Let’s be honest: the best gift Grandma can receive is your time. But if you want to get her a nice little present for Christmas, her birthday, or Mother’s Day, we found some gifts for Grandma that cost under $30. While cheap, we made sure to only include gift ideas that were thoughtful and practical. To get a gift that best suits your grandma, think about her hobbies or what she’s always talking about. Does she love her accessories, gardening, or knitting up a storm?
Whatever she’s into, and whether she’s 85 or 45, here are gifts grandma will love that won’t hurt your wallet (if she’s thrifty she’ll love that, too).

Best Jewelry Gifts for Grandma Under $30
1. Grandma Necklace
Personalized necklace charms ($29, Etsy) engraved with the years she became a mom and a grandma are sure to be her new favorite accessories. Compare this made-to-order gift to other personalized jewelry and you’ll see this is a bargain. A quick Google search will show you that the cheapest average custom necklace starts at $65, which costs more than twice as much as this one.
2. Grandma Morse Code Bracelet
Send her a secret message with this Morse code bracelet ($22.75, Etsy). The beads spell out grandma (or another message) in, you guessed it, Morse code. To passersby, it’ll just look like a charming bracelet, but Grandma will know the message it holds.
3. This Grandma Is Loved Personalized Keychain
Grandma will think of you every time she grabs her keys with this personalized keychain ($10.99, Etsy). And, you can add several grandkid names to it while staying under $20.
4. Heart Family Tree Necklace for Mom
Map out the family tree with this heart necklace ($23, Callie). You can keep it simple or add names for a nominal extra cost. Even if you add several names, you’re still spending less than you would at a jewelry store for a necklace with engraving.
5. Message in a Bottle Earring Collection
These post earrings ($18, Sugarboo & Co.) are sweet and simple. We found other gold-plated heart earrings online for about $75, and those missed out on a special bottled message for grandma.

6. Sipski Wine Holder
Let Grandma indulge in a bubble bath with a glass of something special when you gift her this wine holder ($15, Target) that clings to the tub wall. It also works well at a campsite or while tailgating. We love that with this gift priced at just $10, you could also buy her a bottle of Trader Joe’s wine while staying on budget.
7. Beloved Coconut & Warm Vanilla Body Cream Lotion
8. World’s Best Grandma Candle
Fill her home with sweet scents while also telling her you love her with this candle ($13.99, Amazon). With more than 45 hours of burn time and at about $1 an ounce, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. Plus, you can snag it without any shipping costs with Amazon Prime.
9. Full-Length Luxury Bathrobe
Pamper your grandma with a luxury robe ($24.99, Target) that feels oh so good to slip into after her bubble bath — or you know, just on a random Tuesday. Robes from Pottery Barn and Lands’ End start at around $60, and we found plenty of robes that were well over $100. You can both relax at this price!
10. Super Food Bowl Sheet Mask Set
Grandma will feel like a million bucks with her at-home facial masks ($16, Ulta). Meanwhile, you’ll feel like a genius for scoring a spa gift for $16. Ulta frequently runs sales, so watch the site for bargain prices.
Best Garden Gifts for Grandma Under $25
11. Mandala Lotus Optical Illusion Hanging Metal Spinner
Brighten her day with a colorful spinner outside her window. Some decorative garden spinners ($19.95, Plow & Hearth) can cost more than $100, so we thought this 12-inch wide garden spinner was a steal! Just note that these sell out fast, so keep an eye out for restocks.
12. Heart-Shaped Tabletop Planter
Plan a little quality time with Grandma as you work together to assemble this succulent garden ($14.99, Gardener’s Supply Company). You could save a few dollars per planter if you buy three at $13.50 each. Better yet, give one to grandma, one to your mom, and another to your aunt.
13. Floral-Printed Weeder Glove Spa Gift Set
This glove set ($24, Uncommon Goods) also includes a shea butter bar soap to cleanse and moisturize hands after working in the dirt. It delivers big bang for your buck — we found other high-quality floral garden gloves online for $30 – $40.
14. Mason Jar Indoor Flower Garden
If grandma can’t garden outside anymore, you’ll delight her with this thoughtful indoor flower garden ($24, Uncommon Goods). It’s easy to set up and enjoy fresh flowers without having to step outside. We love that this gift set costs less than if you sent her a bouquet from the florist.
15. Juegoal 34-Inch Butterfly, Dragonfly & Hummingbird Garden Stakes
Dress up potted plants or flower beds outside with metal garden stakes ($22.99, Amazon) that look like butterflies, dragonflies, and hummingbirds. Give them to this special lady all at once or spread out the love (and the cost) when you deliver one to her each time you visit.
Best Crafts and Puzzle Gifts for Grandma Under $30
16. Choose Joy by Ink & Willow

17. Farmhouse Style Kit Club
Crafters are always looking for a new project. Gift your grandma with a monthly subscription to one of Annie’s Kit Clubs ($19.99, Annie’s Kit Clubs). From farmhouse-style decor to crocheting and quilting kits, there are projects to fit the skills of any crafter. The best part is the first month is just $9.99. You can cancel the subscription at any time.
18. Spot the Hidden Clues Agatha Christie Puzzle
Literary lovers and skilled problem solvers will be thrilled to complete this 1,000-piece puzzle ($20, Uncommon Goods). Once it’s put together, there is a second riddle to solve. We love a gift that delivers two rounds of fun for the price of one.
19. The Ultimate Brain Health Puzzle Book for Adults
Keep grandma’s brain sharp with a big book of puzzles ($26, Lay It Flat). Do the first few brain teasers together to see if you’ve got what it takes. With more than 130 puzzles, this book offers hours of entertainment.
20. Vintage Succulents Puzzle
Puzzles are great to work on alone or with a partner. Gift grandma this vintage succulents puzzle ($22, Uncommon Goods) and help her get started. She’ll appreciate the one-on-one time together. You’ll love saving $2 when you buy this puzzle here versus at other online retailers.

21. Artisan Truffles
You could spend twice as much on handcrafted chocolates from somewhere else, but why? We love the look of this 16-piece assorted mix of truffles ($21.95, Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Company) as much as we do the price.
22. Pick Two Teas
Does grandma take her morning tea pretty seriously? Customize your gift to her tastes when you pick two from a series of available teas ($24.99, Harry & David). We love that they come in beautiful tins that she can reuse. If you’ve never shopped at Harry & David, you can give them your email address to get a code for 10% off your first order.
23. Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies Sampler Box
She’ll think these taste just like her grandma used to make — or maybe even better. Send grandma a sweet treat that’s more affordable than cookies from the local bakery ($24.99, Mrs. Fields).
24. Ferrero Golden Gallery Signature Fine Assorted Chocolates Gift Box
Walmart has a great assortment of artisan-style chocolates ($22.99, Walmart), and we really like the high-end look of this box. It has 24 chocolates on sale for only $17.99. That’s less than $1 per chocolate.
25. Bean Box Coffee Sampler
Coffee snobs of any age will savor this single gift box ($24, Bean Box) with four curated bags of coffee beans. This way Grandma can enjoy many more cups of high-quality coffee with this gift than with a standard Starbucks gift card. Plus, you can save 10% when you gift her a 6-month coffee sampling subscription.
