There's no one quite like Meemaw. Grandma's always willing to listen, she gives the very best hugs, and you know you can rely on her for an endless supply of delicious snacks. That's why Mother's Day is the perfect time to show her just how much you adore her. But what do you get the woman who seemingly already has everything? To help you out, we've compiled a list of heartfelt and worthy Mother's Day gifts for Grandma.

Here you'll find gifts for every type of grandmother. Does Nana live far away? Give her a lamp that lights up every time you're thinking of her. If your grandma loves cooking, gift her a spill-proof, personalized apron. Or maybe she could use some chill time with a silk pillowcase or a soothing shower fizzy. Whatever you choose from this list, you're sure to make Grandma feel extra special on Mother's Day, which is exactly what she deserves.  

$4 at Shutterfly

For the sentimental grandma

Shutterfly photo magnets

If there's one thing we all know about grandmas, it's that they love seeing photos of their grandkids. These personalized photo magnets start at just $3.99 for the small square size. Order half a dozen with candid shots or family portraits for an affordable and thoughtful gift. She'll love displaying them on the fridge along with her grandkids' latest artwork.

$25 at Williams Sonoma

For the home chef

Williams Sonoma Classic Personalized Apron

For the grandma who enjoys cooking, consider getting her a high-quality apron for whipping up all her favorite meals without worrying about the spills. This durable apron from Williams-Sonoma has an adjustable neck strap and ample pockets for holding spatulas and recipe cards. It comes in six colors, and the best part is that you can personalize it with her name.

$138 at Amazon

For the crafty grandma

Cricut Joy

This is a bit on the pricey side, but if your grandma loves craft projects, this little machine will be her new best friend. With the Cricut Joy, it's easy to make greeting cards, iron-on T-shirts, party decorations and so much more. Make something totally unique or choose from 50 ready-to-make projects online. It's a DIY crafter's dream.

$45 at Ravensburger

For the jigsaw lover

Ravensburger photo puzzle

What's even better than a Ravensburger puzzle? A 1,000-piece Ravensburger puzzle with a photo of Grandma's favorite grandkids or pets. You can even customize the box with a personalized message. Be sure to order this one in advance since it can take up to 10 business days to arrive.

$29 at Levain Bakery

For Grandma's sweet tooth

Levain Bakery cookies

Even if Grandma's cookies are the best, she still appreciates someone else baking for her on occasion. We love these massive cookies from New York's Levain Bakery. One cookie goes a long way, and if you pop them in the oven for a few minutes, they come out with a marvelous ooey, gooey center. Each batch arrives thoughtfully wrapped with cellophane and ribbons and comes packed in a beautiful blue box with a personal message. Get a 4-pack for $29, an 8-pack for $49, or a 12-pack for $79.

$24 at Amazon

For the grandma who values her beauty sleep

Zimasilk Mulberry Silk Pillowcase

If there's one thing Grandma deserves for Mother's Day, it's a good night's sleep. This 100% mulberry silk pillowcase from Zimasilk is a game-changer when it comes to your sleep routine. And it's amazingly durable too. That's why it's our top pick for the best silk pillowcase out there. Some beauty pros swear that using a silk pillowcase works wonders for your skin and hair. But our favorite thing about this pillowcase is that you won't wake up with "pillow face." (Yes, that's a thing.)

$23 at Amazon

For the keeper of family recipes

My Family Cookbook

Nothing beats Grandma's home cooking. With this book, your nana can pass those recipes on to future generations. There's plenty of room to store favorite recipes and write down new ones, so you'll never lose Gram's treasured chicken parmesan or apple pie recipe.

$17 at Amazon

For a spa-like experience

Cleverfy Aromatherapy Shower Steamers

It's impossible to go wrong with a gift that will help Grandma unwind and indulge in a little self-care. Treat your nana to an at-home spa day with these luxurious shower steamers. All she needs to do is place a fizzy in her shower, and soon she'll be enjoying the relaxing scents of lavender, eucalyptus, vanilla, watermelon, grapefruit or peppermint. 

$50 at Amazon

For the ultimate soak

Luxury Bathtub Caddy Tray

If Grandma prefers to unwind in the tub rather than the shower, she'll love this bathtub caddy tray. It's adjustable to fit almost any tub, and it will hold everything she needs for a relaxing soak: bath bombs, books, wine glass, phone, you name it.

See at Tea Runners

Sip, relax, repeat

Tea Runners Club

If you're not sure what to get Grandma, a tea subscription is always a worthy choice. She'll think of you every time she gets a special package in the mail or enjoys a warm cuppa. According to CNET's David Watsky, "Tea Runners does an especially nice job with its curated selections or ones based on your taste preferences. And the monthly mailers are put together especially well, wrapped in tissue paper all inside charming boxes." Gift subscriptions start at $22 and go up from there depending on how many boxes you purchase.

$81 at Amazon

For the green thumb grandma

Click & Grow Smart Garden

This Click & Grow indoor herb garden is a thoughtful gift for any grandmother who enjoys having fresh herbs on hand. Grandma can enjoy growing basil, parsley, cilantro, and even tomatoes year-round. She doesn't even technically need to have a green thumb, it's that easy. Just fill the base with water, put the pods in and watch your sprouts grow. All she needs to do is add a little water every now and then. Easy-peasy. 

$179 at Amazon

For the grandma who's far away

Friendship Lamps

This best-selling lamp is a sweet gift for the grandma who lives far away. Keep one lamp and send the other to your loved one. When one person touches the lamp, the other lamp lights up to let them know you're thinking of them. While it doesn't take the place of seeing each other in person, it will give Gran warm fuzzies every time she sees the lamp glow. 

$26 at Amazon

For the proud grandma

Grandma's Brag Board

It's a fact that all grandmas are proud of their grandkids. This classy plaque makes it easy for Grandma to hang up her favorite photos and artwork from loved ones. Send it to her along with some family pics, and she can happily show them off whenever guests stop by to visit.

$27 at Amazon

For the baking enthusiast

Embossing rolling pin

Does your grandmother love to bake? Give her an engraved rolling pin so she can roll out perfectly detailed cookie creations. These gorgeous rolling pins are crafted in Europe and come in a variety of patterns, including paisley, roses, flowering vines and more. Perfect for spring baking.

$31 at Papier

For the grandma who prefers snail mail

Papier Notecard Set

Grandma loves hearing from her grandkids, but texting or FaceTime might not be her thing. If that sounds like your gran, you can't go wrong with this Spring Rustic notecard set from Papier. It's just $31 for a set of 10, and each one is personalized with her name. If Grams enjoys taking pen to paper, she's sure to appreciate the quality of these cards and the whimsical floral print.
