Gran Isn't Dowdy

Hey there, yes you!  Have you a granny on your list to buy for this year?  

Our grandmothers, who almost always have everything and leave you scratching your head on what it is they might need, or, what it is they may get use of and if they will enjoy it?  Having said this, in my youth grannies were old, but no so today!  Nope, they're not old by any stretch of the imagination! Today's grans are very hip and for the majority very active, what with activities and hobbies they never had time for while bringing up baby!  Today, grandmothers are very active, outgoing and into participating more than ever before.  Lets see what nifty ideas we can come across while shopping for our Grans!

Most grans today have cell phones, or i-phones even Blackberry's so how about her own Leather Phone Case!  So Chic!
This comes from ChloeStanyon and it is perfect, all leather and hand made just for Grans phone, possibly even ask if  it can be personalized with her favorite quote or her name?

If Gran is satisfied with her phone case she presently has, how about a beautifully crafted leather bag which isn't over the top heavy or cumbersome?
Like this beauty from ltdleathercraft, actually if my grandchildren are reading, I want this! 

Many of our grans wear mementos, then possibly something like this beautiful locket from DearestMine

There is room for the tiny special memory messages from the grandchild(ren) inside this is such a special gift that Gran will certainly treasure!

Or a pair of Earrings the color of Azure Blue Island Water?  These earring from LimonBijoux are spectacular and I just bet Gran will love them!

OR, how about giving Gran a special personalized leather journal with a list of  questions and requests from her grandchildren, like, where did you meet grandpa; how do you bake your famous red velvet cake; ask for pictures from your gran mothers family and their names and what they did so you can have this for your family's future, or her favorite music, her favorite book and why?  What was the best time in her lifetime?  This information you may want for posterity can all be written in grans own hand writing for you to have in your future! 

This comes from the LadyArtisan shop and I just bet if you ask for a Custom Order it can be personalized with Grans own name on it....

Now I realize these are but some suggestions, but grandmothers aren't all into soap and lace bed jackets anymore, our grandmothers are youthful and vibrant, full of energy and up on the latest in this century, so don't go all dowdy, go bravely and seek out something that suits your special Gran and which tells her you put some thought into this special Christmas gift this year!

Find something to fit your Grandmothers' personality and make her realize just how very special she is to you!
