Now you may think that Grandparent’s Day is an American occasion however in the UK we do actually have our own day to celebrate grandparents too….
And why not, our grandparents are just as special as those across the Atlantic :)
What’s great about Grandparents?
Grandparents are so important to children in countless ways. Grandparents always have time and patience when parents are often rushing around being the busy bees that they are. Grandparents have loads of fun stories to tell, a repertoire of exciting games to play and, perhaps best of all, they are great for treats and the spoiling that children need once in a while!
What is Grandparents Day for?
Grandparents day has three main aims according to the National Grandparents Day website…
- To honour grandparents
- To give grandparents an opportunity to show love for their children’s children
- To help children become aware of the strength, information and guidance older people can offer
What's a perfect gift?
Of course, the most appropriate gift is our ‘grandpa’ and ‘grandma’ mug. Why not roll up your child’s drawing or pop something that they’ve made inside the mug as a welcome surprise… or fill the mug with each grandparent’s favourite treat.
Now as we all know grandparents are a much-loved member of the family so why not buy them one of our numerous ‘love’ items… maybe the mug set of two for both of them, espresso cup for those grandparents that like a strong coffee or perhaps just the best-selling ‘love’ jug?
The perfect one for granddad… ‘hero’ in the larger size bucket mug. Simple yet exactly what you want to say!
