How to pick the best Christmas gift for grandparents

Still stumped about what to get your grandparents for Christmas? Here are a few tips:

  • Most grandparents have enough trinkets, candles and other “stuff,” so try not to overload their house with more of it this holiday season.
  • Take your grandparents’ diet into consideration if gifting food items.
  • Some grandparents don’t want homewares, as they’re tired of cleaning them and finding somewhere to store them, unless you opt for one that cleans itself or is a replacement for an existing one.
  • Overall, most grandparents tend to be happy with anything related to their grandchildren. Photo gifts, artwork made by the kids and other sentimental gifts are usually big hits.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask what they want or could use. Maybe they’ll tell you they just want you to visit more often, or maybe they have something specific in mind that they need.

What can I get grandparents who have everything?

Most grandparents don’t want or need more stuff to clutter their homes, and many of them simply buy whatever it is that they need or want for themselves. If this is the case for you, try these unique gift ideas for grandparents:

  • The gift of your time. Take them somewhere for a day or weekend trip, or commit to regular visits throughout the year.
  • A donation made in their name to church or a charity.
  • Food baskets full of their favorite goodies and necessities, so they don’t have to worry about grocery shopping for a while.
  • Gas or grocery card.
  • Photo or homemade gifts.

What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for grandparents?

Making a gift for your grandma or grandpa is a safe way to go, since most grandparents would prefer something sentimental, anyway.

  • Photo gifts. Make your own, or use a site like VistaPrint to create beautiful photo collages, blankets, mugs, calendars and more.
  • Artwork made by the kids. Have the younger grandchildren make original artwork for Gram and Pap and have it framed for them.
  • Photo clock with large numbers. Create a wall clock using a family photo so they can be reminded of their loved ones when they check the time. Bonus points for large numbers that they can easily read from far away.
  • His-and-hers coffee mugs. Are your grandparents big coffee or tea drinkers? Make them a cute pair of his and hers personalized mugs.
