This one is set for pride-of-place above the mantlepiece.
A touching, bespoke poem about what it means to be a grandparent, and to have a grandparent that loves you with all their heart.
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.
The print comes unframed, and is presented smartly in cellophane with backing board behind.
The font choice is: dark blue, purple, deep red, pink, grey (all on white card) and black (on brown card).
For an additional fee, you are welcome to add a short message (max 8 words) at the bottom of the poem.
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.
The text reads:
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!
