Figuring out gifts for grandparents can be hard. They’ve had more time to amass all the things they love and tend to have everything they need. So, it makes sense to opt for a sentimental gift, like a framed photo or personalized calendar. That might sound unappealing, and it’s true that there are a lot of pretty terrible options out there, but sentimental really doesn’t have to mean cheesy. The best photo gifts are meaningful and special, and grandparents clutch their heart because they’re touched, not horrified.

You can do better than a terrible T-shirt or flimsy scrapbook. These photo gifts for grandparents, including sleek prints, heirloom-worthy photobooks, and even a customizable puzzle (just stay with us here), are thoughtful, functional, and nice to look at. The grans deserve it.
