Best Christmas Gifts for Grandma

Best Christmas Gifts for Grandma

Your grandma’s always been there to spoil you, so now it’s your turn to spoil her. Give her a gift she didn’t know she wanted this Christmas, whether that’s decor to update her home or gardening gear for her favorite hobby. To find a present for her that will make this holiday season extra special, check out these Christmas gift ideas for grandma.


Throw Blankets Like Warm Hugs

Add a soft accent to your grandma’s couch with a luxurious blanket or throw. For extra warmth during the colder holiday season, provide a thick wool blanket to cozy up with. Soft cotton throws are breathable options for year-round use that are easy to clean. For some holiday flare, go for a knit blanket with a Fair Isle motif or pick a sherpa fleece that’s rugged enough for sitting around the patio fire pit.


Tea Kettles to Whistle in the New Year

Whether she enjoys serving tea and cookies when guests visit or brewing a cup of Earl Grey for her afternoon tea, a beautifully made tea set is a Christmas gift any grandmother will like. You can find a set of tea cups and saucers that match her kitchen and dinnerware. Or pair a fine ceramic teapot with a hammered copper kettle for a gift she’ll use again and again.


Gardening Gifts for Grandma Green Thumbs

If your grandma has a green thumb, get her a Christmas present to enhance her time spent out in her garden. A gardening stool gives her gorgeous outdoor seating to use while she prunes the rose bushes or relaxes with a glass of lemonade. You could also replace her old gardening tools with a new set this Christmas. Give a matching set with trowel, rake, shears, and gloves for a complete garden gift. She won’t be able to wait for spring to bury tulip bulbs and sow radish seeds.


Cookware Sets for Future Feasts

If there’s always something special cooking in your grandma’s kitchen, maybe it’s time she gets a new cookware set. For Christmas this year, give her enough pots, pans, and lids to replace all her worn out cookware. Enamel pots and pans come in appealing colors and offer even heat distribution, which makes enamel an ideal material for effective cookware that can double as serveware. On the other hand, you can’t go wrong with a set of shining stainless steel pots and pans if your grandma likes her kitchen classic and sleek.


Photo Frames to Treasure Grandkids

Help your grandma cherish the fun times you’ve shared with sentimental pictures in beautiful picture frames. From single frames to sets of several coordinating frames, you can choose how many memories to put on display. Help your grandma reminisce with a frame that matches the memory. You could pick a distressed wood frame for pictures of the little ones building sand castles at the beach, or go for a rustic frame for the photo taken at the ski lodge. Whichever frame you give, your grandma will be pleased to show off photos of her grandkids throughout her home.


Throw Pillows for Her Cozy Couch

If your grandma likes to keep things fresh in the living room, give her a gift that can spruce up her sofa and recliner. Throw pillows add a pop of color and personality to the living room, and they provide extra lumbar support for lounging on the couch. Whether you pick out subtle red-and-white plaids or playful polar bears and penguins, your grandma will appreciate your thoughtful gift.


Fancy Bakeware for Birthday Cakes

From fruit cakes and chocolate babka to gingerbread cookies with impeccable icing details, she’s mastered the art of baking. This Christmas, give your grandma a specialty baking dish that she can use for the next holiday get together. A Bundt tin with fluted sides will lead to elegant tea cakes, while a silicone cake pop mold indulges in simple pleasures for the grandkids. To really impress, share a photo of you and grandma baking together for a gift she’ll treasure for years to come.
