by Marina Avraam |

Becoming a grandparent for the first time is an exciting, emotional and incredibly rewarding experience. After all, grandparents are like second parents, and as such, deserve to be treated to a little something in anticipation of one of the most important roles in life.

Gifts for new grandparents can vary from fun novelty t-shirts to sentimental photo frames and lots in between. Being a grandparent is not always the most stress-free experience, so a pamper set for a little self-care evening is another fab idea for the grandma or grandpa to-be.

We've found all the best gifts for new grandparents that you can shop in time for the festive season. Check out our top picks below.
