Attention, everyone! You have exactly 9 days until Father’s Day (which falls on June 16 this year). So if you haven’t figured out how to show the fathers in your life how much you care about them, now is the time to figure it out. We know how difficult it can be to find the right present. To make the task a little easier, we’ve assembled a list of gifts for grandfathers. Maybe you’ll find the perfect present idea on the list, or perhaps reading through these suggestions will give you some inspiration. Either way, scroll down to get the ball rolling.
Gifts for Grandfathers
Does your grandfather often seem stressed? Would you like to help him relax and kick his feet up? Consider buying him a comforting present, such as a pair of slippers, a cozy blanket, or pajamas. You might also find it helpful to think about how your grandfather prefers to relax. If he enjoys movies, consider buying him a DVD or a gift card to a local movie theater. If he enjoys reading, buy him a new book or a bookmark.
If your grandpa says he doesn’t need anything every time his birthday rolls around, consider giving him a gift he’ll definitely use: food! Purchase a specialty version of one of his favorite treats, such as a nut sampler, gourmet sausages, specialty coffee, or fine chocolates. Or, you could treat him to a meal out on the town.
Look to your grandpa’s hobbies for inspiration. What does he like to do in his spare time? Does he enjoy gardening, grilling, watching the birds in his backyard, fishing, golfing, reading, or writing? Whatever his interests, you can find a gift that suits them.
Is your grandpa up to speed on the latest technology? Or perhaps he simply wishes he was? Either way, you could treat him to some new-fangled technology this Father’s Day. You could buy him a Google Home Smart Speaker and watch him marvel over the home assistant’s abilities. Or perhaps after years of untangling the cords of his earbuds, he’d appreciate some Apple EarPods. If he’s often on the go, he could certainly make use of an external phone charger.
If your grandfather lives in a small space or simply prefers to live minimally, don’t give him a gift that will add clutter to his home. Instead, consider treating him to an experience. Whether you buy him tickets to a baseball game, join him on a round of golf, or accompany him to the theater, you’ll enjoy some quality time together.
Finally, especially if young children are involved in the giving of this Father’s Day present, consider making a gift for your grandfather. It doesn’t need to be perfect, so don’t worry if you’re not an artist or a craftsman. It’s the thought that counts! You could make a piece of art, bake a cake, write a poem, decorate a picture frame, or simply create a card for the occasion.
Of course, our list of gifts of grandfathers can also be used for the fathers in your life. They may not be grandfathers, but they’re pretty grand too!
