Gifts for Grandma / Gifts for Grandpa
The Skylight Photoframe is an easy answer to what to get grandparents for Christmas. This frame is so simple to set up and use and anyone can email pictures directly to it! You just plug Skylight in, tap the screen to log into your wi-fi network, and go! You do not need to be tech-savvy at all to set up this digital photo frame. My favorite thing though is that everyone in the family can send to pictures to the Skylight’s unique email from phone or computer, and photos arrive in seconds. We tested one out and my teenager loved sending pictures to the frame. So much so that I might need to keep this one and buy another for grandma and grandpa.
Bonus — If you click through this link and use the code SAVVY you can save $10 on the frame!
You can give the email to the whole family and they can easily send photos to the frame all year long.
