Finding the best gifts for Grandma is easier than you think. We chatted with experts to narrow down the stuff Grams actually wants, ranging from useful kitchen gear to stylish accessories. If you still need more gift ideas for Grandma, be sure to check out our list of clever stocking stuffers for moms and nanas.
"Choose items that you know Grandma will actually use or is too frugal to treat herself to," says Clarissa Larkley, a gift basket specialist in New York. "Focus on cozy essentials like robes, slippers and gorgeous kitchen mugs she'll really use each day."
And remember to treat her to something she may not be willing to spend on for herself. "Grandmas often get so caught up in taking care of everyone else that they forget to treat themselves. Cashmere scarves, name brand lounge clothing and high-end home spa products are treats she may not spend on, but will very much make her day."
If you're thinking of wearable items, make sure they're machine washable. Family photo gifts and hand creams are always easy wins, too.
