Holiday Gift Guide...For the Grandparents

mStarr design / A Holiday Dinner Tablescape with Floral Canopy…and Tips for Creating Your Own Festive Table!

Presenting our 3rd gift guide, and tackling one of the trickiest categories: grandparents. Long gone are the days when grandparents were elderly, anti-tech and only wanting (or pretending to like?) mugs & calendars with their grandkids' pictures on them (not that there's anything wrong with those!). I've rounded up some items they can indulge in, stay active with, feel a sense of nostalgia, and yes, keep up with the grandkids pictures.

A note about gift guides...I tend to curate them based on products we may already own, products I have my eye on, products that others who I trust share, and products from brands I'm a fan of! There will be some inevitable cross-over along the way so be sure to check out all the guides as I continue to share them (and sign up for our newsletter where I'll send them out).

Some items may sell out quickly (but could restock) so you’re best ordering as early as possible this year especially because of inconsistent shipping times and signing up for in-stock notifications where available. Another tip is if you use the LTK app (follow @mstarrevdesign here!), you can simply save items if you're not ready to purchase or need to go back to something. All of these gift guide items will be posted there as well!


As a parent of a 6 year old, I know how much art comes home every day from school. Save the good pieces and gift them to the grandparents with this picture frame which allows them to store & swap out art. Available in multiple colors.

Give them the gift of relaxation with a foot massager that has a variety of heat, kneading, rolling & pressure settings. This may or may not be on my wishlist as well...Currently on sale


Simplify their cooking routine and gift the pot & pan that can replace pretty much all others. Currently on sale

Of course there needs to be a Sweetgreen nearby but if there is, they'll be thrilled to pick up (or have delivered) yummy salads whenever they want.

They won't lose anything important anymore. Currently on sale.

These really are the only sheets we sleep on these days. Temperature-regulating, moisture-wicking viscose from bamboo fabric and SO SOFT. Use code EMILYSTARR40 for 40% off your entire purchase.

A neutral frame with a super clear picture to rotate all their favorite photos. Unlimited photo storage with instant sharing. Currently on sale.

Whether entertaining or having a night in, this mouth-blown glass cloche and wood base serving piece is equally beautiful filled with pastries and displayed on the counter or used as a serving piece with cheese.

Sleek, simple and sure to evoke a feeling of nostalgia, this all-in-one record player also features Bluetooth connectivity.

We've used these in both of our houses and love how easy they are to set up and monitor activity around the house. Deliveries in particular are easy to track but the added sense of security will be appreciated.

Who wouldn't want a delicious food crate filled with artisanal goodies delivered right to your door?! This subscription includes a Utah family-owned cheese crate, a Tour of France crate, and an Italian themed one. Other options & lengths of time available.

Supposedly these are lights (or sound) out good with superior noise cancellation. They're just what the grandparents need for long walks or working out at home. Currently on sale.

They'll be the coolest grandparents on the block when making mini waffles for the kids.
