With the holidays fast approaching, it can be difficult to know what to buy for the seniors that we love. Generally, more household items are not needed, in fact they are probably trying to get rid of stuff. Instead, try giving them items that are practical and add value to their lives:
Tim Horton Gift Cards with a hand written note saying you will join them once a month for coffee.
Swiss Chalet Gift Cards no cooking required, a gift we all love to get
Diabetic Socks – great for anyone with circulation troubles
Long Shoe Horn no more bending over to put on shoes
Magnifier makes that tiny print easier to see
Blank Cards give them a year supply of a selection of various occasion greeting cards, saves them going out to buy them
Snow Shovelling/Grass Cutting – pay for a service cover household chores. Gives peace of mind to all
Subscriptions pay for their annual magazine or newspaper subscription
Taxi Gift Card give them gift certificates to take taxis. May really come in handy on a snowy day
Hair Dressers Coupon inquire about gift certificates for the salon they frequent
We hope this will give you some ideas to show you care and happy holidays everyone.
