the grandparent gift company giveaway


Today's giveaway is for a "Grandma's Smile - Love Frame"
from The Grandparent Gift co. {ARV$23.99}
Open to Continental US
Grandmothers are so sweet and so is this frame! Here's more info:
"Holds special 4x6 photograph. For wall or tabletop display. Reads:
Grandma's Smile, your smile and all it means is what I love the most."

T he Grandparent Gift Company is just such a heartfelt shop. This description makes absolute sense upon finding out that the company began in the mid 1990s, when founder Teri Harrison moved an audience to tears with her first poem, Grandma's Heart. All the products contain meaning, and serve as ways through which family members can keep accurate record of various life milestones. From a way to preserve the moment you first saw your baby through an ultrasound, to honoring a loved one's memory through means of an engraved picture frame, The Grandparent Gift Company has it all. Overall, I found their products, such as the Grandparents' Memory Book and the Generations Family Picture Frame, to be lasting, memorable, and solid representations of a family's history and bond.

"I got the chance to review the Grandma's Smile-Love Frame and my first impression of it was that it was so much larger then I was expecting! I know, I'm horrible and never look at the details, but it made for a very nice surprise when I got it! It is a beautiful frame; the coloring and the words make for an exceptional piece. It's a very personal and heartfelt gift. I can't wait to get a picture of me and my grandma in it! I know she's going to love it! (I'll have the picture of it up as soon as I find a picture to put in the frame)" -Katie

Here are two of my top picks from the store:

a. The Godmother Mirror {ARV$19.99} from the Mirror Stories collection caught my eye for one main reason --Godmothers are wonderful women. I understand that not everyone has a Godmother but I do and she's just an amazingly radiant person. Moreover, I love the following item description: A heart-shaped engraved mirror accompanied by a story and letter about why she was chosen to play a special role in the life of a child. It is a story and a letter ..a heartfelt reflection on life and love. The message is, "Carry this mirror with you and when you see your reflection, remember how much I love you." A Godmother is supposed to serve as a inspirational guide ( a "soul' mother if you will) and this would make for a lovely token of appreciation come Mother's Day. Actually, the Mirror Stories collection features items for mothers, sisters, friends, grandmothers, etc. It's worth taking a look!


b. The Birthday Letter Box {ARV $9.99} is just wonderful! It's a white paper linen box with a scrumptious cupcake printed on the front and a cute bow tied to one side. Personally, I like this item not only because it is well-priced but because I save many of my birthday cards. When someone takes the time to express kind thoughts and wishes to me, I save their cards/letters. It's tough to toss out such meaningful memories, and what better way to hold onto them than in this darling keepsake box. This is a fantastic gift idea for anyone who values organization and small gestures!
