5. A lightweight sweater will make a big difference when you're 86 and freezing all the time. Or when you're 26 and your boyfriend's AC is set to “arctic.”

6. A strategically placed putting pad because Grandpa thinks golfing is the literal sh*t! And sometimes you just need a way to pass the time while taking a long... well, what Grandpa said.

Promising review: "This was a present for my husband who does NOT play golf... but he still LOVED it!! like many guys and gals, my husband spends SO long in the bathroom that I thought it would be funny to get him a toilet toy as a gag gift. Boy oh boy, it was the highlight of the day. He loved it and laughed so hard. Then he tried it out and thought it was a cute, fun game. Totally funny and actually usable." —Igotzapeanut

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.


8. A genius three-in-one nose hair trimmer because tbh your Grandpa isn't the only one who could be shaving that stuff.

This kit includes shaving heads for nose, eyebrows, and detailer with a USB charging cable and lifetime guarantee.

Promising Review: "I LOVE this! It was charged and ready to go when I opened the box, and, almost immediately, that irritating and unbecoming nose hair disappeared! If you have this problem, you know what a bummer it is. I feel great having a little magic trimmer that takes care of it. I couldn't be happier about a product." —Kathy Stevenson

Get it from Amazon for $21.99

9. An elongated shoe horn that'll let you put on your shoes while standing. Saves Grandpa's back and saves the back of your shoe!

11. A no-nonsense dandruff shampoo Grandpa'd approve of so you’re only flaky when it comes to making plans with friends.

Promising Review: "This is my favorite natural shampoo that I've tried so far. It really helped me with my dry, itchy scalp. I love the scent. It has helped a lot with my oily scalp, too. It has allowed me to skip a day in between washings which hasn't been possible before." —Serenity17

Get it from Amazon for $16.95.


13. A surprisingly useful set of walking sticks, which apparently make a huge difference because we keep getting lapped by 70-year-old speed walkers.

Includes five heads made for altering terrain, shock-absorbing adjustable poles, and EVA foam hand grips.

Promising Review: "These were perfect for my girlfriend and I to use hiking, walking, etc. We initially bought one set (one stick for each of us) but liked them so much, we both bought an additional set. I've seen far more inferior products costing twice as much in retail stores. This was worth the money for us. Highly recommended!" —SomeGuyInTX

Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

14. A bear-y cute backscratcher that'll definitely hit that itchy spot, or liver spot, you can't reach.

15. A Nifty Nabber made specifically for those over a certain age, and under a certain height.

Promising Review: "Very happy I got this. It's handy for reaching things up high (we got it to reach apples and pears from the tops of our trees) as well as things that fall behind heavy furniture. The device is sturdy and easy to use. A must-have in my opinion." —Bostonmama

Get it from Amazon for $19.71.


18. A magic Wi-Fi robot vacuum might be too high-tech for Grandpa, but it'll keep your floors clean and your feet up. He'd like that.

Includes a remote control, sponge filter and high efficiency filter, side brushes, charging dock, and power adapter.

Promising Review: "I am so pleased with it. It does a great job picking up pet hair and other dirt that has gotten down in your carpet. The app is easy. It shows how much battery life is left, it also shows when you need to replace the filters. I love everything about it and would be hard pressed to pick a favorite aspect it's everything you could want in a vacuum quiet and efficient." —Sandra Alawine

Get it from Amazon for $199.96.

19. A bossy clock that tells you to take your meds at exactly the same time every day, which keeps your Grandpa from getting heartburn and keeps you from getting pregnant.

Promising Review: "It's been great: You can set up to four alarms each day, and the alarm is easily audible (two settings: 'loud' and 'extra loud') and clear. It can beep or it can offer specific instructions: 'Take your evening pills for Tuesday, October 23.'" —Tim Dierks

Get it from Amazon for $30.70.


20. A set of silicone oven rack guards made to protect your skin from touching the satan-hot oven. That way the only thing you risk burning is your dinner.

Promising Review: "These are wonderful. I had a set from another seller —

but they were not nearly as thick as these. So between the two sets, both racks in my oven are protected. Recommend product and seller to all!" —cpmo

Get them from Amazon for $7.13.

23. A crazy comfy robe Grandpa wears while getting the paper, reading the paper, throwing away the paper... you'll wear yours so that you never have to wear real clothes again.
