Since grandparents can be difficult to buy for, gift baskets make the perfect birthday gift! You can fill the basket with lots of wonderful goodies, such as flavored coffees and teas, mixed nuts, chocolate covered cherries, nut bars, cookies, and gourmet candies. Sometimes Fruit Baskets are the way to go. Look for a variety of fruits, such as apples, oranges, bananas, berries, melons, pears, and anything else that might be in season. You can sprinkle unshelled nuts among the fruits, such as macadamia nuts, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, and pecans. If your grandparent loves working with his or her hands or has a favorite hobby, then think about purchasing or creating a gift basket filled with tools, puzzles, idea books, sewing or crochet supplies, patterns, a reading light, fishing supplies, and/or a magnifying glass for a great birthday gift.
