11 Best Gift Ideas for Grandparents

gifts for grandparents

Smart garden grow kit

A mindblowing gift for those who have a green-thumb and love plants but can’t really go out into the garden as much as they used to or live in an apartment. This intelligent indoor device yields fresh fruits and herbs in just three simple steps: plug in, insert pre-seeded plant capsules, and add water once a month. From there, technology takes over. The nasa-inspired soil delivers plant-specific amounts of oxygen, nutrients, and water, while an energy-efficient led system gives your budding crops an exact dose of direct light.



A ‘my family cookbook’

Allow the secret family recipes to live on in this book! Let your seniors fill in their recipes in a personalized cookbook so that traditions can live on in your family for generations. Protect the family heirloom dishes with this cookbook that allows you to write in your own recipes. It can also be a fun activity for you and your grandparents to fill this out together and bond over family gossip, secrets and cooking.

Amazon echo

You might need to help them set up their amazon echo, but after that your grandparents will love the ease of asking about the weather or requesting to hear a song with the sound of their voice without having to stress over using new-fangled technology.


A personalized notebook

For your grandparents to sit down and write down their life stories, humorous adventures and details, so that you and your family have the history forever. This is my absolute favorite because it is so personal.

Foreo issa rechargeable toothbrush

Grandma and grandpa are already brushing their teeth each morning and night, which is why they’ll love this toothbrush that features bacteria-resistant silicone bristles and a super easy to grip handle that makes oral care easier than putting shoes on. It also gets a full 365 uses on a single charge, so they’ll never have to worry about having enough battery on their trips to anywhere, and they’ll be thrilled with healthy, whiter teeth.

Family tree frame holder

A beautiful, personalized gift that shows the love and dedication put in by your grandparents into making this family blossom. It makes for a beautiful keepsake and conversation starter for your grandparents. You can put in as many wacky (or elegant) pictures as you want. Grandparents sure do love to show off their children and grandchildren, just saying.

Contigo autoseal transit stainless steel travel mug

A secure travel mug that doesn’t spill or leak, and is the ultimate commuter companion. This reusable stainless steel travel mug is made to be spill-proof, has vacuum insulation that keeps drinks hot for up to 5 hours, from your morning commute to your afternoon pick-me-up. It’s the perfect gift for anyone. Plus your grandparents will love this for preserving their best outfits, their sanity, and keeping their drinks super warm (or even cold) for hours.

Zen sand kit

Let your grandparents learn how to make a zen garden from the comforts of their own home and express their creativity without limits with this zen garden kit. It comes with a base, sand, a bamboo rake, incense and a mini stone incense holder. Light some incense, grab the bamboo rake and gently pattern the sand into patterns that make you think of rippling water or waves. This can help boost their concentration without straining them too much.

Grandparent/grandchild activity set

These “adventure decks” prompt grandparents and grandkids to do fun and silly activities together, so they’ll never be at a loss for bonding activities. It’s guaranteed to help create a lot of treasured memories.


Heated blanket

Perfect for keeping you or your grandparents warm and are a great year-round sleep accessory for those who tend to feel excessively cold while asleep. In addition to providing warmth, heated blankets can benefit sleepers in other ways, such as alleviating the symptoms of certain medical conditions, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, aches and pains associated with menstrual cycles. Heated blankets usually come with several heating options that is best suited for your needs.

Family celebrations board

This gift is heavy duty for grandparents: not only does it serve as a “brag board” for the number of kids and grandkids they have and a very interesting conversation starter, it also keeps track of all of the birthdays and anniversaries.

Although, a lot of these would be best accompanied with a sweet and thoughtful handmade card.
