What should I get my grandma for Mother's Day?
You're never too old to enjoy a gift basket packed full of goodies and sweet treats. Mother's Day is the time to spoil Nana rotten just like she did for you all those years. Surprise your nanna with a foodies hamper full of chocolates, nuts, fudge, and candies. Or introduce her to a new wine or award-winning vineyard with a gourmet hamper with wine. If chewy toffee and crunchy nuts are too much for grandma's teeth, give her a gourmet nibbles hamper with shortbread that melts in the mouth, indulgent caramel sauce, or Triple Choc Fudge Cookies (just as good as Grandma makes and without the washing up). Gourmet food hampers without alcohol are a popular choice for a present for grandma from her grandkids.
Maybe your Grandmother loves to write and reflect on life. In that case, gift her with a stunning notebook for her to collect all her thoughts in. We bet Nan has some incredible stories and wisdom to pass on to her much loved grandkids. Give her a place to record it all; it’s sure to be a source of long conversations for many years to come!
Your Grandma wants to be spoiled on her special day just as much as Mum does. Trust us, after years of indulging your family with love and care, it’s time for her to get the same treatment. If Nana loves the finer things in life then gift her with the very best. A bottle of the highest quality champagne never does astray. If she doesn’t fancy bubbles, perhaps a fruity white wine will do the trick. Give her a reason to celebrate with those she loves the most!
If she loves nourishing and taking care of her skin, why not give her a luxurious item she might not find herself? A soothing rose scented hand cream will leave her feeling simply indulgent. If she needs time to unwind, give her a delicious bath soak or a decadent candle. After all, every nana deserves to pamper themselves like a queen!
Is Mother's Day for grandmothers too?
Absolutely! Mother’s Day is for all the incredible matriarchs in your family — the women who have loved and nurtured you throughout your life. We all know to spoil Mum on this marvellous day, but what about our grandmothers? Don’t forget her when this celebration rolls around.
Mother's Day is the time to celebrate all mums. While your priority might be your own mum, grandmothers should definitely be remembered and honoured on Mother's Day. Even if their kids are all grown up with children of their own, grandmas still think of themselves as mothers. If you need to, you can make it a Mother's Day weekend, so there's time to celebrate with all the important mother figures who continue to play an important role in your life.
They say it takes a village to raise a child, so you don’t just have your amazing mum to thank come May. We wouldn’t be where we are today without all the incredible grandmas, nanas, grans, and aunties out there who have nurtured and loved us. Your nanna may have grown up in a different time, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t your best friend and confidante from the very start. The fondness that grandkids share with their grandparents is second to none.
Maybe your nanna attended every Grandparents’ Day at your school with cookies in hand. Perhaps she was there to kiss your sore knees and calm your fears. When your parents weren’t around we know she loved to spoil you. After all, that’s exactly what a grandmother is for! She has watched you grow with pride and devotion. That’s why Grandmas deserve to be pampered this Mother’s Day just like Mum!
If you've got the best nana ever, let her know with a gift on Mother's Day. Long-distance grandmothers might miss out on sharing the usual Mother's Day festivities, so remembering to send a gift is important. Even if you have arranged a gift delivery, your Mother's Day morning plans should include a quick phone call to your grandma to tell her that you love her.
What do you give your first time Grandma on Mother's Day?
Her 1st Mother's Day as grandma is a big occasion. If you're searching for gift ideas for your mum's first Mother's Day as a grandmother, or even for your grandmother's first Mother's Day as a great-grandma, you need to find something special to celebrate the milestone. Mother’s day gifts for expecting grandmas are also a nice touch if she's counting down to the birth of her first grandchild. Little milestones like a first Mothers Day for grandma are so important as her children grow up to have families of their own.
A gift hamper that includes a bottle of exquisite Champagne or premium wine from one of Australia's world-class wineries is a great way to celebrate as a family and toast to the generations. Assuming your grandma will share… she might want that bottle of wine all to herself!
Personalised nanna Mother's Day gifts are also appropriate for a first time grandma. Including a personalised gift card with a sweet poem for grandma's first mother's day is a really lovely gesture sure to either make her smile or bring a sentimental tear to her eye (or both!). Even if you'd prefer to keep your own family celebration a small one with just you, hubby, and the baby, sending a Mother's Day gift basket to your mum or mother-in-law to recognise her first year as a grandma is a kind gesture that she will always remember.
What to get the grandma who has everything?
You want to give a Mother's Day gift for grandma that's not flowers and that she'll actually enjoy. But what do you give your grandma when she already has everything she needs? Grandparents are often busy downsizing and de-cluttering so she might not want a lot of stuff. If that's the case, you can't go wrong with a gift basket of edible goodies.
Forget the idea of shopping for an older woman. Grandmas love to be pampered too! The range of top Mother's Day present ideas are all just as relevant for young-at-heart grandmothers. She'd love a scented bath soak (to ease those tired old muscles!), or some soothing hand cream is just perfect to soften her skin after a hard day in the garden. A foodies hamper with shortbread, vanilla almonds, peanut brittle and gourmet cookies is guaranteed to please your young grandma. If you're lucky, she'll bake something for you in return.
Gourmet tapenades and savoury nibbles might be a big hit for a grandma that loves to entertain friends. And chocolate. Lots of chocolate! Grandma is not watching her weight anymore, so a chocolate hamper will bring a sparkle to her eye. Choose a hamper filled with light and dark chocolates, or perhaps truffles, or choc coated coffee beans, or choc berries, or a chocolate-coated fruit & nut selection… the list is endless!
If you want original ideas for giving grandma a Mother's Day gift with a personal touch, a Mother's Day sweet breakfast treat is a good gift for grandma that you and your kids can prepare for her. If you're able to pop in for a visit, fun Mother's Day morning ideas include arriving with some handpicked flowers and spending some quality time together. Late risers might like breakfast in bed with a cup of tea and some toast spread with a superb tasting gourmet Apricot Conserve made with Armagnac Cognac.
Showing your kids how to plan a Mother's Day brunch to surprise grandma is another great idea. The Hamper Emporium has a range of gourmet foods and artisan biscuits that would all make a wonderful brunch for the family to share with your grandma. She'd love a selection of artisan crackers with gourmet tapenades, honey popcorn, sticky figs, quince paste, and assorted chocolates.
If you think on Mother's Day your grandma would rather relax with some quiet time to herself, she might enjoy a pampering hamper with perfume, body lotion and a snuggly plush dressing gown (you can even get it monogrammed). Homemade gifts for grandma from granddaughter are an especially heartwarming gift. If you're celebrating three generations of strong women, be sure to have your daughter make something special or include her own words on a personalised card.
There's a whole range of amazing gifts to delight the world's best grandma on Mother's Day. Choose something special to let her know how much you love her on this day and always.
