The 17 best Mother's Day gifts for grandmothers

Best Mothers Day Presents for Grandmothers

If you're looking for a Mother's Day present for your mum or mother-in-law from your little ones, there are plenty of gift ideas for grandmothers that they will treasure. 

This year, Mother's Day falls on Sunday, March 14, 2021. Write that down in your diary now! 

What are you going to buy your little one's Nanny? You can acknowledge their place as your mum, as well as grandma, and these special Mother's Day presents will make Nana feel really loved. Whether you're looking for some special jewellery, a personalised cushion, or a cheeky tin for Nana to keep her 'secret' chocolate biscuits in, we've chosen our favourite Mother's Day gifts for grandmothers. 

We all know grandparents treat our little ones to biscuits when we're not looking (my son says "two chocolate biscuits" the moment I mention going to Nana's house). 

Children love cooking with grandma (especially if things get messy) so make sure Team Kitchen is decked out in style in this adorable grandma and grandchild apron set. The adult apron comes in navy or charcoal, while the child’s one can be pink or turquoise and is personalised with your little one’s name.

Gran will love a personalised necklace engraved with the names of her grandchildren - a piece of jewellery more valuable than anything else in her jewellery box. Available in silver, gold plated, or rose gold plated, with up to 12 characters per name. 

This clever idea allows you to create a mug complete with a drawing of your grandma on it. Choose hairstyle and colour, eye colour, skin tone, eyelashes and glasses to create an image of granny. There’s even the option to add in wrinkles but please be kind!

Rather than a bunch of fresh flowers that will die in a week or two, treat Nana to this stunning dried flower arrangement with a beehive ceramic vase. She'll then be able to enjoy them for months on end. 

Treat granny to a beautiful skincare set that will brighten, smooth, lift, plump and generally cheer up skin. We especially like the Boob Tube cream. 

Who doesn't love a tea-related pun? Granny will adore popping her cuppa down on this special coaster. 

Is your grandma more of a 'glam-ma'? Then this fabulous apron will be right up her street. It comes in a choice of navy or pink and ensures they look fashionable while they're baking cookies with the grandchildren. 

Grandmas who love a bit of bling will love this pretty necklace, but, look closer, and you’ll see it’s particularly special. Made to order, it features your choice of boy/girl figures set in sterling silver with personalised cut-out initials on each. There’s also a short message in the gift box, which says “We Love You Grandma/Nana/Nanny/Granny”, depending on the name you use.

This grandma button print is customised so you can choose the number of grandchildren, their genders and their ages to produce a beautiful family image that will be treasured for years to come.

If you’ve got a granny who loves to knit, why not treat them to this knitting bag? This specially designed bag will keep their needles safe, secure and out of the way for when little people come to play.

We love tealights - they're great at setting a relaxing mood in a room, whether you use one or several. This personalised wooden tealight holder is super cute for grannies, and the handmade wood makes it suitable for all sorts of room decor. it's available in small or large sizes (an extra £2.50 for large), and you can personalise the name and the message underneath. 

This special story book allows you to create your own tale for children and their grandparents. Illustrated with drawings of a polar bear family, the book weaves in real-life details, from where your grandparents live and their hobbies to your child’s favourite game and activity, to create a keepsake that is completely unique to them.

Ideal for a necklace or charm bracelet, this tree of life charm has little green gemstones and a heart for Granny to treasure. 

Got a granny who always has a special spot on the sofa? Make sure she’s sitting comfortable with this stylish hobby cushion. Whether it’s knitting, reading, gin-drinking or playing Scrabble, you can customise these cushions with her favourite past-time. 

Find out about your grandma’s life before you or your little one came along with this journal. Each page has questions which prompt her to write about key moments, events and thoughts, tell you her memories and reveal funny stories. There’s also room for photographs and mementos so you can create something that you’ll treasure forever.

Treat grandmas who are a whizz in the kitchen to this beautiful wooden chopping board. It’s large enough to chop vegetables and meat or to be used to serve up after-dinner cheeses. Plus, you can customise it with up to 18 characters to show them you really appreciate their culinary efforts.
