Whether they go by Grandma & Grandpa, Nana & Papa, Memom & Pa, or any other name for that matter, grandparents hold a special and sacred place in every family. Granddaughters and grandsons look to them for guidance, love, and wisdom (and for a bit of good, old-fashioned spoiling, too), and Grandparents Day is the perfect time to spoil Grandmother and Grandfather for a change!
Grandma’s cookie jar is always full, her candy drawer always stocked, her kitchen always bustling - and she loves to spoil her grandchildren! She’s also wise and always willing to listen to whatever is on her little ones’ minds. She’s a best friend, a mentor, a shoulder to cry on when things get tough, and a fun person to laugh with. She never judges, she always listens, and she’s always willing to share the wisdom that only she can offer. Grandma spoils her grandchildren with so much more than sweets and treats, and it’s important to spoil her every once in a while, even though she doesn’t expect it in return. Sentimental gifts go a long way towards letting Grandma know she’s appreciated, and figurines from Willow Tree are always a great choice for a gift that she can display proudly in her home. Sentimental expression signs from Primitives by Kathy also add to her home décor, while a picture frame holding a cherished photo adds a nice, personal touch - and it’s a great gift for Grandma and Grandpa! Finally, don’t forget jewelry for a gift that she can take with her wherever she goes.
And then there’s Grandpa...where to begin? He’s the one who sits his grandkids on his lap and reads them stories; the one who takes them on fun adventures every weekend, whether it’s to a local mini golf course or to a museum in the city; the one who takes them out for ice cream after supper; the one who showers them with gifts just because. He’s a man who’s calm, gentle, and loving, but also tough as nails. He’s so wise, and he never loses sight of the fun side of life. He’s a constant rock in his grandchildren’s lives, a pillar upon which his family rests. The best way to let Grandpa know how much he’s loved and appreciated is with words spoken from the heart. Hallmark cards let his grandchildren’s hearts be heard! Still, a fun gift to go along with the card never hurts! Maybe a tee from Old Guys Rule would make him happy, or a piece of fan gear featuring his favorite sports team to help him remember the time he took his grandkids to the big game. If he loves to read, a good book always hits the spot. Give it some thought, and he’ll appreciate whatever you get him!
Grandparents Day is an occasion to let grandmothers & grandfathers - not to mention great grandparents - everywhere know that they are so special, so unique, so loved & cherished. Whether they live far away, across town, or just down the road, the perfect gift can bring everyone closer together in an instant.
