I'm not a grandparent, but am a parent of an infant and a toddler. I'm asking you, the experts, what gifts would be most well-received by my children's grandparents. What kinds of things do you like from your grandchildren?
Thanks for your advice!
Blessings!

Pictures always! - anything the child has made himself/herself. My eight year old grandson's first letter to me. A small framed"picture" from the grandchildren, of small owls, where the body of each owl was their thumbprint, and it said "Thumbody loves you". Their handprint cast in plaster.

As your children are so young, it is hard to have them make something yet. As the previous person said, pictures are nice. Her picture frame sounded neat. What hobbies do the grandparents have--do they travel--do crafts---read - play golf--cards. If so maybe they can pick out something and "write/color a special picture.

My first card this year was from my grandson Dale. Red and green wallpaper cut/ripped ??? in the shape of a tree with a gold star on the top. Anything made by my grandchildren is so appreciated.
