The Huffington Post reports that 72% of grandparents surveyed stated that being a grandparent is the single most important role in their life.

How can you possibly thank grandparents for the love, devotion, and sacrifices they make for you and your kids? It can feel overwhelming and impossible. But don’t worry.

We’ve compiled a list of top 8 gifts for grandparents that are thoughtful and meaningful. Check it out.

1. Engraved Jewelry

What do you get the Grandma that has everything? A sentimental gift that doesn’t take up too much storage space!

A simple, classically elegant bar necklace is sure to be a welcome gift. Engrave their grandkids initials, names, or birthdates on it for a present she will love.

What about grandpa? Same idea but instead of a necklace, get a keychain, tie clip or money clip.

2. Photo Books, Calendars or Photo Frame

The best gifts for grandparents you could ever give revolve around memories. This year, give them presents that remind them of all the good times of the people they love. If you live far away from them, they’ll treasure these gifts even more.

Collect your best Instagram photos and print them in a hardcover book. There are many sites that allow you to make digital scrapbooks and print them.

Or you can order a tasteful desk calendar that has one picture per month. Wall calendars can be so unsightly-but if you know for a fact your folks love ’em, then go for it.

You can’t go wrong with personalised photo frames, either. Commemorate the grandparents special anniversary or another milestone in your family with an engraved photo frame.

3. Give an Experience

If you’re stuck on what to get grandparents for Christmas, think outside the box. They probably don’t need more stuff. Why not give them an experience they will cherish for years to come?

Think about what they would most love. Is it a couple ski weekend at a chalet? Or maybe a dinner theatre night out with the grandkids. A spa day would be great for those who enjoy being pampered.

Don’t be worried if the event is a few months away. Grandparents will love the anticipation of the big event.

4. A Grandparent’s Journal

Another gift idea for grandparents is a special grandparent’s journal that they can record their memories, advice and their best recipes.

These books are readily available in stores and online. Sometimes they are called “stories of a lifetime” or keepsake books. In them, grandparents can jot down stories of their childhood and life as young parents.

They will lovingly fill it out knowing that their words will live on for their grandkids and great-grandkids to enjoy. You and your kids will have a beautiful keepsake of your nana and papa even when they are gone.

Plus, it’s a great project for grandparents to work on when they have a lot of time on their hands.

5. Family Tree Gifts for Grandparents

A great gift for grandparents that are historically minded is an illustrated family tree. This is a chic and beautiful way to display your family’s heritage.

Etsy has several gorgeous prints available that are custom made with your family names. This is one of those gift ideas for grandparents that will be hard to top next year.

6. Tile Mate Key Finder Phone Finder Anything Finder

Sometimes it is good to give practical gifts. Are your grandparents always losing their keys, phone or remote control?

A Tile Mate is the perfect solution. You attach one end to the often lost device. You can then use the app from any smartphone to make the tile beep until you recover the lost item.

Tile Mate easily loops onto keychains or attaches to anything you don’t want to lose so you can find it fast. Can’t find the phone? Double push the tile button to make the phone ring, even if it is set to silent mode.

It’s practical, convenient and sure to get a lot of use.

7. Digital Picture Frame

Grandparents love to display their photos, but there comes a point where there are more photos than wall space, mantle place, and shelf space combined.

Give a digital picture frame this Christmas and set it up for them. They will be able to continually see their favorite memories and people all inside one frame.

You can choose various memory sizes depending on how many photos you want to display. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB are all options. Plus you can get frames that display HD photo and videos and have built-in speakers.

You can’t go wrong with this gift idea for grandparents.

8. iPad

Give the grandparents the gift of staying connected even across long distances. Get them a user-friendly tablet such as an iPad. They will be able to Facetime, Skype, take pictures and send SMS messages from one place.

Their eyes won’t mind the larger screen size, either!

Install a few puzzles, brain teaser games, and yes, even candy crush on the tablet for them. When the kids come to visit they will love cuddling up with grandma or grandpa and play a game together on the tablet.
