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.
