It’s that time of year again. The Christmas decorations are already up at Wal-Mart. I even noticed a chance of snow in the forecast! Gift giving can be a daunting task for some. Grandparents can be especially hard to shop for because, let’s face it, they usually have everything they need at this point.

However, I have compiled a top 10 list of items that I think that grandparents will find really useful and some, dare I say, fun!


  • The Silver Mother. This is really an awesome device. From pill reminders to sleep analysis, it has it all. Go see more on Amazon now by clicking here.
  • The Nest Thermostat. Another great device that’s going to both save them money and give you peace of mind. As a rule, generally the elderly tend to be cold. Keep them warm this winter with the Nest! Check it out on Amazon now by clicking here.
  • FitBit. I bet you saw this one coming. While I don’t think that your grandparents should necessarily be running a marathon, (wait, if they do though, that’s amazing!) this handy little device will be great for helping them try to get a little exercise everyday. It also will give them some feedback on their pulse to make sure they aren’t overdoing it. Take a look at Amazon’s awesome deals now by clicking here!
  • iPad. This one, I can say from experience, is a spectacular gift for grandparents. Being able to get pictures of their grandkids, play Majong, and read books are just a few activities they can use the iPad for to bring them joy. Head over to Amazon to look at the specifics by clicking here.
  • Kindle Fire. This is a great alternative to the iPad. While it’s not quite as fancy as the iPad, it still can do a lot of what the iPad can. The touch screen is the best bet as they don’t have to mess with the keyboard and buttons. Look at Amazon’s great deal on Kindle’s by clicking here.
  • Roomba. Doesn’t everyone want one of these? I know I do. Make cleaning easier on your grandparents by getting this adorable cleaning robot. They will certainly love it and you can be happy knowing you made it so grandma can stop sweeping! Check out Amazon’s hot deals on the Roomba by clicking here.
  • Amazon Fire TV. Okay, this one you probably are thinking I’m a little crazy, but I’m not! When I worked in the home health care field, a few of our patient’s families got this for them and they loved it! They can watch all the old movies, TV shows, etc. that they want. They also can pause and restart as needed so if they want to nap in between they can. Head over to Amazon to see their stellar deals by clicking here.

Once you get beyond the initial set up with these options, these are incredible gifts that keep on giving. You may have to field a couple phone calls or visits here and there. However, it’s going to be worth it knowing they are enjoying a great present thanks to you.
