Mother's Day gifts for Grandma
It’s not often that we get a chance to spoil our nannas and grandmothers. Mother's Day this year (which will fall on Sunday, the 14th of May, 2023) is the perfect time to do just that.
Your grandma has always been there for you to offer unconditional love and great advice through all your ups and downs. Show her how much you appreciate the years of support (and all those cookies!) by getting her a thoughtful gift.
At The Hamper Emporium, we believe that a luxury hamper is the best Mother's Day gift for Grandma. Hampers are the perfect way to celebrate – they have gourmet goodies, self-care items, and gorgeous homewares that Grandma will adore.
The Hamper Emporium has a ton of gifts that Grandmas love. We've got a range of great Mother's Day gift ideas for Nana – a bottle of gin never goes astray, nor does a selection of the finest Australian nibbles and snacks.
FAQs about Mother's Day gifts for Grandmas
Have you got a question about Mother's Day ideas for Grandma? We've answered your top questions below.
Do you buy your Grandma a Mother's Day gift?
She may be older and wiser than your Mum, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to be pampered! She’s dedicated her life to making your family what it is today. So, it's only natural to reward her efforts with a great gift.
If your parents are already getting your Grandma a lovely present, we recommend getting her something small with a personal touch. Whether it's a hamper or an item related to her favourite hobby, she'll appreciate it for sure!
Is Mother's Day for grandmothers, too?
Mother's Day is a celebration of all the mothers in your life – Mums, step-Mums, adoptive Mums, grandmas, and even great-grandmas! So yes, Mother's Day is also for Grandma.
What to make Grandma for Mother's Day?
If you're looking to make something for Grandma, we recommend putting together a hamper. Hampers are great gifts for Grandma because they give her a range of awesome pressies to enjoy. She would also never think to buy most of the items in a hamper for herself, so you're exposing her to amazing goodies that she'll love.
Great items to put in a hamper include body lotion, garden tools, gourmet food, scented candles, homewares, tea, and sweet treats.
If you don't want to put together your own hamper, The Hamper Emporium has a fantastic range of hampers for grandmas.
What should I get my Grandma for Mother's Day at the last minute?
If you need a last-minute gift idea in a pinch, we recommend a gift voucher for The Hamper Emporium. We offer gift vouchers from $50 to $1,000.
With a gift voucher, Grandma can choose her own Mother's Day present. This ensures she gets something on her big day and a Mother's Day gift that she truly wants.
Every grandmother is different! So, we have options that include delicious savoury snacks and sweet treats, gourmet chocolates, hampers with wine, pampering gifts, perfume and skincare products, and celebration hampers with champagne. Grandma is sure to find her perfect gourmet hamper in no time.
With plenty of Mother's Day hampers to enjoy, The Hamper Emporium makes Mother's Day shopping much easier.
What should I get my 70-year-old mother for Mother's Day?
Older ladies will love our Time For Tea Hamper. It includes organic English Breakfast tea from The Cove Jervis Bay, a timeless white Robert Gordon Mug, a Mulberry silk eye mask, French vanilla almonds, and a bath soak that smells delightful.
Or, if Mum prefers gourmet goodies, she'll adore the Luxury Cheese and Chocolate Hamper. This hamper is truly one of the best Mother's Day gifts money can buy. It includes three types of cheese, two pastes, two sweet chocolate treats, wafers, and a cooler bag – all from Maggie Beer.
What do you give a first-time Grandma on Mother's Day?
Her first Mother's Day as a 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 very special to celebrate the milestone.
A gift hamper that includes a bottle of exquisite champagne or premium wine from one of Australia's best wineries is a great way to celebrate as a family and toast to the new generation. Assuming your grandma will share, of course … she might want that bottle of wine all to herself!
We recommend the Moët Celebration Hamper or the Veuve Celebration Hamper. These hampers come with a delectable selection of sweet nuts, elegant stemless champagne glasses, and a premium bottle of either Moët and Chandon champagne or Veuve Clicquot.
Make sure you add a personal touch to her Mother's Day gift basket by including a message in the free card! She is sure to appreciate it.
What should you give an expectant grandma for Mother's Day?
Mother's Day gifts for expecting grandmas celebrate the fact that she's counting down to the birth of her first grandchild. Little milestones like these make life worth living, and her first Mothers Day as a grandma is one she'll remember forever.
We recommend giving her a luxury hamper and spending quality time with her. We recommend two hampers for expectant grandmothers in particular – the Complete Cheeseboard Hamper with Shiraz and the White Wine and Nibbles Hamper. Both these hampers have everything she needs to celebrate in style – delicious nuts, gourmet goodies, and artisan wine.
What can you get a Grandma who doesn't like flowers?
If you're looking for a Mother's Day gift for grandma that's not flowers, a foodie hamper is one of our top Mother's Day present ideas. In particular, we recommend the Gourmet Nibbles Hamper. Packed with gourmet nuts, olive oil, crackers, tapenades, olives, and more, this hamper creates an unforgettable grazing experience.
To make sure your hamper is a Mother's Day gift with a personal touch, make sure you add a sweet message to her card. Words of thanks and affirmation are underrated Mothers Day gifts.
What to get the grandma who has everything?
Shopping for Mother's Day pressies is already tough, but what do you give your grandma when she already has everything she needs? Grandparents are often busy downsizing and decluttering, so she might not want a lot of homewares or self-care stuff. If that's the case, you can't go wrong with a gift basket of edible goodies.
Grandmas with a small appetite will love the Chandon with Australian Sweets and Nuts Hamper. Grandmas who love to entertain will likely prefer the Complete Cheeseboard Hamper with Moët.
What are some Mother's Day morning ideas?
Breakfast in bed is the classic Mother's Day morning activity – but it's not the only way to celebrate! A brisk morning walk, arts and crafts, a family movie, a gourmet grazing brunch, and a morning champagne toast are all wonderful ways to spend Mother's Day morning. If your family is lucky enough to be celebrating three generations, a visit to great-grandma is also in order!
The perfect gift should also be part of the big day. The Hamper Emporium has a wide 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 and her grandchildren love her on this day and always.
