Grandparents deserve the finer things in life. They’ve put in their work raising kids and now it’s time to reap the rewards… at Christmas or Hanukkah! To help family shoppers out, we’ve put together a list of luxuries that won’t break the bank. These special gifts are ideal for older folks, and many of them celebrate the warm fuzzies that only come from family. Get Grandpa a lamp that lights up to let him know you’re thinking of him. Collect all of Grandma’s stories about her childhood in a keepsake journal. Share photos of the grandkids via digital frame or hardcover photo album. Money can’t buy happiness, but sometimes it can help foster family connection. And during the holiday season, isn’t that what we’re all looking for?
If your grandparents don’t go for super sentimental items, we’ve also got some lighter suggestions: a funny doormat, an engaging puzzle or the latest e-reader. Read on and discover this season’s top picks for grandparents.

This set of lamps is such a sweet gift. Keep one and give the other to grandparents. If you touch your lamp, the other one glows too, letting your loved ones know you’re reaching out.
