  1. A Favorite Photo Framed
    Does your parent, grandparent or loved one have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? Of themselves as a child? Their parents or grandparents? Their siblings?

    If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, reprinted on archival paper and framed. When presenting the framed photo as a gift, ask your loved one to share the story behind it.

  2. A Stroll Down Memory Lane
    For a 80th birthday gift they are sure to love, take a leisurely drive or stroll through the neighborhood where they spent their childhood. Ask them to share stories and favorite memories of their youth.

    If the whole family comes along, rent a van and provide a written itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at their favorite restaurant to cap off the special day.

  3. An Appreciation Book
    Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about the celebrant. Maybe it’s their sense of humor, stories or cooking. Collect the lists and put them together in a book. Add photos for an extra special touch. When presenting the book, have each person read from their list with the out-of-towners reading their part over the phone or via Zoom.
  4. Organize their Photos
    While most grandparents are the keepers of the old family photos, many lack the technical skills needed to preserve and distribute them amongst family members. Give your loved one the gift of a day spent going through the old photos together. Label, organize and discover the family history behind them. Finally, scan the photos so they can be preserved and distributed in a digital format.
  5. Record Their Life Story
    For a truly special 80th birthday gift, capture their life story in a book, on audio tape or in a Legacy Video. You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing their story will be preserved and shared for generations to come is a 90th birthday gift that is guaranteed to touch them deeply.
