Gifts for "Nana"??

DD calls my mom "Nana" and I'd like to get her something for Christmas that has "Nana" on it. I've seen a couple of cute necklaces on Etsy that can be customized, but most of the stuff out there says "Grandma" or "Mimi".

Last year we made her a calendar with DD's pics on it and I might do that again but wondered if anybody had any great ideas?

Have you looked at places that allow personalization. My kids call their grand parents Obaasan and Ojiisan so that is what we had to do. I had had good luck at local craft shows

Re: Gifts for "Nana"??

My MIL is Nana :-)
I saw this idea for Father's Day, but could be easily adapted to anyone. Get one of those wood/paper letters from a craft store, you know the 3d ones? Paint it, if you want. Then take pictures of your kids holding them, so that they spell "Nana" or "Dad" or whatever.
You could do a group shot of multiple kids, each holding a letter, or several individual shots with one letter in each one. A Pinterest search will show this better than I can explain, probably. They look really cute and easy as long as you can get the kiddos to sit still long enough for a good set of pics!

My neighbor has a license plate holder that says "Happiness is being called Grammi" - you could probably get one like that but that says "nana"
