Gifts for Grandparents

Though it sounds like putting chains on your granddad or grandma’s feet, in reality it is just the opposite. With age, your grandparents must be facing problem in maintaining the balance while walking and a fall may be fatal, as the bones get more fragile. If your grandparents live on a snowy place you can give them these walking chains which are actually a coil system attached with the shoes. They help the people to have a strong grip on the ice and snow and prevent them from having a fall. These chains just slide over the shoes without causing any irritation while walking. Your grandparents would surely love this gift when they would walk around the snowy covered streets steadily, without a walking stick!

Your grandma must be having some special pictures or wall hanging in her house. You can add beauty to her interior décor by gifting her with a cordless picture light. This light has a polished or antiqued brass body, which looks very elegant on any room style. The light runs on batteries, which can last up to 40 hours. Your grandma can now highlight her beautiful wall hangings and pictures without the ugly cords. She would be overjoyed on getting this gift.
This gadget would also be the perfect gift for your grandparents. This gadget normally comes with numerous LEDs that produce IR (infrared) heat and stimulates different areas on joints and muscles. The IR heat stimulates those stiff areas and makes the blood circulate. This heat is quite safe and approved by NASA and FDA. As per a study made by NASA, this type of pain reliever could also lessen the pain up to 37 percent. Being very much lightweight, these are comfortable to hold as well.
Neck & Shoulder Massager:
With age, it is natural that your grandparents would be facing pain in the neck and shoulder region. You can save them some dollars from going to the physiotherapists or hiring a masseur – by giving a neck and shoulder massager. These could be ideal gifts for Grandparents’ Day. The massage device compresses air in and out of twelve bladders, along the sides of the head, neck region and under the shoulder. Thus applying this device loosens the muscles that become stiff with age, relieve soreness and stimulate circulation. The massager can be tied to a chair or your grandparent can even lie on it. It also comes with a remote control so that your grandparent can control and focus on a particular area while getting his or her body relaxed. Your granddad or grandma would certainly feel elated to have this gift that would let them feel younger.

How many times have you heard your grandma complaining of your granddad’s snoring keeping her awake all night? Now, you can reduce those awful noises made by granddad by gifting a snore relief wrist band. This high-tech wrist band comes with a microphone that can distinguish the sound of snoring from all other noises coming from air-conditioners or refrigerators. The band uses some sort of electrical stimulation on the median nerves on the inner side of the wrist, thus compelling the person snoring to change position. This relieves snoring and the sound lessens. However, before getting this gift for your granddad, you should consult the doctor and make sure it is totally harmless for him. This band is not recommended to be used by people having pacemaker. The band would definitely lessen the snoring noise and thus bringing a new zing into your grandparent’s married life.
