Nana, grandma, grammy—no matter what you call your beloved grandmother, she deserves a gift that’s as special as she is. To get an idea of what she really wants, we asked the grandmas in our lives to tell us what presents would truly make their day.

Whether she’s an avid gardener, morning walker, TV binger or bookworm—there’s a gift on this list that is perfectly personalized for her. From a fancy stand mixer and a sweater she’s sure to love to a grow-her-own flower kit, here are 60 gifts for grandma (or your mom, if the gift is “from the kids”) that she’ll appreciate and use.

The Top 5 Gifts for Grandma at a Glance

What Is a Good Gift for an Elderly Grandparent?

When shopping for a grandparent, consider their phase of life. Have they recently retired and want to be active? If that’s the case, then gifts like yoga sets, trendy suitcases, portable technology and education subscriptions are sure to be hits.

Perhaps the grandparents in your life are older and mobility is an issue. That makes items such as smart home devices, stationery sets and luxe pajamas good picks since they can be comfortably and easily used at home.

How We Chose the Best Gifts for Grandma

To cull this list, we polled the grandmothers in our lives, asking them about products and services they’d love to receive. Then, we scrupulously researched the available options at our favorite, editor-approved brands, taking into account buyer reviews. We also recommend products that our editors have personally tested, vetted and love.
