Grandparents are incredibly special—and my children's grandmas and grandpas are especially incredible.
We see my parents every day. They help take care of my kids daily, spoil them wholeheartedly, and love them unconditionally. They change diapers, buy presents, make meals, read bedtime stories, kiss boo-boos, and basically act as a second set of parents for my two lucky littles.
My in-laws live on a picturesque horse farm in Kentucky. We are fortunate to visit at least once a year, and my kids get to experience a whole other type of lifestyle. They have farm chores and acres to run and miniature horses to ride. Plus, they get tons of fun, games, and play time with GraMilli and Pop-Pop.

I'm so thankful for everything all four grandparents do for us and with us every day. But I probably don't express my gratitude as often or as thoughtfully as I should.
National Grandparents Day is this Saturday, September 11. I plan to celebrate with lots of quality extended family time and a long FaceTime session with my lovely in-laws. I've also found a few really meaningful gifts to help show how much I care and appreciate the grandparents in our lives.
I've rounded up nine sweet, charming, and thoughtful presents for Grandma and Grandpa. But, really, if they're anything like our grams and gramps, a phone call, a letter, an email, or, better yet, a visit and a hug is only the gift they ever really want or need.
