1. Plum Print Pillow

Turn your little one’s artistic creation into a beautiful keepsake. Simply send in a piece of artwork and Plum Print will create a custom indoor/outdoor throw pillow that any grandparent would be proud to place on display. Can’t decide on what piece or art to use (or missed the deadline for holiday delivery)? Gift certificates are a great option, too.





2. Swoon necklaces

Swoon Jewelry is beautifully handmade and can be customized to fit the most discerning of styles. Custom pieces can include you child’s name, birth stone, and nearly anything else you can think of. They have almost limitless options on their site and make lovely, unique gifts for grandparents and caregivers, too.

3. The Giving Plate

Capture your family’s favorite recipes on a beautiful serving platter. Prairie Hills Pottery will transfer handwritten recipes or images on to a serving dish of your choice. All items are 100% food safe and are perfect to use daily, for special occasions, or to simply display.





4. minted photo calendar

Minted is one of our favorites for personalized photo art. Their calendars are the perfect gift for grandparents that they can enjoy all year round. And beyond personalization with favorite photos, the calendars can also be customized with special dates, like birthdays and anniversaries. Their design marketplace features creations from independent artists from around the globe, so you’ll easily find a truly one-of-a-kind gift.





5. Give Cookies

Give Grandma (or Grandpa) a break from baking this holiday season and send them a box of delicious gourmet cookies from Give. Made from fair trade and organic ingredients, these tasty treats are packaged in beautifully designed gift boxes from artisans in India. And as if that wasn’t enough, with each box of cookies ordered, a portion of the proceeds are donated to a charity of your choice. (These cookies also make a delcious gift for teachers and caregivers!)






6. Custom Silhouette Ornament

A different take on simply sending pics of the grandkids (although we’re sure those are in hot demand, too!), these ornaments are hand-crafted in pure white clay. They come beautifully packaged and are complete with a ribbon, ready to be hung on the tree or mantle. All pieces are made to order, so be sure to keep that in mind.





Hale Groves Citrus Fruits

Fresh-from-the-groves citrus fruit is a delicious gift for folks of all ages. Packaged in beautiful gift boxes, Hale’s Groves have been gifting fruit for over 60 years. Select a mix of oranges and grapefruits, or choose a favorite variety, like clementines. They also offer monthly subscriptions, to keep the fruit rolling in all year round!






Grandparent/Grandchild Activity Set

These 20 shared activities will create a lifetime of memories for grandparents and grandkids alike. It offers a great mix of indoor (like cooking) and outdoor (like animal watching) activities, and both grandparents and grandkids get their own set of cards to commemorate each activity.
