What Do You Give a 102 Year Old Grandma?!

Every Christmas for the last 8 or so years, my present to my Grandma has been a box full of handmade Birthday cards, one for every member of the family--stuffed in envies, labeled with names and placed in in calendar order.  


Every Christmas for the last 8 or so years, my present to my Grandma has been a box full of handmade Birthday cards, one for every member of the family--stuffed in envies, labeled with names and placed in calendar order.

Seeing as she is 102 years old, there isn't much that I can buy for her.  She can't read or sew or do her puzzles any more because of macular degeneration in hr eyes.  She has no interest in TV because her hearing is so bad, so no DVDs or even family movies.  She doesn't get out of the house much--gets tired from the house to the car, so gift certificates for restaurants are out.

But the first year I made her cards, she loved them, and has wanted them since.  I think if I got her something else, she'd miss them!  I had to make a few more this year, after my son went and got married to a woman with four children.  I love them all to pieces and couldn't be happier with his soulmate.  But that's five more cards to make!  Lucky I have a little bit of a stash of cards to pick from, huh?!

Wonderful cards!! And such a great idea for a gift. You wouldn't need to be 102 to absolutely LOVE it!!!

What a great selection of cards, and what a fabulous gift. I especially like that you pre-address the envelopes and put them in a calendar for her. I have given cards as a gift before with envelopes and stamps, but never went that extra step!
