Father's Day Gift Ideas for Nursing Home Residents

I work in a nursing home, and I'm in charge of Father's Day gifts this year (for 20 men). I was thinking of gift bags of some sort, but not sure. Any suggestions?

How about a "Father's Day Party" with party favors that are inexpensive toys of their generation: snap caps, bubbles, yo-yo, Chinese handcuffs (they go on both fingers), those paddles with a plastic ball on a string attached to them, marbles, jacks, etc.) It will bring up their own childhood memories, smile.

Gift bags with sample size products a man can use, shaving cream, disposable razors, bar soap, shampoo, etc.

Gifts are nice, but most folks in nursing homes are very lonely. How about arranging a special dinner and arranging for family members to visit?

What about a movie night theme?

Give each resident a movie ticket.

Find a suitable dvd for them to watch. Add popcorn a drink, some movie theater candy, etc.

I don't know your budget or your rules, but I don't know a man on this planet who doesn't enjoy an ice cold beer! Second idea, ask each of them what their favorite food is and combine all the answers in a wonderful homecooked meal!

In regard to the first comment. I know a lot of men that would NOT enjoy a beer. We don't drink and neither do our friends, so that is a totally inappropriate suggestion. Also, recovering alcoholics would not appreciate it either.

Last year money was tight, so instead of buying a fathers day gift for my hubby, I printed off 'certificates', from the children. Some were promises from the children; clean out the rabbit cage, wash the car, from me I gave him 'me make a meal of your choosing'... the list is endless. We even had one for the children to be quiet whilst he enjoyed a whole episode of his favourite programme in peace!
