Gifts for Grandparents’ Day 2020
October 2 is approaching and Grandparents’ Day will also be a precious opportunity this year to dedicate a thought, a gift and time to spend together to grandfather and grandmother. If we want to do a gift grandparents do not necessarily have to make an important purchase: grandparents love to feel appreciated for what they do for their family and grandchildren, but to be able to make them happy it is enough to give them a thought, an original gift, perhaps personalized. Frames with photos, a t-shirt with an ironic or funny writing, a mug with his name or a special dedication are perfect, and grandparents will certainly also appreciate a job made by their grandchildren, done with love and commitment. However, we wanted to take a ride on Amazon, the largest marketplace in the world, where thousands of products are put on sale every day, to search for 10 gifts most suitable for Grandparents’ Day 2020.
Grandma tell me about yourself. A book to keep memories
A perfect book for grandparents who live on memories, who never stop telling and passing on experiences and memories to their grandchildren and children. In the book there is space to insert photographs, phrases, drawings together with the grandchildren and to write their own story. It is available for both grandmother and grandfather.
PRO: it is a large book, with hard cover and inside there is a track to follow to help grandfather or grandmother tell his story, from childhood to today.
VERSUS: there are no major flaws, some find it a bit repetitive.
MyHeritage DNA – DNA test kit
A kit to perform quickly a DNA analysis and rediscover your most ancient origins. With this kit you can not only get a detailed one ethnic analysis from 42 regions around the world, revealing the paths of one’s ancestors for generations, but thanks to a huge global database it is possible to match relatives from all over the world based on one’s DNA. The results are delivered through a fun and animated experience.
PRO: customer reviews are very positive. Who bought the kit declares that it is a surprising and decidedly original gift and allows you to discover distant relatives as well as to know what are the ancient origins of their ancestors (with truly unexpected results!)
VERSUS: it takes some time to receive the results.
Glasses holder in wood
A sculpture in hand-made wood on which to place your reading glasses when not in use. A perfect object to help grandparents not to lose their glasses and to find them immediately when needed. In addition to being a useful object, it is also an original and quality furnishing accessory for the home.

Cookbook to write
If the grandmother or grandfather are true masters in the kitchen, the greatest gift they can give to us is to leave a written record of their recipes and the tricks and secrets of their cooking. A book of this type, therefore, is a perfect gift: on the recipe book they can write ingredients, procedures and suggestions.
Touch bedside lamp
Very useful for grandparents – who often get out of bed at night and groped for the light switch in the dark – this LED lamp turns on just a simple touch thanks to the sensor on the top. It also allows you to choose different shades of color according to mood and atmosphere. It has a handle and can also be carried as a lantern.
PRO: recharges with a USB port and the battery lasts a long time. It gives off a soft light but perfect for moving around the house at night. Excellent handle to carry it around.
VERSUS: the lamp is small in size.
