~ Gifts for Grandpa ~
- Organize His Photos
Give Grandpa the gift of a day going through his old family photos together. Label, organize and learn about the stories and family history behind them. Finally, scan the photos so they can be preserved and shared among family members or uploaded to a family website!
- A Stroll Down Memory Lane
Take a drive or stroll through the neighborhood where Grandpa grew up and let him recount his memories. If the whole family comes along, rent a van and hand out an itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at a favorite restaurant or a picnic to cap off the special day.
- Record His Life Story
For a truly special gift for grandpa, capture his 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 his life story will be shared for generations to come is a gift that is guaranteed to move him deeply.
- An Appreciation Book
Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about Grandpa. Maybe it’s his anecdotes, jokes or the sound of his laugh. Gather the lists together in a book or tribute video. Add photos for an extra special touch.
- A Favorite Photo Framed
Does Grandpa have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, enlarged, reprinted on archival paper and framed. When presenting the framed photo as a gift, ask him to share the story behind it.
