Do you have a difficult time thinking of creative ideas for gifts for teens and twenty-somethings? Grandpa had a great idea this year for Christmas presents for his grandkids. Since he's a "snowbird" and heads for Arizona right after Thanksgiving, he presented his Christmas gifts early. His gifts were thoughtful, well-received, and fun! He spent time well in advance, preparing them. Each grandchild was given a United States collectible quarter holder and a container of quarters. The containers held at least one quarter from each of the fifty states. There was much activity around the table as everyone worked to find the appropriate quarters and put them in their proper place. Before long, each set was properly matched in each book and each grandchild went home with a state quarter collection lovingly collected by Grandpa over the years. Evidently the bank tellers at Grandpa's bank were also enthusiastic about his project! He was missing quarters from Hawaii. He thought they would be missing until the grandkids could find them later, but when he walked into the bank the day before his presentation, a teller called over to him --- "I got them"! She was nearly as happy as he was about those quarters! For the grandkids, it was a Christmas gift that was meaningful, fun, and interactive. Simple joy --- a thoughtful gift. Thank you, Grandpa!
