's Day or not. To get an idea of what she really wants, we asked the grandmas in our lives to tell us what presents would truly make their day.

Whether she’s an avid gardener, morning walker, TV binger or bookworm—there’s a gift on this list that is perfectly personalized for her. From a fancy KitchenAid stand mixer ($450) to a custom pet portrait (from $70), here are 64 gifts for grandma (or your mom, if the gift is “from the kids”) that she’ll appreciate and *actually* use.

How We Chose the Best Gifts for Grandma

To cull this list, we polled the grandmothers in our lives, asking them about products and services they’d love to receive. Then, we scrupulously researched the available options at our favorite, editor-approved brands, taking into account buyer reviews, price points and return policies. We also recommended products that our editors have personally tested, vetted and loved.

Bird lovers will adore this window bird feeder that automatically upgrades any garden or backyard. Built for easy viewing and uncomplicated to clean, this feeder comes with a suction grip that features the the brand's Evergrip X4 technology, so it's less likely to pop off the window and crash to the ground. Reviewers say it's easy to assemble, and I like that it comes with a patented air circulation system to keep the bird seed from getting soggy.  Affordably priced under $40, this is a great deal to snag.

5. Hover Scrubber Omni Cordless Dual-Head Mop


Nobody keeps their home as immaculate as grandma (and nobody hounds you about your place more, but that's another story). Appeal to her inner neat freak with this cordless scrubber, which scrubs floors without requiring any bending, kneeling or pushing. Plus, I'm personally a fan of how it comes with multiple cleaning pads and a baseboard cleaning attachment that really helps with tackling those hard-to-reach spots. I'm betting she will be too.

She can grab makeup tips from Bobbi Brown, photography know-how from Annie Leibovitz and interior design inspiration from Corey Damen Jenkins—just to name a few.

You're never too old to upgrade your skincare routine. Treat grandma to this cult-favorite corrective cream that she may not splurge on herself, and she'll feel beyond pampered. She can use in the morning or night to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It’s even been tested by PureWow's very own Wellness Director Sarah Stiefvater, who said it worked so well, it caused her to put off a Botox appointment. The cream is formulated with 18% proxylane, a potent ingredient that's been shown to significantly reduce the look of wrinkles and sagging, and 0.1% glycyrrhetinic acid, which is said to support skin integrity and is backed by years of the brand's research on glycation (aka the process the body naturally goes through to weaken the skin's collagen and elastin that causes wrinkles).

The blanket’s chunky knit layers of organic cotton give it between ten and 25 pounds of weight, which creates a soothing sensation, almost like you’re being hugged, when you lay under it. According to one PureWow writer, Bearaby’s weighted blankets are by far the chicest (and most breathable) on the market, too.

60. Violet and Pine Best Grandma Ever Apron


Grandmas love novelty items, especially when they have to do with how much you love her. This pretty apron is a must for the gram who always hosts holiday dinners or bakes all of the family's birthday cakes. It has spacious front pockets to hold her things while she cooks and it can be personalized with her name or a message from the grandkids, thanks to Zazzle's easy customization tools. She'll wear it whenever she bakes and think of you (which hopefully means you'll get frequent cookie deliveries).

61. Maya Brenner Charm Necklace

Maya Brenner

Maya Brenner’s charm necklace is a beautiful way to let gran keep her grandkids close to her heart. Gift her this initial necklace (loved by none other than Meghan Markle) with a letter for each grandchild. You can pick between 14-karat yellow gold, white gold and rose gold, and choose diamond-encrusted letters and various other pendants. The best part is that you can add more letter charms via the company’s Add-A-Letter Boutique as more grandbabies come along.

64. Nations Photo Lab Canvas Prints

Nations Photo Lab

We all have too many photos that never leave our phones, grandma included. This year, pick a favorite shot of the two of you (or the whole fam) and use Nations Photo Lab to plaster it on anything from magnets to phone cases. I personally believe the canvas prints are what nana may love most. This one is handcrafted, comes in two different sizes and can be hung all around the house. If you want to be her favorite grandchild, bring a hammer and nails (or Command Hooks) and offer to put it up for her.

Where to Buy Gifts for Grandma

With grandmothers, it's a good idea to think a bit outside the box when shopping for gifts. Of course, Amazon is still great if you're in a pinch and want quick shipping for a wide selection of mainstream gifts. But if you have time, consider shopping at retailers like Zazzle, Uncommon Goods and Etsy for something a little more unique and special.

What Is a Good Gift for an Elderly Grandparent?

When shopping for a grandparent, consider their phase of life. Have they recently retired and want to pick up new hobbies? If that’s the case, then gifts like knitting kits, MasterClass memberships or flower-arranging boxes are sure to be hits.

Perhaps the grandparents in your life are older and mobility is an issue. That makes items such as smart tech devices and luxe pajamas good picks since they can be comfortably and easily used at home.
