A subscription to the biggest book club in the country
- Book of the Month Instagram
Book of the Month offers five new book choices a month, and they’re always all top-quality picks. The biggest struggle of being a Book of the Month member is deciding which one to read.
A pair of new glasses
Give her a gift card from this affordable and stylish glasses brand so she can pick out a new pair of frames for herself. Frames start at less than $10 and after she enters her prescription info online, they’ll be on their way straight to her front door.
A set of quirky tea towels
- West Elm
Tea towels don’t have to be boring. These accessorized animals will give her a laugh and let her identify the towels in a crowded kitchen in a snap.
The next-in-command cookware after her trusty cast iron
- Made In Cookware
No way is she going to part with the cast-iron pan that’s been passed down through generations. The carbon-steel pan is like a close cousin that will never directly replace the classic cast iron. With its heat control and cooking speed, it comes in handy when she’s cooking in a rush, and it’s lighter to hold, too.
A pillow that provides back support whenever she needs it
Purple Cushions feature the same Hyper-Elastic Polymer material used in its supportive, adaptive mattresses, so she can be comfortable whether sitting in a car, plane, or stadium. Unlike other pillows that might simply absorb weight, this one provides active support.
A fun and convenient way to freshen up her wardrobe
- Rent the Runway
It’s natural to settle into a dressing routine, but if you sense that she’s no longer excited by her closet, a Rent the Runway membership is the perfect solution. She can try out different brands and styles that she wouldn’t ordinarily buy, and it’s easy to return pieces with the provided prepaid shipping labels.
A customizable gift box
Choose a cute box design, personalize it with photos and a message, and and fill it with a small gift like candy or a candle to surprise the grandma who insists she already has everything she wants for Mother’s Day.
A luxury candle made from the scent suppliers behind Le Labo and Tom Ford
The same candle from a name brand might cost twice as much, but we all know Grandma would never want you spending that much on a single candle. Italic provides a reasonably priced alternative that’s still sophisticated and formulated with sustainable ingredients. Choose from soothing scents like Black Pomegranate Rose and Palo Santo Cedar.
A comfortable slip-on shoe
The soft, cushioned, and lightweight Loungers are made for the grandma who’s always on her feet and needs to be comfortable.
A versatile, thoughtfully designed bag
- Lo and Sons
A common problem – finding a bag that didn’t hurt her back – inspired the founding of travel bag company Lo & Sons, so you know these totes will be comfortable for your grandma to carry. The canvas bag has a bunch of different organizational features, including a bottom pocket just for shoes and an expandable main compartment.
A triangle coin purse
- Cuyana Facebook
The distinctive shape is easy to spot and feel in a purse, while the tiny size is made for spare change, earrings, and other small knickknacks. Make it personal by adding a monogram for an additional $15.
A subscription-free way to watch live TV
So you’ve convinced her to cut the cord, but she might still miss watching her favorite daytime shows as they happen. Amazon’s Fire TV Recast works with an HD antenna and Fire TV device to bring her live shows and events without the commitment of monthly fees.
Prints of your favorite moments together, and the pretty stand to display them
- Artifact Uprising Instagram
The sleek brass display is a little different from the usual photo frame, and it weathers nicely over time. The set includes 12 prints, printed on a weighty, matte paper.
A way to keep track of all the states she’s traveled to
Chances are your grandma has already seen much of the country. She’ll be able to feature the memories and experiences with this photo map.
A warm burst of pink and red flowers
- Urban Stems
If all else fails, a flower bouquet is a gift that stands the test of time. Make sure to place your order of these roses, lilies, and carnations early to ensure availability and timely delivery.
A chestnut-themed gift set that feels all too appropriate for the holidays
These treats aren’t as sweet, nor as predictable, as the traditional gift of chocolate. There are glazed chestnuts with a hint of vanilla, a chestnut cream to spread over crackers, and a tin of fruit-infused black tea.
A subtle, personal necklace
No need to get excessive or gimmicky with the Grandma gear – pretty and simple conveys thoughtfulness even better, in our opinion.
Fitbit’s latest fitness tracker
- Fitbit Instagram
This new tracker is more affordable than Fitbit’s other models, but still gives her all the necessary info to keep tabs on her fitness and health. She can monitor her calorie burn, heart rate, sleep patterns, walking and biking activity, and other important stats.
A lottery ticket that gives back
- Lotto Love
LottoLove turns playing the lottery into a charitable act: When you buy a card, LottoLove donates to charities that help people receive clean water, solar light, nutritious meals, and literacy tools. She’ll scratch off the stickers to find out which cause she has supported.
A better designed set of baking tools
GIR’s stronger, more flexible, and heat-resistant spatulas will make Grandma’s baking prep a breeze (which means you won’t have to wait as long for her famous cookies to be ready).
A classic cashmere sweater with half the carbon footprint
The simple joy of a soft and cozy sweater can never be understated. Everlane’s take on the winter essential is doubly impressive because it’s made from recycled cashmere. We won’t blame you if you want to pick up a matching sweater for yourself.
A journal to record her life story
- Uncommon Goods
You know that Grandma has an arsenal of entertaining stories and life wisdom up her sleeve. The best way to ensure they’re preserved and passed on to future generations is this journal that contains prompts ranging from the specific (“TV shows I watched while in school” to the nebulous (“Some thoughts on love and marriage”).
A travel mug that lets her make tea anywhere
A grandmother without her tea is not one you want to cross. This insulated travel mug contains a micro-filter so she can steep and sip her Earl Grey whenever she wants.
A handmade stoneware sewing station
- Uncommon Goods
Plastic sewing supply storage boxes may work, but this sturdy clay sewing station will actually get her excited to sit down with her tools.
