Best Holiday Gifts for Grandparents

Celebrate the grandparents in your life with these nine meaningful gifts.

Grandparents are incredibly special. The spoil our kids wholeheartedly, and love them unconditionally. They change diapers, buy presents, make meals, read bedtime stories, kiss boo-boos, and basically act as a second set of parents. And these amazing people deserve some love around the holidays. While we adore handmade gifts, we also rounded up the best gifts for grandparents you can send.

Holiday Orchids: Imagine their delight when this elegant plant arrives on their doorstep this holiday season. This orchid-poinsettia duo comes in a 10-inch smooth white planter and hugs a 5-inch premium white orchid with a yellow center and a 4-inch red poinsettia, both topped with moss. Water the poinsettia once a week when the soil surface is dry. Water the orchid once a week with either 3 ice cubes or 1/4 cup of water. Just Add Ice Comet Orchid ($72)
