The second your parents become grandparents, you start searching for the best gifts for grandparents. They’re going to want to proudly wear anything that says Grandma or Grandpa on it. They’re also going to want a billion photos of your baby. Here are 10 perfect gifts for grandparents whether it’s their first grandchild or the tenth!
1. Glamma Pillow for Glamorous Grandmas
There’s a new trend of grandmas that are too glamorous to be called Grandma. So they’re called Glammas!
If your mom or mother-in-law is a grandma who refuses to be “grandma” this is for her. Of course, all grandmas love throw pillows. I think my mom has a collection she rotates throughout the year. I’m sure she’s not alone. Add to grandma’s collection with this trendy throw pillow.
2. Customizable I Love Grandma Photo Mug
Upload a photo of your child on one side. The other side says “I Love Grandma.” It’s completely customizable so if your mom prefers to be called something else like Nana or Meemaw, you can change that too! I’m pretty sure my mom has at least six or seven mugs with Toot’s face on them.
3. Letters To My Grandchild
Letters to My Grandchild is a paper time capsule. I got one for my mom and my mother in law for Christmas last year and told them they could write in it whenever they want and give it to Toot when she’s older. You can do 16th, 18th, 21st birthday or for graduation.
Each page looks like an envelope and folds out into a full-size letter. There are 10 prompts and two blank letters to write anything. The prompts include “When your mother/father was young…” and “One positive change in the world I have witnessed is…”
4. Custom Baby or Kids Photo Watch
Grandparents love to show off photos of their grandkids. It’s like a law. Giving your mom or dad a watch with your child’s photo on it would just make it ten times easier.
Grandpa is going to be just waiting on edge for someone to ask him for the time so he can shove his watch in their face. And a watch with your little one’s photo is right there on Grandma’s wrist anytime she needs a smile.
5. Rose Hand Print Painting
This is a DIY Painting that I did for my mom and mother in law for Mother’s Day. All you need is canvas panels, paint, and your baby’s hand.
I let Toot pick out the colors for each one. I put the paint bottles in front of her and asked her to pick a color for Nana and Grandma. She picked Nana’s favorite color!
Plop your baby’s handprint in the middle of the canvas and turn it into a rose. Then add your message around it or at the top like I did.
6. Couples Mugs
How cute are these mugs? Like seriously. Grandma and Grandpa can toast their morning coffee to their amazing grandkids. Couples mugs are the new friendship necklaces.
7. Engraved Hammer for Grandpa
Shhh… Don’t tell my dad I’m getting this for him for Christmas. Because this engraved grandpa hammer is perfect. It also comes in many other variations of grandpa such as Papa, Pop Pop, Paw Paw, and it also comes in Dad. It’s actually a real hammer so it’s also useful.
8. Custom Baby Photo Necklace
I got my mom a photo necklace for Mother’s Day, and she loves it. You can add your own baby or child’s photo to many different necklace styles. It’s the perfect size. It’s not too big and gaudy, but it’s still big enough to see the photo.

10. Custom Baby or Kids Photo Wallet
People used to carry around their kids’ photos in their wallets. But now we have phones that carry a billion photos. You know who remembers wallet sized photos? GRANDPARENTS.
Go ahead and get them a wallet with your child’s photo already printed on it! Anytime grandma is pulling out her money she can show off her gorgeous grandbabies.
