What do you buy someone who has every knick knack under the sun?
Taking out for a meal/tea/experience is not an option.

  • Personal photo gifts like a blanket

  • Her favourite perfume.

  • handmade gifts are always loved, if you have a little one, drawings are great, or photos of yourself and family are wonderful

  • A professional family portrait or a family photo album.

  • Just bought my grandmother a great pair of non slip emu slippers or she raves about the heated throw rug we got her a few years ago

  • Try a Hand made card and written letter. Even write a short story or memory together. Gifts are about being personal at this age. And probably fine not to get the gift part if there’s nothing that you can think of. I make the assumption Stuff doesn’t matter so much when you’re older

  • It would depend what they are into. I think a personally made hamper of their favourite things would be nice or a “voucher” to do something together, perhaps high tea?

  • I think a family photo book makes a lovely gift, especially for elderly loved ones.

  • I suppose it also depends on where she is living – at home or in a nursing home. A potted plant if she likes gardening; maybe a knee rug for chilly mornings and evenings; a box of her favourite chocolates or sweets. Probably a visit would be appreciated with maybe a delicious afternoon tea organised for her. Company is always appreciated.

  • A wine or champagne gift set or hamper

  • I suggest a photo book with full page size photos. Not too many but ones that bring back her own memories of early day, not just her grandkids. Also a ‘tape’ of her favourite song. That would likely be music of the 20′ to 40’s because music is associated with memories.

  • All they want is to spend sometime with there family and talking to them about memories of years gone by

  • a nice soft warm scarf, rug if at home to keep warm during the coming winter months.

  • If she is or was a gardener, you could get her an indoor plant or a special standard rose to grow:)

  • A subscription to something: a magazine, a streaming channel, a monthly gift box, audio books.
