Christmas Gift Ideas for Elderly Parents, Grandparents, Grandkids and Nurses

Gifts! Gifts! And more Gifts!

Christmas is coming up!

The Holidays hold special memories for many people. Whether it be spending time with family and loved ones, overeating at the family banquet or opening gifts under the tree – it’s a great time for all ages.

But before we get to the fun, there are the preparations first!

I’m sure many of you have already started on the gift shopping. It can often be a lot less fun (and sometime quite stressful) than receiving gifts. Everyone wants to give the perfect gift.

No stress – we thought we’d give you all a hand with some gift ideas for the people you love. And the best part is that you can purchase them all online (no busy shopping centres!)


Gifts for your Elderly Parents!

It can be hard buying gifts for the parents – especially when they’ve been getting gifts for decades and decades! How about these for some unique ideas?

How about something warm and snuggly? Minimink are an Australian based company that specialises in faux fur goods. They make blankets, hot water bottle covers and pillows.

Why not gift your parents a private dining experience at Intertain with a world-class private chef cooking in your home while you focus on entertaining your guests. We first thought this maybe an expensive option but then they have options starting from $30 per person for catering. I believe they can visit nursing homes too, if the family want a real treat!

Gifts for the Grandkids!

Sometimes the best gifts are ones you can’t wrap in paper. This year why not gift give them an experience that will stay with them forever! Adrenalin have some great offers. Click here to visit Adrenaline.


Gifts for that Nurse in your life!

If you are married, dating, family or even a friend of a nurse, then why not try one of these gifts?

Nurses have a unique sense of humour. This Christmas gift them a novelty mug or shirt that has quirky quote on it. Diverse Threads have some great career-based novelty goodies. Click here to visit Diverse Threads.

And if your nurse has a particularly twisted sense of humour, then gift them the game Cards Against Humanity. It’s known for being “party game for horrible people” (That’s what their website says!) Click here to visit Cards Against Humanity.
