Thanks Star Gaze, he's already got the chair and bench on a little decking area my partner built for him two years ago and they have many many bird feeders dotted around the area just outside the conservatory which is beautiful sit and watch the comings and goings of the birds / mice / squirrel.

I really think he's hit the point of having *everything*. Perhaps when I was last there I should have tripped and broken a few things to leave space for new gifts!

The presents I like best are plants. Over the years as they grow they always remind me of the people who bought them, and the time at which they gave it me. Nowadays people dont want to risk plants, in case I dont like them, so they give vouchers instead. I try to buy specific plants with the vouchers so I can attribute them to the giver.

Clari, let me know what you get your grandad, hope he gives you some help in deciding.  Good luck pressie hunting x

Clari, maybe some "posh" labels for his alpines.

Hmm posh labels there's an idea! I think I'll raid the garden centre again on Saturday morning and see if they've anything that would suit. Thanks KEF!

Felco left handed secateurs!

Clari, did you find a pressie for your grandad?

Star Gaze; we've resorted to a large cool pack system for his medications (you moisten it with water and the pack stays cold for 45 hours, to refresh you only have to re-moisten it and its ready to go in 30 minutes- much easier than having to cool gel packs overnight and ideal when you're out for the day / if the caravan fridge packs up). He's also got a solar panelled charging unit to sit in the back window of his car as because it doesn't get moved much it tends to flatten itself at the most inconvenient time! Both practical but not exactly fun :/

Lovely gift Clari, I bet he'll love it and be very grateful.  Is he allowed sweeties? They always appreciate sweeties  

Clarington

Alas he's not allowed anything sweet and if grandma would have you believe should be living off bread and water! I did think about a small box of chocolate but with all the trifles and other "treats" he allows himself to have "because its Christmas" his blood sugar will be through the roof.

Oh bless him, hope he likes his pressie x
