Grandparent’s Day has been around for more than 35 years. It’s coming up again on September 7th. Some people love it. Some have never heard of it. Why do I LOVE IT? Because grandparents can give their grand kids something parents cannot-the gift of slowing down and not taking ordinary things for granted. Grandparents are in a unique position to pass on the wisdom that we’ve gleaned and in doing so kids (whether consciously or not) get the CLUE that these awesome old people hold the keys to the past as well as the future.
My son and daughter truly get a kick out of discovering the world with their grandma whether it’s exploring the dark with a flashlight, learning new things on the computer, growing any kind of seed they can find or traveling to places they haven’t been before and for some reason when kids are involved in said activities with their grandparent- the activity ( no matter how seemingly simple) is always a hit.
So if you are looking to shower the Grandparent in your life with some sweet treats, as a way to thank your parents for their guidance and for inspiring their grandchildren’s imaginations, opening their minds to new ideas and concepts, and helping them develop their social skills the gifting experts at GourmetGiftBaskets.com have assembled a list that can help anyone navigate what to get grandparents this year. Keep reading for GourmetGiftBaskets.com’s Top 5 Gifts For Grandies — a guide and a gentle nudge to send the grandparent in your life something nice- and how you can win their Wine Party Picnic Ravenswood Duo, ($99.99) from us!
