Grandpa might not get his own Department 56 decoration, but he does get to be the subject of a Christmas film!
A Grandpa for Christmas is a heart-warming tale of reconciliation. Little Becca never met her Grandfather. He is estranged from his daughter, her mother.
But circumstances conspire to see Becca delivered to the old man's door during the festive season. Can he cope with looking after her? Can she get on with this stranger and his elderly friends?
Of course they can! This is a family oriented Christmas movie, full of awwws and other sweet moments, about the relationship between Grandpas and Grand-daughters.
Now all Becca needs do is bring her mother back into the fold...
Christmas Tree Decoration for Grandad
If your grandfather isn't the type for heart-warming, family movies, then there is actually an ornament that you could get for him.
It's a decoration for Grandpa's Christmas tree, which announces the great patriarch himself.
The man! The myth! The legend! I can't see him quibbling about that much, can you? Plus it's a great way to let him know precisely how he's viewed in your eyes.
I ended up with a couple of tears halfway through, remembering my own grandparents. I wish it had been here too then! (And I wish that they were here now.)
I wish this article had been written years ago was i was struggling for ideas! lol
You had a photo album each? Awww! I like that idea! And yes, I think that yours should too.
'Grandpa! The man, the myth, the legend'
My parents are grandparents. My older brother has used this to his advantage to put together some really cute presents. My favorite thing about visiting my grandparents house when I was little was all the picture books they had for each of us, because we could go through them and there were pictures of us from babies to the most recent. I think my parents need grand baby picture books, they don't have any, and I really think they should.
Me too! Oh me too! They are quite lovely.
These are all wonderful ideas, Jo! I hope some of them make some grandparents happy this holiday season!
