Grandma to be baby shower?

Is this a thing now? Apparently it is according to this article (link below).

Did your mom have a baby shower? My mom sure as heck didn't when I was pregnant. Her co workers did pitch in for a very sweet baby album and a disposable camera. I thought that was cute, but they didn't buy her baby things.

What do you think of this?

    I just heard about this here on Moms.com a few weeks ago. No my mom and mil did not have grandma showers! Usually if something is needed at grandma's house the parents or grandma will get it or bring it over for the time they will be there. I don't think there's any sense in having a shower for her.
