It’s that time of year when you start beating your head against the wall trying to think of the perfect gifts! What should you get your grandpa for Christmas? What do you get for a man who has, probably at one time or another, owned everything he has ever wished for? Well, the key is to buy gifts that match his hobbies or passions. This curated list should be a great guide to get you started on holiday shopping for your grandad.
For a start, you can always rely on the tried and tested gift for men – quality socks. Only this time, go for socks with tones of attitude. A funny message on the bottom of these quality socks is bound to get your grandpa compliments every time he rests his feet up.
Great for the outdoorsman, this knife can have a personalized message engraved just for your grandpa. Available in a wide range of designs, the high quality, stainless steel, Elk Ridge knife includes a handy pocket clip. Based on the knife’s functionality it may also be shipped in a leather sheath to prevent its edge from dulling and to keep accidents at bay.
In keeping with customization, this personalized monogram engraved decanter should be perfect for holding your grandpa’s liquor. However, the Italian made, 23 ¾ ounce decanter is best used with colored liquor to create contrast and bring out the monogram.
With age comes lowered eye focusing ability (learn more about it here). This makes reading difficult as you advance in age. To get your grandpa’s workshop projects going once again, consider getting him this Lithium-ion powered, 16-feet, digital tape measure. Its large readout makes reading dimensions easy for even aging eyes. It also features other functions such as calculating midpoints, quick unit conversion, and can keep going for 64 hours. Its polycarbonate plastic body keeps this compact tape measure useable in almost any environment.
To keep your grandpa’s soles comfortable and warm, these loafer-looking, water-resistant suede top slippers have a cozy wool lining. The slippers also feature a durable rubber outsole, making them great for both indoors and outdoors. Additionally, there are 16 colors to choose from, though color availability is based on one’s foot size.
Playing hours of chess when the family gathers together at grandpa’s is quite traditional. If this describes your last Christmas holiday, why not consider picking up this hand-crafted chess set. The warm-colored, birch and beech board keeps great contrast while giving the board a high-quality feel. The chess pieces are made from sycamore and hornbeam and should last a good long while. Further, their felt bottom will keep the board from attracting scratches from the pieces moving on the board.
To return that youthful shine to your grandfather’s beard, get him this premium grooming kit. With the applied products being made from 100% organic oils and wax, there are fewer chances of irritation after application. The products result in a healthier-looking, softer-feeling, beard. Additionally, the unscented products come packaged with a sharp pair of scissors, a bamboo comb, and a firm brush. All this comes packed in great looking bamboo box with magnetic closing action.
Tired of looking for grandad’s remote or misplaced wallet around the house over the holidays? This set of 4 receivers and 1 remote control should sort you out. Simply attach a receiver to items you easily lose track of. With a simple push of a button on the remote control, it becomes easy to track your item by following the beeping alerts.
Kickstart your grandad’s mornings with a fresh cup of coffee with this no-frills, easy to use, coffee maker. Good for brewing up to 5 cups at a time, the compact coffee maker takes up very little space on the countertop. Moreover, it uses a removable, washable filter basket, saving your granddad the extra cost of buying paper filters.
To proudly display special moments captured on film, this set of picture frames presents different options for displaying your pictures. The easy to hang frames include all necessary hardware for framing including contrasting colored mats.
Forty tool functions all condensed down to the size of a credit card, this minimalist tool will also function as a money clip for your grandpa. As such its compact size allows the toolcard to easily slide into the pocket. To allow the tool to fit its purpose, the money clip can be snapped off – and this is without using any tools.
Sure, you could get a point-and-shoot camera, or let your grandpa use his smartphone camera. These, however, will never match up to the print quality of this 18mp sensor, DSLR camera. To create blurred backgrounds, or get better low light photos, this budget DSLR is the way to get started. Packaged with an EF-S 18-55mm lens with f/3.5-5.6, filters, SD card and more, your grandpa can get shooting immediately. It can also be operated from a smartphone app enabling him to take photos from unusual angles.
