Personalized Family Photo Album

Our Family Story Photo Book 8×8Create a photo book for grandfather. You can make a book of photos from his lifetime. Or create a book with a photo and greeting from each family member. The birthday greetings book is a great idea if the family is scattered and unable to be together for his birthday. At Shutterfly, it’s easy to design a book with a short greeting on each page. Ask family members to send a photo and a greeting. He will enjoy this treasure all through the year.
Our daughter makes Shutterfly photo books for us every year and they are so special to us all.


What to Buy for an 80 Year Old Man?

gifts for an 80 year old manAmazon EchoMy husband was thrilled when he opened his Amazon Echo. The Echo is the perfect gift for anybody, but most especially, I think, for senior citizens. This small electronic device plugs into a wall outlet and connects via wireless internet. It plays music on verbal command – “Alexa, play Frank Sinatra” or gives you a weather report when you ask, “Alexa, what’s the weather?”
The Echo will act as a timer or tell him what time it is or even give a brief news report.
Set up is so easy — Alexa walks you through it verbally.We use our Echo mostly for music, silly questions, timers, and the weather.This may be the best gift for an 80 year old man.


Funny Gifts for an 80 Year Old Man

An 80 year old fellow with a super sense of humor would love these gifts. Funny tee shirts, vintage 80 wine glass or even Dean Martin singing, “Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime.” Dean has been entertaining in my husband’s office for many years. I never know when he might push the button to hear Dean sing it one more time. Always funny and fun to hear!

    When my Dad turned 80 I didn’t know what to get him since he had everything. Since he hated getting old, I painted a rock for him with this message: “At least you’re not as old as this rock.”
    He loved it and kept it till he died.
