grandparents
Sure, the simple solution for a grandparent gift is to buy something with their grandchild’s face on it, but we wanted to get a bit more creative to celebrate the family elders (and sometimes babysitters) this year. There are personalized picks to highlight their beloved home or family pet, gifts perfect for the newly-retired and ready to (safely) travel, and tech gadget gifts to make their lives easier. Read on for our picks, and yes, some include space to highlight the grandkids.

The Everymom’s gift guide is curated by our editorial team with some items hand-picked by editors from our sponsors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. As always, we only choose items we genuinely love, use, have purchased ourselves, or recommend.
