Gifts for Grandparents: Best Bang for Your Buck This Holiday Season
Kevin Cleary

Yes, the holiday season will soon be upon us, and with it comes the gift-giving season. This year many of us may be feeling the financial pinch of the coronavirus pandemic and need to shop with a little more frugality. By searching for the best value for our holiday season dollars, we can show those we love how much we care for them. Finding the best gifts for our grandmas and grandpas that can benefit them the greatest while watching our wallet can be tricky. We here at HPFY can show you how to get the best bang for your buck when shopping for your grandparents this holiday season.

Identify Their Needs

The holiday season (no matter which holiday you celebrate) can give all of us indigestion when it comes to the cost of all the gifts we may need to buy for friends and family. When looking for gifts for your grandparents, understanding what their actual needs are can go a long way in identifying a gift that will be not only appreciated, but needed and used. As we age, some medical issues and physical limitations may become more prevalent and they can include:

  • Arthritis
  • Limited range of motion
  • Unsteady gait
  • Diminished eyesight
  • Breathing issues
  • Circulatory problems

Gift Options for Nana & Grandpa

Finding the best value for your holiday dollars is important in these trying times. Understanding what our grandparents might need can go a long way in deciding what might be the right gift and a great value. 10 great gift options you may want to consider include:

  • AIRFREE Tulip 1000 Air Purifier: Ideal for compact spaces, this air purifier eliminates mold, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and even pet dander while not emitting any ozone or ions. It’s small and portable design is completely silent and has filter less technology that eliminates the need for filter purchases or the need to remember when to change the filter.
  • Freedom Extra Long Flexible Drinking Straw: This flexible drinking straw eliminates the need to lift drinks. This can be ideal for those in wheelchairs or who might be a little less steady or have a diminished grip. There is no need to stoop over to the level of the cup and can even be used in restaurants. Those suffering from arthritis can benefit greatly from this adjustable drinking straw that is washable and reusable.
  • Honeywell Portable HEPAClean Tabletop Air Purifier: Airborne contaminants such as pet hair, smoke, dust, and pollen can all be removed from the air due to the HEPA filter that captures up to 99% of these airborne nasties. It can circulate and filter the air in a room up to five times per hour. The manual control with easy grip knobs are ideal for our elderly grandparents and has three separate cleaning levels while being small enough to be portable.
 
  • Comfort Grip Curved Utensils: In order to minimize the upper extremity movement, these curved utensils have a 7/8 inch diameter handle with molded fingers. Our elderly grandparents can benefit from these latex-free utensils to make eating simpler. Available in a fork, soup spoon, or teaspoon and can be washed on the top shelf of your dishwasher.
  • Elastic Shoelaces: For those with limited hand mobility or dexterity, these allow our grandparents to tie their shoes once and then put on their shoes a little easier. They are constructed of durable elastic and can keep the user’s foot securely in place all day. With three available colors (black, white, brown) any shoe can benefit from these shoelaces sold in pairs.
  • Plastic Handle Swivel Utensils for Independent Eating: Anyone who suffers from a weak grip or other hand limitations can improve their ability to self-feed with these lightweight, stainless steel utensils. These can be used by those with Parkinson’s disease, stroke recovery, and arthritis or other gripping difficulties. They are BPA and phthalates free and are dishwasher safe up to 180°.
 
  • Economy Hip Kit: This kit is designed to aid those who may be recovering from a hip replacement, knee surgery, or back surgery and assist with bathing, dressing, and other everyday activities. It features a plastic sock aid, a reacher, long-handled shoehorn, and an 18-inch long-handled sponge to allow the user to maintain their independent living after surgery or may be suffering from arthritis or other mobility limitation.
  • Sure Grip Dining Utensils: These comfortably ribbed, 1 ½ inch wide handles can help grandma or grandpa who suffer from a weak grasp to securely use their utensils while eating. Ideal for the home or even a care center, these utensils are available in a teaspoon, tablespoon, fork, knife, spoon, and a soup spoon or can be purchased as a set.
  • 5-In-1 All Purpose Opener: 5-In-1 All Purpose Opener eliminates stress and discomfort on hands and easily opens cans, bottles and jars. This easy opener is ergonomically designed for a secure and comfortable grip and gently releases the vacuum seal on jars for easy opening. It is dishwasher safe.
 

Our grandparents should be remembered during the holiday season. Knowing what their physical limitations maybe can help you get the perfect gift while maximizing your holiday budget. Any gift that is usable and helps them maintain their independence and quality-of-life is the perfect gift for grandma and grandpa. Let them know how much they mean to you and that you care enough to make their lives better!!
