To do this, think outside the box, by purchasing items that are practical, but also unique. For example, a customized apron with a sweet message across the front makes for a practical and unique gift for grandma that she can use each time she bakes. Think about items that may need replacing, like mixing bowls with a fun design or customized oven mitts. You could also gift a cookbook or baking book along with this gift to inspire new recipes. Since Mother’s Day falls in the spring, gardening tools and yard decor make for a very timely and useful gift for grandmas. Whether your grandma enjoys tinkering around in her yard, planting flowers each year, or tends to a full vegetable garden, outdoor working tools make for a great gift. 10 AMAZON FINDS THAT CAN HELP YOU BUILD A GARDEN NO MATTER HOW SMALL YOUR SPACEThere are so many different options to gift, from classic tools like gardening shears, watering cans and shovels, to more on the side of decor, with things like statues, bird feeders and beautiful outdoor lights. If your grandma can spend hours curled up with a good book, use that as inspiration for your Mother’s Day gift. This book-themed gift can include a copy of a novel, of course, but also a small throw blanket for her to use while she reads, bookends for organization, or maybe even a new pair of reading glasses. A notebook and pens are also a great addition to this themed gift, so she can write down her thoughts as she works her way through the new book. Many people start their morning with a hot (or iced) cup of Joe.
