Fabulous Gift Ideas for Grandparents and Parents

Name Vertical Bar Necklace– I don't know any grandmothers or mothers that wouldn't love this gift to show off the names of their kids or grandkids!

Personalized Heart Map– This is such a sweet gift to share with any parent or grandparent that lives far away but needs a reminder of how much you love them.

Collapsible Crates– Let's face it, parents are always toting things around for their kids.  These collapsible crates are sturdy enough to hold things still in a trunk and light enough to carry around as needed.  It's also perfect for loading grandparents up with necessities when they want to spend time with their grandkids :) I love that they lay flat for easy storage when you aren't using them!

Kid Quote Custom Wall Art– I have to admit it–this is one of the best gift ideas for grandparents and parents I have ever seen.  You know all those HILARIOUS things your kids say?!  Now you can have their adorable quotes turned into art.  A perfect gift for proud grandparents and parents alike!

Roomba Robotic Vacuum Cleaner– After wanting one of these FOR YEARS, I finally bought one on Amazon Prime Day. And it's every bit as fabulous as I thought it would be. The fact that my house is getting vacuumed while I am doing something else is a SOLID win in my book. If you have young kids and/or pets (we have both), put this on the VERY TOP of your Christmas wish list this year. And even if your adult parents don't have to clean up after you anymore, they will appreciate not having to vacuum as often (especially when the grandkids visit)!


Customized Photo Calendar– Everyone needs a calendar, so why not create a beautiful calendar full of fabulous family photos for your loved one?

Be Present Box– I'll admit it.  I spend too much time on my smartphone, as do many parents and grandparents.  Remind them to be present and spend time with family by giving them this gorgeous “be present” box to put their phones in :)

Gallery Monogram Pillow– I don't think parents and grandparents love anything more than seeing their favorite photos of their kids/grandkids.  And now you can have their favorite photos printed on a pillow for them!

Mother & Daughter Letter Book Set– This letter book set is meant for mothers and daughters to share.  It is a nostalgic set of 40 cards are meant to be sent, shared and treasured until the very last envelope is sealed. There are hundreds of personal prompts that encourage you to share bits of your personality that family otherwise wouldn't see. Once you finish them, the cards find their way back into the secret pockets of the book. This book is a fabulous way to honor your bond with your mother.  So SWEET!

Wood Sign for Grandmother– I LOVE this custom sign for grandmothers!  You can customize it so that it displays whatever term of endearment your kids call their grandmother.

Fleece Photo Blanket– A warm and cozy blanket with family photos on it…need I say more?!

Personalized Canoe Family Print– Now this is one of my absolute favorite gift ideas for grandparents and parents I have ever seen. A colorful cast of characters custom-designed to look like your family paddles along in a cozy canoe built for 2-14. You can choose hair and skin color to match your family and even your family pet can join you!

Awesome Grandpa T-Shirt– What awesome granddad wouldn't love this shirt?  It's one of the cutest I have seen!

Easy Change Artwork Frame– These super clever easy change artwork frames allow parents and grandparents to display the endless works of art from their little ones!  It's easy to change the art out as often as the artists in the family create it–just open the door and slide the new picture into the front pocket. Each frame also includes a compartment behind the picture to store about 50 more pictures!  No more cluttered refrigerators with magnets and artwork!

Blue Apron Gift Card– I'm not sure anything says “I love you” better than having the ingredients for full meals delivered to someone who loves to cook, but doesn't always have time to grocery shop for the perfect ingredients.  You can purchase 2-person or family meals and have them delivered for 1 week, 2 weeks or 4 weeks.  This is one of my favorite gift ideas for grandparents and parents (hint, hint–if any of my loved ones are reading this, I would LOVE this for Christmas)!

Grandparent Mug Set– These are hands down the most gorgeous grandparent mugs I have ever seen.  There is no doubt the recipients of these mugs will feel extra special!

  1. Those mugs are really cool! My grandparents will definitely love it! The gallery monogram pillow is very lovely. These are great ideas Tasha. Thanks for sharing them. I made my own list of gift ideas for seniors too and I put emphasis on giving practical gifts like smartphones, tablets, key finder or talking alarm clock. Seniors are actually more receptive to technologies now. Besides, these gadgets can make their lives easier and can keep them safe too.
