Being a grandparent is one of life’s most wonderful milestones. We asked a group of grandparents for ideas. They gave us this list of great gifts for grandparents that preserve memories! Here’s what they told us.
GIFTS FOR GRANDPARENTS
Here’s an especially fabulous gift that will be treasured by family members for years to come! Most older people enjoy is talking about “the good old days” and sharing their memories, and these stories are ones you definitely want to preserve! My Life In A Book is a Story Prompt Program that will send one thought-provoking question to your loved one every week for a year via email. At the end of a year, or whenever they feel ready, they will compile all their stories in a beautiful keepsake book to be treasured for generations to come. It’s also a perfect last-minute gift because it doesn’t require shipping!

Each letter has a unique prompt like Here is a special story about our family…, What I want you to know about me…, The best advice anyone ever gave me was…, and My wishes for you are…After completing the letters, they can postdate, seal with the included stickers, and gift this paper time capsule for future reading. Their grandchild – and generations to come – will treasure this heirloom forever.
