In this, the final post in our Father’s Day Gift Guide Series, we are so happy to honor those dads who hold such a special place in our hearts–grandpas. For all those grandfathers, grandpas, papas and pop-pops of the world, we’ve got 10 great ideas in every price range to honor them for all they do.
If this is his first Father’s Day as a grandpa, this baby footprint artwork turns your baby’s tootsies into a heart in your choice of colors. Totally custom, and short lead time too. ($20 from By Katherine Therese)
A document of his life’s adventures will make an amazing future family heirloom, this Traveler Leather Journal from Rustico comes in five different colors, and you can even have it personalized. ($56 + $10 for personalization)
The Grandpa Book by Todd Parr is the perfect little gift from a baby or toddler. And hopefully, some time for him to read it to them out loud very soon. ($9.99 at our affiliate Amazon)
If you’ve got a Palm Beach or Park Avenue gramps, these Bottega Veneta leather slippers will be fabulous whether he’s puttering around his manicured garden or reading the WSJ over espresso on the patio. ($490 at Mr. Porter)
An origami crane is the symbol of honor and loyalty, and you can have one sent in a box directly to your Papa, Daddy or Grandpa, along with this beautiful card, from Peace Crane Greetings on Etsy. So lovely. ($7)
We are big fans of gifts that encourage the kids to spend more time with grandpa, and a new croquet set ($129) or bocce ball set ($89, above) is a great way to do that. (Probably not for apartment dwellers though.) Find one at your local sporting goods shop or here through LL Bean. For indoor fun, check out the Jacques of London chess sets which range from affordable to whoa, mahogany. ($39.99 and up.)
For a grandpa with a sense of humor, we’re laughing at the When I Was Your Age… Grandpa Mug. It’s even made so you can fill in the rest of the sentence with a dry erase marker. ($12 from Artomanic)
Grandcamp Adventures is an entire website filled with grandpa gift ideas. While there are CDs and storybooks, we particularly like this Longbeard’s Treasure Hunt kit packed with an adventure made especially for kids and their grandparents to go on together. ($64.95 at Grandcamp Adventures)
You’ve heard of the fruit of the month club – why not an art of the month club? Send Grandpa one of the genius Lil Davinci art cabinets with an original from the grandkid. Plus a promise to send a new masterpiece to him each month for a year. ($29.95 and up for the frames; kids artwork, priceless.)
