Choosing the best tech gifts for grandparents

Coming up with techy gifts ideas for tech-savvy grandparents sounds simple enough. But before grabbing just any wireless device, think closely about their interests and how they use the tech they already have.

For grandparents who love spending time on Facetime and Facebook, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max is perfect. Fingerprint and oil-resistant coating on the 6.7” Super Retina XDR display allow for smudge-free scrolling, posting, zooming, and commenting on social media. They can even make video calls hands-free with a simple request to Siri, the built-in virtual assistant.

Smartphones with stylus compatibility, like the Samsung S21 Ultra 5G, also make excellent gifts for tech-savvy grandparents. It adds an extra layer of usability and engagement for people who may be more comfortable hand-writing notes. The S-Pen stylus gives users access to both Samsung Notes and Live Messages, so the family chat stays jumping with updates from your favorite seniors.

If grandma or grandpa is a major bookworm, consider a tablet. The TCL Tab 8” is portable, comfortable to hold, and convenient for reading at home or while traveling. It fits easily into a bag or briefcase and provides up to 17 hours of use with a 5,000 mAh battery. The 8” FHD display offers Eye Comfort, Dark, and Reading modes for times when they simply can’t put a story down.

For the family that wants to get fit together, Apple Watch Series 6, helps grandparents monitor their health stats, oxygen levels, sleep patterns, and heart rate. It’s a powerful fitness aid in addition to an innovative and stylish wireless accessory that becomes even more enjoyable as they listen to their favorite music, audiobooks, and podcast.

Before buying gifts for grandma and grandpa

With a little help from your local wireless consultants, you can find the right present for the one you love. Instead of ordering online, visit your neighborhood Cellular Sales, where you can try out the most popular smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and accessories on the market. Besides helping you with gift ideas for grandparents, our consultants can also help you find a data plan that suits their needs. 

Generous plans like Verizon’s Start Unlimited complement the wireless devices grandparents love with:

  • Unlimited talk, text, and data
  • 5G Nationwide coverage
  • 4G LTE data
  • Free streaming services like Disney+, discovery+, and Apple Music for six months

A prepaid plan offers many of the same benefits as an Unlimited plan, minus the commitment. Pay month-to-month or in advance. Don’t worry about long-term contracts, deposits, or credit checks; they aren’t required. Pair this plan with the Motorola moto g power, a sturdy and practical smartphone that offers up to 22 days of standby time and 50 hours of use. Grandparents get days of enjoyment without being tethered to a charger.
