Grand Gift Ideas for Grandparents that Say "Thank You" and "I Love You"

by - September 16, 2019

Read: Grand doesn't necessarily mean expensive. 

National Grandparents' Day celebration may be over, but I guess we can all agree that our lolos and lolas (and even our parents who are now grandparents to our own kids) deserve to be celebrated any time of the year. Besides, the holidays are upon us as the 'ber' season has officially started this month, so this might help you think of the perfect gift to give your folks this Christmas.

1. The Gift of Time

When was the last time that you actually took some time off from your daily grind to sit down and talk to your folks about how they're doing? While I would agree that earning money for the family is important, spending time with our ageing lolos and lolas is also precious. As Rick Warren puts it,

"Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can' make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time." 
When you do visit them, you may also give them this cute wall clock from Papemelroti to remind them that you remember them always:

2. The Gift of Smiles

It's true what they say, "Pictures are worth a thousand words." Put a smile on your abuela and abuelo's face by showing them how much they are loved by giving them personalized photo gifts that feature their favorite people in the world.

Forget the usual boring picture frame and choose from a wide variety of ways you can preserve your beautiful memories at Photobook Philippines. From wedding albums, engagement books, books of trips and one full of family pictures, to personal portfolios, Nana and Papa won't definitely run out of ways to show off their family in the usual, "Wala ka sa apo ko" manner.

3. The Gift of (Retail) Therapy

You might think that shopping is only for youngsters, but Grande-mere and Grand-pere also love it as well! You would too if you have been slaving for 40 or more years as a corporate employee and now you have all the time in the world to visit malls. Have the whole family pitch in for a grand gift certificate that they can spend shopping for anything they want.

Remind them not to use the GC on maintainance medicine, though! Allow them to enjoy the gift certificate on things that they don't normally buy for themselves. Trust me, this would be something that they would truly cherish and remember.

4. The Gift of More Memories

Make more memories with Oma and Opa through a bakasyon grande they will never forget. The tough part in planning a vacation trip with the folks is making sure that everyone (from the kids to the oldies) will enjoy. Remember: traveling with them doesn't have to be a lame fest!

Check out The Farm at San Benito in Batangas

This first class retreat place is only a few hours from Manila. It features 48 hectares of land in the foothills of Mount Malarayat. It's the perfect place to visit for taking a break from the noise of the city, finding your inner peace, and nourishing your senses.

They also offer holistic treatments conducted by licensed and competent doctors, nutritionists, therapists, living food chefs, yoga teachers, and fitness coaches.

And after enjoying all these wellness activities, you can enjoy a healthy, delicious and aesthetically appealing nutrient rich vegan cuisine.

5. The Gift of Strength

I can't imagine a life without my parents. They've been with me through all the important milestones of my life, and now that I'm also a mom, they have been so hands-on in taking care of my son as well. I know they're not getting any younger, so I always remind them to have a healthy diet and take their vitamins regularly. Nevertheless, it wouldn't hurt to give them an extra boost, right?

Give your loved ones the gift of strength so they can continue to be strong to do the things they love and share moments full of life.
