10 Gifts That Will Bring Joy to Any Grandparent’s Day
National Grandparents Day is only weeks away.
The first Sunday after Labor Day marks National Grandparents Day, falling on Sept. 12 this year. Even if you and your family can’t spend the day with loved ones, a gift can let them know you’re thinking of them — and deliver some joy to their day.
Packaged in a beautiful gift box featuring artwork selected from The New York Botanical Garden’s world-renowned archive of botanical illustrations, this stunning tea set will impress any grandma or grandpa from the very start. It comes complete with an elegant teacup and lid, a tea tray and five tea blends.
This is a solid choice for anyone who enjoys entertaining. (Can’t you just hear your grandparents telling everyone you got them this gift every time they pull it out?) Functional and fashionable, this gorgeous board can be personalized with a last name, initials, a special date and more.
Name something everyone uses every day. That’s right, hand soap! This goat milk hand wash, made with essential oils and botanical extracts, will keep your loved ones’ hands clean and make them smell great. We consider the ceramic caddy a bonus that will dress up any countertop.
Give someone you love the gift of not having to figure out what to make for dinner! Unlike other meal delivery services, which require prepping and cooking, Freshly meals are ready to just heat and eat. The single-serving meals come with easy steps for heating; all your grandparents need to do is push the microwave button.
Made from seaweed, fruits and flowers, Misaky Tokyo’s kohakutou, otherwise known as Japanese crystal treats, will be sure to dazzle. The candies have a hard, crunchy exterior, but those who have yet to bite into these gems will be surprised to find a satisfying, chewy interior. Choose from gorgeous crystals, hearts, fruits and more, but for a more heartfelt gift for grandparents, go for the 12-piece Messenger Box, which includes a message when you open the box. The dividers that hold each of the delicate pieces can be used to hold jewelry.
If you can’t think of anything your grandparents need, an edible gift is a great option — and who doesn’t love cookies? Choose from 10 different flavors to create your own dozen. With gluten-free and even vegan options, there is definitely something here for everyone.
Have a grandparent who isn’t very technologically advanced? No problem! This touch-screen digital photo frame allows you to instantly send photos to loved ones. The Wi-Fi connected frame will hold up to 8,000 photos, which means Grandma and Grandpa never have to miss a moment.
These portable, collapsible rocking chairs are perfect for everything from sitting by a campfire to watching kids play sports. The carry handles make them easy to transport, too, so there’s never a reason for grandma or grandpa to be uncomfortable again.
Forget the coasters; don’t worry about heavy, hot mugs. These beautiful glasses are cool to the touch when filled with fresh-brewed coffee, and they stay condensation-free when filled with ice and water.
