Grandma’s Holiday Wishlist – Guest Post

With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you will buy your loved ones. Kids and siblings are relatively easy to buy for, as are parents, but what about grandparents? If your grandmother is anything like mine, then you know that it isn’t necessarily always easy to shop for her. She knows what she wants, and is less likely to be pleased with trivial gifts. Read on for three great gift ideas for granny.

Vacuum Cleaner
This is one of those gifts with which you can’t go wrong. Everyone needs a clean house, making this gift a universal pleaser. Dyson vacuums are top-quality and reasonably priced. The Dyson multi-floor vacuum is lightweight and versatile, and features Root Cyclone™ technology and a quick-draw Telescope Reach™ wand; alternately, the Dyson DC25 Animal Upright Vacuum Cleaner is great for pet owners, as it has a mini turbine head with a brushbar that spins 90 times per second, along with the aforementioned Root Cyclone™ technology. Both models come with Ball™ technology, ensuring easy maneuverability.

Coffee Maker
One of my favorite memories growing up was the smell of coffee brewing in my grandma’s kitchen as I awoke in the morning and headed to the dining room for breakfast. Rather than buying a cheap coffee maker that doesn’t stand out from the crowd, why not look into a French press coffee maker? This will ensure a fresh-tasting cup of coffee each and every time. The Bodum Chambord Coffee Press is inexpensive and comes in a variety of sizes (12, 17, 34, or 51 ounces), making it ideal for the casual to serious coffee drinker, and everyone in-between. I recommend that you buy one with a glass carafe, as opposed to plastic, as glass is more durable. Also take the time to look into Bodum Canteens, which are double wall and transparent, and come in 3, 6, or 13.5 ounces.

Spa Package
Your grandma has lived a long, full life, and has raised a family of her own. Why not treat her to a spa package to show her your appreciation? A visit to the spa has undeniable benefits, and will leave her feeling pampered and loved. In addition to the psychological benefits to being queen for a day, a visit to the spa reduces stress, and soothes sore joints and muscles. The human touch has been shown to be beneficial, and your granny will glow when it’s all said and done. If you are itching for a good massage and beauty treatment, why not book a package for two, and spend the day with your grandma? She’ll love every minute of it!

As you can see, with a little thought and creativity, you can find the perfect gift for everyone in your family, especially the ones who you may have always thought of as difficult to buy for. By taking the individual needs of your grandma into account, you can be sure of finding the perfect gift at the perfect price, and wowing her this year.
