I know I have grandparents visiting my site. I love the comments and messages I receive from these engaged grandmas who are using my craft and activity ideas. It warms my heart to hear of grandparents who are so involved with their kids and who are out there seeking out fun ways to interact with the little ones they love. For those grandparents here today, I want to show you the best Christmas gift for parents with small kids. My in-laws gave this gift to us last year, and it was such a generous and thoughtful gift to receive.
You’ll see all the components of the gift pictured above, and my in-laws were obviously extremely generous. You can adjust the amounts or what is given based on your own specific budget. We loved receiving this gift last Christmas, but I think this would be a really great baby shower, anniversary or birthday gift as well.
Best Christmas Gift for Parents with Small Kids
What is the best Christmas gift for parents with small kids? A date night. If you have been with me recently, you know I’ve included marriage tips at Meaningful Mama. Building into your marriage, after all, is an important component to being an effective parent. Healthy marriages breed healthy kids. It’s not a guarantee, of course, and I in no way believe single parents can’t do a great job raising healthy kids. That said, if you take the time to build into your marriage, I believe your children will be better off in the future. Having grandparents that promote the family unit by providing date nights through childcare and financial support is amazing. Here is what was included in our gift:
- Movie Tickets
- Starbucks Gift Cards
- Cash for Dinner
- Cold Stone Gift Card
- Childcare Coupon
We were delighted to be able to go on a fabulous date night (OK…we may have turned it into a few date nights). For your adult children to be encouraged and supported in their marriage pursuits in invaluable. We love our kids, but we love time away from our kids too. This kind of gift makes it happen.
