You may have grown up scrawling them handmade cards and gifting them macaroni necklaces, but now that your parents are grandparents, you’re on the hook for gifting them something a little more substantial.
After all, they’ve likely been there for you in ways you never could have imagined. As last-minute (and enthusiastic!) babysitters. As advice-givers and cheerleaders. As an extra set of arms for holding you and your babes through all the ups and downs.
To be clear, they don’t do all that because they’re in it for the gifts, but who doesn’t appreciate a thoughtful token of appreciation?
From Grandparents’ Day to the holidays, the best gifts for grandparents are ones that make them feel special and adored. From smart home devices that make life a little easier to heated throws and cozy slippers that make chilly nights a little warmer, we’ve rounded up a selection of gifts for grandma and grandpa that they’ll love just as much as the macaroni jewelry they’ve still got stashed in the attic.
