Father's Day is coming up on June 20 in 2021, which means it's time to buckle down in search of the perfect gift not only for dad, but for grandpa as well. The grandparent-grandchild bond is special and unique—it's a relationship that's important to celebrate on this sentimental day.
The holiday is a time to thank your dad for being there for both you and your kid(s): playing babysitter so you and your partner could have a date night, showing up to their activities, picking them up after school, and even more so, being your biggest emotional support system. Recognizing grandpa on Father's Day is a nice nod to all the above, and serves as a little reminder that they're appreciated.
