We traditionally hold showers for new brides and grooms and expecting parents, so why not grandparents?
That's exactly what Kathryn and Allan Zullo suggest in their book "The Nanas and the Papas: A Boomers' Guide to Grandparenting."
Be a trendsetter, say the Zullos, and host a shower for expectant grandparents. Gifts might include:
toys to start a grandparent's collection.
picture frame and album.
safety kit that includes electrical outlet covers and safety latches.
books for the children, and how-to books for grandparents.
child's eating utensils and unbreakable plates.
