The Modern Grandma’s Mother’s Day Gift Guide: a list full of fun, interactive and homey items that will delight the Modern Grandma and any other Mother’s this Mother’s Day.
Who is the Modern Grandmother?
We were the first generation, where the majority of us raised a family and worked outside the house. Now, our children are blessing us with grandchildren or simply an empty nest. We are enjoying the gift of time in retirement, or at least planning for it. What are the best gifts for this vibrant, active generation of women or any other Mother.
An Experience - The Most Memorable Gift
Many of us want to see and experience the world. While Covid may have clipped our wings, we have been exploring our local areas deeper and planning to see more of the United States in 2021. From cooking classes to boat tours to horseback riding trips, giving the gift of experiences creates amazing memories. Below are some of my favorite experiences and would make the most memorable gift. (If you do not see your city listed, click on any tour and search for your city).
"Whether it’s a curious manatee, friendly dolphin, or colorful starfish – we’ve seen it all! Here’s your chance to get the best window seat possible by paddling Jupiter in one of our clear kayaks! Take an adventure alongside mangroves, beautiful waterways, and keep your eyes peeled for some exciting nature and wildlife! "
"This walking tour and interactive lunch combo provides a two-in-one experience in Charleston. With a celebrated local chef, Forrest Parker, you'll start with a 1.5-hour historical walking tour about the influences of Lowcountry food in the city of Charleston. Then watch a cooking demonstration from Parker before enjoying lunch paired with wine."
"Escape to the secluded islands and tropical beaches off the coast of Key West on this guided, full-day adventure to historic Dry Tortugas National Park. History buffs and outdoor enthusiasts alike will love this unique voyage, where getting there is half the fun on board the Yankee Freedom III, a luxurious, state-of-the-art catamaran. Enjoy snorkeling (equipment provided) in the crystal blue waters and take in the military fort, national park, campground, sandy beaches and coral reefs that make this area special. Breakfast and lunch included."
"Eat and drink your way through the French Quarter on a culinary walking tour designed to highlight New Orleans’ rich gastronomic heritage. Visit local institutions and holes-in-the-wall, taste a range of dishes and buy culinary souvenirs, like hot sauce and decadent pralines. Enjoy food samples at eat that stop, which add up to the equivalent of a full meal. "
We believe firmly in the phase, "if you don't use it, you will lose it" both physically and mentally. We are staying physically active and exploring new hobbies. We are playing golf or pickle ball, taking yoga classes and joining hiking groups. These are some of my favorite activewear products.
We invented the Book Club. We love learning and socializing with our family and friends. Yes, there maybe wine involved, but we do talk about the books.
These are two books I absolutely love.
We are spending more time at home (even before Covid). We want our environment to be comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. These gifts will brighten anyone’s home.
We haved learned to appreciate the need and joy of self care.
These are some products I love:
