You can use some free websites online like Zazzle, customink, snapfish or shutterfly to create personalized tee shirts, sweatshirts, coffee mugs and more.

Bring Back Memories

Is it not cool to create personal videos for your grandparents? You may have shot some videos of your family in old times. Look at previous year home videos and create a simple slide show or video. Add some music to it. You can pick some songs that your grandparents like. This will be a good token of love from you to them.

You may also create videos where your family members speak about their love for your grandparents. Add some special effects, songs and present the CD to your grandparents on Christmas. You can also watch it together and see the joy on your grandparents' faces.

Poetry or Hobby Gift Ideas for Grandparents

You or your children can write simple poetry and add it to a personalized homemade gift card. You may also make scented candles, soap or lamp shades for your grandparents. Elders also like to read. Hence, you may include a good book along with such homemade Christmas gifts.

Alternatively, you can gift them hobby class lessons, cooking lessons or quilting gifts. It is not the monetary factor but the love and affection coupled with the gifts.
