When the Christmas season began, Jeremy and I pretty much knew what each one of our family members were going to get from us, except for Jeremy's grandmothers. What do you get an 85 year old grandma, who doesn't need anything. Because really, at that age, they just want to be remembered, right? The present isn't really that big of a deal, just the fact that we were thinking of them, right? I racked my brain for days. Then I remembered this picture:
I took this picture of Big Babci, while we were out visiting during the summer. I LOVE this photo, because it always reminds me on how intent she was working on her word puzzles. Each afternoon, while we were playing in the pool, she would sit under the umbrella next to the pool and work on her word puzzles.
So I decided to get each great grandma a book of word searches. But, it still didn't seem complete. I really like to get things a little bit more personal.
So again, I racked my brain on how to finish their present.
I'm getting them books, so why not get them bookmarks. Which then spiraled into making some personalized ones with the boys pictures on them. Easy! Cheap! But yet, what Grandparent wouldn't love to see their beautiful grandchildren, each time they opened their favorite book.
So Jeremy and I sat down and designed these (simple to make and can be printed on photo paper on your own computer):
And since we knew that our parents *may* be a little jealous, we added them to the mix:
But next year, I am going to need a new idea. Do you have any DIY ideas for Grandparent gifts? I would LOVE to hear from you.
