Christmas is on its merry way again, and if you’re finding that long list of family & friends to buy for a bit daunting, we’re here to help!
I don’t know about you, but my Grandparents are some of the hardest people to find a gift for, because according to them they don’t want or need anything! If Grandpa needs to cut back on his yearly intake of Scorched Almonds, and if Nana is still drowning in last year's hand cream haul, then here are some Christmas gift ideas for Grandparents to kickstart your Christmas shopping this silly season…
1. A special plant or fruit tree
If your Grandparents love their garden, a fruit tree or beautiful new plant is a lovely Christmas gift! It will remind them of you every time they look at it, and if it fruits or flowers, then this is a gift that keeps on giving.
2. A photo book
I’ve found you a good reason to get those photos off your phone; make Grandma & Grandad a photo book! This will be cherished and looked at over and over again, you know how Grandma likes to show off the kids & grandkids when her friends come over for a cuppa!
3. A fluffy blanket for the couch
Now that they finally have Netflix figured out (even though Nana’s still miffed that Coronation Street isn’t on there), why not encourage their TV addiction even more with a brand new fluffy blanket to keep them comfy on the sofa? They deserve lots of down time, and the cosier the better! A big one to share, or one each in their favorite colours, they will really appreciate this gift.
4. An updated family photo
Gather the troops (in their best Grandma-approved outfits), go somewhere picturesque (the beach, the park, or even just the backyard), get your camera with a self timer set up, and update that family photo! Get it printed, put it in a frame, and we guarantee this will be a much-loved Christmas gift! Handy hint: take quite a few, because you know there’s always someone blinking!
5. A family weekend away
No need for the box and wrapping paper, give Nana & Grandad the gift of an unforgettable experience. Pick Grandma & Grandad up & get the family together for a weekend at the beach, farm or lake, with a holiday home to fit the whole crew! Quality time with their kids, grandkids, and great grandkids is the best gift they could ever receive - remember to pack Grandad’s favourite whiskey, Granny’s pick of the board games, and take lots of photos!
6. A Gift Box
I couldn’t possibly inspire you with these Christmas gifts for Grandparents without mentioning our amazing gift boxes!
