Grandpas are very special people, so getting him a thoughtful gift will reflect this sentiment. There are many ideas from which you can choose, ranging from cute T-shirts to more unique gifts such as a pocket watch. Take into consideration the things Grandpa likes to do and buy the gifts accordingly.
Getting Grandpa a set of golf balls is a great gift if he is a golf enthusiast. You can either get him a box or two of his favorite playing balls, or you can get him a set of collector's balls from something that he likes. For example, if you two go to Disneyland together, get him a collector's set of Disneyland golf balls. This gift will always remind him of the fun times you two have had together.
Giving Grandpa a shirt is always an option. You can get him something that's both cheesy and cute, or you can get him one of his favorite shirts. For example, a cute shirt that you can get him is one that says "World's Greatest Grandpa." If you make this shirt at home, you can put your hand prints on the shirt to decorate it (or, if the gift is for your child's grandpa, use your child's hand prints). A nicer shirt that he might like is a Tommy Bahama shirt, for example. Keep in mind the personality of the grandpa for whom you are buying the gift when choosing a shirt for him.
A pocket watch is a great idea for a grandpa. These timepieces are not seen as often as they used to be, so it is a unique gift you can give him. You can have a special note engraved on the inside or on the back of it so he can think of his grandchild whenever he checks the time.
Give Grandpa a frame that contains several pictures instead of one. Fill it with pictures of him and his grandchildren out doing fun things, from fishing to playing ball in the backyard. As the kids get older, and whenever they aren't around, he will always be reminded of these fond times when he sees the pictures.
Find a poem about how special grandpas are, one that reflects your personal feelings, and have it framed. You can either print it out or write it in calligraphy. These poems are a great way to show Grandpa how much he means to you.
