Gift Idea for Grandparents

Does your holiday shopping list include a grandparent or older loved one? Are you struggling to come up with a unique and meaningful present for a family member on your list? A Digital Picture Frame may be the gift you are looking for!

Perfect gift idea for grandparents

I don’t know about you, but grandparents are some of the hardest people to buy Christmas presents. They don’t need (or want) a lot of stuff. Yet,  you want to get them something really special because they deserve it!

After getting a chance to try out the Skylight Picture Frame, I think it would be  perfect for grandparents.

I’ll be honest, I have never owned a digital frame. These fun photo frames have been around for several years and I have always been intrigued by them. However, recently I spotted Skylight Frames and I knew this would the perfect gift for my in-laws  My husband’s parents do not live near us and they love to get pictures sent to them.

Perfect Gift Idea for Grandparents

What makes this digital frame so special is that you can easily update pictures by sending a photo to a specially created e-mail address. The digital frame connects to wi-fi so that pictures are instantly downloaded.  The recipient has no work to do on their end!! The frame rotates through all of the pictures that are in the collection. You have the ability to delete or shuffle the pictures.

To save your recipient time and energy,  can easily set up this digital frame for them so that all they have to do is decide on where to put it!

How Skylight Picture Frame Works

The Skylight Frame is so easy to set up. I recruited my ten year old to help me set it up and I was so pleasantly surprised that we had the frame working in less than FIVE MINUTES!

Skylight includes a very easy to follow instruction guide that even the non-technical people in your family can do it! 

  1. Plug in the device to the adapter and an outlet.
  2. Connect to Wi-Fi (You only need wi-fi to receive new pictures).
  3. Set up a Skylight e-mail address.
  4. Let everyone in the family know about the new e-mail address.
  5. Start sending pictures!

The pictures show up on the device within 30 seconds after you send the e-mail. How cool to allow all of your family the ability to send pictures to the frame. The pictures are all stored on the device.
