Each tin has a total of 9 different snack items and 6 gourmet cookies. We place bubble wrap on the bottom of every tin to help in protecting the food items and ensuring a safe arrival. The impetus for a National Grandparents Day originated with Marian McQuade, a housewife in Fayette County, West Virginia. Her primary motivation was to champion the cause of lonely elderly in nursing homes. She also hoped to persuade grandchildren to tap the wisdom and heritage their grandparents could provide. President Jimmy Carter, in 1978, proclaimed that National Grandparents Day would be celebrated every year on the first Sunday after Labor Day. Let Grandma and Grandpa know how much you care by sending them a wonderfully scrumptious Cookie Garden Cookie Bouquet!
