    A frame with a photo of them and your bub in.

    Or a mug with handprint on.

    We made a lolly jar and filled it for DF's Dad for his 60th and he loves it.

    Oh maybe a jar with a handprint and written on it pops treats then can put the rocky road I was planning on making inside?

    Thanks tadpoles!!

    I think maybe those gourmet hampers.
    He is a widow so probably won't use a restaurant voucher.
    I did the movies last year and gave it back to me a few months ago to use cause he didn't go.
    Oh he hates reading.
    I told ya he was hard lol
    Maybe you could give him a voucher for a gourmet food delivery service (like lite n easy but not diet food). I think this would be good for a widow who might not like cooking or be bothered to cook himself yummy things. One website I found was https://www.gourmetdinnerservice.com.au/

    Magazine subscription?
    A new outfit?
    DVD box set . Maybe David Attenborough collection?
    Do you have any of photos of you and him from your childhood ? Maybe you could have it restored and framed ?
    Fruit tree?
