I am an expert on grandparent gifts as I have 10 grandchildren from 33 to twin boys 7. I would love any and all of these items.
1)Get adult siblings together to send her on a trip- big or small. It could be with a community group (Life Long Learners) to local museums or gardens. A bigger one might be with Road Scholar. Just make the call today and write the gift on your card. Simple.
2))Trip gear like rolling luggage or multiple medication medisets At, 74 I travel all the time. So do most Grandmas.
3)Gardening tools.gardening tools for seniors .Find out what she does not have.Kneeling stools for gardening are great for aging knees. Plants –or plant garden art.
4)Custom made art pots. My daughter and grandchildren paint pots for me and they are my treasures. I still have them now that they are in their 20’s.
5)Technology- Like I said before Jitterbug — – I love this phone- google and order online
7)A book whose cover says “We Love You Grandma-“ with messages written from all the grandkids plus pictures. Cheap, fast and irreplaceable.
8)Handprints of babies/toddlers/kids in plaster of paris or painted . I made one for my Mom in school in kindergarten (1948) and I recall how thrilled she was. You can also just take a good piece of paper, use a non- toxic, colored ink and put handprints on, write something sweet, date and buy a frame.

10)Technology – Tablet that will do Skype or Facetime. The best gift is a visit from family on a regular basis. If you live long distance, this is a great way to visit. Arrange and pay for someone to teach her how to use. It
