Mother’s Day gift ideas for grandma


Every grandma deserves to be showered with love this Mother’s Day!

Show your grandmother how much you appreciate her with thoughtful gift – Mother’s Day is May 12!

Whether you are looking for a unique gift or something creative, Heritage Woods of Minooka offers these gift ideas to make grandma feel extra special on Mother’s Day.

1. The sentimental grandmother

Look for a personalized gift, like a custom picture frame or a necklace with the initials of her grandchildren – or great grandchildren - to wear with pride. Charm bracelets can show off her favorite things like hobbies, travel or pets.

2. For the home

Consider a useful accent piece, small appliance or kitchen gadget that won’t add more clutter. Candles, tea infuser or an herb mill and grinder are great options for the home. Get creative with succulent plant assortment.

3. Pamper your grandma

Give her a facial in a box – pick up a hydrating beauty gift set. Hand cream, bath oil or an Epsom foot soak will offer her some much-needed relaxation!

4. For the bookworm

Check out the latest tablets and E-Readers that offer displays that are easy on the eyes or allows for enlarged font sizes. The battery lasts for weeks and it’s lighter than most smartphones. You can store over 1,000 books at a time, and many options don’t break the bank. Keep it budget-friendly by browsing the bestseller shelf and pickup a paperback.

5. The tech-savvy grandma

Smart speakers give your mom the option to have her own personal assistant service! A charging stand lets her chat hands-free at home. Look for a fitness tracker smart watch that also monitors blood pressure and heart rate.

Need a last-minute gift idea? Grab a gift card to her favorite coffee shop or pick up some flowers in her favorite color!
