Top 5 Christmas Gift Ideas for Grandparents

Grandparents, with a lifetime of experiences and charming stories are very important individuals in your life. The Christmas holidays are the perfect time to show how much you care about them. If you find it tricky to choose gifts for them, let me give you some ideas.

1. Digital Photo Frames
Digital photo frames that can be used to show off your family pictures or evoke fond memories are special gifts for your loving grandparents. Start collecting and pre-loading pictures of the family, including past photos from important occasions like birthdays, graduation day and more. Take time visiting BestBuy.com to find the most appropriate devices. At this online store there are a wide range of digital frames with large crystal clear displays up to 11 inches, room for up to 6,000 photos and even Wi-Fi capabilities at the best possible prices. Find stunning savings plus free shipping with a suitable Best Buy.

2. Personalized Calendars
A fun and creative gift for your grandparents is a personalized calendar. You have many options to make your own one. You can find some sites that allow you to personalize the days with photos and text and pre-print the special occasions of your family such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. directly onto the calendar. Otherwise, you can purchase a blank calendar and have your kids decorate with a well-chosen selection of family photos or write heartfelt messages to their grandparents on calendar pages.

3. Winter Accessories
A meaningful gift for your grandparents around the Christmas holidays is winter accessories. Choose stylish or fashionable accessories for them based on your observations of their favorite colors and styles. You are going to surprise them if your gifts suit their tastes. Great gifts for grandmother are cashmere scarves, handbags, purses and the like. For grandfather, opt for hats, silk neckties, or cufflinks that reflect his personal style.

4. Winter Throws
A wonderful gift for your grandparents in the dreary and cold winter season is a winter throw. You can have winter throws personalized with photos and names as well as meaningful slogans, quotes and poems. This gift not only keeps the chill out but also brings great comfort for them. Colorful throws can cozy up their rooms and brighten up dull winter days. You can find warm and beautiful throws in various colors and the hottest styles on sale at many online stores.

5. Gift baskets
Around the Christmas holidays, offerings of food and drink are made traditionally as a gift for your loved ones. Fruit baskets wrapped with a festive ribbon and an attached gift card or gift baskets arranged tastefully with coffee, tea and cookies are perfect choices. It is very sweet of you to fill the baskets with a variety of coffee or tea flavors if your grandparents like them. Many of the best types of gift baskets are available from Overstock. I hope that the fun and practical gift ideas mentioned above will help you express your warmest thanks to your beloved grandparents on this special occasion.

Watching Movies & Listening To Music Has Never Been Better- Kidz Gear Wired Headphones for Kids

With 3 girls all wanting to watch their own movies, listen to their own music and play their own video games, our house can get really noisy at times! One of my goals this year for Christmas was to make sure that each of our girls got their very own pair of headphones! This way they can not fight over who’s is who’s and they can all listen to what ever they want with out the others interfering with their show or game! This would also make for more quiet time in our house and car for mommy!

Kidz Gear Head Phones Review

Kidz Gear offers these great sounding headphones with adjustable volume control right on the headphones as well as adjustable head straps to fit any size child’s head.

A good friend of mine started selling Thirty One Gifts and I now have a even larger collection of bags! But they are super cute, durable and go with just about everything!

For the month of December for every $31 you spend grab a Holiday “Holi-Buy” for only $5! Choose from the Thermal Tote, Timeless Wristlet, Cinch Sac, Mini Utility Bin, or Timeless Beauty Bag. These would make great Christmas gifts!
