Gifts for Grandpa
1. Humorous T-Shirt
For the grandpa in your life with a sense of humor, this shirt would be a welcome addition to his closet. Now everyone will know that, not only is he a grandparent, he was an excellent father as well. If he does say so himself. Get it here.
2. Eyeglass Holder
Some of us are better at keeping track of our personal items than others… For the grandpa who always patting his shirt pocket for his glasses so he can better see his grandchildren, you might want to grab this handy eyeglass holder.
3. My Life Story So Far Journal
Give grandpa the opportunity to pass on his wealth of knowledge and wisdom in this very meaningful journal. It is full of prompts and room to write. He will enjoy the trips down memory lane and your children will be receiving a precious keepsake in the future.
Gifts for Grandma

2. Personalized Necklace with Grandchildren’s Names
I have personally given this gift to a grandma in our lives and she wears it all the time! The necklace is stamped with the names of all the grandchildren and their birthstones are added as well. Order yours here!
3. Personalized Journal
Turn your child’s artwork into the cover of a journal for grandma! She is sure to love such a personal gift and your child will be so proud of their art.
Gifts For Both
1. Photo Calendar
The personalized calendar idea has been around for awhile. I was very impressed, however, at the professional finish of the calendars by Minted. Check them out and see if you are not impressed as well!
2. DIY Christmas Ornament
For a very affordable handmade Christmas gift, your child could color a Christmas ornament from your local craft store. Many have the center cut out so a photo can be added. Let’s be honest. All the grandparents really want to see are the faces of their adorable grandchildren anyway. Who can blame them?! Here is a quick and easy tutorial for picture ornaments.
3. Pencil portraits
For the artistic grandparents, a hand drawn pencil portrait of the grandchildren would be cherished for years to come. This artist on Etsy is clearly very talented and has many of her drawings available to view on her shop.
4. Photo Puzzle
For the puzzle-loving grandparent in your lives, this personalized picture puzzle would be a treasure. Some great features about this gift are that it comes in a tin that also has the same picture on it and the puzzle can be varying degrees of difficulty. It would be fun to get an easier version and the grandparents can complete it with their grandchildren on Christmas morning!
