100th Birthday Gift Ideas

A woman where I live is turning 100 years old. She doesn't need gifts really or money. I would like to take some thing unique to give to her for her birthday. I don't know her well at all. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Can you crochet or knit?

Perhaps you could make her a lap throw or shawl.

Of a fleece lap throw.

Give her a gift of a manicure. The light hand massage always feels wonderful to athritic hands! It's probably something she never has done anymore.

I work at a retirement living facility and we have a resident turning 100 and we will have two cakes. One will have 100 candles on it and I contacted the local fire department to have a few firemen in their turnouts here along with the fire chief to light the candles.

To Mike:

You didn't mention male or female. I don't have an idea for a male, but at the party I went to they had a singer from the Ink Spots sing love songs to the woman. At 100 years old, she really enjoyed it. It was a special day for her.

How about a coin from the year of their birth ?

There are some available that are not to expensive and a nice keepsake.

We are combining a family reunion with a celebration of my aunt's 100th birthday. Each family member is challenged to come up with a small gift of 100 of some item, such as 100 buttons, 100 pennies, etc. Since all of the above ideas have been taken, I'm looking for something unique that I can present. Any ideas?

How about 100 hours of your time to spend recording her life via a camera and just asking her questions, finding out her history as she saw it. 100 years will surely have a lot of memories to pass on. Bless her and her dear family to take all this time to make this so special! Don't forget to notify the White House, they will send her a special card!

I'm with Deeli. Go with fresh flowers for a special lady. If she has nowhere to put them after the party, donate them to a nursing home. If she lives in a nursing home, take them there so they can liven up the entire place! I can't imagine the stories she could tell!

Hi, please be sure to give your aunt birthday wishes from your TF family! While you're contacting the White House, you might also consider your local newspaper and/or television or radio station. (I'd contact all three.) They may want to do a story. As for the 100 items, if they don't have to be actual, physical objects. How about 100 kisses or hugs, or both? For something tangible and practical. 100 sheets of stationery to go with the 100 stamps?

How about 100 old postage stamps, the commemorative kind which are issue each year to commemorate something, like the year a state entered the union, a person, an event, etc. You could get one for each year of her life since she was born. Old, canceled stamps are usually available in bulk for low prices. Also; 100 coins, 100 homemade cookies, 100 personal notes or letters from family & friends, & 100 photos of family & friends.
