1. Subscription boxes!


Seniors love receiving mail. Subscription boxes are a unique way to send fun gifts curated especially for them and their interests. Some of our favorites are GrandBox (family photos & gifts for seniors), Try the World (food items from around the world), and Bark Box (for dog owners).

2. Games!

Whether it be a classic game like checkers, something newer like Bananagrams, or just a good old deck of cards, games are a fun way to bond, create memories, and start new traditions.

3. Refrigerator magnets and notepads.

Grandmothers love hanging grandkids’ drawings and photos on the fridge. Nowadays there’s no shortage of neat fridge magnets and notepads to jazz up the front of the fridge.

5. Volunteer together

What better way to develop a deeper relationship with Grandma than volunteering together on a project that’s important to the both of you.

6. Memory book or Gratitude journal

No matter what age they are, memory books and gratitude journals are the perfect way for Grandma to share and pass down her earliest memories and most important life experiences.

8. Create a family photo collage

Grandparents and especially Grandmas love family photos. Creating a collection of your favorite photos is a wonderful gift you can edit yourself online.

9. Magazines

Magazine subscriptions are a great gift for Grandmas who love reading, news, and inspiration. For the reader send The New Yorker. For nostalgia, Reminisce. For inspiration, O, The Oprah Magazine. And for the political minded, The Week.

10. Spending time together

Simply sharing time with your grandmother on Mother’s Day is the most irreplaceable and important gift you can give them. So whether you give them one of our recommended fun gifts or not, make sure to call or visit Grandma this Mother’s Day.
