Traditional gifts with a sentimental touch are always great hits with grandmothers who still wear aprons to bake cookies and love pottering in the garden. Few people in life are as important and special as a grandmother and the Christmas season is a great time to show your appreciation and love for everything she does for you. But why not surprise grandma with something a little more unusual than flowers, slippers or a warm cardigan this Christmas to demonstrate the special bond that exists between you?
Beautiful collectable figurines in a range that honours grandparents are always meaningful. Eloquent but simple, hand-carved Salisbury pewter pieces symbolize the love between a grandmother and a child. Sculptures communicate through gesture, representing an emotion or marking a memory in quiet ways that comfort, heal, inspire, and protect. This is a lasting gift that will show your grandmother how much you love her.
A Keepsake Journal
Memory books help grandmothers to record and share their special memories with those they love. In this keepsake journal entitled “Grandma, Do You Remember When? Sharing A Lifetime of Loving Memories” by Jim Daly, grandma can record all the cherished moments and happy events that shaped her legacy, guided by questions that encourage her to remember her favourite family stories and what makes her happiest. This hardcover treasury will contain the best gift of all when the hopes and dreams of a generation are passed on to her beloved children and grandchildren. Jim Daly sweetens any grandmothers walk down memory lane with his old-fashioned paintings as the pages are filled with loving memories that include her prayers for her family. This is a gift that keeps on giving as it is passed on from children to grandchildren and greatgrandchildren and is sure to find a spot in grandma’s heart.
A Deluxe Garden Scoot
For grandmothers who love to work in the garden, this gardener’s scoot will work wonders to spare those tricky knees that come with old age. The heavy-duty construction, ten-inch tires and comfortable bucket seat is ideal, not only for gardening but for all those low projects like painting or washing tires in a seated position that is so much easier on the back and the knees. It has a handy handle to pull it along where needed and a bucket basket that can hold tools. Show grandma that you care for her comfort with this convenient and handy gift.
Matching Jewellery for Grandmothers and Granddaughters
Matching bracelets or other pieces of jewellery such as a beautiful brooch are great ways of sharing feelings of love between a grandmother and her granddaughter. Combined with personal engravings of your names, symbols of love in the form of hearts and sparkling stones, and the date, your gift will last a lifetime. And next year you can add another piece to start a stunning coordinated collection.
A Luxurious Hamper
Grandmothers deserve to be pampered and what better way to do that than filling a hamper with luxurious items that will make her feel like a queen. Prepare a gift basket filled with delightful gourmet treats and exquisite fine chocolates from only the best brands. Include a few hand-made treats that you made yourself to add a personal touch and wrap it up in a charming tablecloth that she can use afterwards.
Alternatively, why not fill a gift basket with luxurious toiletries to pamper her from head to toe. Include only the finest quality soaps, lotions, bath salts, and creams, wrapped in silk and tied with a stunning bow. A superbly put together gift basket is always a hit with grandmothers and it lasts for a long time after the Christmas festivities are over.
It is so much fun choosing a Christmas gift for a grandmother that has special and personal meaning. The above suggestions are just some of the wonderful ideas for buying a gift for your grandmother this Christmas that will last for years to come.
