A lot of grandmothers wish to see the family tradition continue. They like presenting the same presents they received decades ago when they delivered their little ones. Or sometimes, they’ll even pass down a family heirloom.
Grandmothers often present traditional blankets, mattresses, nursing gowns, jewels, etc. They also think that caring and sharing in such emotionally intense times helps build better relationships.
To put it succinctly, grandmothers want to present new moms all the glitter and glow. Here are several trendy and traditional push present ideas that new grandmothers can present to their daughters and daughter in laws.
1. Hand Woven Gifts
Hand-woven scarves, sweaters, or blankets can be very useful for mom and baby. These gift items serve their purpose for a very long time and can be used at the birth of other babies in the family as well. Handcrafted items tend to hold a special place in the receiver’s heart.
2. Traditional Jewelry
Traditional jewelry are pieces that have been in your family for quite some time. These jewelry pieces are unique and are a symbol of family tradition. Often such jewelry is gorgeous and strikingly beautiful since it is usually gold. Also, older ornamental designs turn classic after some time, meaning that what’s old is probably in style again.
Perfumes are a fine selection to make memories last in the minds of loved ones. Scent has a miraculous way of reviving old memories. Gifting a nice perfume to your daughter or daughter-in-law will always associate you with a unique scent. Of course keep in mind that many new mothers will avoid fragrances as to not irritate their newborn’s skin…so this is a gift that will get used down the road.
4. All Baby Stuff
This one is something every grandmother does happily for the rest of the baby’s life. Grandmothers consciously get clothing, lotions, creams and everything while waiting to welcome the new addition in the family with open arms. Onesies, cribs, nappies, diapers, hand-woven slippers, handkerchiefs, sweaters, blankets and much more will always stay for you at an arm’s length. Grandmothers just want everything prim and proper for their grandchild.
Besides all these gifts, you can present cash and let mom purchase whatever she wants.
Whatever gift grandma presents will be appreciated and cherished for the rest of her life.
