Your children may be a little old to traipse around toy stores and have may grown out of drawing pretty pictures a long time ago. So, how do you get older children and teenagers involved in a Christmas present for their Gran? A great (and hassle-free) option is to choose a really special Christmas gift for her that they can engrave their own message on. A range of options are available here. Popular choices include jewellery boxes, trinket boxes (Nan’s love trinkets!), compact mirrors and cosmetic sets.
Arrange a family photo shoot
Whilst this idea may fill most teenagers with dread, their grandmother will absolutely love displaying new and recent photos of the family. If you choose a company and studio that offer something a bit different, you may actually be able to get the kids on board. It doesn’t have to be all suits and ‘sit-up straights’. Companies like Venture Photography offer a more modern and unique photo shoot that will showcase the family’s personality, rather than showing you all looking a bit stiff and miserable.
