On this list, you will find a selection of gifts that perfectly balance usefulness with a heart and is sure to be hole-in-one for your one-of-a-kind grandfather.
Best Gifts for Grandpa
PediPocket Foot Pocket Blanket
Poor circulation as your grandpa gets older can mean only one thing: icy cold toes that refuse to be comfortable.

With a cone-shaped pocket designed specifically to accommodate feet, the PediPocket keeps grandpa feeling cozy and snug all day and night. Plush fleece is the ideal solution to chilled toes, it seems, and the PediPocket ensures that no little piggy gets overlooked by this soft blanket from here on out.
