Tech Savvy

No one enjoy doings chores, especially ones that are hard on your body. Help your grandparents check one item off their to-do list by splurging the iRobot Roomba 980 ($899.99). The robot vacuums entire levels of a home (even under furniture!) with precision using visual navigation. Roomba can be activated manually or by using the iRobot HOME app. Charging is not required as the robot connects itself to its charging station when the battery is low. The only thing your grandparents need to do to maintain the item is empty the bin and clean the filter from time to time.


Buying meals and preparing them can be a serious hassle. Not to mention some older individuals can have trouble getting to and from a store, not to mention hauling heavy grocery bags. HelloFresh solves this issue by offering a subscription service (plans start at $9.90 per meal) which allows its recipients to choose healthy dishes, and have the needed ingredients to make said dish delivered right to their door. 

Always Cold

We all know that one person who is always cold. If you’re one of those people, the idea of leaving a hot shower on a winter day is terrible, but it doesn’t have to be! Brookstone sells a towel warmer ($99.99) which warms items to a toasty 120 degrees in just 10 minutes. Two oversized towels can fit in the warmer at a time. (This also works great for robes and blankets.)

Hard to Buy For

Still have absolutely no clue what to get your grandparents? A handy gift basket is a go-to when you’re stumped. After all, who doesn’t like treats? One of 1-800-Flowers.com’s best-selling gourmet baskets, Distinctive Fruit & Sweets (starting at $79.99), includes fresh fruit, nuts, chocolate and more, all of which arrives packaged in a wicker basket.
