Check out these 85 best gifts for grandma that will warm her heart!

Best Overall Gifts for Grandma
This circular brush gives you a salon blowout without the salon. It has thousands of great ratings stating that the quality is fantastic.
Grandma most likely likes to curl her hair, and this will help blow it out to create the perfect shine.
The most practical gift on this list is the Fitbit. The Fitbit tracks heart rate, steps, temperature, etc. It’s a great way to set fitness goals and maintain them. The Fitbit is also easy to use for those who aren’t as good with technology, according to reviewers.
Feel a buzz when you reach your desired heart rate zones while exercising with Active Zone Minutes, and rejoice when you accumulate extra minutes when you're not exercising.
To keep active, sleep well, and manage stress, try the Fitbit Premium for a free 90-day trial. Access everything in the Fitbit app. (A valid payment method is required. To avoid paying subscription fees, cancel before the free trial expires. Offer only valid for brand-new Premium users.
Food is something that will transcend generations. My grandma used to make dishes her parents made, and their parents before that.
While I have a handful of recipes written down, I would give an arm to have a whole book of them.
Sit down with Grandma and have her fill it! Save your tradition and culture for future generations by buying this book.
Practical Gifts for Grandma
One side is a decoration engraved with “Grandma’s Kitchen: Where Great Meals, Sweet Treats, & Loving Memories Are Made,” and the other is a bamboo cutting board.
This board is great to be hung as a decoration, and taken down so Grandma can make sweet treats!
Older women have lots of foot problems. When they come to my shoe store, most tell me 3 things: they need a slip-on and/or non-slip, they have wide feet, and they need a nice arch.
These slippers are terry cloth, so they can be worn inside and outside. They are also machine washable.
They have arch support, a non-slip sole (and a back lip to keep the foot in), and come in many sizes – perfect for Grandma.
7. New Balance
When an older woman asks me for comfortable shoes, I automatically point her to the New Balance.
These are the universal comfort shoes. They have arch support, and they’re non-slip and wide-width.
Many reviewers cite this shoe as perfect for people with orthopedic problems and arthritis.
This simple bike has adjustable resistance, and a small LED screen to track calories. This is great for those who have office jobs or those with disabilities.
Many reviewers said they bought the bike for their elderly parents, to their satisfaction.
10. Electric Kettle
An electric kettle makes boiling water for tea easier. What makes this kettle superior is its safety features.
It has a blue light that alerts the user that it’s on. It also automatically turns off when it’s done boiling, so it doesn’t spread everywhere if Grandma forgets.
11. Fuzzy Socks
These Dr. Scholl’s socks are comfortable, but they also have little sticky tabs on the bottom so the wearer doesn’t slip.
12. Mop Shoe Covers
These shoe covers require no work. Grandma simply has to walk around the house with these on, and they will clean the floors for her!
13. Docking Station
I always get home and dump my pockets out on my bed. That mess can be avoided with this incredible wooden organizer.
It has a phone charging station for your smartphones and a hook to hold watches, as well as little compartments for other objects such as glasses and wallets.
It is one of the most useful gifts you can guy for that special person in your life.
Gardeners will love this! It has the main tote for random storage, as well as tools in the compartments on the outside. It comes with a bag, tools, a spray bottle, and gloves.
This silicone tea infuser is really cute, and it does the job! It makes it easier for those who don’t use bags and only tea leaves.
Personalized Gifts for Grandma
16. Ancestry DNA Kit
This is something I wish I had done with my grandma. I’ve taken a DNA test, but older people will gain more insight because they have a closer connection to the places their families immigrated from.
Older people will also have more DNA matches in the system. This is great for a grandparent who has no knowledge of their ethnic heritage, and it’s also interesting for family insight on nationality and even health assessment.
This rustic wooden photo display is a simple gift to personalize. Grandma will always have pictures of the kids on her fridge, or on the wall.
This gift will make it easier to hang them, and you can give her pictures to personalize them!
18. Birthday Tracker
When I was 10, I had my grandma fill out a book similar to this one.
She didn’t remember much, but her answers were a way for me to know the family history a little better.
Ask your grandparents everything while you still have time! Reviewers said the prompts were very helpful in getting the full picture and starting a conversation.
This silver necklace is extremely classy compared to other cheesy gifts. It can have up to 20 names engraved on it. Reviewers said their grandmothers loved it!
My grandma had a ring with a birthstone for each of her eight kids.
This is a great alternative to gifts that only include names and dates, and it can make for a classy piece of jewelry. This can also be a future heirloom!
This necklace has one charm engraved with the year your grandmother became a mother, and another with the year she became a grandmother. It’s a simple gift that means a lot.
23. A locket
This brass locket is absolutely beautiful. It has an intricate floral design on the front, and a little initial charm above it. You can gift it with a little picture inside once you receive it!
24. Throw Blanket
Reviewers commended the seller for working with them so closely. This blanket will be made with love and given with love. It will be printed with several pictures of grandkids or other family members on it, and it can be displayed in the living room for guests to see.

