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?

To many of our senior citizens, things like stationary, STAMPS, and neat pens are a luxury. You could put them in a basket. Gift certificates for a store around her home. If she is a member of your family, how about a family picture of you.

These are just a few suggestions that I have used.

My boyfriend just recently met my Grandmother. We were driving on the way to see my Aunt and when we stopped at a local gas station for drinks, he purchased a couple of lottery tickets and gave them to her. She was thrilled!


Living on a severe budget she doesn't buy frivolous things like lottery tickets. If she doesn't have an aversion to a little gambling, it might put a little spark in her smile.

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
