Evening. I am stuck! Done nearly all the present shopping (thank God for Amazon and Tiger!) but have absolutely no idea what to get our parents. We've done the hampers, wine, homemade presents, photos, theatre tickets, books, clothes etc in the past. Have completely run out of ideas or Dad is dreadful at just making piles of things to wear/read/listen to/watch but never gets round to want to avoid adding to that pile....anyone got any bright ideas?? Thanks!

Two years ago to Gleneagles for dinner, last year it was champagne tea and visit to Britannia, this year we have bought them two nights in a hotel

The IL's live in Scotland we are in Wiltshire, so the can use it to break the journey when they come to see us.

(Well if they bother, in 16 years they have been twice)

My Dad, who is 85 and very frail now, I have bought some audio books (eyesight going) and some foodie bits to try and tempt him to eat.

all great suggestions - thank you. They are a fair bit away from us, so a hotel night would be a great idea. And the magazine subscription too. Thanks!
