Gifts for Grandparents
Your grandparents deserve a little something special from you. After all, they love you so much! Why not give them a token of your love in return? Here are some gifts you can give any time of year. Don’t forget that a present you two make together can be even more special than something you just buy out of a store. If anyone knows the value of a considerate gift, it’s Grandma and Grandpa.
Make Them Something
Show them you care about their history and make them a timeline of where they’ve been.
A journal passed between the generations can keep letters, memories, and feelings recorded in a single book.
A photo album and scrapbook of your times together lets them show off their family and reminisce.
An arts project together could be great bonding.
Let them keep the quilt or pillows you made together. Arts and crafts are perfect.
Write “FOR MY GRANDPARENTS” in big letters on the frame.
Who else would wear a sweatshirt with a child’s face on it?
How about a T-shirt with some witty, grandparental claim? “OLD FART” never gets boring.
A digital photo frame lets them scroll through all their newest pictures of you.
A photo family tree is an artful way to hang display the whole family at once.
Locket key chains will keep them from forgetting their keys. They’d never lose you!
All Grandparents Collect Something
Like they guard over you, let these angels guard over them. Nationwide travelers may collect themed thimbles. Send them a postcard wherever you go. Novelty pillows add a touch of Hallmark whimsy to a home. If you’re away, a porcelain doll may try to fill your place.
Nurture Their Hobbies
Do they garden?
Are they into sports and recreation?
If they travel, get them a guide to bring along on their favorite jaunts.
They’re chefs, aren’t they? Get them a gadget for the kitchen to make cooking easier.
