Finding a meaningful, useful gift can be a challenge. This guide is about gift ideas for a senior woman.
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?

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.backyardbirdsandgardens. ... t/index.php?act=viewCat&catId=69
