Gifts for Grandparents

Make an Appreciation Book

Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about the grandparent. 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 Skype.

Stroll Down Memory Lane

Take a leisurely drive or stroll through the neighborhood where your grandparent grew up. Ask your grandparent to share memories of their childhood. If the entire family comes along, rent a van and provide a written itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at their favorite neighborhood restaurant to cap off the special day!

Organize their Photos

Gifts for Grandparents by Family Tree VideoWhile most Grandparents are the keepers of the old family photos, many lack the technical skills to preserve and distribute them. Give your grandparents the gift of a day spent going through the old photos together. Label, organize and discover the stories and family history behind them. Finally, scan them so they can be preserved and distributed in a digital format.

A Favorite Photo Framed

Does Grandma or Grandpa 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 them to share the story behind it.

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 either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing their story will be shared for generations to come is a gift that is guaranteed to move them deeply.
