Christmas gift suggestions for grandparents Powered By Docstoc
					It's christmas! Well not quite, though it is equivocally approaching fast and as such
today is the perfect time to start your xmas browsing for gifts for your grandad and
grandma. In the coming festive season, why not treat your gran to a present that will
make them smile for years to come. Personally I'm opting for an item intimate, as i
really like the idea of the grandad and grandma having an item to take a part of on
xmas day, an item that they uncover together and appreciate mutually for many a year
to come. Well, as a matter of fact, the fiancee and i are currently thinking of one
"extravagant" present for the grandad and grandma to share and an singular minor
souvenir or two for each of them, hopefully this will give them the best of both worlds
as they both also get a few small-scale items to uncover.
  For my fiancee's grandad and grandma we're considering the ever fashionable
individual pillows as the joint present for xmas, we already procured a set of these for
my own grandparents last year and they were an immense hit so that without doubt
makes the choice easier this time around. As for the personalised minor souvenir, for
grandad i think some crystal whiskey glasses will be perfect as he's a large devotee of
the infrequent dram of whiskey. For gran, the choice is a little more difficult, at
present we're deciding between a case of individual red wine or a personalised
silvered photo frame complete with photos of the grandchildren. I'm going to leave
the closing choice on this up to my fiancee, and i don't envy her, it's a difficult
decision for certain!
  We think it's really important to think about what it is your grandad likes to do, for
example if they have any hobbies or such as this will make an excellent foundation
for selecting a gift for them. As an instance my own grandad, is an extravagant fishing
believer and fond of the infrequent tipple to say the least and both of these hobbies
give a good foundation for choosing a present. Now whilst i may not know much
about fishing, i do know the essentials i.e. that it's often frosty and windy out fishing,
therefore a good idea for a related souvenir would be perhaps an decorated hip flask
complete with a bottle of their preferred drink. Moving onto gran, her preferred
hobbies are knitting and gardening and whilst i accept i know little to nothing about
knitting, i may have to leave this one up to my fiancee, on the other hand gardening i
do know about. As such perhaps a suitable present would be a gardening diary, or
perhaps an individual set of gardening gear again the key here is to give something
that they will use for years to come so every time they pick up said item they will see
the personalised message and be able to reminisce.
  Whatever you decide to give your grandad and grandma for xmas this year we're
sure you will decide the most acceptable present as long as you put a little thought
into what it is they like to do or appreciate, if so then it's sure to bring a smile to the
grandparents faces this christmas.
