He’s the best babysitter in the world, the one with all the jokes and the best advice: Yes, we're talking about grandpa (or gramps, granddad, poppy, etc.). So we were thinking, why not show your appreciation for him by choosing a gift he's really going to love, whether it's for the holidays, his birthday or just because? Is he a cook? Buy him the appliance all the food blogs are talking about. Is he into exercising? This lotion will soothe his aching muscles. Or maybe he likes the History channel, in which case this little sampling of world history will blow his mind.

We could go on and on, but we won't hold you up. Here are the 50 best gifts for grandpa.

The Top 5 Gifts for Grandpa at a Glance

Where to Buy the Best Gifts for Grandpa

While you can never go wrong with Amazon for a massive selection, Uncommon Goods is a great place for unique gifts with a personalized touch. When it comes to tech, you can’t beat Best Buy, and in terms of home renovations, we often turn to Home Depot. (But our list spans more than just these go-to stores.)

How We Chose the Best Gifts for Grandpa

We started with a deep dive into popular hobbies (from reading to cooking), as well as gifts that appeal to different personality types. We also thought of ways you could help Grandpa connect with his loved ones, and chose thoughtful products that would enhance these experiences. We also researched some useful devices that might make his home life a little easier, and some that could even help with his safety. And as always, we kept in mind the number and quality of reviews while making our choices.
