Shopping for our elderly loved ones can be a real challenge. It seems they already have everything. Here are several gift ideas to make shopping for grandparents fun!
A digital photo frame-Create a digital album of their favorite photos of family members and special occasions. It will automatically scroll though hundreds of pictures bringing back generations of memories.
A Web cam-Consider giving Grandma and Grandpa a web cam and downloading Skype on their home computer. But make sure they know how to use it. They will love being able to talk to their grand kids face to face with the touch of a button.
A Classic TV Show-Many classic shows are available as boxed DVD sets. Let Grandma and Grandma relive their favorite shows from the past.
Photo Gifts-Personalized plates, cups or even a woven throw blanket with cherished family photos make great gifts. Putting a family photo on Grandma or Grandpa's coffee mug is sure to brighten their mornings.
Entertainment-Buy movie/theatre tickets or gift certificates to their favorite restaurant. Social outings are great exercise, mind stimulating and fun.
Shop early, but remember-Grandma and Grandpa will love anything if it's from their grand kids. Happy holidays!
