  • Maybe a picture that you know would mean a lot to him. Blow it up and put it in a nice frame. Pictures are the BEST gift I think!!

  • Maybe find a picture from his childhood and restore it, blow it up and frame it.....I did this for my grandmother and it brought her to tears (happy tears)

  • I like homemade gifts - maybe a picture collage of stuff you know means a lot, how about a monogrammed money clip for Mr. Moneybags? ha ha

  • I agree - a picture (of him and your family, framed) or homemade goodies.

  • I would first think about things that the person really liked. When my Father was at that stage, it got exceedingly tough to get him any kind of gift! Two things he liked the most: Ice cream and eating out. So, I started out by getting him a really good quality counter top ice cream maker. My step Mom at the time had no clue and no recipes - so I made sure I included the two recipes for the kinds I knew Dad liked the best. Then, I would alternate between new recipes and gift cards for the restaurants I knew they liked the best.
    My Father-in-Law proved to be just as challenging, especially in his later years. He, too, loved to eat out, but as he got older and had to give up driving - he couldn't just choose to go out and eat whenever. It actually turned out to be a good thing as we knew that eating out was something he enjoyed, so anytime we were going out, we simply invited him along. His joy? Priceless!

  • Home made coupons for things like your time and your love. Sometimes people who seem to have everything are lonely.
