Grandpa can be especially hard to buy for when it comes to
his birthday. What can you possibly get someone who likely has everything? It’s
important to be thoughtful and practical, yet still stay within your budget.
After all, grandpa probably doesn’t want you to spend too much money on him.
Consider that no one wants to give up their sense of individuality when giving
a gift. That is why we’ve put together a list of personalized gifts for grandpa
that will make him feel appreciated and loved. These gifts can be customized
just for him! Read on to find out some suggestion’s grandpa will love:
For grandfathers who enjoy a drink now and then, or maybe even more often, consider a personalized flask. A flask is a stainless-steel container, made for holding liquid. Traditionally, it is used for holding hard liquor. The flask has a special shape, it is flat, so you can keep it in a jacket pocket without it sticking out. It’s a great, portable way for him to carry around his favorite drink. There are many styles of flasks to choose from too. There are styles that have a more modern flair or even retro or classic style. Many include accessories like a cover or even a set of shot glasses for sharing a drink with friends. If grandpa enjoys golfing, he would surely love a flask which features his name handsomely engraved on the side and some extra shot glasses so he can share a celebratory drink on the 9th green with his golf buddies. Don’t forget that a flask has lots of room on the side to feature his name or initials too.
While getting grandpa a ring might not be the first gift you think of when it comes to his birthday, there are some options that make it something to consider. If grandpa had a certain career, like as doctor or emergency medical personnel, there are rings which allow him to display and be proud of his career. Rings that feature the traditional medical symbols or even a heartbeat line. Likewise, if he was a member of certain organizations, like the freemasons for example, there are rings which feature the symbols of these fraternal organizations. There are also masculine rings which can feature his initials or even a laser printed photo on the face. Though when getting a ring, make sure you get an appropriate size, at least close to his finger size. That way he can switch the ring between fingers for tightness if needed.
A bracelet is a great gift for grandpa’s birthday. There are many styles to choose from that are quite masculine, including chain and cuff metal styles and even leather styles. All have plenty of room for engraving on the side for his name or initials. It’s also nice that bracelets are inexpensive yet easy to give, since you don’t need to worry about the sizing too much.
Whether he loves coffee or enjoys his beer, wine or alcohol, grandpa will love receiving any of these drinkware gifts. First, for the coffee lover, consider a personalized coffee mug or travel mug. Each of these can be personalized with his name on the side or even a picture. For the wine lover, there are wine glasses and many types of wine accessories available. Consider giving grandpa a set of wine accessories which include a corkscrew, wine stopper, foil cutter and decanter, all stored in a nice wooden box which can also be personalized. For the grandpa who enjoys the harder liquor choices now and then, consider a personalized beer stein or shot glasses.
For the grandpa who smokes, there are many gift choices. First, for the grandpa who smokes cigarettes, consider a personalized cigarette case or lighter. A personalized lighter, in particular, is a great choice since a lighter can come in handy for many practical uses. In fact, the famous brand Zippo in lighters has many styles to choose from that can be personalized with his name or initials on the side, or even just engrave “Grandpa”. For the grandpa who loves his cigars, there are many options here too. First, consider a cigar holder, which can be personalized with his name. Or how about a cigar humidor, which again, can include engraving of his name or initials on the top.
Grandpa’s might use cufflinks more often than younger men, so why not give him a new pair? There are many styles to choose from, including elegant, modern and classic styles, and all can be personalized with his initials.
Grandpa is also more likely to use a money clip than younger men. A money clip is used to keep paper currency together in a man’s pocket, jacket, bag or briefcase. There are many different styles available, and all can include engraving of his name or initials on the face of the clip.
Here is a classic gift, a watch. Not just any watch though, why not consider giving him a wooden watch? This is a relatively new watch style which is more nature focused. Most of the watch is made of wood and that makes it sustainable and eco-friendly. The metal parts can also often be recycled or re-used in some way. Wooden watches are also very stylish and make a unique fashion statement. Watches also have plenty of room for personalization too. Another style of watch to consider for grandpa is a pocket watch. This retro or old-fashioned style of watch is basically as it says, a watch that you keep in your pocket, rather than wear on your wrist. You often see this type of watch in the movies that focus on the 19th century time period. You can have his name engraved on the watch either on the inside or outside.
Another option to consider is medical ID jewelry. This consists of either a bracelet or necklace which includes important medical information about grandpa. This way, if there is ever an emergency and he needs help or medical care, personnel will be able to get him the care he needs right away.
