Electric Heated Throw
To be fair, we could all enjoy one of these! But a heated throw is perfect for keeping our grandparents toasty warm through the winter months. We love this extra snuggly one from Lakeland, with its fleecy lining and a choice of 9 heat and time settings.
Personalised Ceramic Vase
How adorable is this personalised ceramic vase from This Is Nessie. It’ll look fabulous on the sideboard whatever the season and is bound to raise a smile whenever it comes out.
Remember: New customers get 20% off at This Is Nessie with promo code: JOLLYFESTIVE
Monthly Flower Subscription
Speaking of flowers, why not give the gift of letterbox flowers each month with a subscription to online florist Bloom & Wild. Choose from 3, 6 or 12 months. Plus, get £10 off your first order with our link below.
Set Of Personalised Handkerchiefs
Perfect present for a grandfather, these 100% cotton patterned hankies can be personalised with a name of your choice and come beautifully presented in an elegant personalised container.
Digital Photo Frame
This has been a hands-down winner with our parents (aka the grandparents) and is one of their favourite all-time gifts. We love this frame for ease of remote upload by multiple users so that we can all continue to add new memories to the rotation.
Personalised Book Subscription
A grandfather winner at Jolly Festive HQ, give the gift of reading with a handpicked book delivered to the door each month. Choose between 3, 6 & 12 month subscriptions and the lucky recipient will be asked to share their reading preferences to help cherry pick their books. Spoiler and swap services available to ensure it’s a new read they enjoy each time.
Personalised Fingerprint Family Tree
Give as a project to enjoy together over the Christmas break or prepare in advance and gift completed, this family tree’s leaves are created from the fingerprints of all the family members together. A beautiful piece of wall art that celebrates the growth of the family through the generations.
Newspaper From The Day You Were Born
Once we reach a certain age, reminiscing about the ‘good old days’ is a given right, surely?! So lean into that sentimentality with an original copy of the newspaper on the day they were born. Comes with a certificate of authenticity and a book detailing the events of the date in the year they were born too.
Garden 2-in-1 Kneeler & Stool
Perfect for the gardening grandparent! This 2-in-1 kneeler-stool is ideal for supporting joints and offering a little comfort whilst tending to the plants. Foldable and with removable tool pouch, it’s ready for business whenever needed.
Grandparent Wall Art Poem
Both sets of grandparents to Hannah’s boys have this on their walls. Such a wonderful poem which looks to “summarise” what embodies our wonderful grandparents. It’s only available as a download these days but that makes it a very versatile and affordable gift! Print it out at home or via an online printing service and add a frame, and, hey presto, a gorgeous present for the grandparents!
Round Tin Tray
To be honest, we could probably add most of Emma Bridgewater’s store to our cart when looking for grandparent gifts but we particularly adore her round tin trays. They come out in a range of patterns throughout the year and always hit the mark. Plus they stack easily when not in use as well.
Personalised Book Spines Cushion
This one went down a storm when the grandkids delivered it. An eye-catching cushion, perfect for any grandparent bibliophile! Fill the spines with memories, dates, locations and people to create a bookshelf of their lives.
Sentimental Book of Letters To Write
Arguably a bit of a cheeky gift to give the grandparents as it’s one intended to be returned. But a gorgeous, sentimental idea too – 12 prompted letters and memories to share with the grandchildren, sure to be cherished long into adulthood. If you’d like to make things more of a two-way street, there’s a matching Letters To My Grandparent book too.
Tea Club Subscription
Tea by post? Err, yes please! And from fabulous Bird & Blend no less! Give membership to their VIP tea club for letterbox deliveries you know they’ll enjoy. 3-month subscription also available.
Photo Jigsaw Puzzle
Available in sizes up to 2000 pieces, a personalised photo jigsaw puzzle is the perfect activity to keep the grandparents busy during the darker days of winter. The question is which photo?!
