A Golden Christmas

Oct 28, 2007
Good tidings for Christmas are what all of us wish. Blessings like your rich friends who can afford to give you designer bags can make you think that you have everything you ever wanted. Things like computers, malls, money and more tend to cloud our vision and make us forget the real meaning of Christmas.

You see, the Christmas holidays does not only mean taking a breather from the busy life of the city and going on full indulgence of a much needed vacation but it also means spending more time with your family. And family does not only include our parents or our close relatives but also our grandparents. It seems like everyone keeps on forgetting about them. So this Christmas, why don't you get up and pay them a visit? And while you are at it, check on these gift ideas that you can bring for them.

For Grandpa

Giving grandpa some new clothes would be nice. A nice pique polo shirt in all available colors is one good idea for a gift, especially if grandpa is fond of playing golf.

If he likes to play chess, a brand-new chessboard is the perfect gift then. He will be especially happy if he wins a game of chess against you. Or at least you could try to learn the game for him.

If he likes to just sit and get busy with crossword puzzles, then giving him a book full of crossword puzzles is a nice gift to give. You could even help him solve all of them puzzles.

For Grandma

A bouquet of flowers will surely make her feel years younger again. Double check if she is allergic to certain kinds of flowers before buying a bouquet.

You could always give grandma a knitting kit complete with all the essential materials that she will use when knitting.

Clothes for grandma are also nice gift ideas. Girls will always be girls and dresses in bright and sunny colors will brighten up everyone else's mood, especially if the one wearing is happy and comfortable in it.

For both

You can give them a photo album with all the family's memories back when you were young or better yet, back when both of them were still lovers. That would be the sweetest gift.

Setting up a dinner date for two is perfect complete with classical live songs that they could dance to. They absolutely will have one heck of a Christmas.

Just remember the important thing is that you are keeping them company. At their age, they could feel down and depressed because they feel left out. Recall that you are a busy person which means that you don't get to spend much time with them. This is your chance. Take advantage. If life is short, then life is shorter for them. Make them feel that they are remembered and loved even for a short while this Holiday season. And after that, you can go back to your fast-paced life, not to mention, your rich friends.
