How To Pick The Perfect Christmas Gift For Grandpa

If shopping for the Man who has everything is tough, doing the same for the Grandfather who has everything is almost impossible. They’ve probably had years of accumulating everything they actually need, and tons of Birthdays, Christmas, Father’s Days, Anniversaries, and other occasions that will cover the rest of the typical gifting options. So given all that, how do you find the perfect gift for Grandpa?

Well, the good news is, this problem isn’t unique to you or your Grandpa - so many people have struggled with this question we’ve done a ton of painstaking research to help you out. Our guide has featured all sorts of awesome gift ideas for Grandpa listed above, and if you’re still looking for ideas we have some tips below!

Our Gift Idea Brainstorming Basics

There are some time tested strategies for coming up with gift ideas we present (no pun intended) to you below. The categories and items above should help you get the creative juices flowing, but these tips can help take your gifting game to the next level:

1) Think about his hobbies and passions…

Grandpas usually have lots of hobbies, especially if they’re retired. From fishing, to golfing, to woodworking, and more, these activities usually go hand in hand with lots of accessories and other items that are good options at Christmas time.

2) What would he love, but never buy for himself…

Most Grandpas are a little old school when it comes to budgets and splurging. Odds are good there are things that catch his eye but he’d never actually go out of his way to buy because they’re impractical or not strictly necessary. Christmas is an opportunity for you to help him indulge!

3) Is there anything you can make him by hand…

From our earliest days in school, Grandpas love to get hand made cards, drawings, and other items crafted by their loving kids and grandkids. This continues to hold true once you outgrow the finger paints, but we seldom take the time to do so, and opt instead for store bought items. If you have a creative hobby, consider making him something from the heart this year.

4) Check with his friends… Asking his friends and other members of the family for ideas isn’t cheating! Sometimes he’ll mention something he’d love to have in passing when you aren’t around, and asking around is one way to get that info.

Our Time Tested Gifting Principles

Beyond the brainstorming basics, there are a few guiding principles you should keep in mind:

  1. Price isn’t everything - sometimes the best gifts are handmade, inexpensive, or free.
  2. Practical isn’t always best - treating him to something she may not buy for himself is always a good idea.
  3. Give from the heart - something that holds deeper meaning for him is sure to leave a lasting impression.
  4. Be inventive - truly unique and creative gifts mean thinking outside the box.
