Brainstorming gifts for the people closest to you can be tough — especially when they’re considerably older than you. But grandparents play an important role in our lives and the holidays are the perfect time to show them just how much they mean to us. You want to get something that’s thoughtful and special, but you might not know exactly what they want or need. And, while there’s nothing wrong with gifting a nice bottle of wine or a pretty scented candle, both feel like a little bit of a cop-out.
The trick to meaningful gifts is to choose things that are clever or useful. Think cute household items that won’t clash with other decor, next-level food gifts, or personalized gifts that might just make grandma or grandpa tear up. The following gift ideas below all fit into (at least) one of those categories and hit a variety of price points.
