6. Chiroflow Premium Water Pillow
If you don’t think your grandma can get hot under the collar, you probably should speak to your mom or dad about it. But the truth is, many older women have internal heaters that don’t work as efficiently as they once did. That means lots of them get cold during the day, and often get hot at night. That nightly heat up can be a huge impediment to a good night’s sleep, keeping your grandma from feeling well rested in the short term, and impacting her overall health in the long term. This cold pillow is like a waterbed for grandma’s head, carefully cradling her cranium for a comfy night’s sleep. It can reduce neck and back pain, and with an internal bladder that she can fill to her own custom comfort level, and it stays cool. In the realm of awesome grandma gifts, wouldn’t you want her to sleep like a baby? We bet you would.

7. La Chatelaine 20 Percent Shea Butter Hand Cream Tin Gift Box
It takes more than winter weather to make hands cracked and dry. That dry skin issue is an even bigger problem for your grandma, because as skin ages, it’s less likely to have all the natural oils needed to keep it smooth and supple. Since you love to hold your grandma’s hand, why not make sure that hand is as soft and sweet as your memories of her? This lovely Valentine’s Day gift for grandma features three luxurious French hand creams that are all natural, with no nasty chemicals or additives. They come in three sumptuous scents, rose blossom, wild fig and winter flower. Plus they come in a beautiful, reusable tin, that we know your granny will put to good use. They also have a second set in a gift tin that features coconut milk, shea and cranberry lychee scents. Sounds like desert. These grandma gifts are ultra-moisturizing, in addition to smelling heavenly, and their smaller size tubes are purse and pocket friendly, which makes them easy to keep close at hand.
