Gifts for Grandparents and In Home Senior Care
Grandparents Day is celebrated on the first Sunday after Labor Day. This is an annual day set aside to thank the special people in our lives who have been there for us from the very start. Our grandparents have learned so much in their time on earth and their wisdom is invaluable. Let’s make Grandparents Day a special time to show how much we appreciate those who helped to shape us.
A wonderful way to show a grandparent how much you care is to create a photo book for them filled with current and past memories. This book can be a scrapbook filled with printed photos and memorabilia. There are also great websites that help to make digital books for print. Old photographs can be scanned or photographed to be included in the book!
Another way to commemorate this special day for grandparents is to present them with a new item for the garden. Since fall is around the corner, a beautiful mum plant will look so lovely on their front step. If they like to spend their time outdoors, a new set of gardening tools might be right up their alley.
Busy schedules with work and family can make life hectic on a day-to-day basis. Taking the time to regularly visit our grandparents can be difficult and a gap may come between visits. When it comes to celebrating our grandparents, the best gift we can give them will be a gift of time spent together. Perhaps they love a good card game or going to the movies makes them smile. Take Grandpa out for a round of golf; take Grandma out on a shopping date and lunch. A visit to the library would be wonderful for a booklover, and going to the museum would make an art fan smile. It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money to show someone that you care.
