Celebrated each year on the first Sunday of September after Labor Day, Grandparents Day is being recognized on Sept. 11 this year, and there are many different ways to show your appreciation.
Take a walk together through your favorite park, for example, or cook a meal with your grandparents using a treasured family recipe. You can also show your love by making a celebratory dance video with your family and friends and sharing it on social media using the hashtag #DoSomethingGrand! (1)
Of course, not all grandmas and grandpas are social media savvy, so you may want to try writing a heartfelt note or letter telling them just how much you love and appreciate them instead. It may sound a little old-fashioned but taking the time to sit down and write out your feelings can make a grand impact!
For this special task, we recommend using the #TWPG Pivo® Gold Pen! A member of our Classic Collection family of writing instruments, this sleek, twist-action retractable pen features gold-plated trim and, much like grandparents themselves, has a long history of being awesome!
Fun Fact: There are many benefits to writing a letter. In fact, doing so can ease feelings of loneliness and isolation, strengthen friendships and family bonds, and create joy for both the sender and the receiver. (2)
