    My kiddo is three. Every year, including the Christmas he was incubating (lol), my parents have gotten pictures. Prints in nice frames, mugs, clocks, shirts, etc. I'd like to do something different this year.

    Any grandparent favorite gifts y'all have gotten from your grandbaby(ies)?

    Yes--a coffee mug with a photo of the child. Vista print is where I order mine. They also have mouse pads.

    I'm not a grandparent, but how about an appointment for an informal photo session-- so they can get a fabulous picture of them WITH their grandchild?

    I'm not a gparent...but I've gotten gparents a frame that says something about grandkids or gparent. I took the pic to put in.

    We also got ornaments to put lil ones pic in. Our even bought kits at like a hobby lobby to make our own ornaments!

    We do a footprint/handprint craft like a reindeer... always a big hit.

    I'm a new grandparent, and I love anything that comes from my granddaughter. Last year, my son and daughter in law gave us a picture of the three of them! I love it! I also like Alice's idea...how special it would be to have a photo session!
    How about a calendar with pictures of your child at different times of the year? Or something with with handprints?

    Not a grandparent, but every year we've had our son, who is 3, make something for grandparents. First two years it was handprint ornaments, last year was a coffee cup he decorated with sharpies and this year we made stepping stones with his handprint and name.
