Did you know that this Sunday is Grandparent's Day? A special holiday devoted to all the amazing grandmas, grandpas, nanas, papas, grammys, and grampys out there? (We spend most weekends with my parents--so this sounds like every Sunday to me!) Nevertheless, I have to admit, I've never really acknowledged this calendar occasion in the past. Instead, we've celebrated both grandmas on Mother's Day and both grandpas on Father's Day. But, this year, we'll shower them with extra love, special attention, and sweet little gifts... Because if anyone is deserving of a second special day—it's grandparents!
To celebrate, I've rounded up a few fun finds that are perfect for Grandma and Grandpa. From framed photos to easy-to-use gadgets, here are a few perfect picks for G-Ma, Mamey, PopPop, Bobo... or, you know, whatever you and your kids call 'em!
