What to Write in a Grandparents Day Card

There’s nothing quite like the bond between a grandparent and child.

Grandparents love, teach, encourage, and inspire.

Growing up, I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. They taught me so much and helped me become the woman I am today.

My grandma and I even used to write little cards and notes back and forth, and I’m so grateful we took the time to tell each other how much our relationship meant.

Grandparents Day offers us the amazing opportunity to do just that! It’s the perfect time to think about all the ways our grandparents have impacted our lives — and to celebrate and thank them for it!

We’ve put together a few thought-starters below to get you thinking about the relationship you have with your own grandparents and what you might want to express to them on Grandparents Day. (We’ve even included some ideas for what to say on a grandparent’s very first Grandparents Day!)

First, Here are a Few Questions to Help Get You Started...

  • What do you love most about your grandparent(s)?
  • What have they taught you?
  • What is your favorite memory you have of them?
  • What’s your favorite thing to do with them?
