You could simply give her flowers on a painted or personalized old wine  bottle.

My grandma just likes anything that is homemade by her grandsons!

Does she garden?  Does she cook?  Does she play games (e.g., poker)?  Does she have any pets?  Is she a member of any clubs?  Does she like music?

My mother is almost 70 (ya, I was a bit of a "surprise"), and she likes things that make her life easier or more organized.  She doesn't really "need" anything that could be given on Christmas by a single person, so she's generally happy so long as someone spent a little effort (like very little) and took her likes/dislikes into consideration.

If you're any good at GIMP/Photoshop, you could try digitally restoring an old photograph of hers (preferably one of her as a child) or making a "painting" out of it in Inkscape/Illustrator.  Here's a good Instructable on how to get started.  Then all you have to do is print and frame.  You could also give the same print to your other family members.
