Five Great Grandpa Aprons

Discover five fun aprons for the grandfather in your life!

My grandfathers are both gone. One I did not have the pleasure of knowing; the other, I knew as a child and as a teenager. I have fond memories of him and remember him as being quiet and gentle at least to his three grandchildren. I remember him offering support by just being there. My mother often tells me that when I was a baby my grandfather often checked on me, making sure that I was okay whether I was sleeping or playing.
Five Great Grandpa Aprons

I never had the opportunity to give my grandfather an apron and, to be perfectly honest, it would not have been a suitable gift idea for him. A man cooking was definitely not the norm of the time or in our family. However, we all know that is different now and if there is a grandpa doing the cooking and/or grilling at your family get togethers, one of the grandfather-themed aprons reviewed here on this page ought to make a fun, affordable and practical gift idea.

Everybody knows that grandpas are perfect at least in the eyes of their grandchildren, which is what the first aprons celebrate. 

Listed in no particular order but shown somewhere in the picture opposite this text, our first apron reads Nobody's Perfect but if your name is Grandpa, You're Pretty Damn Close. Find it here on Amazon. 

Next up, The Best Grandpa Ever apron. Available in a number of colors, you will find it here on Amazon. 

If you want a grandfather-themed apron with a grilling reference the Best Grillin' Grandpa Ever apron, found here, ought to suit.

Another choice with a barbecuing reference would be the Grandpa to Some Bar-B-Q Master to Others apron, which seems appropriate for the grandfather who takes a lot of pride in his grilling skills. I love how colorful it is. It is shown in the top box in the picture opposite the text and you will find it here on Amazon.

A personal favorite of mine is the Great Dads Get Promoted To Grandfather apron, which I think would make an amazing gift for a new grandfather or for a grandfather who does not yet know that he is going to be a grandfather. Wouldn't that be a fun and totally unexpected surprise from the expectant parents or of course for any man who has already been promoted to grandfather. Find it on Amazon here.

Edited after publication to say that I found one more great Grandpa apron. This one is also cute for the grandfather who is intensely into his grilling be that in a good or not-so-good way. Stand Back, Grandpa is Grillin' is perfect for a serious griller or for grillers like my husband and father-in-law who are sometimes perhaps a bit distracted when manning the barbecue. Find it on Amazon here

That's it, my short list of five six fun aprons for the granddads you love. Which one suits your grandfather best?

See you
in the kitchen!

  1. Like you, I never knew one of my grandfathers. I also only knew my other grandfather into my teen years and I never remember seeing him cook. I do think that was a generational thing. The men in my life now definitely cook and several of my brothers, as well as my own father, are grandfathers. I have seen them wear aprons! The aprons for grandfathers you have featured are fantastic. I love your idea of making that special announcement by giving the "soon to be" grandfather that awesome apron. What a really fun article about great gifts!

  2. I’m glad that more men are sharing or taking on the cooking responsibilities these days. It’s hard to find good gifts for grandfathers, who often already have most of what they need or want. These aprons are something most grandpas would not already own, and giving a Great Dads Get Promoted to Grandfathers apron to a grandpa-to-be is a terrific gift idea!

  3. Lol, the Apron series is total fun! Before reading all these reviews I had no idea there were so many apron choices for basically any occasion. Great gift idea, or hostess gift. I love the one that says, "stand back, Grandpa is Grillin' lol

  4. I love all of these aprons! And yes, every Granddad ( current generation of them ) deserves at least one that touts his abilities at the grill. This is a fun series and I'm enjoying it immensely! Thanks Brenda!

  6. Love this selection of 'Grandpa' aprons. I had just the one grandfather and, like you, he was not a cook, much less a griller. but my dad WAS and so was my hubby. Brenda, your idea of newly expectant parents giving the gift of a grandpa apron as a way of announcing he'll be a grandfather is a terrific idea!
