These Vivaia sneakers just may be the cutest and most comfortable footwear out there. The timeless silhouette, which Grandma has probably been wearing forever, has been given a modern update, but they’ll still feel like her old favorite pair. Sustainably made from plastic bottles, they’re lightweight, breathable, and even machine washable. We love the simplicity of Whisper White and the fact that this style shares a name with Taylor Swift’s equally classic album.

Bonus: You’ll be invited for dinner way more often.
Best for the sophisticated sipper
2019 Beringer Private Reserve Chardonnay
If this award-winning wine is any indication, 2019 was, indeed, a very good year—at least for this chardonnay. The description alone, which mentions “aromas of citrus blossom, lemon curd, honeysuckle, and crème brûlée,” will entice Grandma, but once she actually tastes it, she’ll be singing your praises and drinking to your good taste. For the ultimate package, pair it with a few of these other gifts for wine lovers.

She’ll also appreciate the fact that it’s machine washable and the zippers and lining are made from recycled materials.
Best for the indecisive

Best for the feminist
eeBoo Piece & Love Votes for Women Puzzle
If Grandma is a puzzler, she’s probably already a fan of eeBoo Piece & Love. This empowering jigsaw puzzle is a shout-out to the suffragettes who fought so hard to get women the right to vote, honoring them by name and providing more information about each one.

Best for the iPhone user

You taught her how to text, and now she’s checking her phone every five minutes. Protect her new favorite toy with this pretty floral case that she’ll be able to find easily when it’s sitting at the bottom of her bag. It’s available in seven cheery colors, and it’s also made from a plant-based material that’s 100 percent compostable.

Best for the candle collector
L’or de Seraphine La Roseraie Candle
A scented candle can completely change the atmosphere of a space, and Grandma will absolutely love this one.

You can choose from five colors, but we’re partial to this perfect-with-jeans dark blue.
Best for the hiker
Scarpa Mojito Casual Shoe
This attractive shoe is a cult favorite and the Italian brand’s top seller worldwide.

These Mojito shoes are as at home on city streets as they are on the trail. Made of suede, they come in a variety of stunning colors, but it’s the cushy and supportive comfort that will really count for Grandma. Even if she’s not climbing mountains, she just may move them.

Glerups Wool Slip-Ons
You’ve got to love a company started in Denmark when a woman named Nanny felted her first pair of boots using wool from her own Gotland sheep. We know Grandma will adore Nanny’s results. These rubber-soled shoes are so comfortable because their shape follows the contours of the foot, ensuring they will stay on. The 100 percent pure natural wool is soft and itch-free, protecting against odor and absorbing moisture to keep feet dry. They’re also, surprisingly, meant to be worn year-round, keeping Grandma warm in the cold, cool in the heat, and always happy.

If Grandma turned you into a reader with your own copy of Anne of Green Gables when you were little, you can return the favor with this unique paper rose handmade from the pages of the classic book—or another title that means something special to her. Literary Blooms was created by a mother and daughter who upcycle damaged books that can no longer be donated or sold. They hand-cut and shape each flower and attach a green leafy stem.

This yummy spread from Russ & Daughters features a pound of sliced Gaspe Nova smoked salmon, six assorted bagels, plain cream cheese, a chocolate babka, coffee, and a Russ & Daughters insulated tote bag and ceramic mug. There’s plenty to share…but no guarantees she will. “Babka?” she may say. “What babka?”

Dearfoams Sydney Shearling Scuff Slippers
Grandma may have had slippers from Dearfoams before—after all, they make some of the best slippers for women—but these are so modern and comfy, she’ll never want to take them off. And, thanks to their rubber sole, she won’t have to. Made of water- and stain-resistant suede, they feature the cushiest Australian sheepskin lining, which adjusts naturally to her body temperature so she stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They come in five colors and may inspire her to replace her shoe wardrobe with a slipper collection.

Costa Farms Ficus Lyrata
Costa Farms is one of the largest horticultural growers in the world, and their bold and dramatic houseplants are a lovely way to bring the outdoors in all year round. With its large, fiddle-shaped leaves, this ficus plant doesn’t need much space to make a big design impact. It comes in a white ceramic planter that will fit in with any decor, and it looks great on a shelf or table. Grandma will love its easy maintenance.
Best for the chocoholic
Neuhaus Carre Pencil Box
You can never go wrong with chocolate, but this elegant gift box is especially thoughtful because it contains individually wrapped little gems so Grandma can savor one perfect square at a time, practically guilt-free. There are eight pieces each of five classic Neuhaus Belgian milk chocolate varieties: Caramel, Feuilletine, Bresilienne, Almond & Honey, and Milk. Each one is rich, flavorful, and a perfect treat at the end of the day.
Best for the delicate flower
Catherine Weitzman Rose Petal Heart Necklace
Who says flowers don’t last? To make each of these one-of-a-kind necklaces, jeweler Catherine Weitzman takes a real rose petal, shapes it into a heart, then hand-presses it between the glass of a branch-adorned pendant. Handmade in Hawaii, this is a very special gift for a very special Grandma. While you’ll find this pretty little bauble on Uncommon Goods, Etsy gifts have an equally unique flair.
Best for the stain-prone fashionista
Ably Aloe Long Sleeve Linen Shirt
A crisp, white linen shirt is a wardrobe staple, but it’s so easy to ruin with an accidental splash of red wine or tomato sauce. Until now, that is. Ably has transformed the high-maintenance classic into a wearable new favorite, using 100 percent premium Filium-activated linen to repel stains, odors, and liquids. It’s machine-washable and quick-drying, and it runs a little large for a relaxed, flowing fit. Luckily, it comes in four additional colors so Grandma can wear one nearly every day of the workweek.

Best for the one with aches and pains
So much cozier and on-point than a heating pad and less messy than a hot-water bottle, the Heatbag from self-care brand Ostrichpillow is as soothing and comforting as a stuffie. Grandma can place the clay bag in the microwave or freezer, depending on whether she needs to heat or ice an achy spot, then slip it into its washable, recycled foam cover. When heated, it will warm cold feet in bed and hearts anywhere.
Best for the jeans-and-tees grandma
Prana Cozy Up T-Shirt
We’ve all been living in T-shirts for the past few years, but this one is actually nice enough for Grandma to wear outside without feeling like she has to make excuses. Prana is all about sustainability and style, and this practically perfect tee is made from a blend of hemp, recycled polyester, and Tencel Lyocell. It even has natural odor-reducing properties and UPF 30+. She may want this T-shirt in all nine colors.
Best for the wine taster
In Good Taste Wild Child Flight
These beautiful little bottles of wine just may be Grandma’s alter ego in liquid form. In Good Taste’s eclectic tasting kits are a fun way to try new, less traditional wines, and this one comes with eight free-spirited, by-the-glass bottles featuring tasting notes of everything from black cherry and vanilla to honeysuckle, apricot, and baked apple. Once she’s found her new favorite, she can order a bottle. She can even join a complimentary virtual tasting, where she’s likely to raise a glass to you. This also makes a terrific hostess gift, so you may want to pick up an extra to have on hand when you need it.
Best for the eagle-eyed
Look Optic Sullivan Readers
There’s a good chance Grandma has reading glasses all over her house, but it’s unlikely that any of them are as fashion-forward as these. The flattering Sullivan comes in a variety of rich colors, so she can wear them as accessories to coordinate with her clothes and her mood. She can try out different styles with Look’s virtual mirror, as well as choose the magnification that works best for her. These readers are easy on the eyes, and a percentage of each sale is donated to charity, making it an excellent gift that gives back.
