Your mom is never truly only yours after your kids arrive. As baffling as it may be, you’ll just have to get used to coming in second to your own child when it comes to “grandma’s” affection.
So this said, what are the gifts that can be given to grandma on her birthday or some special day?
A way to make sure that your gift is a success, is to add the “grandma factor” into the gift. If you used to buy things that were useful and memorable, then good for you. But now it’s time for the things that warms the heart.
No idea how to find a gift like that?

Go back in time in the world of pictures.
The world of photography has moved forwards in leaps and bounds. Where once the only way to have a tactile memory of loved ones was to sit through hours of painting, now it can be done in seconds and through a device that almost everyone has. A perfect gift for grandma would be to get portrait photographer in Bend Oregon.
Make sure to get it done professionally, as portrait photographs look better when done professionally.
DIY gifts from your kids.
Jewelry as gifts are appropriate for women (and sometimes men too!) of any age group. If you plan on getting jewelry for your mother, then opt for something like a charm bracelet, with custom made “finger print charms”. These finger prints could be of either you or your children. Adding a DIY bead bracelet that your children make will also make it extra special… kind of a 2-in-1 gift!
A portable memory box.
A memory box is something you store a few tactile parts of treasured memories in. craft a small box with tiny compartments, somewhat like a ring or pill box. Add in a few things that represent memories of her that was shared by both you and the children. Don’t forget to keep a few compartments empty for future memories. This gift is especially ideal if you live a long way away from her.
Any gift that has been personalized and customized automatically becomes special. You can get personalized clothing from most online gift shops. Add in the grandma factor by using a cute picture of the grandkids in her T-shirts. You can even try to do this at home. Use fabric paint and the hands and feet of your children, and you’ll make a cute design. Aprons, mugs and magnets with cute and funny “grandma” quotes are also good gift ideas.
Happy gift hunting!
