It’s an understatement to say that grandparents hold a special place in children’s hearts for a lifetime. They come in all shapes and sizes, and whether they’re your maternal grandparents, paternal grandparents, or ones that aren’t blood-related, you can always count on your grandma or grandpa to be a boundless source of unconditional love and wholehearted support. As a child, the memories made with your grandparents are probably some of your most cherished today. Their house was the gathering place for family events, they always managed to sneak extra cookies or sweets when your parents weren’t looking, and they always told the best stories. It’s these core memories that make it all that more special when you have children of your own and you get to watch your own parents fill those big shoes. Witnessing your parents become grandparents is one of the greatest joys in life. They say it takes a village, and grandparents are often a huge part of that village. Happily and unselfishly, they shoulder some of the burden that comes with raising a baby, supporting and guiding new parents through the fog of the hardest years.
The role grandparents play in the lives of young children is an important one that produces a mutually beneficial relationship. Studies have shown that grandparents who are actively involved in their grandchildren’s lives are more physically active, with lower levels of stress and depressive moods. Children who have a close bond with their grandparents have fewer emotional and behavioral problems. Both these grandparents and their grandchildren are less likely to experience anxiety, loneliness, and/or depression. With even studies to back up what we already knew, there’s no question that grandparents play an essential role in society. Falling on the first Sunday in September after Labor Day each year, Grandparents’ Day is a time to express our gratitude for the special people who make every day significantly better. Use our gift guide below to get the perfect gift for the grandparents in your life, and one that they’ll actually love and use for years to come.
