September 13th ~ Grandparents Day
The first Sunday after Labor Day is National Grandparents Day. It was set in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter. To many, this may come as a surprise – such holidays are generally considered to be “Hallmark” holidays, and aren’t given much thought or respect.
The day’s purpose is cited as “…to honor your grandmother or grandfather, to give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children, and to help children become aware of the strength and experience older people can offer.”
As with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, taking one day out of the year to celebrate a special person in your life can do a world of good. Grandparents Day falls on Sunday, September 13th, 2009. Even if you have never celebrated Grandparents Day before, this year show your elders your appreciation somehow, whether it be with a simple visit to their home or in a more tangible way, like with a card or gift.
Show your grandparent how much you care with a personalized photo frame. Include your favorite picture or a photo of you and your grandparent(s). Frames can be personalized with up to six names, making it a one-of-a-kind gift they’ll treasure.
We carry various bracelets that are perfect for grandmothers: our Grandmother’s Live, Laugh, Love Bracelet features pink Swarovski crystals, Bali silver, and message beads, while our Expressively Yours Grandmother Bracelet has beautiful silver-like beads and a heart charm. Our Engraved Pocket Watch is an elegant gift for a grandfather.
