I need Christmas presents for 3 ladies in their 70's and one in her sixties. The three presents need to be postable. None of the ladies know each other so I could buy all the same things. Smellies and chocolates are too predictable and boring.

How much do you want to spend?

Scarf or gloves (or both)?
A nice purse or a compact?

£15 upwards.

I have considered gloves but I know I am fussy about mine so wouldn't want to buy some that are not needed.

I bought one of them a scarf last year.

Same with a purse as gloves.

It is really hard!

I've done a hand bag filled with handbag essentials for a lady in 70s

What about a nice silver picture frame? That would probably post ok?

Do they like gardening?

A small gift hamper with a selection of breakfast preserves? or cheese and biscuit selection, or teas and a nice dundee cake?

They could deliver it straight to them.

My nan was always happy with a bottle of Teachers and a poinsettia. grin

These look truly delicious, you don't have to trail round the shops, it comes in a nice package and delivered direct. Simples!

I bought nice teas and jams last year as well but thinking about it does it really matter if they get something similar?

Going to look at the hampers now. I love Lakeland.

I posted the wrong link, Lakeland the homeward company also do hampers. This is a company up in the Lakes.

M&S do nice ones too.

You could change the theme, I think I saw a high tea one somewhere.
