5 great gifts to buy for your fashionista Grandma’s bday

by heatfeed

If your grandma’s a fashionista, chances are you don’t want to give her any typical, boring grandma gifts like ceramic cats and lace doilies.

You want to give her something elegant, stylish, and beautiful to suit who she truly is. Preferably, you’d like to get her something that’s not just fashionable but also usable.

You’ll also want to avoid something that requires her to be in person to get a good match – like a color of lipstick that may not suit her, or a dress that might not fit right. 

Here’s a list of presents that would make a great gift for your fashionable grandma’s birthday (or just to show how much you love her!)

An Oversized Tote Bag

There’s a good chance that your grandma has a big bag in which she carries pretty much everything you could need. Whether you need chapstick or a hand moisturizer; a handkerchief or a hair tie; there’s a good chance that grandma’s got it in her bag. 

So here’s the perfect gift for a fashionable grandma: an even bigger bag that’s not just stylish but also functional. With plenty of space, a range of styles, and a seemingly endless bottom, a tote bag is a great option for a fashionable grandma.

Not to mention, oversized handbags are one of the biggest trends in 2023, with YSL’s Icare and Chanel  Deauville tote bags being amongst the most searched items on their website.

A Bold Silk Scarf

A silk scarf is another great accessory to get your grandma and another gift that’s both functional and fashionable. It’s a great way for Grandma to get a little bit extra warmth whether she’s outdoors or indoors, but even beyond that, it’s a great statement piece! 

Whether you go for a plain, block-colored scarf, or something with bold colors and wild patterns, a scarf is a great way to show a bit of extra flair and personality in a fun way. Besides, it opens up your world of mix and matches allowing grandma to maximize her wardrobe by adding just one statement scarf. 

Another reason that a scarf is such a great accessory and the perfect gift is that it can be worn in so many different ways. Grandma can wear it classically looped around the neck, wrapped around her head, as a cowl, or tied in kerchief style for a different look each time.

A Classic, Neutral Sweater

Keeping on the theme of warm and stylish, you can never go wrong by gifting your fashionable grandma a sweater. As people get older, they tend to be more sensitive to the cold, which explains why your grandma always keeps the heat turned up to the max even when you’re sweating buckets. 

An elegant sweater or cardigan is a great gift for grandma – also because every time she wears the sweater she’ll be reminded of getting a warm hug from you.

Sweaters are also highly versatile clothing. Grandma can wear them with jeans, a skirt, or a dress; indoors or outdoors; in winter or summer; and with any kind of shoes.

If you plan on getting her a sweater, get her a neutral piece in a color like beige, black, white or navy,  that she’ll be able to mix and match with multiple outfits.

A Personalized Necklace

A piece of jewelry, such as a necklace is always a great gift idea for any girl or woman. For grandma, consider a more personalized touch. While you could buy a generic necklace at any store (which Grandma would love anyway), how about a personalized grandma necklace?

Personalized gifts are a great way to show you care, and beyond being a piece of jewelry is sentimental gifts that can reflect a particularly unique piece of your grandma’s personality, an inside joke, or a favorite memory.  

Guaranteed, you may not be able to knit Grandma custom sweaters or scarves like she always does for you (or even bake her favorite cookies without burning down your kitchen).

A customized necklace is a great gift and an affordable option. One day, the piece of personalized jewelry may even be an heirloom, handed down from your grandma to your children and future generations.

A Set of Colorful Nail Polish

Every girl loves nail polish – and that probably includes your grandma! A nail polish set is a great gift for Grandma, and truly the gift that keeps on giving. Give your grandma a range of fun shades that she can use to match all her outfits, and that she can keep on using until they run out. 

Go for a bright nail polish set, like a rainbow palette. Bright colors are a great way to bring a splash of extra youthfulness that will allow your grandmother to showcase her personality.  

Make sure you buy nail polishes that don’t contain toxic additives. These nail polishes are marketed as “10-free”.  Throw in an intensive moisturizer, cuticle cream, and manicure tools so grandma can have a full spa experience from the comfort of her own home.
