Fun Ideas Made for Grandmothers
Grandmothers Love Jewelry To Remind Them of Their Grandchildren ... and the Grandchildren Love It, Too!
How To Build a Bond With Your Grandchildren
With seven grandchildren ranging in age from newborn to college senior, my husband and I have learned that the key to having a great relationship with your grandchildren is much simpler than I could have imagined. The most important thing you can do is spend time with them, whenever you can.
In our family, we are fortunate to have three grandchildren who live fairly close to us. One is in college, about an hour's drive from our home. She often drives down and spends a night or two with us, just to get away from the dorm and to find a quiet place to relax. She also comes to see us when she is sick and needs a little "mothering." It makes my husband and I feel wonderful when she reaches out to us, even though she is twenty years old and in college. We know that you are never too old to need your grandparents.
Two other grandchildren live just a few miles from us. One is in high school and one is in middle school. I often help my working daughter out by either taking her kids to school or picking them up and getting them an after-school treat. While this makes like easier for our daughter, it also gives me a chance to spend time with these grandchildren and enjoy being with them.
We are not so lucky to be near our other four grandchildren. However, we try to spend a week or two with them every year. This is so important in building a bond with your grandchildren.
Enjoy Anything That Reminds You of Your Grandchildren
Most grandmothers enjoy owning things that remind them of their grandchildren. Each grandchild is different and they all bring us great joy ... whether the one in college is dropping by for dinner or we are babysitting the younger ones.
As a result of the delight I get from wearing my grandmother jewelry, it can be fun to give similar jewelry items to some of our friends who are becoming first time grandmothers.
You'll discover that many of your friends are absolutely delighted when you hand them a box with a grandmother or "nana" necklace inside ... especially when they have just learned that they will become a grandmother soon.
In fact, this has become my favorite gift for my friends when they find out that one of their children is expecting their first child.
I Especially Love Birthstone Jewelry That Reminds Me of Each One of My Grandchild
Any Grandmother who has several grandchildren loves having a necklace that can be personalized with the birthstones of each of her grandchildren. It will be a gift that is unique to her particular family and a piece of jewelry that she will really cherish.
Most grandkids love seeing their grandmother wear a necklace that was made with their birthstones, and the younger ones enjoy touching the different colored stones and learning which one is meant for them.
This choice includes a birthstones and the words "Nana we love you." Isn't that sweet? The grandchildren will love knowing that those stones represent them!
