This Grandparent’s Day, send your love by getting these gratifying gifts for your grandma and grandpa.

Since the start of the pandemic, you probably haven't seen more than a few people IRL — if any at all. And there’s a couple of people you’re possibly missing the most: your grandparents.

If you’re lucky enough to still have them around, you’ll know that the older population is especially vulnerable to COVID-19, and that’s why this year’s Grandparent’s Day is especially important.

Tomorrow, Sept. 12, marks this very special occasion, and is the perfect opportunity to give your grandmothers and grandfathers some much-needed love — from a safe distance, of course.

To celebrate, we’ve come up with a list of gifts to send your beloved lola and lolo. And no, these aren’t just any small gifts to make them go, “Aww” — they’re intended to make up for the fact that we haven’t been able to see them in a long while.

So pool up some money with your siblings and cousins — “co-grandkids” if you like — and get your grandparents a gift they’ll never forget.

For the grandparent who keeps a clean house

Visit the Mi Store at Ayala Malls Circuit, Ayala Malls Cloverleaf, Ayala Malls Marikina, Market! Market, TriNoma, U.P. Town Center, Ayala Malls Central Bloc, and MarQuee Mall.

As much as some people love the chore of vacuuming, you can’t deny that it can be tiring. Save your grandparents the energy and get them the Mi Robot Vacuum (P15,490, Mi Store). It finds itself back to its charger after it’s done cleaning, so you really just have to set it and forget it!

For the grandparent that loves to bake

Visit Gourdo’s at Glorietta, TriNoma, and U.P. Town Center.

If your grandparent is the type that loves to bake cakes or cookies, this is something they’ll definitely appreciate. The KitchenAid Artisan series (P32,675, Gourdo’s) makes any kind of mixing a breeze. Plus, KitchenAid also makes a variety of attachments like an ice cream maker (P7650, Gourdo’s) that you can gift later on.

For the grandparent that’s building a garden

Visit Qach Lifestyle & Garden at Alabang Town Center, Ayala Malls Manila Bay, Ayala Malls The 30th, and U.P. Town Center.

All this time in our homes is the perfect opportunity to start a garden. If your grandparent is one of those that successfully did this during the pandemic, definitely get them something nice for their gardening routine.

A cute, chic, and sturdy watering can like these from Qach (Brussels Watering Can 1.8L, P850; Lungo Watering Can 12L, P2,050; both from Qach) should do the trick.

For the grandparent who likes to lounge

Visit La-Z-Boy at Ayala Malls Feliz and Ayala Malls Manila Bay.

You gotta admit, one of the perks of being a grandparent is lounging around whenever you please. Gift them with the grandest of lounge seats: a La-Z-Boy. The Rialto iClean Rocker Recliner (P40,950, La-Z-Boy) features stain-resistant and easy-to-clean fabric for effortless maintenance.

For the grandparent who wants more quality (digital) time

Visit UrbanGiz at Ayala Malls Manila Bay, U.P. Town Center, and Harbor Point.

What’s better than giving your grandparent a digital photo frame? Well, a digital photo frame that also doubles as a tablet, that’s what. The Google Nest Hub Max (P23,500, UrbanGiz) not only lets you hop on a video call with your grandparents from time to time, but its speaker stand makes it useful as a recipe guide in the kitchen.

Looking for more gifts? Check out ZingShops on the Ayala Malls Zing app — it's available through the App Store and Google Play.
