It seems every year we struggle with finding the perfect holiday gift for our family and friends. There are so many options-online, bricks and mortar, catalogues. In addition, trying to find a gift that someone will love and be able to use all year long can sometimes, well, be a little boring. We’ve created an Eldery Gift Guide to help you find the perfect holiday gifts that are both personal and practical.
A book is always a good choice for a holiday gift. Browsing through Amazon or visiting your local Barnes and Noble will generate many ideas on subject matter to purchase the perfect book. Is the person you are thinking of giving a gift to have a kindle or iBooks? No problem!You can send a gift card to allow that special someone to purchase a book of their choosing.
The Royal Family has been a fascinating news topic with the recent engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Prince William and Kate Middleton expecting their third child, Queen Elizabeth II becoming the first monarch to celebrate her sapphire jubilee (65 years on the throne), and the celebration of 70 years of marriage between Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II. The book, “My Husband and I” by Ingrid Seward, delves into the 70 year marriage of Philip and Elizabeth, and is definitely an interesting read into one of longest marriages of a public figure in modern times.
