As a grandmother, these are some of my favorite ideas for presents for first-time grandparents.

Baby First Year Picture Frame Collage

Baby First Year Picture Frame Collage

This framed collage is a great way to show how much a beloved grandchild grows within the first year. It makes a great keepsake as well. It holds 12 standard wallet-sized pictures of the child. You can purchase this at either Walmart or Amazon. Amazon offers customization with the child's name.

Stack of books

BookLender

There are a lot of changes in how to raise children and what to do and not do during pregnancy than when the grandparents had their children. If they are readers they may want to read up on some new trends in child-rearing. I remember reading the book “What to expect when you are expecting” 20+ years ago, and my mom was still learning new things after having children.

Booklender is a subscription service that allows you to borrow paperback books and includes a pre-paid envelope to mail the book(s) back when you are done reading them. It reminds me of how Netflix started back in the day with its DVDs.

Digital Picture Frame

A digital picture frame is great for anyone. When you are looking for presents for first-time grandparents a digital picture frame is a great choice.

Grandparents can add pictures and videos of their new grandchild to the picture frame at any time. Depending on the version you purchase, images can be added to it via email.

Facebook Portal

Do you know what a Facebook Portal is? It is amazing! You can open a messager room for up to 50 people with it and talk via video. This is a great way to stay in touch in real-time with family and see that adorable little bundle of joy in your life.

You can also play your favorite music on it as well. We plan on purchasing them for our family. Presents for first time grandparents should be practical and useful. This definitely fits the bill.

My Favorite People Call Me Grandma Figurine

How adorable is this grandma figurine from Precious Moments? If the new grandma collects figurines this adorable one definitely falls under presents for first time grandparents perfectly.

This porcelain figurine is a work of art. The painstaking detail that went into it must be seen to believe, and even though its height measures 5 inches tall on average you'll want one for your collection because they're just so cool!

Foot care essentials bundle 

You are probably wondering why I would add foot care to a presents for first time grandparents guide. The answer is simple! Your feet may get tired from chasing after the little ones. Ok, so that won't happen when the baby is first born but think ahead! Some newborns love to be walked/bounced and that can be hard on your feet having this foot care set would be a great way to take care of yourself.

Got Promoted to Grandpa shirt 

Does the new grandpa love funny saying t-shirts? I know my husband does. He loves shirts with sayings (especially sarcastic ones) and would love this one for sure.

We all know this shirt is true that great dads get promoted to grandpa am I right? Chose from either of these shirts.

Grandkids spoiled here doormat 

grandkids spoiled here doormat

We all know that grandparents love to spoil their grandkids. It comes with the territory, right? Why not show off that spoiling will happen with this doormat. When you see this door mat, you know there is a lot of fun to be had.

Grandmas brag board

Grandma's Brag Board

Grandma's love to show off pictures of the grandkids and this brag board is a great way to display the newest pictures. I love the clothesline look and the clothes pins to hold the pictures to display them. First time grandparents gifts are a great opportunity to find different ways to display photos.

Great Moms Get Promoted To Grandma Shirt

I shared a t-shirt for new grandpa, so of course, I have to share one for new grandma as well. How cute would it be to have the grandparents wear them at the same time? I think it would be absolutely adorable personally. Chose from either of these shirts.

Grandma t-shirt

Grandparents Coffee Mugs

Best Grandma and Grandpa coffee mug set

Are you looking for presents for first-time grandparents that can be a gift as a couple? These coffee mugs will fit that bill. It's a great way to start the day with your morning coffee to remind yourself how great of a grandparent you are.

Grandparents’ House Sign

This wooden sign is another way to advertise that there is a lot of spoiling going on in this house. Why is it that once we become grandparents we want to spoil the kids in ways we never did when our kids were younger? Chose from either of these signs.

Grandma & Grandpa's House Sign

Mimi’s Place Sign

Not all grandmothers choose to be called grandma. There are a bunch of different versions you can choose from. Personally, I am Mimi to my grandchildren. This sign needs to be purchased for my home and hung up with love!

MyBevi Tumbler

MyBevi Tumbler

It is important for everyone to stay properly hydrated to prevent dehydration. I have one of these tumblers and it is amazing. It keeps things at the right temperature for hours. What I love about this particular tumbler is that it comes in different colors and can be customized. When looking for first time grandparents gifts customized items are always a great choice.

Opove Massage Gun

Opove Massage Gun

Along with the foot care essentials bundle, you may want to gift the new parents a personal massage gun. I know it is a unique gift but it will help sore tired muscles. Grandparents tend to use muscles they are not used to from lifting/rocking/playing with the grandkids and this can help. We own one and love it.

Our Little Miracle Picture Frame

Our Little Miracle Photo Frame

All babies are miracles. This little picture from Precious Moments shows off that miracle. Holds a 2”x3” photo with the message “Little Miracle”. This Bisque Bear Ornament is carefully crafted of fine porcelain and hand-painted to perfection. It features an adorable teddy bear holding up its favorite yellow blanket.

Bookemon

photo book

I have shared many different ways to display precious photos of that new grandbaby. Bookemon allows you to make a personalized photo book of photos. I consider this to be a great option when looking for first-time grandparents gifts it can also be a keepsake. You can make one of the best photos for every year of the child's life.
