Imagine watching your grandson as he hurriedly rips the wrapping paper off your latest gift because he knows grandma always gives him the coolest things.
It can be hard to find gifts like this – gifts that deepen your bond with your grandson. You want a gift that lets him know how much he means to you.
But how will you find that perfect gift?
The good news is you don’t need to spend hours researching every possible gift for boys under ten.
You’re guaranteed to find at least one gift on this list that will elicit squeals of delight, a great big hug, and a huge grin.
Always remember the day your grandson entered the world with an elephant personalized birth announcement pillow. It’s a unique gift guaranteed to make mom smile and bring your grandson joy. The personalization with baby’s name and birth statistics embroidered on the 3D ears or wings makes this cute gift even more adorable. Since the pillowcase is removable for washing, your grandson can use and play with it whenever he wants. It doesn’t need to just sit on the shelf collecting dust. This will be a treasured keepsake everyone will love. Imagine him bringing it when he comes for a sleepover. You two can cuddle while telling him the story of the day he was born and how loved he truly is.
Avoid the long drawn out battles that ended in tears, often yours, as you struggled to get your kiddo out of the water while they begged for just a few more minutes. Help mom stress less by having a hooded towel to offer your spirited grandson. With so many designs to choose from, these will take your grandson from infancy up to his tween years. Just think of all the memories you can make together at the lake, pool, or even helping with bathtime.
Start a new tradition with your grandson and encourage a lifelong love of reading. Purchase a reading pillow and put an age-appropriate book inside the pocket. Every year purchase a new book and read to him until he’s old enough to start reading to you. Even if you live miles apart, you can still do this thanks to all the available technology. Imagine all the great adventures you two will have and the memories you’ll create as you explore the world through books.
Looking for ways to encourage your grandson’s imagination and decrease screen time? Imaginative play has so many benefits and there are lots of options available – finger puppets, masks, non-paper dolls. (Remember how you played with paper dolls? These are just as fun, but they’re made of felt and don’t rip!)
A gift your preschool-aged grandson will squeal over is the Boredom Buster Box. Filled with fun activities sure to entertain him, you can share your memories with him and make new ones as you play together.
Give him something that you picked out especially for him and has his name on it or a saying that has special meaning for the two of you. He will love it and all three of you can have many adventures together. What a wonderful Easter, Christmas, or birthday gift idea for your grandson.
