Searching for Mother’s Day gifts for grandma is an important tradition to many families as, for some reason, we don’t have a designated “grandma day” in Australia. Something that, here at ClassBento, we find to be a national travesty up there with the disappearance of Harold Holt and the cultural hegemony that led to the downfall of Samboys crisps. That’s why we’re here to help you make your nanna, nan, nonna or oma feel truly special this Mother’s Day.
Obviously, what with the state of the word right now, it’s vitally important that everyone’s grandparents stay inside and self-isolate. That does, however, make coming up with Mother’s Day presents for grandma all the more difficult, but not impossible. So we’ve assembled a few quality grandma gifts for you to offer her that doesn’t compromise her health and keeps her active and engaged when stuck indoors.
Presents for grandma can often be a challenge. After a certain point, you tend to just go out and buy whatever you want, and after 70+ years on earth, there can sometimes be very little that nanna wants to indulge in outside of her realm of comfort. That’s why sometimes it can be important to consider gifts for grandma that are very much adjacent to pastimes and hobbies she already has. Nanna’s love to knit; no doubt about it. So offering her the chance to expand on a skillset she already has makes for one of the most enjoyable Mother’s Day gifts for grandma possible!
May we cordially recommend our stitching and embroidery craft boxes to you and your granny? Our punch needle embroidery class is as grandma-friendly as a tea-cosy crafted out of vintage lace. If your Nan hasn’t already mastered it, punch needle embroidery is similar to painting but, with thread in place of paint. It allows complete creative freedom and covers a variety of textures and patterns; imagination is the only limitation to what you can do with punch needle embroidery. It’s perfect for expanding grandma’s embroidery skillset and, with our easy-to-follow live stream - as well as all the materials and resources delivered straight to her door with our new LiveBox service - your Nan won’t have to compromise her health to learn from the best local artists in town.
Alternatively, our weaving class is a great Mother’s Day gift for nan! She’ll learn the basics of how to weave a gorgeous hanging wall-piece and - get this - the craft box contains her own personal loom! A loom, ladies and gentlemen. Bet she won’t see that coming. While you’re weaving together one of the best grandma gifts of all time, your nan will be using knitting needles like an amateur, completely oblivious to the weaving mastery you’re about to bestow upon her.
Mother’s Day gifts come in many shapes and sizes. If there’s another grandma stereotype/truism it’s that grandma’s love taking care of a garden, and purchasing nan a plant is a winner. However, it’s not that simple, currently. Nan can’t just go out and buy herself a bunch of marigolds and get to work in the garden, her health is at risk! But she can work on a small indoor green space!
Our range of live classes online grows every day, but we already offer a few very distinct, inside gardening options for a nanna to give two green thumbs up to! Our kokedama workshops are perfect gifts for grandmas who are stuck inside! Kokedama - or moss ball plants - is an ancient Japanese gardening technique that takes a small bonsai plant and wraps it in moss to create a decorative ball that’s ideal for indoors!
Requiring very little sunlight and minimal attention, kokedama plants are a literal ball of fun to make, and our craft box will deliver your grandma everything she needs to make it. Not only this, but indoor plants have been found to purify the air of toxins, as well as lower depression and anxiety. If you’re looking at gifts for grandma that will also lower her stress levels, our kokedama workshops are perfect.
Any Mother’s Day quarantine celebrations need to be strictly inside activities, and painting is perfect for such an occasion! Although ClassBento can’t offer its usual range of Paint N Sip classes, many of our expert artists have moved their painting classes online, so your granny can get creative without leaving the living room. Throw in a bottle of bubbly or wine and you’ve got your very own DIY Paint N Sip class!
With a fully interactive live stream to help guide her through the basics of whatever medium she’d most enjoy - and with a craft box full of all the artistic essentials - your Nan will be able to bring out her most expressive self for Mother’s Day. Not only this, but our online painting workshops are a lot of fun to do as a group, making this class an ideal family activity if you are all in self-isolation together. Whatever Mother’s Day gifts for grandma you’re looking for, learning to paint is sure to be a hit with the family matriarch.
Offering up Mother’s Day gifts for grandma is a tradition many families see as a very important part of the day, but if it isn’t, change that! It’s nanna, after all! She raised your mother, who in turn raised you, so if anything she deserves twice the credit. With ClassBento’s live classes online, you can circumnavigate the waters of gift-shopping in a time of quarantine.
Our new LiveBox classes offer you the opportunity for nan to jump on the Live stream and work face-to-face with one of our expert instructors, or, if the internet is a little beyond your grandma’s comprehension (no disrespect), a few select Craft Boxes contain all the necessary materials and resources - as well as instructions - she’ll need to complete the class without a computer. With so many options for Mother’s Day gifts for grandma, you can’t go wrong being grandkid of the year in 2020.
