A Handmade Gift or Personalized Keepsake for Grandma Anytime


Maybe you need a great idea for a Christmas gift for grandma (after all, she's given you so many of those delicious family recipes). Maybe you just haven't seen her in a while and are tired of the options on Amazon or Etsy. Why not take it one step further and use a subscription box to make grandma a gift she will treasure, something personalized and truly unique? Grandma and you could try one of these craft kits together. Or if grandma has always been interested in art, she could try her hand at one of these DIY subscription boxes or subscription boxes for arts and crafts (knitting, anyone?).

If grandma is into self-care and wellness, she can DIY her own bath or essential oil scent experience with an aromatherapy subscription box ! No matter what you decide, considering gifting grandma with something that will be truly her own. At her stage in life, she may be looking more for meaning than simply more things . A customizable, personalized gift or something handmade can bridge that desire beautifully!

Best Gifts For Grandma on Mother's Day


Let's not forget the basics, either: Grandma is the original mother, and is well worth honoring on Mother's Day, too. You could start with a classic picture frame, a sentimental gift sure to make her feel loved by the whole family. If she loves to scrapbook , you could get her a gift subscription box to help keep her in stocked in supplies all year long. All of these are just the start of great subscription gift ideas for grandma .

The key is to think about what grandma might need—or want. Maybe her sewing station needs a little extra supplies. Maybe she's more of a gift set kind of grandma, needing to be pampered. Maybe she's a grandma who loves practical gifts—or maybe she's the kind that would love to get a picture of her dog sewn into a pillowcase or tote. If you start with who grandma is, you'll be sure to make her happy with your gift!

Oh, and one more reminder: don't forget about brand-new grandmas, either! Just because she hasn't been a grandma for long doesn't mean she isn't in need of recognition for all of her support and love. She's as comfy with her new grandkids as she once was with you, which means a sentimental gift thanking her and marking the occasion might just be in order.
