Oooh, nice one! We got our grandparents little Vistaprint photobooks from the wedding, and then we’re getting them either a candle or a framed 8X10 of the family photo from the wedding. It’s kind of a cheap gift, but we’re skimping on everyone this year :/. Stupid ‘having to have money before you can buy gifts’ thing, lol ;).

We sent my husband’s grandparents an assortment of cookies/treats wrapped all pretty.

My grandfather reads like a book a day so we got him a gift card to Barnes & Noble and we’re going to write him a sweet card, maybe give him a framed picture…

Not much.Big family and I was already a little overextended. My grandma lives in England so I sent her a bouquet. Thought that was creative. Who expects to get flowers from someone in another country? 🙂

Just bought their gift today.  I’ve been trying to come up with something outside of my normal gift of sweater/purfume/purse/scarf/etc.

We got them tickets to see Cirque du Soliel.  I hope they like it.

My grandparents legit are so old and my grandpa can’t walk… my gramma just was in the hospital was a MRSA infection in her leg that caused her to lose almost half of her calf… They refuse to go into a home, and they really need to.  They have a lot of stuff so I didn’t know what to get them.

So I got my gramma a blanket to keep warm, and my grandpa a housecoat to keep warm.  

I guess I have this idea that old people are cold people?

I got them (mine and FI’s) a nice print of one of our engagement pictures in a frame. Never know what to get them as they always say they have everything! Hopefully they like it 🙂

Last year I made them a photo book with shutterfly, which they loved, but this year…  I’ve been a terrible granddaughter!  I was thinking about making them this cool family tree I saw on Pinterest, but I fear I don’t have enough time or good enough handwriting.  

This is what it looks like (sorry so big!):
