One gift left to get ... Inspire me! Elderly "aunt"

(11 Posts)

We have a lady (80s) who is like a great aunt to the dc, who will be with us on Christmas Day. She is lovely, and is usually spot on with her gifts to the kids.

She is widowed, is very intelligent, (has lived in various parts of the world) and very kind.

I am stumped what to get her! She loves her iPad, gets out and about.

Any suggestions for around £20 ish? Have access to most main high St shops tomorrow ....

Some lovely hand soap & lotion from the white company?

Like the White Co suggestion ....

I would agree with White Company suggestion too. She probably has all the stuff she needs by now.

She would probably like a little calendar of your children too.

Jar of fruits in alcohol
Calendar
Magazine subscription - my elderly aunt likes countryfile

Book about somewhere linked to her life

Does she have a kindle? Amazon vouchers also nice in that case
