Gifts for Grandparents
A Favorite Photo Framed
Does Grandma or Grandpa have a special photo tucked away somewhere? One of their parents or grandparents? Themselves with 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, ask your grandparent to share their memories behind it!
An Appreciation Book
Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about the grandparent. Maybe it’s their sense of humor, gift for storytelling or cooking skills. Collect the lists and put them together in a keepsake book. When presenting the book, ask each family member to read their list for a more personal touch!
Organize their Photos
While most Grandparents are the keepers of old family photos, many lack the technical skills needed to preserve and distribute these priceless windows into your family history. Give your grandparents the gift of a day spent going through old family photos together. Label, organize and discover the stories and family history behind them. Finally, scan the photos so they can be preserved and shared with family members in a digital format.
Record Their Life Story
For a truly special gift, capture their life story in a book, on audio tape or in a Legacy Video. You can do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing their story will be shared for generations to come is a gift guaranteed to touch your grandparent deeply.
A Stroll Down Memory Lane
Take a leisurely stroll or drive through your grandparent’s childhood neighborhood. long the way, ask them to share memories of their youth. If the entire family comes along, provide an itinerary with the history of the neighborhood and highlights!
