Grandad Present Ideas
The patriarch of the family, granddads are often looked up to for inspiration and guidance. They are well-respected and loved, providing their families with wisdom and knowledge. They have seemingly seen and done it all and buying a gift for a grandad can prove to be a rather tricky task.
We’re here to help you in your search for the perfect granddad presents. Let’s look at three types of granddads and three of our best-selling trees:
The Intellectual Granddad
This type of granddad likes to spend his time re-reading the classics—Moby Dick, Great Expectations—and spending some time each morning with his newspaper and cup of coffee. Concerned about current affairs and of the ilk that one is never too old to learn something new, the perfect gift for the intellectual granddad would be one of our oak tree gifts. Renowned for its massive size and seen as a symbol of strength, your granddad will enjoy growing one of those hearty trees just as much as he enjoys sprawling beneath its heavy boughs in summertime with a book and a cool drink.
The Active Granddad
He feels a fraction of his age and is always zipping about, trying out the latest gadgets, jet-setting on holidays around the world and thoroughly enjoying himself. The active granddad rarely stays put and always has a new project on the go or a new idea in the mix. The ideal tree gift for him would be something low maintenance but with a story to tell … sound familiar? One of the longest surviving tree species, the Wollemi Pine tree from Australia is an evergreen tree hailing from the Jurassic period of history. This unique tree gift if a great conversation piece and its low-maintenance care makes it great for a granddad on the go.
He’s worked all his life and now that he’s taken his retirement, he enjoys relaxing with a book or project, looking after the grandkids and tending his garden. He has time on his hands and no longer feels the rush of the fleeting hour, the retiree granddad would be a perfect fit for one of our fruit trees. We have a variety of fruit producing trees from apple trees to citrus trees and walnut trees. Simply choose which type of food you think he’d enjoy nibbling most and you’ll be spoiled for choice.
