  1. A Favorite Photo Framed
    Does Grandma or Grandpa have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? Of themselves as a child? Their parents or grandparents? Their siblings? If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, reprinted on archival paper and framed. When presenting the framed photo as a gift, ask them to share the story behind it.
  2. Stroll Down Memory Lane
    Take a leisurely drive or stroll through the neighborhood where your grandparent grew up.

If the whole family comes along, rent a van and provide a written itinerary with the history and highlights. Enjoy a meal at their favorite neighborhood restaurant to cap off the special day.
  3. Make an Appreciation Book
    Ask family members to list five things they appreciate most about the grandparent. Maybe it’s their sense of humor, stories or cooking. Collect the lists and put them 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.
  4. Organizing their Photos
    While most Grandparents are the keepers of the old family photos, many lack the technical Gifts for Grandparents Legacy Videos by Family Line Video Chicago skills to preserve and distribute them. Give your grandparents the gift of a day spent going through the old photos together. Label, organize and discover the stories and family history behind them. Finally, scan them so they can be preserved and distributed in a digital format.
  5. Record Their Life Story
    For a truly special gift, capture their life story in a book, on audio tape or in a Video Biography (Video Memoir). You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing their story will be preserved and shared for years to come is a gift that is certain to touch them deeply.
