There are few things in life more special than getting to spend time with multiple generations of your family. Grandparents are often considered the backbone of a family--providing for their children while teaching them the ways of world, and then those children had you. Being able to see the relationship bloom between grandparents and grandchildren is special because there is a lightness and ease that exists there that isn't often present between parents and children because of the need for rules and order.
You should celebrate your grandparents every day, but an extra day to do that, besides birthdays and holidays, is on Grandparents Day. Started in 1973, Grandparents Day was started with a goal to educate youth about the important contributions that seniors have made throughout history. This day is about honoring grandparents, allowing grandparents to show love for their grandchildren and helping those grandchildren become aware of the strength and guidance that an older generation can offer.
To make Grandparents Day extra special for your grandma or grandpa, send them a Grandparents Day card. Whether it is a super sappy pre-written card or one that you designed especially for them, they will appreciate the thought and effort. If there is one thing that grandparents love, it is photos of their grandchildren. Create a Grandparents Day card that features photos of all the grandchildren in their life, so they can proudly display the card and show off to their friends.
A card for Grandparents Day is a great way to show your grandparents that you care and are always thinking about them. It is especially helpful if you can't see them in person to express that love. Sending them a card, especially a personalized one with photos, will get that message across that, while you can't be physically with them that day, they are always on your mind.
