Christmas Messages for Grandparents

Assortment of Christmas Cards for Grandparents

Grandparents hold an extra-special place in our hearts. Whereas loving parents are typically stretched — for time, for money, for patience, for energy—grandparents can lavish these things on their grandchildren.

If you’re a young adult who is still enjoying your grandparents, lucky you! What a gift to have that generation to learn from and to love. They have time to listen to you and may offer feedback from a fresh perspective.

I lived with my grandma for a year and a half while attending college. That time under her roof helped me get to know and appreciate her on a whole new level than from when I was a child.

With the holidays approaching, now is the perfect time to connect with your grandparents. Whether they are near or far, send them a Christmas greeting cardto let them know they’re on your mind and on your heart.

Once you choose just the right holiday card, take a few moments to add your own message inside. We know that greeting cards already say what you want, but the simple act of writing a few heartfelt sentences can transform that piece of paper into a treasured keepsake. And isn’t that what every grandparent deserves?

Here are some ideas for What to Write in a Christmas Card to Your Grandparents:

  • I’m so lucky to have [incredible / wonderful / perfect / etc.] grandparents like you.
  • I think you did such an amazing job with our family!
  • Sending you love and warm wishes for a Christmas that’s as wonderful as you, Grandma [Grandpa].
  • Thank you for all you’ve done to make me the person I am today. I’m grateful for grandparents like you.
  • My heart will be missing you at Christmas. Can’t wait to see you again.
  • I don’t tell you often enough how proud I am to be your grandson/granddaughter.
  • The best gift you ever gave me was teaching me to [be kind / help others / finish what I started / etc.]
  • Someday, I hope to be as good of a grandma [grandpa] as you have been.
  • You are a big reason my childhood was so [special / magical / great / etc.]
  • I couldn’t imagine my world without you in it, Grandma [Grandpa].

Being remembered is a wonderfully gratifying feeling that’s appreciated at any age — but especially as we get older. We hope the ideas above have inspired you to write a special message and share a loving thought with a grandparent. Find more ideas for writing Christmas messages here.
