80th Birthday Gift Idea
Posted by: jamieduffy ()

Mom and Dad are both eighty this year. My sisters and I want to offer them something special, obviously, but they are in that stage of their lives when they really do not want "things" anymore. I got a picture of them with their grandchildren for their golden wedding. My dad doesn't look very good, I don't drink, I go on many vacations, but I don't go too far.

We are at a loss as to what to get them. Both are musical and enjoy the theater, but nowadays they worry about everything, much more than they used to.

Does anyone have great ideas? I would be very grateful to hear your suggestions.

Trips! Activities! Surprises?
Take out a big payout term life insurance policy, you can never be too careful. Review their last wills. Take out a hidden home line of credit and put the money in your savings for "safe keeping" and "emergencies in case they want to put them in the nursing home and steal all their money."

Buy them a long safe trip on one of those big luxurious COVID research cruise vessels. Sign them up for all the big fun social events and get them up on that climbing wall.

Toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Simple, utilitarian, and personal.

Parents deserve all our attention, care and love, especially for their birthdays. I know many parents, as well as mine don’t like to celebrate their birthdays, due to the fact that their energy level is low and they simply don’t see any point in making big parties. However, I have a completely a different idea about birthdays. Probably I’m too young to understand my parent’s feelings but each birthday is a momentous occasion which should be spend with a lot of fuss and noise. Ladies, my advise to you is to buy as many gifts and organize a pompous party with all relatives, neighbour, co-workers and relatives. You should fill the house with flowers for your mom and buy favorite wine or whiskey for your daddy. It would be great if you’ll order some gift baskets from https://www.jetgiftbaskets.com/ which contain useful things for a 80 years old woman and man. Good luck and make your parents feel the most special and loved!

You do realize there is a pandemic going on? Someone in their 80s should not be having a party with a bunch of fucking people in their home.
