I need a great mother's day gift for my new baby's wonderful grandmas.

I have a baby who is less than 1 year old. Both sets of grandparents have been wonderfully helpful and supportive. I would like to get my mother and mother-in-law a special present for their first Mother's Day as the grandparent to my child (first grandchild on one side, 2nd on the other).
They are very difficult to buy for as they basically have everything, need nothing, and have very narrow tastes. MIL likes golf & bridge and is a former librarian. M is into art history and horses. Food or drink is RIGHT OUT. Fancy bath stuff I did last year. Scarves, jewelry etc would be well-received but sometimes are a 'miss' because of personal style. Experiences (hot air balloon, whale watching, etc.) would be, well, tolerated. I've run out of time to make photo books (although I will probably do that for Father's Day). Technology - they're not up for it. Basically these people are impossible to shop for.
If you can think of any inspiration for me to work with I would love it. I am thinking along the lines of the classic silver rattle or engraved pacifier clip keepsakes, but something for grandmas?
