Stocking Fillers Gift Guide | Disabled Adults & Elderly Relatives
Thoughtful Little Christmas Presents for Disabled Adults or Elderly Relatives. Ideal Stocking Fillers!
Stocking Fillers are an important part of the Christmas Tradition in our family. My favourite thing on Christmas morning is waking up and discovering that "Father Christmas has been!" Delighted cries ring out all over the house as various family members, excitedly or reluctantly, emerge from slumbers and realise Christmas Day has finally arrived.
We love this tradition so much that ALL family members of ALL ages are included. Stockings are hung and gifts are secretly distributed by and for everybody. This usually involves furtive sneaking about in the dark, startling each other on landings and great hilarity!
To help you find the perfect Stocking Fillers for the big kids in your life, we have compiled a Stocking Fillers guide with a difference. We've focused on finding little things that will make a big difference and bring a big smile to the faces of elderly or disabled relatives.
This genius little device is as small as a thimble and sharp as a craft knife, but it can't cut you.
It is exactly what you need to open tricky packaging safely and easily.
