I was today-years-old when I learned that National Grandparents Day is on September 9, and I’m so glad I found out about this special day before it was too late. If you’re like me and hadn’t heard of this holiday until clicking on this article, you may be trying to come up with some last-minute gift ideas for Grandparents Day. Now, I only have one surviving grandparent, unfortunately. However, my own parents are brand new grandparents as of May 29, so I can make sure my son Jack “gives” them some special gifts and does some fun activities with them this Sunday, even if it’s just baby cuddles while he sleeps since he’s only 3 months old. That’d be a pretty killer gift for them (and for me) in my opinion because who doesn’t love baby snuggles? Plus every new mom could use a little break now and then.
Whether you’re looking for ideas for your own grandparents or your kids’ grandparents, this list will have something for everyone. Etsy is a great place to find personalized gifts and something special you just won’t find anywhere else, and of course grandparents just love spending time with their grandchildren, so visits and quality-time activities are sure to make them smile. Even if it’s just a hand-drawn or colored picture from your kid for them to hang on the refrigerator, I’m sure they’ll love it no matter what, because that’s what grandparents do. Here are some ideas for some inspiration on how to celebrate the best grandparents in the world.
