With the holidays approaching, it’s time to start thinking about gift-giving. As much as we love them, grandparents can be especially hard to shop for. In many families, grandparents are the ones who give, rather than receive, gifts. This holiday is the perfect time to find a meaningful gift for your elderly loved ones. BeeHive Homes is here with tips on what to gift your grandparents this holiday season.
- Personalized Gifts- Personalized gifts are a special way to gift something more thoughtful and sentimental. Whether your loved one enjoys cooking or cozying up with a good book and blanket, the options are endless. One place to shop for individualized gifts is Etsy, where individuals offer hand-crafted items. Etsy offers countless gift ideas fitting for anyone in the family.
- Games- Games can be a fun gift option for grandparents, especially games that can be played with a friend or neighbor, or played together as a family. When it comes to older generations, quality time is extremely important. Try gifting your grandparent something fun like “Grandparents and Grandkids TableTopics.” This option offers a way to get to know one another better and spend quality time.
- Family Photos- Creating an album of family photos or framing some special images can be an ongoing way to show your grandparent your love. This could a reminder of some of their most beloved memories or a more recent image of the family. Photos can also help start a conversation while you spend time together, telling stories and sharing memories. A sentimental image is a lot more than just a piece of paper.
- A Donation- If your grandparent is adamant to NOT give them a gift, perhaps making a donation to their favorite charity would be appreciated. That might be to a food bank, an organization serving children or seniors, or even a charity that provides farm animals to families in developing countries.
A special gift can mean more than just something to unwrap for the holidays. Although shopping for an elderly grandparent can be difficult, finding a gift with great meaning for them can mean more than you know. At BeeHive Homes in New Mexico, we know that the holidays can be difficult, especially for those in assisted living. Our caregivers strive to show your loved ones the care and holiday cheer they deserve. For more information on our services and our team, reach out to us.
