A lot of grandmothers want to be called something other than “Grandma.”
Whether it’s Mimi, Nana, Gigi or another name, the nickname or term of endearment a grandchild calls his or her grandmother is extremely special.
Her nickname is music to her ears.
My son calls his grandmother “Mimi.” While on vacation, we picked her up a gift – a cute wooden sign that reads, “They call me Mimi because I’m too cool to be Grandma.”
It’s the first thing she owns with her nickname “Mimi,” and she proudly displays the sign in her living room.
You can find similar signs on Etsy.com, and many stores on the website will gladly make custom signs with your choice of saying, colors and font.
Like grandmothers, many grandfathers have nicknames too so this gift idea can be used for them as well. For example, my son calls his grandfather “Pappy” and his great-grandfather “Papaw.”
What happens at Grandma’s stays at Grandma’s…
