Now that I have three grown kids on their own and one rambunctious 2 1/2-year-old grandson, I’m beginning to get the grandma life. I can’t imagine a more challenging, youth-inspiring, stay-on-your-toes kind of lifestyle than that of keeping up with a toddler on the go at all times. It has even become difficult to out-wit him. He has my number and he knows it. But I must admit that I am okay with it, every bit of it. In fact, I’ve fallen in love with ‘Grandmotherhood.’
With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve considered a few things that would light me up if I received them from my kids or grandchild. I know that buying for a grandma can leave anyone stumped, but you must remember that we are still women who enjoy feminine considerations. So I put on my thinking cap and came up with a short list of ideas that may help and inspire you to think of your own mom/grandmother.
Each item can be purchased from Target.

Mostly grandmothers just want a hug and a kiss, but a gift is always received as a piece of your heart wrapped with a bow.
