Moms with Adult Kids Moms with Adult Kids

I need some suggestions on what to buy my parents for Christmas. They don't really need anything, my dad is disabled and on a special diet, my mom doesn't do much of anything outside of being a caregiver.

Suggestions?

I don't want to give them gift cards for their favorite restaurant because they get those of 3 other people each year.

I don't think you do,
Just find that *in put* button on the tv remote.
Our netflix has nothing to do with a game system .. check it out :)

Quoting homeskoolmama:

You need a computer or game system to have Netflix, she doesn't have access for either. She used to get Blockbuster by mail but she stopped it. Maybe I could get her the Netflix by mail.

Quoting hugss:

How a bout a subscription to Netflix?  Then they can pick out there own movies :)

Netflix has two options,
the one instant watch where yes you need something.
the other is where they mail/send you the dvd's :)

 How old are your parents? Do they collect anything? What are their interests?

How about a "deep cleaning" by a house cleaning service?

How about getting a nice family portrait done? Put it in a nice frame and offer to help hang it up. Or maybe a photo book made with all the fmily photos. You can make them pretty much anywhere like walgreens, walmart etc but the best ones I found were at Mpix. That is something they will both treasure.
