Part of our jobs as mothers is remembering holidays, family and friends birthdays, picking out the gifts and cards. Well another day that now needs to be considered is Grandparents Day. My children’s Grandparents live for Grandparents Day. Each year I plan, and rack my brain trying to think of what craft my children can make this year, but this year I decided I don’t have time for crafting, I’m just going to purchase something. Lighten my personal load a bit. Well seeing as Grandparent’s day is lurking just around the corner, I have started my shopping early. I have until September 13, to make my last and final purchases, but I decided to start early this year.
Let’s start by discussing the different options for Grandparents Day gift ideas. Crafting is always an excellent idea. Hand crafted mugs, stepping stones, hand painted photos from the grandchildren are always an excellent gift idea. Pinterest is full of all sorts of crafting ideas for you and the kids to do together. https://www.pinterest.com/
Grandmas love personalized necklaces, or bracelets. Online retailers such as www.amazon.com or www.thingsremembered.com are full of all sorts of unique gift ideas for Grandma.
Grandpas adore personalized key chains, picture frames, and mugs. Great shops to find these personalized items for Papa can be found on www.etsy.com or can easily be created using www.shutterfly.com
Planning a special picnic to the park, or zoo with Grandma and Grandpa, all expenses paid, is a fun family outing to celebrate your children’s Grandparents as well.
I always feel that my children are truly blessed to have such amazing, loving Grandparents. I used to think of Grandparents Day with dread, just another day to purchase a gift for, or plan for someone else. Then I realized how important my children’s relationship with their Grandparents is. So instead I now start my shopping early, use summer deals to my advantage and make purchases before September arrives.
