Grandmothers are a blessed gift; some people are fortunate enough to spend lots of time with their grandmothers and some hardley ever get to see them at all, much less exchange meaningful gifts with them.

Commemorate your grandmothers life by putting together a photo ablum of pictures, both old and new. Dig in to the project and find out where and when each of the pictures were taken; even the original ones from when she was a kid. Make notations near each photo to jog her memory. Each time you visit, you can take out the album and ask her to tell you the stories behind the pictures and the people in them; you will be treated to a beautiful piece of her history every time.
If you share a hobby with your grandmother, such as knitting, grab some needles and yarn and put them in a basket for Christmas. After the holiday, head over to her house for a visit to chat and knit. Often, time spent with her is more valuable than any other christmas gifts for grandma. When she was young, she probably spent many afternoons visiting with family; now, society has changed and we are all so busy, we often forget to take some time and enjoy those closest to us. However, there is nothing stopping you from bringing back such a wonderful tradition.
Cozy pajamas also make great christmas gifts for grandma. Wrap them up, along with a subscription to her favorite magazine that she enjoys reading and a basket of teas to enjoy while she reads. If you find, or have made, a great lap blanket, throw that in there as well. She will be thrilled with the handmade gift and the thought you put in to giving her a Christmas gift that suits her tastes.
Christmas gifts for grandma can also include the impromptu holiday party, thrown in honor of her.
