Our funny and heartfelt A4 grandparent print makes the perfect grandparent gift - whether it's for a birthday, christmas, mother's day, father's day or even for newly becoming a grandmother or grandfather!

The poem was written by award-winning Bespoke Verse poet Joanna Miller.

We would be happy to frame the print for you using one of our three wooden custom-made frames. We offer smooth flat white, stepped grained white or slim matt black.

What is a Grandparent ?

A hugger, a kisser, a grandchild misser

A laugher, a crafter, a fun looker-after

A trusted adviser, indulgent surpriser

A listening ear & a fair refereer

A carer, a sharer, a sometimes grey-hairer

A school gate collector, a ringer & texter

A crossword completer & roast dinner eater

A writer, delighter, a stay the nighter

A traveller, talker & leisurely walker

A best friend & mentor, a clever inventor

A ‘what-do-you-sayer?’ & board game player

A generous payer & photo displayer

A newspaper reader, an ‘oh yes indeeder’

A godsend to mother, a garden lover

A debater, relater, a cold weather hater

A picker-upper, a pop round for supper

A thinker, a winker, a cup of tea drinker

A mender, a sender, a coaxer & lender

A free taxi driver & slipper of fiver

A pleaser, a teaser, affectionate squeezer

That’s what makes a grandparent!
