The Top 5 Christmas Gifts for Grandpa

Updated on November 23, 2010

Give him a Frameful of Memories!

Kodak EasyShare 8-inch Digital Picture Frame

What better way to show Grandpa how much he’s loved than by giving him a frame full of memories. Kodak has always been the name to rely on when it comes to easy to use, durable photographic products and this frame is no exception. Just slot in your memory card and give him a ‘ready to go’ slideshow for his mantlepiece. If he’s a keen photographer then he can choose to update the photos himself or you can renew them each time you visit. This really is a superbly priced quality gift that just keeps on giving!

Give Him a Toolbox of Treats

A Toolbox of Treats Gift Tote from Art of Appreciation Gift Baskets

This is a wonderful way to thank Grandpa for everything he’s does and all that he continues to do. Printed to look like his old faithful toolbox, the box contains a plethora of pleasure for the taste buds, including Beef Salami, Chocolate Espresso Cake, Gourmet Chocolate Chip Cookies and Butterscotch Candy. Each gift box is hand wrapped and includes a lovely card, printed with your own personal greeting. Guaranteed to stop him tinkering in the toolshed for a while!

Give Him a Cap Full of Fun

The Older I Get, The Better I Was Baseball Cap

Providing Grandpa has a sense of humor about getting older, then he’ll just love this embroidered denim cap that fits most sizes of head, thanks to its adjustable strap. An affordable gift for grandchildren to buy at Christmas or Birthday time, this great cap makes a superb gift for those who are, to quote the manufacturers, “slightly over the hill, but still active athletes”.

Keep Him Cosy All Year Round

Grandfather Sofa Throw Blanket

I love the simplicity of this gift and, for Grandpas who are housebound, then it’s an especially great way to show how much you care. Offering beautifully made, practical warmth for indoor or outdoor use, the generously sized blanket is extremely easy to care for, being made from 100% cotton. The wording on it reads “Grandfather, The Foundation of our family ...Thank you for your precious time, unconditional love and guidance”. A matching Grandmother Sofa throw blanket is also available. These have made my top 5 as they are great quality and make a unique and affordable keepsake gift.

Pass Him the Remote!

Big Button Remote Control

A perfect gift choice for a sight challenged or arthritic elderly grandparent. It’s easy to set-up (although you may want to do that for them) and its chunky keys make it a doddle for even the most non-cooperative of fingers to use. This means that changing the TV channels or controlling a DVD player is no longer frustrating and even becomes fun again. I’ve selected this Sony model, as it's better made than many cheaper big button remotes and works with a greater number of TV and DVD models, which is all important.
