Gift Guide: Grandparent Gifts

Your mom and dad, in-laws or any older relative that needs a little love this year here are a ton of ideas to bring a smile to their face. If you need MORE ideas check out my Amazon storefront with tons of lists.

Captioned Heart Snapshot Mix® Photo Art We got my FIL one of these Minted Heart photo collages for Christmas and he adores it. I captioned with events from the year like his son turning 40 and trips we all made together. The process was easy with drag and drop photos and options for color or black and white.

Williams Sonoma Classic Tartan Adult Apron I love a great apron and recently I was doing an IG story and realized how stained mine have gotten! I ordered this beautiful tartan plaid one from Williams Sonoma and immediately knew what a great gift it would make. It has a slight wool feel with but is a cotton/ linen blend and edged in red grosgrain ribbon.

eufy by Anker, BoostIQ RoboVac 12, Robot Vacuum Cleaner While I don’t have this amazing Robot Vacuum I heard plenty of you do and LOVE it! If you have parents that are getting to the age when cleaning is a chore (wait I might already be there) they could really enjoy this robovac.

SOMA Cool Nights Long Sleeve Pajama Set Let’s just say I have more sets than I would care to count, I gifted 2 sets to my mom and 2 sets to my MIL and they are both hooked! Cool nights pjs are a soft jersey that keep you cool when you sleep but come in a beautifully packaged set. I love this year’s holiday prints with buffalo plaid and this snowflake.

Echo Show 10 (4th generation) with Movement and Alexa With many grandparents unable to travel the past 1.5 years I think we all have relied on video calls! This Alexa enabled device can video call another Echo show easily as well as show pictures, news and our family favorite.. ask random questions to it during dinner!

Williams Sonoma Three Days of Italian Entrees What says I love you like food! These frozen meals are such a great gift for those parents that maybe don’t love to cook. If your parents aren’t big fans of Italian food no worries Williams Sonoma has a ton of food gift options.

Ugg Mens Ascot Slipper & Ugg Women’s Ansley Slipper These slippers are my gold standard of comfort and class. There are tons of others out there but to be honest for grandparents who have been taking care of us for years these are an incredible gift.

Pistachio Bowl My dad has loved pistachios my entire life (and gave me that love as well) so these genius bowls with a bottom shell catcher is perfect for when he wants to snack and watch golf, or whatever sports game might be on.

Rose Pruning Thorn Proof Gardening Glove My MIL is an avid gardener and every few years she needs a new set of rose gloves because hers get worn out! This set from Amazon basics come in a few colors and are not too expensive.

OttLite Dual Shade LED Floor Lamp with USB Charging Port My MIL loves to quilt and sew but seeing can be difficult. When She showed me her new OttLite I wanted one for myself! This has a stand for an iPad, USB charger built in and dual shades to move the light around as needed. A perfect gift for any crafter, reader or ya know grandparent.

RBT Electric Corkscrew Wine Opener Modern and luxurious, this electric corkscrew effortlessly removes wine corks from the bottle on contact, then automatically ejects them from the spiral. Seamless-all metal construction, classic black and decadent gold tones bring the ambiance of an upscale bar to the comfort of home

Squirrel Solution200 Squirrel-proof Bird Feeder My in-laws have tried nearly every bird feeder on the market that is supposed to keep squirrels away. I don’t think they have tried this one yet so it’s on my list!

    These are thoughtful and useful ideas. We just bought an Echo for my sweet Daddy. Thinking the light and bird feeder are next.
