National Grandparents Day is coming up on September 8th. It’s a day dedicated to appreciating all of the love and care that our elders have shown to us throughout our lives. Grandmas and grandpas have been there for us all of our lives, and one day out of the year can’t compare to the years of dedication they’ve provided. Even so, if you want to do something special for them and give them a grandparent gift they’ll cherish for years, here are some ideas.
A small keepsake is sometimes all that’s needed to remember those irreplaceable moments in your life. Remind a loved one of the joys and happiness of events that happen only once in a lifetime.

“Willow Tree is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch… I like for the viewer to become a participant in the understanding of the piece. It makes it more personal for the giver and the receiver to envision what or whom they want.” –Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate new beginnings, new babies, new families… and the loving relationships that develop between grandparent and child.
“I carved this piece directly from my memory of time spent with my own grandmother. Sitting down with her, holding her hand, turning her wedding rings, asking questions about her life and listening to her stories. I’ve always been interested in oral history and the passing down of stories from one generation to the next. I think learning from those who have come before us helps define who we are – it grounds us. Their story is our story.” —Susan Lordi
A gift to celebrate the loving relationships that develop between grandparent and child.
