My parents are doing alright but stopped doing birthdays for the adults. Grandkids get cut off at 18.
More power to them, but I haven't gotten to that spot, yet. Gifts here, gifts there, gifts everywhere! I still buy for my parents who are in their 80s. Last Christmas, I gave them a towel warmer for their bathroom, and this year, I'm giving them this HEPA air cleaner. Hopefully, it will give them a little extra peace of mind about family coming and going over there during COVID and flu season. Plus, it may help with their allergies a bit.
Then, a few little goodies in their Christmas stockings. Just cause you're older doesn't mean you don't like to have fun getting gifts! (IMO) A couple of years ago, I gave them a gift card to their favorite steak restaurant along with a puzzle made from a map of their hometown, which they loved. Besides, I never know when it will be my last Christmas with them. They always made Christmas special for me as a kid, so I like to do for them.
Here's a link to the custom map puzzles. They're only $40 and a unique gift.https://www.walmart.com/ip/Personalized-My-Hometown-Map-Jigsaw-Puzzle/720147922
My dad's 84th birthday is about three weeks away. I ordered a pullover for him that has his Scottish clan name and logo on the front. Looks cozy and comfortable. Hope it gets here in time!
