10 Simple gifts for Grandparents

gifts for Grandparents wall artGrandparents have been there for all of life’s incredible milestones. When it’s time for gift giving, you can keep it simple while still gifting something special. Check out a few of these ideas for simple gifts for grandparents:

  1. Framed Artwork – the kid kind. Let your child go all out making a special gift for Grandma, then frame it in a keepsake frame or wall art cabinet. She might get plenty of artwork throughout the year, but this will make it even more special.
  2. The gift of nature. A potted orchid, rosemary topiary or indoor bulb kit is a wonderful gift to give the grandparents – one that lasts well beyond the special day.
  3. A Family Time Coupon Book – Grandma and Grandpa love it when all the family gathers, but with the hustle and bustle of today, it’s hard to corral everyone together. Put together a “coupon book” of vouchers they can use to “cash in” for a family dinner or outing.
  4. Personalized Gifts – From tree ornaments to beach chairs, key rings to wall art, you can definitely find a gift perfect for the grandparents on your list.
  5. Puzzled for their gift? A puzzle is a great gift because a puzzle often means time together. Pull up a chair and work on it with them.

  7. A family tree – paint a simplistic (or intricate!) tree with branches for each family member on a canvas. This is one way to remind them of how many people cherish them.
  8. Go practical, but special. A personalized checkbook cover is a great gift for grandparents, and many can be personalized.
  9. Photo Gifts – What grandparent wouldn’t love to show off their gorgeous grandkids through photo jewelry, office products, or home décor?

Homemade treats. You can’t make everyone an over-the-top gift basket or personalized bakeware filled with homemade treats, but you could spend a little time on one for Grandma and Grandpa – go for it!
