Easter Gifts for Grandparents
For many families, Easter is a day for fun, family bonding, and, of course, plenty of candy. If your grandparents live close by, you know they’ll be thrilled to receive a visit from their grandkids bearing a gift. Even if your grandparents don’t live close enough for you to celebrate Easter all together, you can find a way to send them a token that lets them know you’re thinking of them on the holiday.
If you want them to know you care this Easter, but just aren’t sure what gift to go with, here are a few ideas to consider.
1. Homemade Easter Basket
You can find plenty of pre-made Easter baskets to buy, but making one yourself will both be more affordable and allow you the chance to fill it with items you know your grandparents like. Are they partial to a certain type of tea? Do you know their favorite candy or cookies? Do they like books by a certain author? Personalize the basket based on what they like so it will be that much more special to them.
2. Personalized Mugs
If your grandparents ever drink tea, coffee or hot chocolate, then being able to do so with a mug that provides a constant reminder of their grandkids will be a daily treat. You can buy personalized mugs that include any sayings or photos you want to include, or you can make your own at a pottery place for a gift that’s even more meaningful. Personalized mugs provide the benefit of being both functional and sentimental, which makes them a great gift choice.
3. Decorated Eggs
Decorated eggs are a pretty standard part of any Easter celebration. A few beautifully decorated eggs can serve as nice mementos of the day for grandparents. This is an especially nice gift coming from younger kids who can enjoy creating the craft and then have something nice to pass along to their grandparents when they’re done.
4. Bunny Slippers
Who doesn’t love comfy slippers? Some warm, comfortable bunny slippers make a great themed Easter present. Your grandparents will have something more comfortable to slip on and wear around the house and they’ll probably get a kick out of seeing the bunnies every time they look down.
5. Bunny Bookmark
Bunny bookmarks check all the right boxes for a grandparents’ gift. They’re cute, they’re easy to make, and they’re personal. These crafts from Martha Stewart are fun, while also being functional and giving your grandparents something to show off to their friends. Just look at the picture on the site – can’t you already see Grandma pulling it out to show off and giggle over with her bridge club?
Grandparents will usually be happy to get any token from a grandkid that shows you’re thinking of them, but if you can make it something thoughtful or fun, they’ll appreciate it that much more. So get to work and make this Easter that much more meaningful for the grandparents that do so much for you.
