Happy Valentines Gifts Ideas for the Sandwich Generation family from the elderly senior parents on down to the cute little grandkids

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s definitely time to make sure we have our Valentines ready for our Sandwich Generation family. I just mailed off some kids’ fun and easy crafts and activities Valentine cards for my long distance grand kids that I found at Walmart and Dollar Tree. I’m thinking my compadre seniors-in-law might have fun helping the grandkids work on them.

I admit, I also enjoy cute SMALL goodies to go with the cards. For the kids, I do avoid candies, preferring something like the fun and small Webkinz stuffed animals I also sent off earlier, thanks to the great deals on Amazon. It’s perfect timing for them to update their account for another year!

For older grandkids and their parents, I love to give “HUGS” via thick towels I find on sale, cozy fleece or Sherpa throws and blankets, or encouraging and interesting books. My sweet seniors love all the Karen Kingsbury Christian novels.

For the younger grandkids, another fun and inexpensive non-edible treat is one of the Happy Meal Toys from McDonalds. Unlike some other restaurant fast food chains, McDonald’s is wonderful about letting you buy the toys WITHOUT buying the Happy Meals – making them a great treat for all grandkids, including those dealing with food allergies and intolerance symptoms. Right now, they have some uber cool Hot Wheels cars my grandboys are loving, along with some girly toys (Barbie I think?) for the grandgirls.

For those who do prefer the traditional candy, I gotta tell you, I am currently hooked on Lindt Lindor Chocolate Truffles. Oh…my…delicious….gracious!!!! They are so tasty! When the Sandwich Generation juggle starts getting on my nerves, lots of prayer and a couple of those tasty treats are a GREAT RX! 🙂

Well, that’s my main Valentine’s Day shopping list. What’s yours? We’re always up for more fun and creative gifts ideas for our Sandwich Generation family members – from grand kids to the beloved elderly seniors!  🙂
