Christmas Gifts for Grandparents
What do grandparents want for Christmas? That’s the easiest question to answer in 2020.
Photos of their grandchildren, photos in print, hanging on their wall, on their phone, whatever.
The answer is and almost always will be photos. Trust me, as a photographer that’s illiterately what I give my parents every Christmas. Do they get bored of the same old present every year? Of course not.
Some might argue, Sebastian James, President & Managing Director of Boots for example, that grandparents want something different. They want bath and beauty gift sets and a Nando’s 7 sauce selection set.
Sebastian will lure you in with the promise of double reward points which’ll get you just that little bit closer to those hair straighteners you’ll be gifting yourself.
Jeff Bazos might convince you on Black Friday that they really want another Kindle Fire Tablet. But remember that one you bought two years ago because it was such a great deal? Of course you don’t because it’s in a draw and hasn’t been fully charged in 18 months.
Candles are ok I suppose. What grandparent wouldn’t want to be sitting in a room with a woody, earthy fragrance with notes of velvet as they watch beeswax, soy and palm slowly melt whilst they contemplate the physical and government imposed distance they have from their families?
I’m not going to say anything against scarfs or socks. Something that is both practical and decorative are wonderful Christmas Gifts for Grandparents. But you need to ask yourself one question. Does a pair of novelty Christmas socks make the perfect gift for someone who once gifted you they greatest gift of all time?*

(Super Nintendo/Barbie Dream House/Nokia 3310).
Does a scarf say how much you’ve missed that person who, despite months of shielding still hasn’t mastered online shopping?
These are nice add on Christmas Gifts for Grandparents, but you’re far more generous than that aren’t you?
Frequently asked questions about the perfect Christmas Gifts for Grandparents
Do pictures from your phone printed on a canvas from Snappy Snaps make good Christmas Gifts for Grandparents?
Do you have a deal on which is perfect for Christmas Gifts for Grandparents?
Well its funny you should ask that! We do in fact and not only is it amazing value but it’s the perfect Christmas Gifts for Grandparents.
I won’t lie, this entire article has been written for the purpose of selling this deal. It’s all really good deal so it should sell itself.
Word of warning, I’m going to take really good pictures of your children. We might even sneak in a few family pictures while at it. You are totally going to want to buy more photos for yourself so you should probably prepare yourself for that.
You don’t have to of course, but you will want to.
My parents want a picture of all the grandchildren together. How can we make that happen?
Another fine question which is so on point that it’s almost as if I wrote it myself.
With current (at time to writing) restrictions in place we are unable to photograph two or more different households at the same time in the studio.
There’s no reason why we can’t do separate photoshoots in the same style of each of the different households.
The individual or sibling shots can then be put together in a montage for a wall art.
Honestly I think these types of montages look better than a simple shot of kids together. I’ll let you a little secret, it’s much easier to get a lovely, natural expression from a child when we’re photographing them individually than in a group.
My parents have so many pictures of their grandchildren children that they’ve run out of room. Do you have any other ideas?
First, but then a gift voucher. Then you’ll want to order a digital package from your shoot. Really this is just a gift to yourself, it’s been a tough year, why not?
On Black Friday buy them a half price Kindle Fire Tablet, put the photos on it and tell them it’s a digital photo frame.
My parents don’t like their grandchildren, do you have any other ideas for Christmas Gifts for Grandparents?
Scarfs and socks or possibly a Nando’s 7 sauce selection set dependant on available Boots points rewards.
