Many people call us looking for a special Grandmother gift, either to give at some meaningful point throughout the year, or for Grandparents Day. Did you know that the impetus for National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia? Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. That means that in 2011, Grandparents Day falls on September 11th. I know that 9-11 is an eminently important day for our country, but I hope and trust that the 10th anniversary of 9/11 won’t overshadow the importance of this year’s special Grandparents Day in 2011.
One of my favorite presents for Grandma is this “Grandmas give the biggest hugs” garden stone! This cast stone garden stone would look nice in her garden, or yours! Another nice option is a garden dedication stone, which has the option of appearing with the sweet text, “Grandma’s Garden.”
