Nurturing the relationship of grandchildren with their nanas and papas is very important. Get the grandkids to make special artwork for their grandma or grandpa. Make sure to include a personal message in the gift.

Think of something that can be kept for years, like a flower vase, painting, or collage that they can hang on the wall. There are plenty of ideas online and your kids will also get a fun activity out of it.

Tickets to the Theatre

For theatre lovers, going to a play is a special moment, filled with emotion and delight. Choose a play that fits their taste and accompany them, or buy tickets for them and their best friend/spouse. Your cultured gift will surely be appreciated.

Give a Tree as a Gift

A tree symbolizes the sturdiness of life and strength in front of any adversity. Give a tree as a gift to show your appreciation to the 75-year-old in your life. Since planting a tree with a 75-year-old might not always be an option, consider making a donation in their name to an organization that plants trees.

Send a tree as a gift, in the form of a certificate with their name on it. That way you can celebrate their life and give back to the world too.

As many as you like!
