Why not a three generations family’s night out ?

The gifts ideas for a grand-mother are not that numerous and they really depend on the situation of your grand-mother.

You can always go with the traditional box of fine chocolates. You already know that she will offer some to all her guest, but it’s not really a matter since she will like them anyway. It’s the same thing with the box of fine crackers or cookies…

Generally, she will enjoy a family picture or pictures of her child’s. However, offer her nicely framed pictures that will be pretty with the frames that she already have. If you offer her a picture each year, be sure that the format will fit whit the ones she already have…

Grand-mothers love to get a nice tablecloth or a pretty floral center piece. A fresh cut bouquet can also be appreciated for her anniversary, Easter, Christmas or simply as a hostess gift.

Gift examples for a sister

Our sister is a good confidante and usually gives us good advices. You never pass by the opportunity to please her and thank her for all that she’s done for you. Of course, your sister’s age will have a big influence on the type of gift that you will offer her…

However, here are many gift examples for a sister that will guide your choices.

What can be better then a special massage session ? This can be in her region or near in order to facilitate the access.

If your budget allows it, and that your sister is in order to travel, why not offer her a massage in one of those extraordinary spas up north ? You can join the massage with a sauna treatment and a quick bath in the river !

If your sister has many children, offer her movies night out, night while you will keep the children’s (this way you will also be able to spoil them to !).

If you have kids, you can frame a family portrait in a nice framework; this will please her for sure.

At some occasion (but not all the occasion), you can offer her some bath product (bubble bath, fizzing balls, body lotions…)

If you really know her taste, you can go for jewelleries, like a nice pair of earrings.

It’s your sister, get loose !

Ideas of books for kids

It is a nice idea to offer a book to a child.

Young kids often pass to much time in front of their television or computer. Books are a way to offer them some time to relax and be calm, for example before going to bed or before supper time. In some other way, books are a way to open up to our world.

There are a lot of books for kids that are well illustrated and easy to read or to read.

So here are some ideas of books for kids :

  • Un million, c’est grand comment ?
  • Pousse, tourne, compte, et trouve les compagnons de Petit Pingouin
  • Les contes de fées illustrés
  • L’album phosphorescent de l’espace
  • L’album phosphorescent de l’océan
  • Fenêtre sur le corps humain
  • Fenêtre sur la planète Terre
  • Mon grand monde des animaux
  • Mon grand monde des dinosaures

Why not take the habit to read a good story each night before going to sleep ? And at the same time, you help your kid to develop his own taste towards literature.

Have a good time!
