5 Easy Ways To Show Your Grandparents That You Care
By: The Nixplay Team
Grandparents are some of the most special people on the planet. They are absolute gems, fussing over their grandkids and making sure they’re always happy and well-fed.
Your grandparents might be feeling lonely in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, having been forced to stay at home as they are more at risk. Fortunately, there are a lot of things that you can do to keep their spirits high in the midst of a global health crisis. Here are some of them.
Deliver food to them
While nothing compares to your grandmother’s cooking, even grandma must get tired of cooking her own food every now and then. Repay her for all the times that she plied you with food by sending her go-to dishes from her favorite restaurants. It’s a thoughtful gesture that she will appreciate, and will keep her tummy happy.
Share photos with them
Your grandparents always want to know what’s going on in your lives, especially during these days, when visiting is frowned upon. Frequently sending them photos will make their day and will make them feel loved and remembered.
Take it one step further by sending them a Nixplay Frame so your latest family photos are instantly displayed! Our Secret Sale is still going on, and you can get up to 30% off on selected frames until August 23.
Hop on a video call
If your grandparents are more tech-savvy, you can get on a video call with them. It’ll be nice to see their smiles and reactions through the screen as you tell them about the latest updates on your side of town.
Send them flowers
Flowers have a way of brightening anyone’s day. Surprise your grandparents with a beautiful arrangement every now and then to make their day better in a pinch. Don’t wait for a birthday or a special occasion–the best time to send flowers, after all, is when they’re least expected.
Mail them hand-drawn cards
Snail mail may be overlooked in favor of emails and text messaging, but handwritten letters and postcards will always be a delight to receive. Get the kids together to write letters and create cards for grandma and grandpa. You can expect their crafty masterpieces to be displayed for months to come!
