Grandparents Day Gifts
As important as honoring our elders is, Grandparent’s Day receives little publicity, and is an unknown holiday to many. Grandparent’s Day was founded in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter in response to a campaign headed by West Virginian housewife, Marian McQuade. McQuade wished to promote the cause of lonely elders in nursing homes, and so began her quest for this noble cause. The folks at Arttowngifts.com hope to bring some attention to this wonderful holiday because our elders are more than worth celebrating!! Send Grandma and Grandpa a gift this year to brighten up their day and shed a little light on a holiday they probably never even saw coming! Grandparent’s Day always falls on the first Sunday after Labor Day. In 2012, it falls on September 9th.
Find Gifts for Any of Grandpa's Hobbies!
If your grandpa is like mine, he is all about heading down to the lake and hoppin’ in his fishing boat! If this sounds familiar, check out the Gone Fishing Gift Set from arttowngifts.com. An adorable little fishing boat is stuffed to the brim with snacks and goodies for Grandpa to enjoy while out trolling for the big one! While you’re at it, take a look at their huge selection of gift baskets. Whether your grandfather enjoys golfing, hunting, NASCAR or loads of gourmet treats, there is certainly something for him! For the grandfather who enjoys poker night better than any other night of the week, visit the Poker Shop. Inside you will find poker sets themed after every hobby or interest in the book, along with poker pub plaques, coasters and steins. It’s a safe bet to say that the Poker Shop at arttowngifts.com has something for every card shark out there!
Help Grandma Relax with Lavender
My Grandma is a little more sentimental and a whole lot more mellow! She would adore the Grandma Nature’s Song Photo Frame. Insert a favorite picture and personalize with a sweet message to melt her heart. Nothing makes a Grandma prouder than her children and grandchildren, and she will love to brag to visitors about you with this terrific picture frame. If your grandmother enjoys kicking her feet up and relaxing, consider some Lavender Relaxation Booties! These booties feature heated lavender inserts that will keep her feet warm and her body nice and relaxed. Along with the booties, Grandma will receive lavender soap, lotion and body wash to make freshening up a very relaxing experience!
