If there’s anyone you ever have to thank for giving color to your life and lighting up your path, it’s your grandparents. After all, they’re the ones who take care of you not only when your parents are away, but to also make sure you’re doing fine, too.
Now that you’re older and can repay them for their efforts, we figured a thoughtful, handmade gift for your grandparents would surmise as a reminder that you acknowledge their efforts, and that you recognize their love for you. Today, we’re going to go over creating your own coupon book for grandparents to make them feel just that.
Coupon Ideas for Grandma and Grandpa
From a long list of handmade gifts you can give as a gift, coupons have got to be our favorite. They give your loved ones the opportunity to enjoy a special bonding time with you, wherever and whenever they want. This lets them feel that someone is looking out for them just the same, providing them with the option to keep and hold on to these gifts for as long as they want.
To make your own coupons for your grandparents, you’re first going to need a printable coupon template you can use as a base. Depending on their personalities and interests, you’re going to have to compile a list of fun activities and hobbies that your grandma and grandpa enjoy. Here are some examples below.
Aside from your own mother, there’s another woman in your life who loves you just the same. Here are ideas on what to use for your grandma coupons.

Coupon Gift Giving Ideas
Now that you have all your coupons ready, it’s time to pack them up neatly so you can wow your grandparents, and make them smile. With these ideas, not only will you be able to touch their hearts with your thoughtfulness, but they’ll also be able to see just how much effort you put into making them smile.
Making a coupon book for grandma and grandpa is one of the easiest and most straightforward ways to give them your present. Other than watching them get that amazing feeling when they realize it’s more than a plain old book of coupons, presenting it this way allows them easy access to all of the freebies and memories they can look forward to making with you.
Jar of Coupons
When you’re giving your gifts to your grandparents, aesthetics and convenience can also be a priority. In this case, consider placing all your coupons in a jar that your grandma and grandpa can place on their nightstand or table.
Then, either have them pick out the coupons they want to use one by one, or have them draw it out randomly when they’re looking for company. Either way, it’s a nice present that’s delightful to look at and use when they’re wanting to spend more time with you.
Just like any old present, anything can be made better with some ribbon. To do this, simply punch a hole at the corner of each coupon and thread through it a piece of yarn or twine to bring them all together. Whether you hand them out in a box or envelope is your choice, but something about the special touch of an elegant bow makes this gift feel especially handmade and memorable.
We all know that life is short. Because of this, we should all put in the effort to celebrate the moments we get to spend with our loved ones, especially our grandparents. We feel that coupons are one way to repay them, but there are definitely more ways than one to do so.
Nevertheless, let this be a reminder to give back to your loved ones from time to time, through the simplest of opportunities we get to have. At the end of the day, it’s also our mission to make our loved ones happy, which is why we should see to it that they’re happy in our presence wherever they go.
Ultimately, we hope these coupon ideas help to create a stronger bond for you and your grandma and grandpa. May you learn a thing or two from this journey, hopefully sparking up more ways to celebrate the treasured love you have for each other. Best of luck!
