Gift Guide: Spoiling Your Grandparents Who Want Nothing

Grandparents are the absolute hardest to shop for, in my opinion. They don't want any more "stuff," but you want to spoil them! With those thoughts in mind, I tend to lean toward either absolutely practical gifts, nostalgic gifts or just-because-it's-nice gifts. Here's some of what I came up with:

Grandparent Gifts
  1. Get them caught up on the newest PBS sensation Downton Abbey.
  2. Add a new fancy necklace to Grandma's jewelry box. I like this classic, but colorful necklace, $38 at Anthropologie.
  3. Bring some classic modernity to her dining table with new napkins, $18 at Terrain.
  4. Give them a flashback to the soda shops of their youth with a chic cake stand, $68 at Terrain.
  5. Spoil Grandpa with locket cuff links, $120 at Red Envelope.
  6. Give the gift of entertainment with a movie theater gift card, Netflix subscription or Hulu.
And, I couldn't find a great picture to illustrate this idea, but help them document the family history for the rest of you by gifting an membership!
