I never know what to buy my grandmother, she has everything and then some. She always requests crossword puzzle books and mysteries, but that has even been difficult, as I don't know what she has, and I have bought her books she already owns more than once.
This time, i turned to ebay. I purchased her a 1979 grandmother ornament made by Hallmark, as this was the year she became a grandma, when I was born.
I was pleased with the condition of this 30 year old ornament, it still looks brand new. It came in the original box, but I also got her an ornament stand incase she doesn't feel like only displaying it at the holidays. She loves birds, and this ornament just so happens to have little birds on it... perfect!
It also says "Grandmothers bring happy times-- time and time again."
I think she will love it. I sent my mom pictures of it and asked her what she thought and she agrees, there is a good chance my granny will love this ornament, and it might bring back a few memories of how excited she was to become a grandmother.
