It's my DH's Granny's 90th Birthday on Sunday and, surprise surprise, he hasn't bought a present. She's quite deaf, quite blind, fairly immobile, has been in hospital for the last couple of weeks and is only out of hospital for the day. Suggestions for a nice present are needed urgently. Can anyone help?

scaltygirls suggestion of something touchy-feely is good. How about a soft cardigan, or a lovely wrap to keep her warm.

Thanks both of you for your suggestions. Will have a trawl through good old M&S tomorrow lunchtime.

Bathsalts, perfume or a scented herb pillow? Particular type of sweets/tea/chocolate. Couple of crisp new nighties of a type she likes or a new dressing gown.

what about a luxurious hot water bottle?

An electric blanket? Older ladies love to get into a warm bed!

Christie, really lovely idea but it's on Sunday and I don't have time. I'm handing the task back to DH to deal with tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for suggestions.

a friend of mine bought a her elderly MIL a big furry dog from M&S - her MIL had said she missed having her dog around now she was in a home and my friend thought it was the perfect gift. She loved it.
