We all know our grandparents don’t want anything from us for Christmas except to be together for the holidays and maybe a couple school pictures of the kiddos. Yet it’s in our nature to be giving and thoughtful.
This year for Christmas, I’m giving my 87-year-old grandma locally grown strawberries that I stuck away this summer and a few nicely portioned freezer bags of fully cooked rotisserie chicken. I think she’ll use the juicy strawberries to dot her tiny bowls of vanilla ice cream. And after a conversation we had this fall about rotisserie chicken, I know she’ll enjoy a few lunch sandwiches and think of me.
At least this year she won’t unwrap a box full of single-serve soups, only to find out a few weeks later that grandma doesn’t like soup but was too nice to tell me.
What are some thoughtful gifts you’ve given to your elderly grandparents or parents?Sweet holiday wishes, Staci
