But know this: even though your grandmother insists on receiving a gift, the truth is, it will warm her heart if you treat her to something nice once in a while. Even though she claims that she doesn’t need anything, she will truly appreciate every gift you’ll give her.

How can you pick the best gift for your grandma? This depends on her interests or hobbies. If your grandma loves to bake, why not give her a personalized cookie jar? If she loves picking flowers in her garden, why not give her a personalized flower vase?

The keyword is PERSONALIZED. When you add a touch of personalization to your gift, the receiver will feel extra special. And if there’s anyone in this world that needs to feel special, that would be your grandmother.

So take down notes and consider these gift ideas for grandmothers who have everything. The good news is, you won’t even have to break the bank in creating these personalized gift ideas.

  1. Wooden Birthday Calendar

Gift idea so grandmas won’t forget family birthdays.

Wooden Birthday Calendar

Does your grandma tend to forget birthdays of family members and friends? Be there to the rescue and create this wooden birthday calendar. All you need is a hanging wooden frame, eye hooks, jump screws, precut cardboard shapes, and of course TeckWrap Craft vinyl.

The beauty of personalizing your gift is you can place any lettering or decoration you want. So don’t limit yourself with the design shown above.

Of course, you can buy one readily available online, but creating one of your own will make the gift more special. Plus, if you create this special gift, you can add more touch of personalization and the of course save a few bucks.

If you want, instead of sticking vinyl on those cute tiny hearts (date markers), you can place cut-out pictures of your family members in there.

This is an excellent hanging decoration for your grandma’s house. It’s a decoration with a purpose so your grandma won’t forget the birthdays of the whole family. If you want, you can paint the wooden frame and add a little glitter.
