How many generations of your family are alive? It is likely that there are at least three generations in your family, but due to science and medicine that number could be higher. More generations in your family makes it possible for senior family members to meet and possibly get to know the newest family members.
It is important to remember that even though more seniors are living longer than they ever have in the past that does not necessarily mean that they will be in good health. There are many seniors who may have a difficult time traveling or are confined to a nursing home. This may make it difficult or virtually impossible for your grandparents to see and spend quality time with your children. There is nothing better then actually being able to see, talk to, and hold your grandchildren, but there is something that comes in a close second.
Photo pillows are a way that many grandparents are able to connect with a grandchild or great-grandchild. A photo pillow is created by taking a traditional black and white or color photograph and constructing it onto a pillow. Since it is not uncommon for many seniors to rest, read a book, or watch television it is likely that a photo pillow will come in handy. What can be better than offering a family connection and comfort all at once?
The easiest way to purchase a customized photo pillow is by finding an online photo pillow designer. Once you have found one or multiple designers to closely examine you will want to look at the photo pillow products that they have to offer. Many of the companies or individuals who make photo pillows have a selection of different pillow styles and designs. A small sofa-size pillow and a larger bed size pillow are common pillow sizes that can be transformed into a personalized photo pillow. It is likely that a grandparent would prefer any size photo pillow; however, the smaller sofa-size one tends to be the most popular.
Perhaps the best thing about photo pillows is that they can work in just about any room setting and they can be transported if need be. A photo pillow is a great gift idea for grandparents, but it is not the only photo gift idea available. There are many children or grandchildren who have purchased photo blankets or even both for their grandparents. Regardless of what photo items is purchased it is sure to be a hit with the grandparents them.
