Buying Christmas gifts for your grandmother can be difficult, especially when grandmas are known for having everything. But even if your grandma carries half a pharmacy in her purse, we think she could probably find room in there for a good book. Here are our favorite Christmas gift ideas for grandma, books that she’ll enjoy this year and next. Most are available for under $25, so they won’t break the bank, either!
A Christmas Classic
Even if your grandma isn’t a big reader, she’ll still appreciate a gorgeous collection of beloved, classic Christmas tales that she remembers from her childhood. Whether she cracks the cover or not, a beautifully designed Christmas book will look great on her bookshelf or coffee table this holiday season!
A Love Story that Transcends Time
Everyone loves a good love story, and what better time to read a love story than during the holidays, when our hearts are open to love and anything can happen? If your grandma has ever told you the story of how she and your grandfather met, you know there’s a little twinkle of romance still left in her eye. Get her a timeless love story that she can savor during long winter nights.
Wholesome, Clean Reads
If your grandma is like most, she probably misses “the good old days,” a mythical time when people never said bad words, always said hello to each other on the street, and everyone showed up at church, every Sunday morning. If your grandma laments over the loss of politeness and the lack of good, clean entertainment, like Little House on the Prarie and The Andy Griffith Show, a wholesome read free of swearing, violence, and suggestive situations will be perfect.
A Trip to Amish Country
If your grandma loves visiting Amish Country, give her the gift of a trip, any day, any time with heartwarming Amish fiction. These stories dive deep into the fascinating culture, language, and beliefs of Amish and Mennonite communities, and they’re as warm and inviting as a handmade Amish quilt! For the grandma who loves Shaker chairs, fresh honey, handcrafts like sewing and crocheting, and sweet, homemade recipes, the world of Amish fiction has it all.
