Love, kindness, smiles and hugs. These are the words that come to mind every time I hear the word grandparents. They were a big part of my life growing up and I could not imagine my life without them. Now, that I am a mother, I am happy to see that my children love their grandparents as much as I loved mine. They go on small day trips with them, they play with them, they listen to their stories, in a few words, their grandparents are their heroes.
Did you know that on October 2nd we celebrate Grandparents Day? I recently found out and I have to admit that I was kind of surprised that this day is not so well knows as Mothers or Fathers day. So, in case you knew about this day or in case you just found out, I thought I should share with you a small list of presents that will show grandparents our love and appreciation.
1. Personalised calendar or a family photo album
There's nothing more important to them than family. That is why a personalised gift like this will always be a success.
2. Comfy and cosy gifts
Websites like Chums offer a great variety of products to choose from, so you don't have to worry that you won't find something to suit them.
3. A day at a spa
Yes, you read correctly. Grandparents are also people and they need to relax and what better way to relax than a day at a spa? In our family grandma is the happiest when she receives this type of present.
4. A nice dinner
I know grandparents are well known for their awesome family dinners, but sometimes is nice to host a special dinner for them to show your appreciation.
5. Be creative
In the end, it's all about family and grandparents will appreciate everything that comes from their grandchildren. So get creative with your little ones and create cards or small gifts that will show grandma and grandpa your love.
