Here’s what to buy when it’s the thought that counts.
Elderly people have seen many Christmases and received many Christmas gifts. So how do you pick a present that stands out? Well, it really is the thought that counts. Candles, chocolates and books might seem like mundane gifts, but they can be perfect if you make them personal. Try finding their favourite boutique chocolates, a designer-scented candle or a hardcover classic novel.
Here are some fantastically thoughtful presents for the retiree or grandparent in your life.
