    18 Products Your Grandpa Probably Uses (And So Should You)

    He may hate your green hair and nose ring, but he’ll think this stuff is “just spiffy!”

    1. An inconspicuous jar opener because we're not going to let arthritis, or poor upper body strength, get in the way of our pasta sauce and pickles.

    Get It from Amazon for $15.95.

    2. A pair of chic reading glasses so you can be as sexy as your Grandpa is far-sighted.

    Warby Parker

    3. A gorgeous TV tray for when you're binge-watching Broad City (or The Andy Griffith Show) while you eat.

    Get it from West Elm for $44.

    4. A seriously strong antiperspirant deodorant because your Grandpa isn't messing with some flowery powder-fresh scent to cure B.O. and neither should you.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.67.

    5. 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 $9.98.

    6. A geometric whisky stone set to keep drinks from watering down. Because a real man deserves a stiff drink and a real woman deserves two.

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. 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 $14.99

    8. 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!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    9. An electric callous remover because Grandpa doesn’t get pedicures and you can’t afford to.

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97.

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

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    11. 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 $20.57.

    12. A pair of flannel slippers is a Grandpa staple. But these unicorn light up slippers should be instead.

    Get them from ModCloth for $45.

    13. 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.

    14. 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 $38.25.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.64.

    17. A seriously practical grocery cart, because we judge the people who use them but we secretly want to be them.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.97.

    18. And a rather rustic-looking jar of beard balm that keeps Grandpa's face fresh and will make your Tom Selleck-stache the manliest at Beardfest.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.23.
