Gifts for Grandpa

Updated on December 27, 2014

Gift Ideas for Grandpas

Grandpas play influential roles in the lives of their grandchildren, yet they always seem to walk in the shadows of grandmothers. It's not that they're loved any less, it's just that grandmas are cute and always smell so sweet, have an endless supply of fresh baked goodies ready to go and offer just the right words of encouragement, cheer and support. Like perfect gentlemen, grandpas graciously sit back and let grandmothers have the spotlight. They patiently wait their turn for hugs and kisses and cheerfully reinforce just how special those grandmas are with kind words and gestures. So this time around, make sure to give grandpa a front row seat with one of these wonderful gift ideas. They're perfect for any occasion and anytime of year.

Get the beautiful frame above at Amazon.com

A pocket watch is a thoughtful and long lasting gift that any grandpa would be happy to receive. It's a timepiece of distinction that offers grandpa that classic look of elegance. For a personal touch, make sure to have the pocket watch engraved with a special message.

Grandfather Clock

Spoil grandpa with a most fitting gift: a grandfather clock. Not only will he feel spoiled to no end, but a clock such as this makes a beautiful addition to any room and is a wonderful family heirloom.

Grandpas don't ever expect much, so this will be quite a gift ;)

Oh, ever wonder why a grandfather clock is so tall?

Its height is used to hold the long pendulum and weights.

That's a bit of useless knowledge that grandpa would love to hear. Remember to tell him when you give him this great gift.

And of course, don't forget to go visit grandpa and listen to his stories, or even to his little every day happenings.

Grandpa Picture Frame

Visit your local photo shop or go online to find a wide selection of picture frames that boast his famous title, Grandpa! This gift will help him cherish those special memories and keep the grand-kids close at heart.

100 Photographs That Changed the World

Surprise and delight grandpa with a unique coffee table book from the publishers of Life Magazine.

The 100 images in this book all capture unforgettable moments that caused the world to change.

He'll enjoy taking a walk through time and conversing about important world events. What wouldn't I give to be able to sit by my grandfather's side listening to those stories!

Set of World War II Coins

Set of World War II Coins

During the time of World War II, the U.S. Mint was forced to produce coins using unusual metals such as the famous 1943 steel pennies or nickels minted with only 35% silver.

Look online for wonderful World War II coin gift sets at very affordable prices.

The Nicest Thing about Grandpas

Is that they are one person separated (poor old dad!) from being the disciplinarian. They love to spoil just as much as grandma. So on that special occasion, let him know how important he really is with a wonderful gift like those above.

Fun with Grandma and Grandpa

These two are so adorable! That's one of the reasons we love our grandparents!

What do you think is the best gift for grandpa?

Thanks for Stopping By!

      Thank you for a really useful lens on Grandpa gifts. I'm often at a loss about what to get them mainly because I think they already have everything.
