First Birthday Gifts Ideas from Grandma and Grandpa

Gift Ideas for Grandchildren

A 1st birthday is such a special time. Especially for you as grandparents. Finding that perfect gift for a first birthday party can be such an enjoyable moment. We know that your grandchild might not remember their first birthday, but you will. So here are some ideas on what to get your grandchild for their 1st birthday party.

Toys, Toys, and more Toys!

This is a little obvious. But what kid doesn't love toys? They are growing and growing fast and toys help with many different facets while they are growing, from hand-eye coordination to problem-solving. Be sure that you check to make sure the toys are appropriate for the age. Most toys are labeled with the specific age that the toy is meant for. Or you can ask your grandchild's parents if there are any toys they'd think are best for your grandchild's birthday.

A Keepsake Gift That Says "I Love You"

This gift is more for when your grandchild gets a little older. Giving your grandchild a gift that they can look back on to remember their 1st birthday would be something they would love, their parents would love, and you’ll love. Frame a picture of them when they were firstborn, or get together a bunch of photos of them throughout their first year of life. Make the collection into a photo book or even a VidDay video slideshow. This way, when they are older, they can look back and see how happy and loved they are.

Keepsakes are meaningful gifts for birthdays. Here are some ideas for valuable keepsake gifts from grandparents to grandchildren.

Time Capsules

This idea takes a bit more effort to put together, but a time capsule is a great keepsake gift.

Save the birth announcement, pictures, cards, printed programs from the day your grandchild is born, first walking, athletic and music events, different levels of graduation, etc. Once you've gathered everything together, put them into a special box for your grandchild. Then once it's their birthday, you can go through the box with them and then ask them where they'd like to store it for when they are older. It's a fun and interactive keepsake gift.

Family Heirlooms

You might have some meaningful items that you want to pass down to your family members. Giving a family heirloom to your grandchild for their birthday is a beautiful and thoughtful idea.

They make such meaningful gifts that your grandchild can hold on to and cherish forever. Whether it's a ring that's been passed down through the family or some gem, your grandchild will be more than happy that grandma and grandpa want to pass it down to them. Plus, it's something you can tell a story with, explaining to your grandchildren how you got it and what it means to you. It creates memories that will last a lifetime.
