Living 90 years is a milestone that deserves to be honoured. When you are lucky enough to have your grandmother still with you when she is 90 years old, be sure to choose an appropriate gift to wish her well. Many people who reach their 90s might not be in the best health, so select a gift that fits her stage of life and her abilities.


If your grandmother is disabled or is unable to get around as well as she used to, she likely spends a lot of time sitting in a comfortable chair or in bed. Choose comfortable clothing for her that will allow her to relax. A nightgown or a set of pyjamas is a good option for a grandmother who is bed-bound, while a cardigan is an idea if your grandmother is still able to get out and do things in her community.


Someone who has reached 90 years old has likely done a lot of things in her life. Give her a framed picture of her wedding, all of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren or something else that would be significant to her. If her family is important to her, create a family tree for her. Paint a tree on a large canvas and place a photograph of each of her family members in the appropriate spot. She can hang the tree on her wall and show all of her friends how large her family is.


Some 90-year-old grandmothers might not be able to enjoy some of the activities they liked in their younger years. If your grandmother likes a certain type of food, that is something she can enjoy as long as she lives. For a grandmother with a sweet tooth, put together a gift basket filled with her favourite treats. If she enjoys homemade jams, give her a selection of them along with some muffins or scones. Think about the types of things she likes to eat, and put together a gift based on that.


One of the best gifts you can give your grandmother is your time. If your budget is restricted, simply go to her house and spend the afternoon with her. While you are there, cook her dinner or bring takeout and enjoy a meal for her. If she still lives in her home, help her clean up or do some yard work for her so that she doesn't have to worry about it.
