Many grandmas don’t consider technology to be something they necessarily need in their lives. But think about all the ways a tablet can benefit your grandma- she can look up recipes while cooking, video chat with her grandchildren, and watch her favorite shows. If you consider buying your grandma a tablet, make sure you take some time to explain all the cool things she could do on it. Maybe add a little handwritten booklet where you thoroughly explain how she can access certain features. That way, your grandma will feel comfortable enough to use her new gift for things she actually loves!
