Three great gift ideas or grandpa or grandma this holiday season


Skip the “World’s Best Grandpa” coffee mug this year and treat your grandpa or grandma with an extra special gift this year!

Whether it’s their first year as grandparents or they’re experienced at the job, grandparents play an important role in your kids’ lives and deserve a great holiday gift that will warm their hearts.

1. A customizable cookbook

My Family Cookbook allows grandparents to keep track of their family’s favorite recipes and gives space to include photos, tips and notes for future generations.

This unique recipe book includes space for over 80 recipes – from grandma’s lasagna to her famous bundt cake! Ask loved ones to contribute their favorite dish to pass along through generations.

This gift can be found at for $35.

Similar, PH Pottery offers a recipe plate, which transfers a popular family recipe onto a handmade ceramic plate for $50.

2. Voice controlled speaker

Grandpa or grandma may need help with setup, but a device like the Amazon Echo or Google Home will help them easily ask for the daily weather, request a song, turn off lights or find out the news.

This virtual helper responds to voice commands, which means that someone with limited vision or reduced finger dexterity can easily use it.

Your grandparents can enjoy more independence, even with mobility issues. These devices also offer medication reminders and have the option to schedule alerts for other events happening that day.

If they can’t recall someone’s birthday or a code to their garage, these voice controlled speakers can help.

3. Personalized picture frame

If grandma and grandpa aren’t savvy with email and texting you can set them up with a digital photo frame. Some high-tech options allow you to send new pictures directly to the frame!

Amazon offers a family tree frame to showcase all the grandchildren in a crafty display. You can also find personalized grandparent frames at most stores during the holiday season.
