A personalized birthday gift is a great way to show that you care about your grandmother, her preferences and her special day. There are a lot of options available nowadays, so if you're looking for a personalized gift for grandma, there is something out there for every budget.
People often get their grandma something for her birthday to show how she is more than just the kids' grandma. A personalized gift is a perfect way to show your appreciation and love for your grandma. Here are some gift ideas that any grandma would love to receive:
Grandmothers often have a lot of jewelry. It might be from pieces they’ve purchased over the years, items they have inherited or were gifted. Regardless of where it came from, there is certainly a need for a place to store their jewelry and protect it. A jewelry box can not only protect and store jewelry, but a nice jewelry box can even become part of the décor of a bedroom or bathroom, becoming a centerpiece even. There are many choices in jewelry boxes that can be personalized. Consider first the classic heart shaped jewelry box. Grandma will love the simple, yet elegant and meaningful shape that will be the perfect place to store her most prized pieces of jewelry. There are also other shapes you can choose from, including round, oval, rectangle and others. Most can be personalized with engraving of her name or initials, or even some wording like scripture or a poem on the inside. Every time grandma opens up her jewelry box, she’ll be thinking of you! That also makes a jewelry box a wonderful gift that a family can give grandma for her birthday.
Grandmothers love wearing jewelry given to them by their kids or grandkids. A bracelet can be the perfect item to give her. A bracelet is easy to size, usually either adjustable or one size fits all, but also can be quite inexpensive. There are thousands of styles to choose from and they all have ample room for engraving of her name. Often you can also engrave a message on the inside of the bracelet as well. From chain bracelets to cuff bracelets to textile, silicone, leather and even sterling silver, with different styles and themes, you’re sure to find one that is perfect for that special grandmother.
A locket is a piece of jewelry many grandmas wear. It is simply a necklace with a pendant. The pendant is the actual locket. The pendant is flat, yet thick enough to have hinges on the side which open to reveal a small picture and often engraving as well. The outside can also include engraving, such as a name or initials. A locket is the perfect gift for remembrance, such as to house the picture of a person she lost, or even a beloved pet. By placing their picture in the locket, grandma can keep them close to her heart when she is wearing it. There are different styles available too, including the classic heart shaped locket, but also shapes like an oval, circle or even a book.
There are many other styles of necklace grandma would love to receive too. One very popular style of necklace that is a fun birthday gift is a name necklace. This is simply a necklace that has a pendant which features their name, or even just “Grandma”. The name can be engraved on a pendant, like a tag or dog tag or a bar. Often you can include other symbols on the pendant, like hearts or other shapes. There is also a necklace that features a pendant which is actually metal that is shaped into a name.
Most grandmothers take some sort of medication these days, so a personalized pill box might just be the ideal gift for your grandma. This is simply a small box designed to open on the top and is lined inside with a soft material. It is specifically designed to hold pills of different shapes and sizes. If grandma doesn’t take any medication, she can also use it for her vitamins, gum or even candy. Most are made of stainless steel and have a soft velvet-like lining. Some even have dividers to keep different pills separated. A personalized pill box can be engraved with her name or initials, or even just “Grandma”.
Grandma probably enjoys her tea or coffee, or maybe even hot chocolate. A nice gift for her would be a personalized coffee mug, which features a photo of something treasured or important to her, like her kids or grandkids. Or it can feature a place she loves. Or perhaps she enjoys drinking wine? There are many gifts that can be personalized from this niche, including wine glasses and wine accessories. Or maybe she enjoys something stronger, like hard alcohol? There are also personalized beer steins, shot glasses and even coasters. Another idea would be a personalized flask. A flask is a container, usually meant for hard liquors, which is flat in shape. It is made to carry around in your pocket or purse. There are some that have a more feminine style or include a cover in a feminine shade of color. These are great for grandma to enjoy a drink while she is out and about, or maybe on the putting green.
One particularly wonderful idea for a gift for grandma’s birthday is medical ID jewelry. This is simply jewelry that features pertinent medical information about her. This would be quite valuable in the event of an accident, medical emergency or even if she just becomes lost or confused. It would feature things like her blood type, allergies, conditions and emergency contact information. Usually available in either a necklace or bracelet, there are many different styles of medical ID jewelry available. You’re sure to find one that fits her personality. This type of jewelry is an ideal gift since it can look stylish, but also serves a purpose, and might even save her life one day!
