Grandparent Gift Ideas from Grandkids
Finding the perfect gift for a grandparent can be challenging. Luckily, we’ve got grandparent gift ideas for multiple occasions, including gifts for soon-to-be grandparents!
Gifts for Grandparents for Any Occasion
Children ADORE their grandparents. Why not capture that love in a meaningful group video gift? Get each grandkid to share what they love most about their grandma or grandpa, a favorite memory with their grandparents, or how their grandparents have impacted their life. All the video clips can be easily combined into a touching final video that Grandma and Grandpa will treasure!
These video keepsakes make wonderful birthday or holiday gifts for grandparents. Before recording their video clip, kids can help decorate their backdrop with homemade birthday banners, streamers, and balloons and sing “Happy Birthday,” or use holiday decorations to spruce up their space, dress in their holiday best, and sing their favorite Christmas carols! Regardless of the occasion, Grandma and Grandpa will love to receive such a special and unique gift.
Homemade Gift Ideas for Grandparents from Grandchildren
Gifts made by grandchildren are full of love and show grandparents how much they’re appreciated. Let’s take a look at a few homemade gift ideas for grandparents from grandkids.
Personalized apron. Whether it’s for grilling or baking, an apron that features grandkids’ names, handprints in fabric paint, or drawings done in permanent marker will be a hit with Grandma and Grandpa. And kids will get a kick out of seeing their grandparents wear their creation!
Holiday gifts. A homemade Christmas ornament with a grandchild’s photo and their handwritten name and the date will be a gift that is cherished for years to come. Visiting Grandma and Grandpa on Eid? Have grandkids help make maamoul cookies for a sweet treat their grandparents will love. Celebrating Hanukkah? Children will be excited to make their grandparents candles for the menorah. Simply purchase sheets of beeswax and string or a DIY candle kit for this simple and thoughtful craft.
Photo Coasters. Grandma and Grandpa will love to see their grandkids’ smiling faces every time they put down their coffee or tea on a personalized coaster. To start, purchase white square tiles and have grandkids pick out their favorite photos of themselves. Print the photos on card stock, let kids use Mod Podge to coat the back, and place the photos on top of the tiles. Coat the front of the photos and, once they’re dry, stack and wrap them with a ribbon!

Fishing Gear. For the grandpa who always has a fishing rod in his hands, fill an insulated cooler with warm socks for chilly days, a thermos to keep drinks hot or cold, snacks to help pass the time, and a fishing lure that can be personalized with a special message from the grandkids. Let’s not forget an embroidered “World’s Best Grandpa” hat to keep the sun out of his eyes while he waits for a big one! Last but not least, let the grandkids offer to “help” Grandpa on his next fishing trip; he’s sure to appreciate the company!
Photo Calendar. A personalized calendar with photos of grandkids is a gift that grandfathers can enjoy all year long! Grandpa can be treated to different photos of his favorite little ones each month and be reminded of important family dates like birthdays, anniversaries, and more. Let kids pick their favorite pictures to include in the calendar; they’ll be so excited to see the finished product and give it to their grandpa!
Gifts for Soon-to-Be Grandparents
Expecting grandparents deserve love, too! Let’s take a look at a few gifts for soon-to-be grandparents.
Pregnancy Reveal Gifts. A wonderful gift for soon-to-be grandparents and a fun way to share pregnancy news is through a framed sonogram picture. Customize the frame with a message such as “Hello, Grandma & Grandpa!” or “Can’t wait to meet you, Grandma & Grandpa!” and include the baby’s due date so that grandparents can count down the days for the little one to arrive!
Alternatively, if a pregnancy announcement coincides with the holidays, parents can gift a Christmas ornament featuring their sonogram pic, due date, and a personalized message such as “Santa is promoting you to Grandma & Grandpa!”
Brag Book. What grandparent doesn’t like to show off photos of their grandkids? Gift a personalized picture album titled “Our Grandchildren” or “Grandma & Grandpa’s Brag Book” so that expecting grandparents can fill the album in with their favorite photos once the baby is born.
Whether you want to congratulate expecting grandparents, celebrate Grandpa’s birthday, or spend the holidays with Grandma, be sure to use these ideas to make their gift extra special!
