Nine decades is a long time for a grandmother to experience life and spend time with her family. However, despite being alive for nearly a century, many grandmothers do not recognise how important they are to those around them. Providing her with a gift from the heart will not only have the potential to touch her deeply, but it will also allow her to see the impact she has had on her family and friends throughout her life.

Design a family tree for your 90-year-old grandmother to show her how the family has grown. The finished design may be placed into a book or even turned into a giant wall collage (if there is enough time before the birthday). If you choose to create a book, dedicate the first few pages to your grandmother, including stories, photos and newspaper clippings from her younger years. Add a page for each member of the family, including facts about that person. For a wall collage, have each member of the family write down a fond memory about the birthday girl.
Create a scrapbook for your grandmother. Nine decades is a long time to spend experiencing life; unfortunately, she may not remember all her experiences at her age. Providing your grandmother with a scrapbook detailing her birth, childhood, teenage years and adult years until the present will allow her to take a walk down memory lane. Include newspaper clippings, old photographs and other keepsakes (old letters, passports, documents). Spend time looking through the book with your grandmother on her 90th birthday.
Book of Lessons
Instead of a general scrapbook, consider making a Book of Lessons. Gather family and friends of your grandmother and ask them to write a few things that the 90-year-old birthday girl has taught them in their lives. After receiving each paper, type out the pages and paste them into a book. Despite living for 90 years, many older individuals do not understand the impact they have had upon the world. A book explaining what lessons she will leave behind when she passes is an excellent way to show how much she means to you.