25. Burlap Art
A grandma’s love knows no distance. This customizable burlap art will include the location of you and your grandmother.
Not everyone has their grandmother close to them, and this gift acknowledges the love you feel from far away.
Luxury Gifts for Grandma
26. Heated Massager
Grandma is more likely to have sore muscles than anyone else. This massager is equivalent to a professional massage or even a chiropractor visit, according to reviews.
Some say the straps are awkward, but they help the massagers hit the spot. The price also can’t be beaten.
27. Foot Massager
This machine increases blood circulation with its heat technology. It is best for those with plantar fasciitis, and those with diabetes.
It can also be adjusted for the leg muscles. Reviewers said that the massager was so strong that it solved pain that had lasted for years!
28. Coach Bag
30. Coach Glasses
The website describes these shoes as feeling like comfy socks. Reviewers agreed! These running shoes are also cheaper than most others, clocking in at 100 dollars.
The style is simple enough that even the pickiest of grandmas would like them.
33. Coach Wallet
34. J.Crew Wool Coat
A wool coat keeps the body warm, but also provides style. This Italian-style coat has a tailored look that almost seems vintage.
35. J.Crew Blazer
A classic blazer can be a luxury. This blazer is made with Italian wool and has a classic plaid pattern. This is perfect for when Grandma wants to get fancy.
Last-Minute Gifts for Grandma
This 30-ounce stainless steel mug is perfect for a cup of coffee, or late-night wine. It’s a simple gift to get at the last minute, and it’s fancier than a typical coffee cup.
Take a quick trip to the Sephora at the mall and buy Grandma this lipstick (probably in classic red!).
Until she died, my grandma wore red lipstick every single day. This matte lipstick has a bright hue and glides on smoothly.
It also comes in a multitude of colors to match every skin tone.
We bought my grandma new underwear every year, and she always liked it because she never had to buy her own. While you're ordering your last-minute Amazon haul, add this to your cart. This underwear brand is deemed comfortable by many reviewers!
A low-costing perfume can go a long way. This vanilla sugar body spray doesn't have an overpowering scent, but it gets the job done. This is especially great for the grandmas who constantly reapply throughout the day.
42. Nail Polish
Essie nail polish lasts forever and provides bright colors. Buy a classic red for your grandmother and she will love it!
43. Some Snacks
My grandma loved everything from Entenmanns. Buy some simple donuts she can have with her morning coffee. It’s simple, but she will appreciate it.
44. A Cute Bag
Christmas Gifts for Grandma
My family used to buy matching pajamas for everyone, including Grandma, and we took an annual Christmas picture wearing them.
These pajamas are simple and cute, and they come in multiple sizes. Reviews say that buying pajamas true-to-size for every family member was successful, and created nice memories.
I would recommend this moisturizer to everyone. It can be applied to any skin, and it doesn’t have any irritating fragrance.
I have dry skin, and it does wonders for it. Grandma definitely needs to stay moisturized, and this is the perfect cream to do so!
48. Cashmere Sweater
This crewneck sweater is a J.Crew bestseller. It’s a simple design, but it’s high quality and comes in 17 colors. Cashmere will keep Grandma warm and she’ll look nice as well!
This book contains envelopes with prompts on the front for grandparents to answer. They can be saved for a specific time in the child’s life.
It’s a simple concept, but it will create touching memories in the future.
50. Paint by Numbers
Painting is a relaxing activity that also enhances cognitive ability. These are beautiful paintings of the woods or the mountains that can be hung up afterward. They can take a couple of weeks to complete – painting these can become a regular activity for the retiree! This package includes 2 high quality pre-printed line canvas (without frame), 4 sets brushes (12pcs) , 2 reference card, 2 paint map, 2 set of highlight non-toxic acrylic paints,4 hooks,2 instructions.

When researching this item, many recommended Tile. However, many customers complained about Tile requiring an app, and also the aspect of needing an internet connection.
This product doesn’t require either of those. It simply makes a noise when Grandma misplaces her keys, so she can find them easier.
This is great because it doesn’t require a smartphone, in the case that your grandma doesn’t have one.
55. Boot Slippers
While I have already recommended slippers, boot slippers are for more frequent use, especially during winter.
These can be worn outside the house because they have non-slip soles. They keep feet warm like a typical slipper, but the height creates the functionality of a boot.
My grandma had these in assisted living and they worked perfectly!
56. Compact Mirror
Grandma needs a mirror to check her hair and makeup. This mirror from Etsy is so cute! It’s embroidered with lots of hand-crafted floral designs that were clearly made with love.
It has the flair vintage mirrors used to have, and Grandma will love it!
57. Keepsake Box
This trinket box is handcrafted with a message of love. The lid depicts a woman with a baby. It can hold the jewelry Grandma wears every day, or even hearing aids.
58. Silk Pillowcase
Silk pillowcases can make Grandma feel luxurious. This one also helps prevent wrinkles and keeps hair hydrated.
