Non-Traditional Gifts for Parents and Grandparents


Do you have a few people on your list that are really difficult to buy for. You know the ones . . . they don't really need anything, yet you want to give them something special. Actually, I am one of those people. Being a grandmother with a house full of necessities and luxuries, I don't really need any more "things", but love experience-based gifts. Here is a short list of a few things that have either been on my list or are currently on my wish list.

A subscription to StoryWorth. My daughters and their families gift this to me for my birthday and I absolutely LOVE it! I did a whole blog post about it over on my personal blog, Mommy's Treasures, so check it out if you'd like. If you would like to purchase a subscription for yourself or someone you love, use this link to get a little discount.

A Gift Certificate to a park, museum or camping area. My husband love to go camping and sometimes even get to meet up with other members of our family while we are camping. A gift certificate to a state park or camping location would be a great gift. A membership to a local museum would also be a great gift, especially if it allows for family as well. 

A subscription to Dot To Dot Connections.  I know, I know, this is my own company. But, truthfully, this is exactly the type of gift I would have loved to receive! Grandparents often want to spend quality time with their grandchildren, but they no longer have all the materials on hand to complete a bunch of different activities and don't want to buy a bunch of excess stuff. Dot To Dot Connection Boxes contain everything you need to complete 8-10 different activities AND it all neatly fits inside a box! Right now, there are Holiday Gift Subscriptions available--buy now and you can receive a card that can be presented to the recipient before the first box arrives in January.
