    A Favorite Photo Framed

    Does Grandpa have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? Of him as a young boy? His parents or grandparents? His siblings? If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, enlarged, reprinted on archival paper and framed. When presenting the framed photo as a gift, ask him to share the story behind it.

    A Stroll Down Memory Lane

    Take a leisurely drive or stroll through the neighborhood where Grandpa grew up and let him recount his memories. If the whole family comes along, rent a van and hand out a written itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at his favorite neighborhood restaurant to cap off the special day.

    An Appreciation Book

    Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about Grandpa. Maybe it’s his anecdotes, jokes or the sound of his laugh. Gather the lists together in a book. Add photos for an extra special touch. When presenting the book, have each person read from their list with the out-of-towners reading their part over the phone or via Skype.

    Organize His Photos

    While most Grandparents are the keepers of the old family photos, many lack the technical skills to preserve and distribute them. Give Grandpa the gift of a day spent going through the old photos together, labeling, organizing and learning about the stories and family history behind them. Then scan them so they can be preserved and distributed in a digital format.

    Record His Life Story

    For a truly special gift for grandpa, capture his life story, family history and memories in a book, on audio tape or in a Legacy Video. You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing his story will be known and shared for years to come, is a gift certain to move him deeply.
