Finding the perfect Grandparents Gift is the most difficult aspect of the holidays for me. They either have everything they need or don’t want anything. Some don’t like trinkets and like gifts that can be used. Some love the trinkets. Not to mention that most of our family lives out of town so it also needs to be shippable.
Here are my tried and true Grandparents gift ideas. I started a fun tradition of gifting the grandparents coffee mugs that are festive and decorated with the kids handprints. I loved it so much that I made one for myself and they have become my favorite part of getting the holiday decorations out. Last year I hosted a brunch for my friends and had the amazing Clay a GO GO come and help us create one of a kind mugs, plates and ornaments. I’m super excited to plan this year’s brunch, it’s such a fun way to kick off the holiday season. You don’t need a friend with a kiln though, these mugs are easy to do at home.
Another grandparent gift that I’ve started to do is to make photo books of the last year. For the last two years, I’ve used Mixbook. Not only do they have a fantastic end product, their layouts are great and their user interface is super easy to use. How cute is our book from last year? PLUS, they always have a great Ebates offer. Do you use Ebates? Read WHY you should be here.
