Remember always being pampered, smothered and being fed the most delicious food while at your grandparents? Well, this Grandparents’ Day (September 11) it is time to shower all the love, affection and attention right back at them.
Show your thakumas, didimas and dadus all the love you can, because they were always the ones to spoil you the most as kids. Here are a few thoughtful gifts you can get your grandparents to show them some lovin’…
For your granddad
If your granddad is a voracious reader, chances are he has quite the library of one-of-a-kind books. Well, get him these gorgeous bookends to give his library a makeover. Not only will these help keep his books more organised but will also add a chic vibe to his shelves of books.
Have an artistic grandpop? If so, then it’s time to get him this sketchbook. With paper handmade from white recycled cotton and a cover made with vintage newspaper, this 16-page sketchbook has a black cotton spine as well. The paper is acid and lignin free, and perfect for sketches and watercolour. Add in a few art supplies to the cart and you’ve got the perfect gift.
There’s a deep emotional connection that granddads have with their rocking chairs (or so it would seem). If your granddad doesn’t have one, it is imperative for you to get him this. This comfy chair is perfect to sit in and enjoy a good book or even sneak a quick nap in. We promise you, he will love it.
For your grandma
Remember all the lullabies your grandmother sang to you in your childhood? If she has a knack for music, spoil her with a Carvaan radio. Preloaded with thousands of retro songs, this will become your grandma’s new BFF. Pick from a number of colours available and languages of songs, and make her very happy.
Taking care of everyone all the time seems to be an innate trait of all grandmothers. In the hustle of life, sometimes they forget to take care of themselves. This Grandparents’ Day, gift her the joy of self-care. This zero-waste hamper includes a number of natural and organic products that will help her take better care of herself. From skincare to haircare, these hampers have it all.
Set of pearls
If your grandmom loves jewellery, gift her an elegant and timeless set of pearls which she can adorn even everyday even if Julia Child isn’t her style inspiration. These pearls are versatile, lightweight and never go out of fashion. You can be sure she will absolutely adore them!
