10 Unique Gifts For Grandfathers For Father's Day


Grandfathers specialize in fun. How do you say thanks to the guy who taught you how to skip rocks, fed you ice cream when your parents said “no,” and could find quarters behind your ears? Instead of a predictable Father’s Day gift for grandpa, find him something fun and unusual that says, “You’re special Gramps”. Check out your options below; there are many that are just so out-of-the-ordinary.

Deeds to the United States - Does grandpa tell stories about his childhood in Michigan? Wish he’d bought a cabin in upstate New York? Give him a tiny piece of his dream with a Deed to a one square inch parcel of land in New York or any individual state. Deeds are available for all 50 states too. The individually numbered deed will be inscribed with grandpa’s name and you can have it framed or mounted on a plaque. What could be a more unique gift?

Photo Stamps - No grandfather has ever said, “No more photos of the grandkids!” Indulge his love of snapshots with USPS Photo Stamps of his children, grandchildren, or his pets. By uploading photos from your computer (or his) you can create personalized stamps (real US Postage) and make all his mail unique. Every recipient will certainly know how much he loves his family.

Presents for Baseball Lovers—Does Grandpa remember the days when the Dodgers called Brooklyn home? Reminisce about America’s pastime with a Ballpark Pen made of the wooden seats from his favorite ballpark—even some that have been razed. You can also give him a Ballpark baseball corkscrew or bottle opener, a basket of wine or the beer of the month club.

One Share of Stock – What does your grandfather love? His Campbell Tomato soup for lunch? Tootsie Rolls? His Apple Computer?, Coca-Cola? If he does love Coke, bet he doesn’t own Coca-Cola stock. But he could! The company called OneShare.com sells, well, duh, one share of stock in various popular companies. You get a fancy legal stock certificate to hang on his wall and the company’s annual report along with all the company’s financial info. One share may not make him rich, although he will receive corporate declared dividends and have voting rights, but I bet he’ll love it.. Check all the companies out.

Trip Back in Time—Grandpa knows entertainment: Who’s on First, The Shadow Know, Aliens invading NYC. Help him enjoy his favorite shows again with 30 one hour discs of classic radio recordings from the 30’s and 40’s. The Old Time Radio Shows include everything from the comedies to mysteries to variety shows that made families of the era tune in each evening. You can also get him an authentic copy of a major newspaper from his birthday. Show him what made the news on the day he was born.

Delicious Treats—Grandpa may not cook like Emeril but I bet he’s the first guy at the table when suppertime rolls around. Sign him up to enjoy three, six, nine or twelve months of his favorite foods with the Gift of the Month Club. There are 21 clubs to choose from including lobster, salsa, ice cream, even a dinner and a movie club that includes a pasta/sauce dinner, gourmet popcorn and a Blockbuster gift card.

Gifts of Nature—If grandpa is more at home in the forest than in his own living room celebrating his love of nature with a gift straight from the great outdoors. Choose a gift that reflects the strength and long lasting affect Grandpa’s had on your life with a tree planted in his honor. It will be planted on public lands in the state of your choice and Grandpa will receive a personalized note and Happy Father’s Day certificate. Or choose and out of the world gift with his own personal star registered with the Universal Star Catalogs Database. He’ll receive a certificate and the stellar coordinates so, with the help of a telescope, he can gaze upon his very own star.

Jitterbug One Touch Cell Phone - This for your grandfather may just be what he may need someday…and only what he may need—a cell phone with only three buttons. The buttons are 911, His Choice of a number of his choice (yours?) and Operator (a live operator that can hook him up with numbers such as tow-truck services or look up a person’s number for you). He can also store the numbers of ten friends and family to scroll through and call. What a great gift not only for grandpa, but grandma and older relatives too!

Gifts to Wear - Give grandpa a shirt that tells the world just who he is. Dog Breed Shirts embroider a head portrait of Grandpa’s favorite breed and the name of his furry friend above the left side pocket of a comfy button down denim shirt. Everyone from “Cool Grandpa” to “Poppy” to “Marine Grandpa” can find the perfect t-shirt or cap at Café Press.
