Have you finished your holiday shopping yet? While buying gifts for others is usually a joyous feeling, we know that it can be stressful as well. What if mom doesn’t like it? What if dad never uses this gift?

That’s why we always feel that gifts from the heart are the best kind, especially when giving gifts to your aging loved one. If you’re feeling crafty, take a look at a few of these homemade gifts:

Memory Blanket – If you have old baby clothes from your aging loved one’s children or grandchildren that are just sitting in storage you can put them to good use by creating a memory blanket! Here are directions!

Personalized Playlist – We know that music is very powerful, especially if your elderly loved one is living with Alzheimer’s or dementia, and a personalized playlist or CD with his/her favorite music from the past would make a wonderful gift!

Homemade Movies – Who doesn’t love watching homemade movies and taking a stroll down memory lane? You can even convert old VHS tapes to DVDs so they last longer and are more compact for storage.  Head to your local electronic store for more information.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on presents to give your loved one a special holiday!
