At Tessera, we think grandparents love the time spent creating memories with family more than a trinket or the latest gadget. So why not give them the gift of memories preserved?

Perfect for all occasions, our gift guide is filled with thoughtful Kids Journals and beautiful Memory Books that Grandma and Grandpa are sure to love.

Grandma, Tell Me About You! and Grandpa, Tell Me About You! Kids Journals

Give grandma or grandpa the gift of time spent together! These Kids Journals are designed as an activity for the child and grandparent to complete together. The simple prompts and fill-in-the-blanks provide a fun guide for the grandparent and grandchild to talk about and fill out the details of grandma or grandpa’s life. Blank space on the back of each page provides extra room for photos and drawings. A sticker sheet adds to the fun! Grandparents will love the quality time spent with their grandchildren as well as the keepsake they create.

I Love You Grandma and I Love You Grandpa Kids Journals

“I love you!” What Grandparent doesn’t love to hear that? Our I Love You Grandma and I Love You Grandpa Kids Journals make a great gift for a child to give to their grandparent on Grandparent’s Day, a birthday, for Christmas, or just because. Kids can record all the ways their grandma or grandpa is special to them with the prompted pages and fill-in-the-blanks. All of our Kids Journals come with pages printed on only one side, so there is plenty of space for drawings and photos. A themed sticker sheet adds to the sentiment and the fun. Grandparents will cherish these activities-turned-keepsakes forever!
