10 Cool Holiday Tech Gifts And Gadgets For Grandparents


Grandparents are breaking the stereotypical images of the rocking-chair-bound, knitting and fishing enthusiasts of days gone by. As the digital age has transformed our world, our parents and grandparents are getting more tech-savvy.

So, it’s wise to think outside the box when it comes to gifting for the greater generations.

According to a survey by Pew Research Center, adoption of key technologies by those in the 50 to 64 age group and the above 65 age group has grown considerably since a decade ago. And the gap between the oldest and youngest adults has narrowed when it comes to technology usage. The survey found 83 percent of those aged 50 to 64 years old owned a smartphone, while 45 percent of those 65 and older used social media sites.

So don’t leave out the grandparents in when pursuing gift ideas in the tech department. CRN rounds up 10 great grandparent tech gifts that will keep families connected and entertained.
