What Do You Get a 83 Year Old Woman for Christmas?

It's just a simple question, with such a complex answer. I was planning on making my Grandmother a calendar with pictures of my Breezy in it, but I couldn't find a theme that I particularly liked. So, I gave that up. Now, I have no idea what to get her. I am a perfectionist when it comes to gift giving. I like WOW-ing people. I like giving something out of the norm. Something different. Something that they have never been given before. So naturally, when I try to practice my OCD gift giving tactics on a 83 year old woman, I'm going to run into some road blocks. She's 83 years old. That's 83 Christmases! She has been given pretty much everything in every category!

I need your help...What can I get my 83 year old Grandmother for Christmas?

I am open to any and all suggestions!

my favorite all time gift to give to grandmothers or women who have everything are those potted amarillys bulbs to grow. I know I spelled it wrong but if you call around any flower shop, they will have them or grocery store. They are less than $10 here and beautiful. My girlfriend gave one to her grandmother a few years back and that lady kept getting her photo taken with it as it grew. She loved it! Good luck!

Maybe one of those plaster paris hand prints? If you made a big enough surface you could even put your hands with Bree's (like hers in the middle and one of yours on each side). Then you can paint it and decorate it how you want.

Hand prints from her granddaughter AND her great granddaughter is not only precious, but it's something she's definitely NEVER gotten before!

I had a problem with this one g-ma is 82 (I think) we got her a digital frame and uploaded a gazillion pictures! That way she doesn't have to wait for my parents to print them out for her.

That's what I did ( what working momma said) I get a digital frame for my grandparents each year and fill it full of pictures from throughout the year :)
