Gift Ideas for Grandfathers
- Sentimental gifts pay honor to the patriarch in the family. A very touching sentimental gift idea is a researched copy of your grandfather's genealogy that is put together in a nice notebook or a copy of your grandfather's family crest matted and framed. Another sentimental gift idea is putting together a scrapbook of his life or recording a DVD of each of his family members talking about him, how important he is and what they think is special about him. If you have the money to splurge, you can send grandfather on a trip to a special place in his past.
Hobby and Recreation Gifts
- Most grandfathers have hobbies. Whether it's cigar smoking, gathering war memorabilia, old coins or or other collectibles, playing cards or woodworking, painting, gardening, reading, watching classical movies or cooking, tap into your grandfather's hobby and give him a gift that show him you acknowledge and support his interests. Ideas include how-to videos and books, new equipment, a piece to add to his collection, magazine subscriptions and more. Other recreation ideas include easy to operate cameras and video cameras and sporting equipment.
- Most men love to eat and grandfathers are no exceptions. Handmade food gifts are always warmly received as are subscriptions to cake-of-the-month or fruit-of-the-month clubs, restaurant and coffee shop gift cards, gift baskets full of his favorite coffees, chocolates and nuts. Other food ideas include hiring someone to come in to cook for him or prepaid food delivery services from a local diner and/or grocery store.
