Perfect for a Picnic
One of the best grandparent gift baskets from grandkids are picnic baskets. Who doesn’t love a good picnic? While some grandparents may not want to go out and lay a blanket on the ground for a meal, that doesn’t mean you can’t give them a great picnic gift basket! Besides, if your grandparents love being outdoors, this could be a wonderful gift. For this type of gift, we love the idea of filling a traditional picnic basket with an assortment of picnic accessories. For example, you could include cutlery, napkins, a wine bottle opener, beverage glasses. Make it really special with a personalized Picnic Cooler Set that includes all of these essentials in a custom cooler.
Take it a step further. Add in their favorite beverage, such as lemonade, wine, beer, or soda. Additionally, you could throw in a few snacks, such as cheese and crackers, deli meats, and maybe a potato or macaroni salad. Beyond a picnic basket, this idea could include a picnic blanket for the table, tea bags, reusable ice cubes, and anything else that feels appropriate.
Summer Fun Picnic Appreciation Gift Basket
Are the holidays coming up? Especially for young kids, it may be a fun idea to help them put together a holiday-themed gift basket. This basket could include, for example, a handmade Christmas ornament or a hand-painted Thanksgiving decoration. Other fun ideas could be a family picture in a beautiful holiday frame, or perhaps a personalized holiday wine glass, a monogrammed Santa hat, or delicious holiday truffles!

When it comes to gifts for grandparents, most grandparents adore the recognition that they are a “great grandparent,” even if they aren’t a great-grandparent! This could be a fun opportunity for finding all the grandparent-themed gifts, such as “#1 Grandpa” T-shirts and “Best Grandma Ever” mugs. You could even put together a little basket with a grandparent themed shirt, mug, and a photo of you with each other in a heartwarming grandparent-themed frame.
Personalized Memories Parchment Frame
Unique Wall Decor
Grandmothers oftentimes love to decorate their homes with all kinds of art regarding their families. Whether this art is handmade by a grandchild, or it is a beautiful family photo frame, these pieces of wall decor quickly become heartwarming treasures. If younger children would like to give their grandparents a type of homemade decor, they have a few options. Kids could make their own picture frame out of painted construction paper, cardboard, or popsicle sticks (and easily decorated with drawings or glued-on ornaments). Include a sweet picture of themselves or their family and it’s bound to be a hit! Or, consider a custom, Personalized Memories Parchment Frame or a Personalized Grandma Photo Frame available in eight different designs.
For adult grandchildren, you will likely be looking for something classy and touching. Aside from family photo frames or a personalized grandparent-themed print with loving quotes, you could consider purchasing a canvas print with a depiction of your family tree!

Do your grandparents have a sweet tooth? If so, it may be a fun idea to give them a gift basket of sweets! We all know we should cut back on our sweets and avoid our cravings, but every once in a while, it’s fine to indulge. Treat your grandparents to a sugary delight with perhaps a homemade dessert or even homemade candy if you enjoy cooking or find their favorite dessert at the store. A gift like a Sweet Cravings Candy Gift Box will certainly bring a smile to your grandparents’ faces.
For kids, a fun gift idea could be cookies! Whether these cookies are from a bakery or homemade, they are sure to be well-received! You could choose a cookie bouquet gift basket, or even have fun with the kids in the kitchen. Kids may especially enjoy decorating sugar cookies to feel more involved with making the cookies just right for Grandma and Grandpa.
If you are a DIYer, you may want to push up your sleeves and try your hand at some homemade pottery! There are plenty of craft and pottery shops with lessons and classes for molding your very own pottery. If that’s not your thing, your kids and their grandparents will love a set of monogrammed mason jar mugs that are perfect for lemonade on the back porch or for delighting guests at a casual dinner or barbeque.
Personalized Old Fashioned Drinking Glasses
You can’t go wrong with a good snack basket! Everyone loves to snack, and snacks are also easily customized for individual preferences. Whether sweet or savory, you can certainly find something your grandparents will enjoy! However, if you are wondering whether snacks qualify as a good present, we have great news for you. Snacks can be a wonderful gift; they merely need to be presented tastefully and with care.
For that reason, we think that a snack gift basket would be a great idea, whether for chocolates, gourmet nuts, candies, or even popcorn. All of these snack gift basket ideas are packaged to impress with a wide variety of options, textures, and flavors! To make it even more fun for kids, they could pick out the snacks themselves at the store and help assemble their own basket!
Finally, a great idea for your grandparents could be a gift of their favorite beverage. Whether this beverage involves alcohol, such as wine, beer, hard liquor, and wine coolers, or non-alcoholic options, you can play up the gift to make it memorable. For example, you could choose a wine and chocolate gift basket or a gift certificate for a wine tasting or something similar.
If alcohol isn’t their cup of tea, there’s always tea –or coffee or cocoa – depending on what they prefer most. These beverages make great gift baskets, especially when combined with cookies, coffee syrups, biscotti, and more! What a fun way to recognize something they enjoy and show them how much you care. This type of non-alcoholic gift can be easily put together with kids as well for a fun surprise for the grandparents.

It can be a challenge to find what feels like the perfect gifts for grandparents. There’s a special bond between grandparents and grandchildren, and it can be difficult to find a gift that captures the relationship. However, sometimes the best gifts are the ones that simply show you’re thinking of them and that you love them. Great gifts are the ones showing you know what the recipient enjoys.
