Grandparents Gifts

Contributor post by Opal from Apron Strings Owl Lady 

What do you give to established persons such as grand parents for a special gift, birthday or holiday? They seem to have everything they want already – or maybe you’ve sent a little spy to ask them what they want this year, or perhaps need?

Tell us your stories, we want to hear, about the special grand parents and what you have for them this year! I’d love to hear about the – lovely, useful, whimsical or other – grandparent gifts you have in your shop, those you’ve given in the past, and why you think they are the best!

 Grandparents usually do an extraordinary amount of hosting family gatherings during the Holiday season! Drinks and food galore, there are usually accidents! Take along a set of fun tartan plaid cocktail napkins, as a hostess gift, so everyone has a place to set their beverage down without ruining the furniture!

 Grandparents!

I had a Grandfather when I was very small(under 5). He was mostly in the hospital so I barely remember him.
But who I consider Grandparents Are My Children’s Grandparents! MY PARENTS. Pearlsvintagebypam began as a TRIBUTE to MY Mother PEARL.

 This is a great topic and dear to my heart. Our family has traveled around a lot and our children have missed out on so many Christmases and Birthdays with grandparents that it breaks my heart. But we have relied heavily on video and old-fashioned cards in the mail.

I’ve designed a printable DIY gift from grandkids to grandma that even the youngest ones can contribute to. Our signs read: ‘Some of my favorite people call me Grandma’ and look great as is with a black chalkboard-style background with white and blue text and border. But it looks even better when grandkids add their special touch of coloring magic. Then grandma will know her grandchild really put her heart and soul into that gift. Our printable package includes a 5×7 file for creating a coloring postcard, an 8×10 sign, or a 14×18 inch poster that all the grandkids can help color.

We also have this sign for Grandpa, and soon to come: Grandmother, Grandfather, Oma, Opa, Abuela, Abuelo, Nana, Papa, Mamie, Papie, and more!

Is Grandpa a railroad collector? This is a Rock Island Railroad red globe lantern from the 1920s. In very good condition and sure to please those that love the stories and memorabilia of railroads.

Jim’s great-grandfather Pappy Grote was an engineer on the Chicago, Elgin, Aurora line in the late 20s and 30s. His grandfather Grote worked at the Elgin Watch Factory, so Jimmy would spend his time with Grandpa Grote walking to Lord’s Park in Elgin listening to him tell stories of the railroads. One of Jim’s favorite stories was during the depression, Grandma Ruby and Great Grandma Lizzie would bring soup and bread to the rail lines to feed the men who traveled the rails looking for work. And how Pappy would try to talk them out of doing it for their own safety, but they refused. Pappy ended up adding Lizzie’s homemade cookies to the food stuffs and walked down there every evening to keep them safe. Ends up, that Pappy would end up staying and talking to the men while Lizzie and Ruby made their way back home.

Jim always drifts towards anything doing with railroads or watches. He loved his grandparents and misses them. He does his very best to be a good grandpa to his 13 grandbabies. He knows that they will also remember the stories and their life with Papa.

Stock lane – me too yes on the ice cream machine, my siblings and I would fight on who could crank the fastest.

I was raised by my grandparents and parents in a wonderful large extended family. I learned all about birds from my grandmother. This would make a wonderful gift to a grandparent who appreciates handmade items and one of a kind gifts.

 Grandparents are so special in our lives. My Grandma loved to watch the birds, then my Mom did, and now so do I love Humming-birds. I love to watch them all, but these little creatures are so delicate and beautiful. Maybe Grandma, or Grandpa can’t see the birds outside so well anymore. Why not give them a beautiful painting?

 Granny deserves an exclusive embroidery on soft eco-fabric made especially for her! These colorful and reach embroidery threads would delight your beloved grandmom for sure…All her friends would ask where did she get this. And she will be proud her grandchildren gave her such a unique gift with lots of love and care!)

Ukrainian ethnic embroidery is a traditional way to show love, to protect relatives from negative things and just to feel that someone cares much for you!

 Grandparents in our family are the ones who take the time to play games with the younger ones. The time spent together over a board game or a game of Yahtzee is always very special with lots of laughs. What better way to remember these times than a set of dice soaps?

 I think this pillow cover will be a perfect gift for a grandmother who loves roses. Most grandparents like gardening and roses happen to be their favourite flower so this I believe would be a fitting gift this Christmas or Birthday. What’s also great about this pillow cover is that these roses will never wilt. It is also padded and quilted hence extra comfort. It is a pillow cover for colour, charm and comfort.
