Gifts for the Grands

Hi friends! I’m back today with another holiday gift guide, and this one is the much-requested Gifts for the Grands!

You know, the people who have everything. The ones trying to downsize, not add to their clutter. The ones who prefer experiences over things…

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten // eleven // twelve // thirteen // fourteen // fifteen // sixteen // seventeen // eighteen // nineteen // twenty // twenty-one // twenty-two // twenty-three // twenty-four // twenty-five

Amy and I put our heads together and came up with a list of unique and thoughtful gift ideas for these very special people.

If you’ve been hanging around for a while, you might remember some of these gift ideas from years past, but we also came up with a bunch of new ones. The repeat ideas were the most popular sellers from previous years.

  1. The custom cookbook is such a neat idea. I would like some of these myself. I’m a grandma already….age 61. LOL I have the dyson vac. and air purifier and love both. I’ve been running the air purifier non stop with all the wild land smoke we have this week from the all the fires. 🙁

  2. Ha!I saw the title and thought it was for grandchildren! They are the “grands”! The graphic told me otherwise. I should forward this to my daughter!

  3. I was a grandmother at 41 when my son’s girlfriend had a little girl. I think a lot of your audience might be grandparents. The under bed light is a good idea and I love my Dyson.
