Grandparents provide a loving and safe home, wisdom beyond our years, and endless warm memories of chats over hot tea and home-made snacks. They deserve to be shown just how much they’re appreciated and loved!
National Grandparent’s Day is Sunday, September 13th, and we’re starting the celebrating early with our Top Ten Grand Gestures for Grandparents! Ever wondered, “What should I get grandma to show her how much she means to me? What do I get grandpa? What kind of message do I want to send?” We cover it ALL in our guide!
1. Family Tree Frames
Nothing makes grandparents prouder than boasting about their family tree! Now you can let this beautiful Family Tree with Hanging Frames do the bragging for them. Not only is it a great addition to any shelf decor, but it’ll also become a cherished keepsake when you add family photos to the six hanging frames.
2. Story Time with Grandma & Grandpa
Sit down with your grandparents and have them tell you about their favorite memories! If you’re about to start high school or college ask what it was like for them or ask them about their first job! Chances are these won’t be just entertaining stories, but also great life lessons that will inspire you.
3. Grandparents Photo Album
Another excellent gift that will do all the bragging! Grandparents and their guests alike will be sure to admire this Personalized Photo Album Book, beautifully made of genuine maple wood. Fill it with thirty-six 4 x 6″ photographs of your fondest memories with grandma and grandpa, then smile over them together.
4. Plan a Beach Trip
Take Grandma and Grandpa out for a day of relaxation at the beach! Pack all the necessities – beach towels, umbrellas, chairs, a cooler with sandwiches and drinks – so they don’t have to worry about a thing! And don’t forget buckets and pails so you can have the ultimate sandcastle building contest

7. Bake A Family Recipe
Few things can be more delightful to a grandparent than passing down tradition to a younger generation! Ask your grandparents to teach you the family recipe for your favorite dessert or a start a new tradition by trying a new recipe. Either way the fun of baking together will create a treasured legacy for you and your grandparents
8. Personalized Tea Set
Tea with Grandma is such a sweet and cherished time that it should be commemorated with something unique. This Tea Set for Grandma is unlike any other dishware found in her kitchen! The teapot can be personalized by having a special message printed on the side and the teacup can hold both yours and grandma’s name.

10. Throw A Dinner Party
Sunday is Grandparents’ Day – so let them skip the cooking! Take them out to their favorite restaurant or really impress them by cooking the meal yourself. It’s a great way to show your appreciation for everything they do and also give back a little. Make sure to clear all the plates and wash the dishes so they don’t have to lift a finger!
