Make sure you stock it with photos of the family. Starting around $45.

An outing with the family
Make a coupon for a day trip with the family — maybe a museum, the zoo or a hike in the park. You should go along too so the grands can enjoy the trip and not have to do any parenting. Price varies.


Gifts for parents and inlaws

Videos box sets of TV classics from way back when

Donations in their name

Check out gourmet treats from places like Harry & David or think steaks from Omaha Steaks. Put together a coffee/tea basket of your own with a bag of fresh ground coffee or fancy tea, cute mugs and biscotti or biskets to go with.
