We went out hunting for great gift ideas for some older people in your life — though some of these ideas would be great for anyone. Some of the best gifts involve a little more time, but you can be sure they will not be shoved into a closet.
Gift Idea #1: All the Stories
Wish you knew the smaller stories of your parents or grandparents, but not sure how to ask or how to store them? Storyworth has something nice figured out. You purchase this and every week Storyworth sends an email and the recipient responds with a story. You can the response but also Storyworth compiles all these responses together into a book at the end of the year.
Another option for people who want to write their life story is from Louisville-based Feettothefirewriters.com, which features a writing kit and the ability to connect to peers virtually in Feet to the Fire online groups. The kit guides people to begin writing down their life stories in a purposeful, easy-to-follow process.
