Coming soon is National Grandparent’s Day. This holiday was started in 1978 to be the first Sunday after Labor Day. It is a wonderful holiday, with limited publicity.  This year, it will be celebrated on September 8th. And if you order soon, you should have plenty of time to order that special gift for your loving grandparents.

There are of course several reasons why we would want to purchase a gift for our grandparents. They do so much for us. From kissing boo-boos and making cookies when we are little, to helping us to negotiate and understand our parents when we are teenagers. And then for a few of us lucky ones, being there for us when our children are born and witnessing and guiding us to be great parents.

Celebrating grandparent’s day is a great way to show them how much they mean to you. This is also a great way to show your children that older generations have a lot of knowledge and information to offer.

Many grandparents these days are still quite active people. In fact some more so than those still working their way up in their 70′s. From social events, to volunteer work, and of course family. The golden years are sometimes the busiest years! Therefore, fitting things into their social life can be difficult. Consider purchasing them one of our uniquely designed calendars.
