Practical Gifts

When you’re looking for a practical gift, don’t think bed sheets or pillow cases. Practical gifts should conjure up something fun. Think ice cream bowl, piggy bank, lunch boxes. What’s their favorite movie? Who’s their favorite cartoon character? That’s what your lunch box theme should be. Tie practical gifts into their favorite movie. Make it personal, too, by having their name on it. Kids love to feel like an adult, so another perfect practical gift? A kid's watch. Here's the perfect opportunity to teach them how to tell time.

Artsy Gift Baskets

Artsy gift baskets make great preschool graduation gift ideas from grandparents. You can get an assortment of Crayola crayons or a fun DIY jewelry set. Kids love to paint so a watercolor set would be fun. A gift basket with different color play dough will entertain them for hours.

Fun Gift Baskets

Turn them into little magicians, scientists, or detectives with gifts like magic kits, science kits, and spy kits. Kits where they can discover something are a blast for both boys and girls. Gift baskets like these provide layers of fun because they can build intricate games around them. Spy kits come with pretty nice gadgets like spy glasses, walkie talkies, and pens with invisible ink. Science kits teach the basis of chemistry with fun experiments that inspire scientific thinking. These children gift baskets for preschoolers make original preschool graduation gift ideas. While science kits teach, a magic kit screams fun. Kids get to learn how to make handkerchiefs disappear and play with magic wands. Magic kits may teach them a little bit of real magic, too.

Gift cards

gift cards for babies
By preschool, kids have usually figured out places they wish to visit over and over again. Anything that sells donuts, candy, or ice cream probably tops their list. Gift cards to places like Dunkin Donuts, Baskin Robbins, Mrs. Fields, or Cold Creamery make scrumptious preschool graduation gift ideas. Free ice cream for three months? Of course they’ll love it. One of our favorites, though, is a giftcard to a kid's museum. Kid's museum are one of the best inventions for kids. It's a tactile museum where they get to learn and play for hours. They get to climb, build, touch animals, learn about nature, learn about science, and run around until they're exhausted. It doesn't get any better than that.


Being a kid means eating candy, and kids will fall in love with any gift that involves candy. Finding out their favorite candy is key, of course. Then stuff the basket with oodles and oodles of similar choices. Or make a nice variety pack, which gives them a chance to try different types: hard candy, chewy candy, chocolates, candy canes, and more. Different colors and different shapes are key to creating a great candy selection. It'll be Halloween all over again.

Theme park season pass

This doesn’t have to be an expensive theme park. There are fantastic water parks that run just over the summer or smaller, local theme parks that are excellent. A theme park, quite frankly, is a gift that keeps on giving. Your grandchild won’t get to go just once. He or she will get to go all summer or throughout the year.The above are just a few ideas that are sure to please the little guy or gal who has just finished preschool. Get something special, get something artsy, but above all, get something fun.
