Love is the greatest gift that one generation can leave to another – Richard Garnett
National Grandparents Day is coming up and If there is one thing that grandparents are full of, its love. Always there to congratulate and celebrate your big moments in life as well as being there to pick you up and dust you off when you fall. They enjoy spoiling their grandchildren either with the newest and latest toy or with their special homemade cookies and never ever ask for anything in return besides love. This year, it’s time for us to show how much we love and appreciate them. Check out our top ideas to spoil your grandparents!
Family Brunch/Dinner – Families come together over meals and what better way to create a lasting memory than over some of your favorite dishes. Make a reservation at their favorite restaurant or get the family together to cook for surprise picnic!
Interview them – Grandparents always have wisdom and knowledge not because they’re always right but because they have experience being wrong. They are full of stories and memories from the good old days that you might have never heard before. You might have a lot more in common than you thought!
Gifts – It is always nice to receive a gift, especially something that was specially made for you. Surprise them with a personalized keepsake box where they can keep special trinkets heirlooms to pass down or an engraved family name photo frame to put their favorite photos on display.
Special Surprise – Has your grandmother been begging for a trip to a spa or your grandfather eyeing that new model car? Show them that you really do pay attention and care by surprising them with that special trip they’ve been talking about.
Plan an Activity – The best time is always time spent together, surprise them with a specially planned activity just for you to do together. Maybe there is a local Grandparents Day celebration in your town or city or stay at home and make a fun craft like one of these sweet ideas.
