Finding the perfect Christmas gift for your grandparents can be a tricky task. Fortunately for those who are not as skilled in the gift-giving department, we have compiled a list of the top 10 gifts your grandma or grandpa would love to receieve this 2014 holiday season.
1. Kölbs Bed Wedge Cushion— Help your grandparents lounge in comfort by giving them a little lift, a leg lift that is. The foam wedge cushion from Kölbs is designed to help alleviate symptoms of acid reflux, pressure on the lower back, joints, and also increase circulation. This gift retails for $42.99 on Target.com.
2. Personalized picture frame— Give the gift of a happy memory this Christmas. Start off by making a copy of one of your favorite photos of you posing with your grandparents and putting it inside one of ThingsRemembered.com’s silver beaded frames ($19.99). Add your own personal touch by having a special message engraved on the frame. If you prefer a dark color, a gunmetal version is available for $14.99.
3. Soup and cracker mugs— If your grandparents love to chow down on a nice, warm bowl of soup, consider gifting them CollectionsEtc.com’s two-piece ceramic mug set. Unlike most soup bowls, these cups offer a separate space to store crackers. The best part? They can also double as the perfect cup for cookies and milk. The mugs are dishwasher safe and retail for $12.99.
4. Apples to Apples— Consider buying your grandparents the board game everyone can’t stop talking about, Mattel’s Apples to Apples ($13). This unpredictable party card game forces players to compare two completely different entities in the hopes of having the best match. It is appropriate for ages 12 and up. For the best results, include four or more players.
5. Sit N Cycle— This piece of exercise equipment is all the rage. The Sit N Cycle Deluxe XL Bike Trainer is the trendiest low-resistance, hands-free workout device on the market. Not only is it light-weight and easy to transport, it’s also easy to adjust. The Sit N Cycle comes in four different colors, aqua, black, blue and red. It retails on QVC.com for $169.96.
6. Gardener’s seat— Gardening can be hard on a person’s body, so help your grandparents better enjoy the outdoor activity by gifting them the gardener’s seat from UncommonGoods.com. This light-weight, water-resistant folding chair will not only keep your grandparents’ clothes dirt-free while working in the yard, its also doubles as a tool bag. The seat holds up to 250 lbs. It is available now for $30.
7. Audible membership— For those whose eyesight may need a little assistance, or for those who are simply too busy to sit down and read, a three-month Audible.com membership ($45) is the perfect gift. Access to the site will give your grandparents the ability to download audio books from over 150,000 titles to their electronic devices.
8. Himalayan salt crystal foot detox blocks— If your family member is a fan of natural health aides, the Himalyan salt crystal detox blocks from Signals.com ($39.95) may be just what they’re looking for this holiday. By resting your feet on the blocks, the salt will supposedly help detox your body. The set also comes with a durable carry case.
9. Chocolate gift basket— For your grandparent with the persistent sweet tooth, buy them a Fannie May dark chocolate-covered strawberry gift basket from 1-800-Flowers.com.
