Some people claim that becoming a grandparent is often just as exciting as becoming a parent for the first time. Many grandparents have the advantage of being able to take their grandkids out for a good time, lots of sweets, and return them to their parents before bedtime. There is a special bond between grandparents and grandchildren, so be sure to express your love and appreciation for the grandparents in your and your children’s lives with these four unique Grandparents’ Day gifts.
You can personalize a photo mug on Shutterfly with a picture of your grandparents, but why not take it one step further? Using some paint, have the grandkids make handprints on a piece of paper. After it dries, scan the picture into your computer. You can then upload it as the picture for the photo mug for a truly unique gift the grandparents will love to display or use on a daily basis.
To create an heirloom to be treasured, use the handprint photo idea along with plenty of fun pictures of the grandkids. Try to gather pictures of the grandkids with the grandparents, if possible. Then use those to create a photo quilt. Don’t worry about your sewing skills because you can have the photo quilt made for you.
Gather together all of the pictures you can to create a photo book the grandparents can look through every time they want to see their grandkids. Or have some photo prints made and put them in an album that the grandparents can carry in a bag or purse to show to people they meet. They’ll love being able to show off their beautiful grandbabies.
If the grandparents already have plenty of pictures in their iPhones, customize a phone case with a picture of the grandkids. They don’t even have to open their photo gallery to show them off.
Whatever you do, make sure your Grandparents’ Day gifts center on the grandkids and express your appreciation for the grandparents. They’re bound to love the personal touch.
