It's Nana and Grandpa's Special Day!
Nana and Grandpa deserve the absolute best! For being our constant source of love, wisdom, valuable lessons, and yes cookies! Who doesn't miss our favorite Nana’s food? When we are feeling under the weather, Nana knows exactly what we need, and we feel so much better in no time. Grandpa’s stories and jokes never bore us. Ohhh… how we miss being a child and being with them.
So very soon, we will celebrate a special day for them (though we can celebrate it every goddamn day!? Oops! We should still watch our mouths around them.
To help you get some ideas for your Nana or Grandpa’s special day on the 8th of September, we’ve put 8 special items that can be clever, practical, or even funny gifts, that for sure, no matter what they’d still love and keep as a treasure.
MINI CACTUS CANDLES
Let’s start with candles, now Nana loves tea time, and let us make it extra special and extra cute with these miniature cactus candles. The whole candle from top to bottom burns for about an hour. Cactus candles match dessert miniatures such as succulents, and other types of cactus.
MAGNETIC POETRY PICK UP LINE KIT
For our grandparents who like words. Make it a bit naughtier and funnier with this pick-up line kit. The Magnetic Poetry - Pick Up Lines Kit contains over 200 themed magnetic word tiles in a cute, colorful, giftable 4.75 x 3-inch box. Rearrange the words to write poems, messages to your grandpa and nana, or to any of your loved ones. It is good to have some laughs during afternoon tea or after dinner (wink, wink).
FIRE EXTINGUISHER MINI BAR
Now this one might need some approval from Nana, but how cool if you give your grandpa's favorite whiskey in this very cool fire extinguisher mini-bar? Things can be both cool, and thoughtful especially if your granddad was or still is a fireman. It can hold up to 10L drinks and have enough space for some glass and accessories.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT GRANDMA JOURNAL
Now this one, aside from being super cute, it is more thoughtful as well. You can write everything that you love about Nana! From her cookies to her flowers in the garden, that maybe you used to pick up when you were 5. One thing is guaranteed about this gift, it will surely make her maybe a bit teary-eyed? Or just bring some tissue just in case.
PERSONALIZED PEG DOLL
This sentimental personalized peg doll family framed portrait makes for a seriously touching gift. For the proud Grandpa and Nana of your tribe, there’s nothing better than being able to legend of your family to life in a creative display. Your new peg doll family will become a cherished conversation piece for generations to come. It will surely doll up the house!
NIXPLAY SMART WIFI PHOTO FRAME
When times that you can’t make it to the Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas and are very tempted to send photos to them, and they are not tech-savvy with emails and WhatsApp, set them up with this digital frame. This is one (techy) way to find a unique way to keep in touch or connect with families and loved ones.
SHARK NOVELTY DRINKING GLASS
Now your grandpa might hate the Baby Shark song, but you can gift him with this shark attack novelty drinking glass. He can have a whiskey or rum while babysitting… only if Nana is around. Grandpa can now (maybe) enjoy “Baby shark doo doo doo doo doo doo... ”. Cheers pop!
DEATH WISH COFFEE (WORLD’S STRONGEST COFFEE)
For grandparents whose, Mr. Coffee is on its last legs. You can gift them with not only the best but also the strongest coffee in the world. Now maybe Death Wish Coffee sounds a little off, but it is the coffee to die for! If you’re concerned about freshness, you do have the option of buying whole beans rather than pre-ground. Just make sure Nana and Grandpa have a grinder.
But no matter what you or not get for them, nothing can beat your presence on this special day, or any other day with your grandparents. Let us show them love and kindness and so much more. And there is this famous saying, you will never starve in your grandparent’s house. But yeah, maybe watch for those cookies.
