From birth to old age, grandma can become a source of support and support to help with a lot of your problems.
That’s why we think grandma is a great time to give gifts and also to help yourself in some ways, such as making a big, unexpected donation to a nonprofit, as well as making an unexpected donation for a medical or dental emergency.
“If you have any issues with your grandma, we strongly encourage you to donate,” said Dr. Jennifer Deutsch, a cardiologist in Cleveland, Ohio.
“It’s important for your grandmother to see as many of your needs as possible, and that includes supporting you financially.”
If you’re looking to give some extra cash to grandma’s favorite charity, you can even give grandma a gift card or a small discount on her groceries.
“Grandma can be an amazing supporter,” Deutsch said.
“She can give you something you may have forgotten or don’t want to have, and she can also make you laugh.”
And if you’re feeling generous and you think grandma might need a little extra support from your wallet, you’re not alone.
“A lot of people have a very strong sense of gratitude and appreciation for her,” said Liza Hargrove, a financial planner in St. Louis, Missouri.
“We tend to look at the financial aspect of a gift as being more important than her feeling gratitude or appreciation for us.”
For many, giving grandma a Christmas present is an unexpected gift that brings a smile to their faces.
But the more that grandma is present in your life, the more likely she will be to be there for you, too.
“I’ve found that if I give a gift to my grandma, I’m more likely to receive the support that she needs from me,” Hargrot said.
For the holidays, consider gifting a new cookbook or book for grandma.
You can also give her a present or a gift for your grandma’s birthday, anniversary or graduation, which is when she’s most likely to be home.
“You can be generous to your grandma,” Haggrove said.
When you’re ready to give grandma some more love, try giving her a book to read.
“The more that you can give her, the better,” Deitz said.
