Personalized Father’s Day Gifts for Grandpa
My go-to for Grandpa gifts for Father’s Day is always something sentimental, they tend to be the most loved! And, it’s fun to get the kids involved in the gift creation, too. Here are a few favorite Father’s Day gift ideas that Grandpa is sure to love.
Hidden Photo Key Fob: Add a sweet photo of the grandkids to the inside of this monogramed leather key fob so he can always carry around (and show off!) their cute faces!
Child’s Handwriting Sweatshirt: Have your child write a sweet note like “___’s Grandpa” or “World’s Best Grandpa!” that can then be embroidered on a sweatshirt for Grandpa to proudly sport!
Custom Dog Hat: Maybe Grandpa has a few favorite fur-children too? These sweet hats can be embroidered with a portrait of his favorite dog!
Child’s Drawing Leather Catch All: Another sweet item to customize with a child’s handwriting or drawing is a leather catch all. These are the kind of things that are always useful to keep small items organized, whether that’s on Grandpa’s dresser, desk or the front entryway.
Storyworth: This is one of the greatest Father’s Day gifts I’ve given, and it’s a gift that keeps on giving! Storyworth sends a question to the recipient every week to answer. At the end, they compile all the questions (and any photos the recipient included) into a beautiful book.
You can order as many copies as you’d like. My father was so thrilled with how his turned out, he ordered extra copies for all his kids and everyone has loved reading through it. It’s the perfect way to preserve someone’s life story.
Desktop Photo Calendar: Pull some of your favorite photos of the kids and compile them into this beautiful, and refillable, desktop calendar!
