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.

About My Grandmother and About My Grandfather 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 that is created.
