The most wonderful time of the year is slowly approaching and the question to ask is this: have you gotten into the Christmas spirit yet? As we all know, this holiday is not just about receiving presents, but about giving them out as well. We’re sure your list is already in draft mode, so we thought about pitching in with just a few more gift ideas for one of the most respected family members: grandma.
So let’s start the brainstorming session: kitchen wares (grandmas cook the best food!), warm blankets, beautiful and sensitive jewelry… Made your pick? Then find some great handmade items from each of those categories below:
1. Tree of Life Bracelet by georgiedesigns
Let’s kick off the list with a gorgeous bracelet that’ll be simply perfect for your grandmother. Featuring a tree of life circle, this sterling silver bangle was hand formed and then hand hammered and tumbled for shine and strength. Exquisite, right? The charms on it are optional (just select as many as you’d like, from 0 to 10) and come in a total of three possible designs: birthstone, initial or symbol.
Actually, why not take the opportunity to add in charms representing all of her children and grandchildren’s initials? So lovely, we know… Click the link below to shop.

Another failsafe suggestion on the list of handmade gifts for grandma is this amazing rustic apron. With a single cross at the back and a large deep pocket at the front, this is a must-have item that effortlessly combines practicality and good looks.
The material used to make it is Egyptian linen in a soft grey hue, boasting a subtle herringbone weave.
