Christmas gifts for grandparents

Grandparents usually love all the presents they get from their grandchildren. Still you want to surprise them with something they would really want. We have some suggestions we hope grandma and grandpa will enjoy for Christmas 2012.

1. Scrapbooks

Of course we don’t mean that you just give the empty book to your grandparents. Make them a scrapbook or photo album that they will enjoy. Fill it with details about your family or things they love. The scrapbooking kits from our shop are already equipped with lots of basic material you need. We also have special Christmas scrapbooks if you want to keep up the Christmas theme.

Christmas gifts for brothers

Brothers are usually easygoing and don’t care too much about Christmas presents from their siblings. So this year you could surprise them with a gift they would have never expected… and maybe haven’t even seen before. Check out our Christmas gift ideas 2012.

1. Popin’ Cookin’ DIY candy sets

It’s the latest thing from Japan and we bet your brother has never done anything like that before. No matter if he is six, 16 or 26, this will be something he won’t forget. With the funny Japanese Popin’ Cookin’ DIY candy sets you can make your own gummy candy by mixing powers with water. And the shapes are more than crazy as you can see with those dinosaur and insect candy sets that we picked. And yes, it is fully edible.

3. Pocket warmers

This might not seem cool at first, but your brother will definitely appreciate it. Because they constantly forget their gloves in winter time or think they don’t need them. And that’s for sure, they would never get a hand warmer themselves. So do it for them.
