I can’t speak for everyone, but I can tell you that my grandparents are some of the most difficult people to shop for. They seem to have everything. And though it’s been tough, over the years, I have been able to find some gifts that they’ve both appreciated. Today, I’m sharing a gift guide for grandparents that lists some things geared specifically for senior citizens. A little bit practical and very thoughtful, these gift ideas are sure to be a hit with the grandparents on your list.

Here are some thoughts as to why these items made my favorites list on my gift guide for grandparents.
ANCESTRY HEALTH – By now, you’ve probably heard about the DNA test that satisfies the curiosity of knowing where you came from. This test takes that a bit farther by revealing how DNA might influence health conditions that might be hereditary. I know that my grandparents spend a lot of time and energy focusing on their health. Having additional knowledge about their own health and potential conditions they’ve passed down would empower them to take preventative steps.
FOLDABLE TABLE/LAPTOP TRAY – Both of my grandparents like to spend time on their respective devices. Grams kills it at her Sudoku app on her iPad. This handy tray allows a convenient space to rest either a tablet or a laptop at an incline while also allowing a flat surface for a cup of tea. Win win!
AUTO SWIVEL SEAT – As we age, certain things become just a tad more difficult. Getting in and out of the car can be a challenge for people who have some mobility limitations. This seat makes it easier to get in and out and drive where you need to be.
CRACKER BARREL GIFT CARD – Sometimes you just have to go the classic route. My grandparents are huge fans of the Cracker Barrel chain and love to eat there. The nice thing about this gift is that it can also be used to purchase merchandise in the Old Country Store if they find something there they love!
DIGITAL TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE – This handy gauge has a light which makes it easier to properly place the nozzle in the dark. It also features an easy-to-read digital display. It’s a handy tool to keep in the glove compartment.
TV HEADPHONES – These wireless headphones easily connect to most TV sets. They allow people who’ve experienced some hearing loss to engage in a favorite show or movie without the use of subtitles or excessive volume that disrupts the rest of the household.
ECHO SHOW – The Echo Show is a great alternative to FaceTime for people who don’t have iPhones. It allows grandparents to stay connected with their loved ones, no matter how much distance keeps them apart. The nice thing about it is that it doesn’t require users to maintain Amazon Prime so it’s affordable for even people with limited incomes.
WINE GIFT BOX – The perfect gift for discerning grandparents who want to raise a toast every now and then, this gift allows the recipient to choose from an impressive selection of wines for front-door delivery.
COZY COMPRESSION SOCKS – My grandpa has been wearing compression socks for years to help boost blood flow to his lower limbs. These pairs are the highest quality I’ve ever found and super cozy, too!
