Grandparents are often such a huge part of our lives, so why not give them a gift they totally deserve for all they’ve done?! Heartwarming, personal, or just something to remind them how special they really are, today’s post is here to give you some good ideas. Emma of Vow to be Chic is sharing special wedding gifts for the grandparents to inspire you and your gifting! Keep reading to see what she has to say!
Not everyone is lucky enough to have their grandparents grace the most special day in their life –their nuptials. And if you happen to be among the lucky few, then the pressure to impress must be immense on you.
Amidst the hustles of preparing for the wedding, most grandparents get left out once the rest of the wedding party has been sorted and their gifts ordered. In most cases, their needs tend to be taken care of at the last minute.
There’re a ton of other things to take care of.
But that shouldn’t be the case with you.
This piece will help you prepare early for your grandparents’ gifts (whether they’re from your side or your fiancé’s). Specifically, we’ll show you an assortment of items that will probably leave them with a bigger smile once the curtains fall on the big day.
So read on.
Fresh Coffee Beans From Around the World
For your grandpa and grandma to wake you up very early in the morning to work on the backyard, they needed a bit of a caffeine boost. And there’s no better way of sending back the gratitude other than getting them an Atlas Coffee Club subscription.
With this subscription, they’ll be getting fresh coffee beans sourced from around the world and delivered straight to their doorstep.
And if they are true coffee aficionados, then they’ll appreciate the opportunity to taste variety and learn new coffee brewing methods from around the globe.
Thinking about what grandpa would want? This is it.
Nothing will make the old man happier other than a pair of bison socks. Designed to beat the cold while maintaining style, these pairs of bison socks will be best suited for a day out, bedtime, or just an uneventful winter chill with his well-aged wife.
And thanks to the reinforced heel and toe areas, your grandpa won’t be crying about hurting feet thanks to some woolen cloth he wrapped around his feet. These are rather comfortable to be in.
Personalized Toiletry Bag
If your grandpa is the neatest man you know (I mean, look at you), then not getting him this toiletry bag will be an absolute injustice to him.
For one, it’s made out of 100% full grain cow leather. The lining is made out of nylon cotton blended fabric, adding that bit of waterproofness a proper toiletry bag desperately needs.
And here’s the best part.
You can have this gift personalized.
This is exactly what your grandpa will need from the person he’s helped raised to such fineness. And if you’re wondering about the gift box, then this toiletry bag comes in a personalized wooden gift box ready to be handed to its rightful owner.
Yes, this is for grandma. And it doesn’t matter if she was hypnotized by potpourris – this is a modern take she’ll love.
The Jo Malone lime basil and mandarin scent diffuser is designed to make the house smell like nectar. Its sophistication is embodied not only in the scent but also the minimalistic container design that crowns the entire package.
Put all that together, and those will be the reasons why this gift will not see the living room only when she hears you’re around town.
Click and Grow Smart Garden
C’mon, it’s the digital age. Why should your grandparents be out gardening in the backyard? Get them a smart garden.
But will they love it?
Sure they will.
For one, the Click and Grow smart garden provides the right gardening conditions all year round. Thus, grandma will never be short of herbs, “because the rains went on a go-slow”.
Two, this smart garden comes with ready pods for mini tomatoes, green lettuce, and basil. That means your grandparents will be ready to plant their favorite fresh herbs the moment they get their hands on this.
And thankfully, there isn’t much tech involvement needed to operate one.
Grandparents are a fine thing in life. Their wisdom, knowledge, and relationships are aged like wine. And that’s why this gift will work well on your wedding day.
Just getting them a single bottle of wine will be a great gift to two of the most important people in your life. Wine will not only show that you appreciate their old age and wisdom but also you hold them in high and priceless regard.
Unlike this generation, our grandparents have known what it means to live in total darkness. That means they’ve gotten used to using candles and lamps to get through the nights. That’s unlike most of us who can get restless over mere lack of Wi-Fi.
Of course, we are past the “dark ages”. But you can incite a bit of good nostalgia by gifting them these scented candles.
This one from LAFCO, for instance, releases a mix of mountain spruce and burning wood when lit. In as much as it won’t fully light up the house, it will lighten the mood and perhaps take them back to their first date – when candlelit dinners were a real thing.
Your grandparents have been the best custodians of your baby photos. You probably spotted your mom in her diapers thanks to your grandparent’s excellent record keeping skills.
And as a kind gesture to them for attending your wedding, you can gift them a photo book that they can keep adding to their vast collection.
Even better, if you happen to have a couple of photos of them and their close friends and family, then you can get them the photo book with a couple of nostalgic photos already added to the collection.
And to crown it all, you can add a photo of you and your wife just after the wedding as a personal thank you to your ever-supportive grandparents.
Thanks so much to Emma for sharing these special wedding gifts for the grandparents! These are such great options to show your grandparents how much they mean to you!
