This post shares six fantastic DIY Christmas gifts for grandparents, most that I’ve had experience making with my own children. I can tell you from experience that these gifts are sure to bring big smiles to the recipients’ faces. Enjoy!
Out of all the gift guides coming out this month here on this site, I have a hunch that this one will give the most “aha” moments of “THAT’S what I’m going to give!”
If you’re into the idea of pulling out whatever craft supplies you have around the house and making a mess with your kiddos in the name of making family members smile with truly priceless, homemade gifts, then hopefully this post with six ideas for DIY Christmas gifts for grandparents will help you put your finger on what kind of DIY project you want to tackle and gift this year.
DIY Christmas Gifts for Grandparents
Salt Dough Handprint Ornament, because they’re relatively easy and cheap, and you (*ahem* your kid) can make them as decorated and detailed (or not) as possible.
Mistletoe Tea Towels, because I can attest that these really do last and really do bring a ton of “awww”s from recipients (the girls and I cranked out about 10 of them in two hours last year). We did the same picture above but on tea towels (I ordered this pack and they were perfect). We used regular acrylic paint, and while it doesn’t wash off the towel, it does easily wash off your kids’ toes. 🙂
Helping hands oven mitt, because I saw the ones my sister made last year for the grandparents and they were stinkin’ precious! I would actually love some from the girls for my own kitchen. 🙂
Popsicle stick pen holder, because this gift is a triple threat: homemade, functional, and super cute even when it’s messy.
Snowflake ornament, because you could give all of the crafty supplies to your elementary kids with an example picture and let them make this completely by themselves. Old school but super cute!
Thumbprint Christmas lights picture frame, because this one wouldn’t involve much artistic talent on your end besides helping your kids dip their fingers in paint and connecting them with black lines. I really love this one and could see it being pulled out and displayed every Christmas for years and years.

Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother is today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 4 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
