There’s no doubt grandparents are awesome. Who better to give you candy, let you stay up past your bedtime, and surround you with love? And as we get older, grandparents are a valuable lifeline to our past and our traditions, and great people to go to for advice.
With Grandparent’s day coming up Sunday, September 12th, we wanted to share a few of the ways in which we are honoring our kids' grandparents (and our own!)!
1. My Life Story
This journal offers prompts for your grandparents to fill in their life story. What a wonderful way to create a keepsake that will be treasured for years to come. The journal is organized in sections to capture memories and wisdom - there’s also a section for them to list the things they hope to accomplish next!
2. A Recipe Book
One of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t sit down with my grandmother and learn how to make some of her crispy Persian rice. If you’re lucky enough to have grandparents around who have been making family dishes that have been passed down for generations - get the recipes down while you can! Recipe books are easy to find online - so cute as a photo book!
Do grandparents ever tire of photos of their grandkids? With technology, it’s so easy to make photo books that they will love. There’s even an app that will do it for you! Another idea is to get them a digital frame, so you can just email your latest photos directly, and the frame will update with the new pics!
4. A Tiny Tags
Finally - our favorite way to honor grandma - give her a Tiny Tags! With so many personalized options, it’s easy to find a way for her to celebrate all her grandchildren.
Our top seller for grandmothers is our Family Bracelet. This bracelet (affectionately coined the ‘Grandmother bracelet’ around here) is perfect for growing families since it allows you to add tags when another bambino arrives. It’s also the best option for the blessed grandma who has a big family, since you can add up to ten tags, and engrave front and back for a total of 20 names!
If your family is complete, a great necklace option is our Circle Pendant. This statement piece can fit 5 names on the front and 5 on the back. They are also great with a custom phrase or message just for grandma.
Our Bar Bracelets are another great way to show grandma how much she means to you. Some of our favorites include putting their nicknames on the front, with a sweet message on the back! Plus, you can get matching for you and your mom, or your mom and mother-in-law.
We’ve also seen some beautiful Script Nameplate necklaces with adorable nicknames.
Whatever you choose, the grandparents in your life are sure to love and appreciate it. They’re wonderfully easy to please when it comes to their little ones!
