No matter how you call your grandma, now is the perfect time to give her special and meaningful gifts. Abuela, Grandma, Abuelita, Nana, Grammy, Mami, Mamá… there are so many names we use! Whatever we call her, abuelas are special people in our lives. If you haven’t found the perfect Christmas gift for her, don’t stress. We found great options that are thoughtful, too.

- Netflix subscription
Chances are your grandmother doesn’t know about Netflix, but once she discovers it, she might be hooked. There are movies in many languages on Netflix, movies she can enjoy with her grandkids and even novelas! A streaming stick (like an Amazon Fire TV Stick) is needed if she doesn’t have a video game console like PlayStation, or you can get a Netflix subscription for DVDs.
- Necklace to keep her grandkids near her heart
There are many necklace options to choose from, my favorite one is from Origami Owl. You can pick initials, (her own or her grandkids!) and there is also an abuela charm (or grandma). You can also engrave her grandkids’s names, so she will always have them close to her heart. Etsy has a great selection!
- Photo book or photo gifts
My mom always complains that now with digital cameras no one ever prints photos anymore. (She’s right!) So a photo book is a great gift for abuelas who love flipping through photo albums. Make a photo book of the best moments of the year, or of a trip you took together. Other great options are photo mugs or photo calendars (a gift that will last all year long!)
- Subscription Boxes
A subscription is a great gift for Abuela—something that she can get all year long. Some of my favorites are “Try the World” (you get a box with gourmet products from a different country in the world every two months). Gramsly delivers care packages especially for grandparents!
- Pamper her!
Abuelas are also doing things for other people, their kids, their grandkids, their spouses… why not get her something that is only for herself? A mani-pedi, a facial, a massage. Better yet, make it a date and spend some time with your mamá! You will cherish the time and you will both feel relaxed and rejuvenated!
