Treats, gift ideas for lolo and lola on Grandparents' Day

This pandemic is very challenging for everyone -- including the elderlies, whose leisure activities have been stalled by the quarantine, and whose health are put at higher risk.

So for Grandparents' Day this year, treat your lolo and lola with something fun and extra that they will cherish despite the troubled times.

Here are some gift suggestions from the City of Firsts:

1. Vintage items

Take your lolo and lola down memory lane by giving them precious items from vintage shops at the Ali X, the home of antique finds in Ali Mall! 

Ali X

Whether they're old coins, posters, vinyl records, postcards, stamps, etc., these cool collectors' items will surely make them emotional and extra grateful.

For your shopping convenience, select Ali X stores will be part of the Grand Bazaar at Ali Mall Activity Area from September 10 to 12 (as part of Araneta City's Grandparent's Day celebration). Score great deals and buy the best surprise for lolo and lola! Check out more details here.

2. Healthy food and drinks

Occasions like this are best celebrated with great food. But your seniors at home might have some dietary restrictions by now. So give them something that will satisfy their tummy and still give them the nutrition they need during this health crisis.

3. Health monitoring tools

The health of senior citizens during these challenging times should be every families' priority. Equip your household with a standby health monitoring kit. And if possible, dedicate a separate supply kit for the elderlies which they themselves can access and use.
