With Grandparents Day coming up on Sunday, September 10, now is the time to lock down your gift for their special day! To take the guess work out of the planning – we’re complied this list of Great Gift Ideas for Grandparents to help you out and give you some ideas. After all, when was the last time you told your grandparents how much you care about them? Grandparents are special people and deserve to be celebrated now and again!
Do you have a great photograph of you with your grandparents? If so, this will make the perfect gift for their special day! As an added touch, you can even make the picture frame yourself or have one engraved with a special message. I know that my grandma had my school photo from each year rotated though a frame on the top of her piano! Even though we didn’t live close, it was like I was right there with her.
Another great way to show your grandparents how much they mean to you is to get them a special gift basket filled with all their favorite foods! We offer a premium selection of gourmet Gift Baskets For Grandparents, sure to please any grandmas and grandpas.
I know my grandpa loves his red wine! We also carry a selection of Wine Gift Baskets, filled with only the best quality vinos and gourmet snacks.
There are a lot of items out there to help when communicating with your grandparents and having your children connect with them as well! Technological gadgets from Amazon like the “Alexa” and the “Echo” are great to keep them engaged and assist them with daily tasks. They can turn on jazz music on demand, store grocery lists and even read audio books!
Do your grandparents love flowers? If so, sending them a thoughtful bouquet on Grandparents Day (or any day!) is a gift that will certainly make them smile. Instead of flower arrangements, you can always buy them potted indoor plants, such as orchids or even chrysanthemums, which are in season at this time of year.
Treat them to a night out! By gifting a gift certificate, they can use it at their leisure and enjoy a nice night out together, thinking of you as they enjoy a nice meal! Gift certificates are also great for the movies, the theater or for fun activities in their downtown area. Gift certificates and gift cards are thoughtful alternatives to money because they feel a little more personal.
Are your grandparents sentimental? If so, they’ll absolutely love a personalized gift! Whenever they use it, they’re sure to always think of you and how much you love them. Top personalized gift ideas include picture frames, mugs, plaques, and even clothes. You can also buy personalized gifts that are relevant to their interests. For example, if your grandparents love to read, you can give them personalized bookmarks. Whenever they read, they’ll see your message!
Reminder: Grandparents Day in 2017 is on September 10th, which means that it’s time to shop for a gift for them! No matter what you decide to give, make sure you don’t forget the card, which is another nice way to show how much you love them. Always remember that you can skip the store bought version and make a little note from the heart – that’s what really counts!
