The time when a woman becomes a grandmother for the first time is special. Yes, she has probably been a mother for quite a while, which is a very different kind of blessing. But being a grandmother is something altogether different. An opportunity to share a bond with a new child brought into the world by your very own child. And while that precious boy or girl is technically not yours, in many ways he or she is endeared to you even more so.
And then there is the realization. The realization that while you could potentially experience the love of many grandchildren in the future, you will only ever cherish the role of first-time grandma this once. And what a noble, beautiful and rewarding role it is. In fact, first-time grandmothers deserve a moment of celebration and we have some awesome ideas up our sleeve.
Instead of falling prey to the myth that grandmothers are notoriously difficult to shop for, let the Gift Advisors at The Bradford Exchange help you find a personalized present that is perfect for first-time grandmas. One that will truly touch her heart.
Here are a couple of our top gifts for first-time grandmothers:
Brighten her first Christmas as a grandmother! This hand-blown glass Christmas ornament will look so beautiful on her tree. And with its thoughtful glittering sentiment, it’s such a magical way to honor her too. The new grandmother’s name graces a heart-shaped charm hanging from the top of the ornament – a wonderful personal touch. Best of all, this holiday treasure warmly illuminates and sparkles from within, all conveniently controlled with a built-in 24-hour timer. You can even make a grand presentation with the included custom-designed keepsake box.
A tuneful tribute to a first-time grandmother! The meaningful relationship between a granddaughter and her grandmother grows sweeter each day. This elegant mirrored glass music box expresses the importance of that bond with its lovely etched sentiment and complementing poem card. You can even personalize its heart charm with the new grandmother’s name, so she knows it’s just for her. And when she hears this keepsake play “You Are So Beautiful,” she will instantly consider all the wonderful years she will have getting to know the most recent beautiful blessing in her life.
Not to be left out are our seasoned grandmothers – proud, beautiful and strong women whose children have blessed them with entire households of precious grandchildren over the years. Whether grandma has 3 grandkids she likes to spoil, or even 23, there are meaningful personalized gifts that perfectly celebrate her important place in the family. Here are just a few:
Fill grandma’s heart with love – personalize this necklace with up to 12 crystal birthstones symbolizing each special grandchild.
Create a wearable family tree for grandma – personalize this necklace with up to 7 crystal birthstones and 7 engraved names to honor each loved one.
Share a gorgeous expression of family love with grandma, inspired by Dr. Maya Angelou – personalize this necklace with up to 8 crystal birthstones and 8 engraved names.
Whether she’s a first-time grandmother or a grandmother many times over, the devotion and dedication she expresses for each individual grandchild is a beautiful thing. It’s practically a work of art. That’s probably why we love and respect our grandmothers so very much. Why not take a second to realize just how grand they truly are?
