I need a gift for my husband's great aunt. She will be visiting this year for the holidays. She doesn't eat sweets and I don't really know much about her. What is a good gift for an elderly woman?

A great gift would be a lap blanket or a shawl to put around the shoulders.

For the elderly aunt, if she likes to read, get her a book in large size print. Or if her eyesight is bad or she prefers not to read, an audiobook would be nice. Do you keep in touch with her on a regular basis? If so, how about stationery with a book of stamps included or a phone card so she can call you without worrying about the cost

Homemade canned goods (fruits, vegetables, etc.) with a pretty material topper (check, lace) seem to go over well. Useful and decorative at the same time. Also pretty frames with family pictures.

If she has friends/relatives living out of state, a prepaid phone card would make a nice gift. I give books of stamps (especially the ones for Breast Cancer Research).

How about some nice scented candles? Who wouldn't like the aroma? I make them myself which adds a little more sentiment!

A pair of warm gloves or a warm scarf would be nice as a winter gift. Older people quite often feel cold.

What about knitting or having someone knit her a shawl, or slippers or a small afghan she can use to cover her lap/legs

while watching TV. Or perhaps a frame and take a picture of her with your family during the holidays to put in the frame, which she will be able to take back with her to remember her visit.

Does she like parakeets? Check out this website for the cutest little "pet" parakeets ever. They are plastic, but very lifelike and lots of fun. I am going to give one to my next door neighbor who is 94! They have other birds too. http://www.back  Cat&catId=69
