Make It Personal

It’s the thought that counts, so put a little thought into this Mother’s Day gift for grandma. Give your grandmother a sentimental gift like a framed photo, for example. Round up the family and have a professional photographer take a family portrait of all of the grandkids and children. You could even consider making a sign that reads “We Love You” or “Happy Mother’s Day” prior to the photoshoot to hold up in the pictures. After the photos are printed have the best photo professionally framed, that way she can cherish it and hang it on the wall. This gift can be easily recreated each year, or every couple of years. Grandma will love to see how her family grows over the years.

Be sure to attach a signed card to this gift and make certain that all of the grandkids include a personal note and signature. Big families can add a touch of humor to Mother’s Day by giving grandma an oversized card. GiganticCards.com offers custom cards that can be custom-made to fit any occasion, including Mother’s Day. Surely, all of the grandkids’ special messages will fit on one of gigantic cards.

Give Her Something Sweet

She’s been baking for the entire family for decades from holiday get-togethers to everyday treats, she really knows her way around the kitchen. This Mother’s Day, surprise grandma with something sweet. The online flower delivery service, FTD, not only offers beautiful bouquets, you can choose to send your nana a special gourmet gift basket filled with sweet treats, too.

By choosing to have a gift basket delivered, you can rest assured that your Mother’s Day gift basket will be received, even if you live in southern California and your grandma resides in Florida.
