With the holidays fast approaching, you’re likely thinking about how to pick out the perfect gift for everyone on your list, including Grandma. In fact, maybe it’s safe to say, especially Grandma - just think about all of the thoughtful things she’s done for you over the years. Perhaps the Grandma on your gift list isn’t even yours, but we can bet that she’s still got those thoughtful Grandma tendencies we can all appreciate. Whether you’re shopping for your own Grandma, helping your partner find a holiday gift for their Grandma, or working with your younger kiddos to pick out a sweet holiday gift for their Grandma, certain gifts just work for any Grandma on your list.
That’s not to say, of course, that all Grandmas are the same. Sure, some may love relaxing or reading in a comfy chair (who doesn’t?!), while some may prefer crushing it at the driving range or showing off on her jet ski (you never know!). Regardless of her specific hobbies or interests, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect holiday gift for her on the list below (except for a new jet ski, that’s not on here). Read on to find a thoughtful, versatile, and practical gift that’ll be sure to brighten her holiday season this year.
Everyone loves a fresh pair of slippers and grandmas are no exception. Slippers will be an especially thoughtful gift if the Grandma you’re shopping for seems to have had that same pair for forever, and she just hasn’t invested the energy into upgrading to a fresh pair for herself. New slippers can make lounging feel that much better and are practical for keeping her feet warm for the holiday season and beyond.
You can also go with a monogrammed pair of slippers to give this gift an even more thoughtful touch. Opt for a personalized pair with her initials that feels aligned with her style and with super comfy and practical design features like plush faux-fur lining, foam cushioning, and a supportive rubber sole.
Whether the Grandma on your list is a fashionista or just likes to live that cozy life, a winter scarf is a versatile yet thoughtful gift idea for the holiday season. For a perfect cold-weather accessory, opt for a fleece winter scarf in a fun print like caramel leopard print or solid shade like teal or rubellite, depending on her style preferences.
And for the Grandma who likes to keep things oh-so-fancy (we see you, Grandma!) go with a fashion scarf like a flattering belted shawl wrap or a classic and silky soft heather gray plaid blanket scarf that’ll add both warmth and style points to any of her iconic looks.
You truly can’t go wrong with gifting cashmere, so opt for a cloudlike cashmere women’s sweater for any Grandma on your holiday gift list (even the jet skiing Grandma, trust us!). It’s impossible not to appreciate the luxurious, silky-smooth comfort of a cashmere sweater, so this gift inherently feels elevated and perfect for a special occasion.
You’ll want to pick out a cashmere sweater that she’ll want to wear again and again, so be sure to pick a style that fits with her personal preferences, like a cashmere cardigan in a teal or pearl gray heather shade or a thyme heather pull-over cashmere crewneck.
Throw blankets are great holiday gifts for Grandma because they’re versatile, practical, and perfect for the chilly months. Throw blankets are perfect for the Grandma who loves to be cozy in her favorite chair or on the couch, or who takes pride in her home and likes to upgrade her space with decorative touches every so often.
For her new favorite throw, opt for a soft and beautiful velvet throw blanket in a gorgeous ivory shade with a faux fur back or a cashmere-like cash touch throw in a classic deep-sea navy herringbone design.
For the Grandma who loves to golf, look no further than a women’s polo shirt for the perfect holiday gift. This is especially perfect if she lives somewhere like Florida where she can golf year-round, but polo shirts are also versatile and flattering enough for her to wear year ’round with other colder weather outfits (and then, of course, to debut on the driving range when the time comes!).
Opt for a long sleeve mesh polo in her favorite color or a super soft Supima cotton quarter-length sleeve polo in a fun print like paisley floral for a definite holiday gift win.
We hope that one of the gifts on the list is perfect for the Grandma you’re shopping for! After all, she deserves the best, and you deserve your holiday shopping to be as stress-free as possible. Here’s to many special moments with you and yours this holiday season!
