Grandparent Gift Ideas

Legacybox Digitizing Kit

We gave this Legacybox kit to my parents and Robert’s parents a few years ago, and it was a great decision to digitize all of our special family photos and videos to preserve them forever.

Tranquility Weighted Blanket

This weighted blanket is different from most because it has temperature balancing technology, so if Grandma is always cold, this will warm her right up and reduce anxiety at the same time.

Personalized Handwritten Recipe Plate

This is such a thoughtful gift idea that will be treasured forever! Choose a loved one’s recipe in their own handwriting to have transferred on the plate and gift it for display or to use any time.

Aura HD Smart Digital Picture Frame

This digital picture frame allows you to send over 10,000 photos from your phone to instantly display photos and videos anywhere. Multiple family members can add photos/videos even from thousands of miles away so grandparents can see new images of their loved ones every day.

Birth Flower Necklace

This necklace with customizable birth month flowers is the best for a grandma who loves reminders of her grandkids. You can add several flowers to one strand, or you can layer multiple necklaces so she has a flower around her neck for each of her grandbabies.

Leather Recliner

This top grain leather down blend recliner is definitely a splurge (we own two of them and wrote a review of the recliner here). It is so unbelievably comfy and a huge upgrade for Grandpa’s “favorite chair”. If Grandpa has a large family with lots of grandkids, it’s a great gift for everyone in the family to pool together their money for one big wow gift.

Grandma’s Story & Grandpa’s Story Keepsake

This is a thoughtfully designed guided journal to help grandparents record their special memories and share them with the rest of the family. Definitely something that will be treasured forever that grandparents will enjoy doing.

Heated Stadium Seats

A great idea for those dedicated grandparents who always show up to support their grandkids’ sporting games.

Personalized Picnic Tote

Love this pretty wicker bottom tote perfect for a picnic for two! Or for toting along on roadtrips. It comes with portable wine glasses, plates, and cutlery too.

Custom Photo Art

A sweet way to display a special, treasured family photo.

Winter Fleece Robe

The softest, comfiest robe on the market so Grandma can be warm and cozy.

Push Pin Travel Map

If your grandparents are avid travelers in their retirement, give them this map to note all of the fun places they’ve been.

If Grandpa loves barbecuing, these gloves are beautiful, useful, and you can have them monogrammed to make them extra special.

Harry & David Deluxe Gift Tower

A delicious spread of snacks and sweets for the grandparents to munch on just because they deserve to be pampered.

Kindle Paperwhite

The perfect gift idea if Grandma or Grandpa loves reading. It comes with Kindle Unlimited to have access to over 2 million books and thousands of audiobooks.
