My grandfather turns 80 this week and I have no idea what to get him. His health is poor, so travel is out of the question. His vision is poor and he has no interest in most electronics.
He recently was hospitalized and since getting out, he has lost interest in virtually everything.
About a year ago he "discovered" CDs and has gotten a variety of music related gifts, but since getting out of the hospital he shows no interest in this.
He has outlived most of his friends, so I worry that some sort of memory book or video would be a reminder of those who aren't there.
He isn't currently living at home and there is some question of whether he will be able to go home again. This pretty much rules out any cool house toys.
A visit from me isn't an option right now.
I have no ideas at this point, and would appreciate any good suggestions.
