Best Gifts for Your Grandparents
Celebrating with loved ones, especially grandparents who you don't see all the time, is what the holidays are all about. Grandparents are special people who deserve a thoughtful and heartfelt gift. Finding a gift that they will love is actually quite easy, as your grandparent or grandparents are likely to be overjoyed with anything that you pick out for him or her.
Arguably the best gift that you can give to your grandmother or grandfather this holiday season is something that money can't buy. The present that they're likely to treasure above all else is the gift of your time. It's not always easy to fit in seeing them during the busy day-to-day of the year and it's likely something that they miss. This year, treat your grandparents to a day of cooking and baking together, an afternoon of playing cards or a day spent walking at the local park.
Heated Blanket or Comforter
It's not uncommon for older people to crank the heat up as soon as the leaves begin to fall, sometimes even before then! Finding a warm and cozy heated blanket is something your grandparents will be sure to enjoy. They'll remain warm and comfortable all night long. If your grandparents already have a heated blanket, take it one step further and present them with a heated comforter or heated mattress pad.
Everyone loves a good pair of fuzzy, soft slippers to wear around the house during the chilly winter months and there's no one who would appreciate a pair more than your grandfather. Treat your favorite guy to a quality set of slippers that will keep his toes toasty warm all the way until springtime.
A creative and thoughtful gift for grandparents that's also fun to make, is a family photo album or scrapbook. The holiday season is a great time to pour through old albums, bins and boxes of family photographs. Put together a colorful book that includes baby pictures, wedding photos and all other pictures of family holidays and events. Another great idea is to gather all of your home videos through the years and combine them onto one DVD for your grandparents. After all the gifts have been opened and all the food has been eaten, popping in the DVD of family milestones is a great way to bring everyone together.
