Gift ideas for w/c bound mom?

I'm a Secret Santa to a family with a paraplegic mom in a wheelchair with kids aged 2-6. I can "do" the kids okay, but do you have any suggestions for mom?

  • The ladies all have some great ideas, but personally, I'd buy something just for her~ some nice sachets, pretty hankies, nice smelling hand lotion and a manicure set come to mind. Good luck and Merry Christmas!

  • Great smelling body lotion...I used to care for a woman in a wheel chair and she loved to smell good so at christmas she loved a variety of lotions. Also what is nice are stained glass window hangings.
