What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about your grandma? Maybe it’s the delicious smell of her baked pies when you step into her house or perhaps that she knits you pullovers for every single one of your birthdays.

We have gathered 30 lovely present ideas for grandma, so you can give her something special this year and really express how thankful you are to her. Here is our pick of the best gifts for grandma!
