  1. A Favorite Photo Framed
    Does Grandma have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? From her wedding day? Of her parents or herself as a child? Games Life story video biographies by Family Line Video If the photo is in poor condition or too small to properly display, have it digitally restored, enlarged and reprinted on archival paper. For an extra special touch, make a copies for the entire family. When presenting the gift, be sure to have her tell the story behind the photo!
  2. A Drive Down Memory Lane
    Take a leisurely drive or walk through the neighborhood Grandma grew up in and let her recount her memories. If the whole family comes along, rent a van or a bus and distribute a written itinerary with family photos featuring the highlights. Make an afternoon of it and stop at her favorite neighborhood restaurant for a family lunch or dinner.
  3. Spend Day Going Through Old photos
    Legacy Videos by Family Line VideWhile most Grandmothers are the keepers of the old family photos, many lack the technical skills to preserve and distribute them. Give Grandma the gift of a family day together going through the old photos, labeling, organizing and learning the stories behind them. Then scan them so they can be preserved and distributed in a digital format.
  4. An Appreciation Book
    Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about Grandma. Maybe it’s her chocolate brownies, her hugs or her birthday cards. Collect the lists and put them together in a book. Add photos for an extra special touch. When presenting the book, have each family member read their list. Out-of-towners can read their list via Skype.
  5. Capture Her Life Story
