Gifts For Grandpa To Support His Wellness
Show him what he means to you with these thoughtful personal care gifts.
Gifts for Grandpa that will let him know how much he means to you
We don’t know about you, but when we think about our grandpa’s, we think about the people who taught us how to skip rocks at the lake, who let us sit on their lap and ‘pretend to drive’ when we were young kids, and the people who would throw a ball with us in the backyard for hours on end. What we don’t think about when we think of our grandpa’s are people who took time out of their day to celebrate themselves or to invest in self care.
In 2020, self care looks a lot different than it did many years ago. It’s no longer taboo or considered selfish to prioritize yourself, to create special moments for your wellness routine or to take time to invest in your health - even for our grandpa’s! We’ve curated a list of natural, plant-based wellness products you can give to grandpa this year to let him know you think he’s just the greatest.
Gifts for Grandpa: he loves new technology
Grandpa’s get a reputation for puttering and tinkering; putting their skills to use in the garage or the shed fixing everything from the toaster to the lawn mower is just part of the job description, it seems. If your grandpa is inclined towards gizmos and gadgets of all kinds, he might just love a new ultrasonic diffuser.
Diffusers are a simple way to refresh the air in your space, creating a welcoming environment while also helping to remove airborne irritants like dust or pet danders. Because you can personalize the way you want your home to smell and feel, there really is something for everyone.
Here are two of our favorite diffusers for the home:
Aroma Om white: this bottle-shaped diffuser is made of ceramic and has two easy settings: continuous or intermittent diffusing. Respective run times of three to six hours makes this the perfect companion for a home office or a study.
Aroma Om Deluxe stone: the larger version of our popular Aroma Om, this diffuser comes in a stylish grey cement, and is best suited to large, open concept spaces like living rooms and dining rooms. Complete with optional LED light feature, this diffuser can run between 11-22 hours, depending on its low or high setting.
Gifts for Grandpa: he like his home to smell a certain way
What diffuser would be complete without accompanying diffuser blends in scents that speak to the way you know your grandpa would want his home to smell. The beauty of 100% natural diffuser blends is that they are free of synthetic fragrances or any additives, so the aromas we welcome into our space are as good for us as they smell.
Here are some of our favorite diffuser blends to infuse the air in your space:
Deep Breath: this invigorating yet relaxing blend was inspired by the renewing experience of a steam room. Blended with peppermint, eucalyptus and marjoram, this diffuser blend helps to encourage taking a mindful breath every now and again.
Rainforest: this fresh and woodsy blend helps to conjure up a mental picture of a relaxing and grounding walk in the forest. For all of the times he may be unable to find himself on a nature walk, he can bring the best of the outdoors indoors with this earthy and refreshing blend of balsam fir, pine and cedarwood.
Elevate: if he loves the fresh and zesty scent of citrus in the morning, this might just be the perfect blend. Tart and zippy essential oils of lemongrass, mandarin and yuzu are formulated to support feeling enlivened and invigorated as he goes about his day.
Best of Saje diffuser blend collection: if you can’t decide which one you think he’d like most, you can’t go wrong with a curated set of six of our most popular blends. This kit contains everything he needs, from uplifting to relaxing scents, to support his home smelling and feeling good.
Gifts for Grandpa: he wants to feel his best
If your grandpa is a minimalist who leaves home with only his wallet and watch, it can be a tough sell to remind him to carry another item with him. Luckily, many of our products are so simple to take with you on the go that it won’t feel like he’s added anything to his leave-the-house-in-a-hurry-routine.
Here’s our most convenient product for on-the-go:
Pocket Farmacy: far and away the most popular gift set we sell at Saje, the Pocket Farmacy is an easy, all-in-one convenience kit of essential oil roll-ons. Formulated with simplicity and ease of use in mind, these roll-on’s were blended to relieve symptoms related to the head and neck, cough and cold, upset tummy, stress and pain relief. Roll-on’s can be applied to areas of the body like temples and wrists, depending on the blend, and each kit comes with a mini instruction manual for any questions he might have. Because these roll-on’s come in a handy zippered case, it will be a part of his daily routine in no time.
Gifts for Grandpa: he’s taking better care of his skin
At any age, taking care of our skin is an investment. Historically, your grandpa might not have been the first person who came to mind when thinking about cosmetic products for the skin, but we’re convinced that products that smell good, feel good and are good for you, can make a skin care champion out of anyone.
Here are some of the skin care products we love most:
Peaceful Warrior soap bar: gone are the days of drying and irritating drug store bar soap; say hello to skin softening, extra nourishing ingredients like coconut and olive oil, known for the ways in which they help to replenish moisture to the skin after a bath or shower. Blended with earthy essential oils like fennel and patchouli, this bar soap is a sure fire crowd pleaser.
Peaceful Warrior Aftershave Toner: a nurturing and balancing aftershave toner, this product has been formulated with ingredients that are known to help soothe freshly shaved skin, as well as help to calm minor skin irritations caused by shaving. Rejuvenating and herbaceous essential oils of sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver will help restore balance and hydration to the skin whenever it's needed.
Tingle Mint foaming hand soap: we know that everyone is taking seriously the directive to keep our hands fresh and clean, and this cooling, tingling blend of peppermint, tea tree and rosemary is the perfect way to do it. Grandpa will appreciate the cleansing foam because it also keeps hands soft, and prevents dry skin.
Tips on gifts for Grandpa that come from the heart
One of the ways that we can say ‘thank you’ and ‘I love you’ to our grandpa’s when it comes to gift giving is by gifting them what they truly want more than anything else, which is more time with you. We wanted to share with you some fun and thoughtful ideas for gifting grandpa this year that won’t cost you a thing:
- Take a walk together or visit a park or beach. For so many of us, our grandpa would be more than happy to spend time with us, doing something really simple. This precious gift of time is more valuable than any item you could give, and truly lets them know that you appreciate your time together.
- Create a photo album or collage. The experiences we have together are so special to each one of us, and we bet you could really make his day with a personalized gift that will let him take a walk with you down memory lane.
- Cook him a delicious meal. Let’s face it, the way to many people’s heart is through their stomach. Find out his very favorite meal, and cook it for him from scratch. This is the perfect opportunity to listen to his stories and ask questions about different experiences he’s had in his life, to help continue to shape yours.
The ways you can make gifts for Grandpa extra meaningful this year
No matter what gift you decide on, it’s important to remember that our grandpa’s are the people who’ve seen us through all the ages and stages of our lives, and who in many cases, know us better than anyone. Though they’d probably be the first people to tell you that having you as a grandchild is the best gift they’ve already received, you can rest assured knowing that the gift you’ve selected this year is thoughtful and specially chosen just for them.
