Every single one of us has a memory with Grandma we’ll never forget. Whether it was cooking your first pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe, an early morning beach trip, or starting a garden, you will cherish this memory forever.

One of the best gifts you can give is to form a new memory by spending time with the ones you love. Do something both you and Grandma will love. Spend the time you have with your grandmother by doing something innovative and unforgettable. Call it a “Grandma and Me” Day.

Craft Something Special

Most of the best gifts are handmade. They are personalized in a way a store-bought item is not. Make your grandma a gift she will want to keep forever.

  • Trendy Tote

Grandma is always holding a bag. She takes one to the grocery store, one to the mall, and carries another on a daily basis.

Give your grandma a gift she can use every single day. Craft her a tote she will want to show off to her senior friends! All you have to do is buy a plain tote from your local art supply store and get creative. Draw or write on the tote with fabric paint or glitter glue and sew buttons to create a unique work of art.

  • Picture Frame with Scrabbled Letters

Grandma’s house is full of photos of her friends and family. Why not create a unique frame for her to display her photos in? This picture frame will enhance any location you choose to decorate. With some quick steps you can brighten up her living room.

You will first need to buy a blank picture frame, craft paper, some tiled letters, and small decorations to cover your frame with.

The first step is to select the image you will frame. Choose the image that speaks out to you; the one that’s memory you will never forget. The image you were glad was captured at a precise moment in time. The one where you and Grandma are having the time of your lives with smiles that reach from ear to ear. That Kodak moment.

After the image process is complete, it is time to scrabble some letters to give your frame an artsy touch. Words or short phrases such as Best Grandmother, Grandkids, Nana, and Grandma are all great ideas.

Once you’ve decided on the letters, try to connect these words to make it resemble an actual game of Scrabble;. Go a step further by adding small stickers, ribbon, or even jewels to give your frame the perfect look!

Once everything is complete, the last step is to insert the image inside the frame.

  • Meaningful Card

Cards are a special way to express compassion for Grandma. They are a classic holiday gift  with which you can never go wrong. Hand crafted cards are the ones that hold the most meaning, simply because you dedicated your time crafting something special.

This holiday, express your love to Grandma with meaningful words. Write your grandma a letter and reminisce about your favorite memories together. But don’t stop there; write about what you love most about Grandma and tell her just how much you care for her. Define your love towards her with the use of words, craft paper, and markers. Always remember that a piece of paper can carry great significance within.
