We asked people over 50 all about their gift-giving habits when it comes to grandchildren. Turns out we love to spoil our grandkids – and we're willing to pay a lot to do so.

According to our latest study, over 50s are willing to dig deep into their pockets and spend big on grandkids.

Our survey shows that the over 50s are set to spend a whopping £140 on each of their grandkids at Christmas in the hopes of getting the right present.

But do you remember when times were simple, and toys were even simpler?

We wanted to know how kids today would manage with toys from the past – and the results were interesting. Watch below for their reactions...

Times and toys have certainly changed. We understand it can be tough to buy for your grandkids these days, and with all the choice around it's hard to know where to start!

We've put together our Grandchildren's Christmas Gift Generator to help you find the perfect present for your grandkids. With gifts for toddlers to teens, there's something for everyone.
