Grandparents Birthday Gift Ideas

Plants & Bushes

Does your grandfather or grandmother love gardening? Perhaps a potted plant or bush would add to their joy and spruce up their yard. Plants and bushes are great birthday gifts as with proper care they last long for many years. Think of the size of their backyard or terrace or porch before getting them a plant.

Gourmet Gifts Basket

while a birthday cake for seniors may be too much, many of them love coffee & cookies. A deliciously arranged gift basket with gourmet items like coffee, tea, as well as cookies is yet another great birthday gift. Be sure to check their medical condition if they are recommended to keep distance for coffee or certain other gourmet items before buying.

Pet Products

Many of grandparents own pets as their buddies. They find pets the most trusted companions. If possible get a treat or a toy for their pets which would be really a great gift idea for their birthday.


Seniors will surely appreciate a book from their favorite author. Almost every grandparent loves to spare their time with a good read whether it’s a fiction, a novel or spiritual piece of writing. No matter if your recipient may have a shelf full of books; he/she would never deny getting one more.


Everybody has a favorite movie, so as your grandparent. Book a ticket of his/her favorite movie or get him/her a DVD of their favorite flick. Often seniors love to watch flicks of the bygone era, so why not get them a CD or DVD of the movie that they hold dear to their heart!

Most Important thing to Consider

No matter how expensive or beautiful souvenir we buy for them, our grandparents’ love cannot be compared. Your time is the most important gift for them, so make sure you visit them on their birthday for sure. This will fill their heart with cheerfulness and a pretty smile will roll down their aging faces that will work like power booster ironing out all their fine lines. Give them a phone call right in the morning to wish him/her on their birthday.

Way to Pick the Right Birthday Gift

# Know your budget

How much are you willing to spend for a birthday gift? My logic to this is, if the person is well off I tend to give gifts that can be memorable but not necessarily expensive, however if the person has less in life, I tend to splurge a bit more on the gift I will give him. It all depends to the person you will be giving the gift to. This comes easy when the person directly tells you what he wants for his birthday. Only kids can do this, and if they do, give in to what they want only if it is within your means.

# Know the preference of the person

Giving a birthday gift to someone is easier to do when you really know the person. Because by then, you would know his likes and dislikes. With this info, you can now look for the gift that you know he will like to have in the first place. If the person is someone not close to you, you could start asking around or try to investigate. If he is a co-worker, ask him questions beforehand about his hobbies, or does he collects stuff. This will give you a clue on what to give him.

# The age matters

You can choose the right birthday gift if you know the age of the recipient because it is easier to look for the ones appropriate for them. This holds true most especially for younger celebrants. Choose the gift that you know will be useful for them or they would enjoy using. Giving a necktie to a 5 year old is something out of the window. Birthday gifts are meant to make people closer. The giver and the recipient can seal the friendship even more with exchanges of these presents. If you are a giver, try to look for the birthday gifts that will have meaning and purpose to the person you will be giving it. Do not just give for the heck of it; give because you like to give.

In case of presenting jewellery set, just think out of the box; gift her handmade sets or glass beads for inserting a down to earth feeling. The idea is to give her something unusual, to make her feel unique and different from all other teenage girls of her age. This will give her a special feeling, and a sense of importance and confidence in the years to come.

However, you can always give her a diamond studded earring set or a bracelet with her lucky gemstone; they are always precious and valuable, and will mean a lot to her. The 18th birthday gift ideas can also include a warm family dinner! It would be an occasion to remember forever, especially if your daughter is planning to move out of the town.
