Thinking about our sweet Nanas gives us this heartwarming feeling. They radiate immense warmth when they give you a hug, the smell of love that evaporates from their cup of tea; the wrinkles around their eyes that tells you a thousand stories, the veins in her hands that guide you through the journey of life. Who doesn’t love eating a savory piece of candy given by their Nana when their mom isn't looking? Who doesn’t like taking  twenty bucks from their Nana even though their parents tell her not to? 


Well, it is what Nanas do; it is their job to spoil us into becoming who we are today. Our Nanas take every opportunity they can get to spoil us, and we sure love them for it. So what are you going to give them back in return?

How to pick Nana Gifts

Some of you might find it difficult to pick a gift for your sweet-loving Nana. Let’s face it, you don’t fall within the same age group; you probably don’t have the same interests; you most likely don’t share the same hobbies. Well, for one thing, you should consider  your Nonna’s age when picking gifts for her.Buying a gift for a 50-year-old Nonna is definitely not the same as buying a gift for a Nonna in her 70s or 80s. Moreover, you should consider what your budget is. If you have to stick to an allowance, consider buying a group gift for Nonna with your siblings or cousins. Your piggy banks combined should buy Nonna a really special gift. And if you are a working adult, with more than a piggy bank to spare, we’ve got inspirational gift ideas as well.


Nana and Papa Gifts

A great idea that you might take into consideration is buying a matching gift for both Nana and Papa; we don’t want our loving pawpaws to feel left out! Personalised Nana gifts might be your best option in this scenario. Sure, giving them any sort of gift would make Nana and Papa happy, but customized gifts is a sure way to send them over the moon!


When to buy Nana Gifts

You might be looking for Nana gift ideas because it is Nonna’s birthday; or maybe it is Mother’s day; or because Thanksgiving is knocking on our doors. Maybe you want your Nana to feel the love on Valentine’s day; or maybe you’re buying a grandma baby shower gift- in case you were wondering, some people celebrate grandmas to be and throw them a shower with cake and gifts! You also might be looking for Nonna gifts because it is Christmas, or Ramadan, or Hanukkah. And sometimes, the best gifts we receive are those that we recieve without a special occasion; everyday should be Nana’s birthday.


What makes Nana Gifts Unique/ How can you make it special

Personalised Nana Gifts can be a thoughtful idea. It makes Nana feel so special knowing that her gift is one of a kind; we are positive that she will be boasting about it to anyone she sees for a decade. Imagine that look on her adorable face as she opens the gift that no one in the world has but her!


So here is a list of 40 items that we know your Nonna is going to adore,


1-Nana Custom Apron


You can give Nana a custom apron; this can be the perfect gift for Nana to strut around in the kitchen; she could be wearing an apron with your face on it (making a funny facial expression), or a picture of her pet taking a nap...How adorable is that scene? How could it get any cuter you may ask? A matching set for both Nana and Papa. And to top it all, these aprons are water-resistant!


2-Custom Oven Mitts

Imagine how thrilled your Nana would be if you give her custom over mitts? She would be wearing those cute customized mitts with Papa’s face on them, while taking that freshly-baked pie out of the oven, whereas everyone will be wondering where she got them from.


3-Custom Double Oven Mitts 

You can get Nonna custom double oven mitts along with the custom oven mitts, or you can just give her the double mitts solo. You can choose Nonna’s favorite color for the mitts, the pattern on them and any image you think she would like. Does it get any more personal than that? If you put your face on it, she will be sure to show everyone what a great grandkid she has!


4-Custom Pot Holders

Another cute gift for Nonna would be to give her a custom pot holder. Sure, sure, she would be using it to hold pots...but do you know what Papa would use it for? To hold his beer of course, and we wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

Our Nanas have warmed our hearts since the day we were born; it would be nice if we can return some of the warmth with this unique knit blanket.