59. Oil Diffuser
Grandma doesn’t always need a fancy coat. This Columbia fleece jacket is warm and simple.
It has a high collar that will her warm, but that can also be folded down to make a fashion statement.
It’s good for a quick run to the supermarket, or to visit the grandkids.
Grandma will be going back in time with this gift. Make sure to get her started with some records too! Many thrift or record stores still carry old records.
This gift saves tons of space, because it doesn’t require an entire rack of dumbbells. It comes with the original dumbbell bar, which you can adjust to make it heavier.
63. Texting Gloves
These gloves are warm and also work on a phone! With these, Grandma won’t have to let her hands freeze when you call her.
64. Fleece Blanket
My grandma was always freezing cold. This throw blanket is perfect for lounging in the house.
One side is sherpa, and the other is fleece. The fleece is more for general comfort, and the sherpa is for those cold nights.
65. Recipe Box
This vintage-style recipe box is reminiscent of the ones our grandmothers had.
It includes cards to write favorite recipes on, and there are dividers to organize them in the box.
As we grow older, we have our own interests, and we can hold them in this box.
Birthday Gifts for Grandma
This resin stone is a cute decoration for Grandma’s garden. Many reviews state that the stone fits beautifully in their garden and that it’s an object of sentimentality for them.
These classic pearl earrings only cost 11 dollars, but they are of great quality! They create a simple and timeless look that Grandma will love.
Chances are your retiree grew up somewhere cool. These tumblers come in a variety of United States cities. They are handcrafted and etched with sand.
This black and white apron has a vintage style to it. It can be used for regular use or a Halloween costume.
Reviewers said they love the look of it, and it held up over time.
70. Tennis Dress
71. Nike Trench Coat
I personally have a Nike windbreaker, and it fits very nicely.
I think this one would be better for grandmas because it doesn’t look too sporty, but still serves as a great windbreaker.
The All Yours tank top series is specifically created for casual wear and exercise.
It’s made out of soft cotton, and the shirt goes down to the hips. It’s great for a run, and then a stop at the coffee shop.
73. Sports Bra
If Grandma likes to go running with the girls, she needs a good sports bra. It looks and feels great while offering support.
It also comes in multiple colors to choose from. Make sure you check in with her to get the correct sizing, as LuluLemon makes some designs specifically for bigger sizes.
74. iPad Air
A table is a great gift idea for retirees, as they will have lots more time on their hands. They can watch Netflix on it, look up recipes, play games, read, etc.
The familiar premium glass and metal design of the new M1-powered 2021 iPad Pro is retained, but it offers nearly twice the performance of the model from the previous year, which was already unrivaled.
It is arguably the ideal tablet for retirees because it has great speakers, an all-day battery life, and compatibility with a ton of great accessories.
This jewelry box has a minimalist but cute style. It’s a little cube that comes in multiple colors and can hold a lot.
There’s also the option to have Grandma’s name printed on it.
76. Yarn Bowl
This yarn bowl keeps Grandma’s yarn in place while she knits. It’s easily decorative and can be used as storage, too.
78. Wine Tumbler
This insulated wine tumbler is perfect for keeping drinks cool. It can be taken to the beach, a picnic, etc.
This is great for the guys who like to booze it up.
This little kit is great for cocktails on the go.
He can choose from a variety of different cocktails, and each box contains at least 6 drinks!
This Old Fashioned cocktail kit includes real bitters for cocktails, lemon zest, sugar cubes, bar muddler spoon, and a handwoven cocktail napkin.
A custom painting of Grandma’s house would be a heartwarming gift! It’s also a gift that many wouldn’t think to give.
Some Grandmas may have lived in their houses for most of their lives, and it holds many memories.
Having a beautiful painting of it is a reminder for them of the special times they had there.
Simply buying a baking set isn’t enough. This personalized set has engravings on each part of it.
It contains a cutting board, a rolling pin, a spatula, a pastry brush, and a mixing spoon. If Grandma bakes with love, her tools must be made with love as well.
Now the retiree can cook meals for everyone while barely lifting a finger. This 8-quart Crockpot can feed up to 10 people! It can also cook for up to 20 hours, and it really holds the flavors in. My mom has made ribs, stew, stuffed peppers, and more, and they always turn out fantastic.
83. Rose Face Mask
This face mask serves any type of skin. It helps keep Grandma’s skin hydrated.
My grandma was 93, and when she saw me with a face mask, she laughed hysterically.
It would be a fun experience to put it on together, especially if your grandma never heard of such a thing.
84. Body Wash
These natural skin care products are the perfect gift.
Burt’s Bees products are extremely nourishing and moisturizing. With a variety of products to choose from you can’t go wrong!
Whether you want to gift your coworker moisturizer, lip balm, chapstick, soap, or anything in between they are sure to love it!
Anything you give Grandma should be out of love. The bond between a grandmother and her grandchild is infinite, so even the smallest gift should be given with the level of consideration of a bigger gift.
I hope this list helped you find quality gifts that truly show how much love you have for her.
