GIFT SHOPPING FOR YOUR FAVOURITE SENIOR? 20 Suggestions for "Clutter-Free" Gifts.

I've often found it a challenge to find just that perfect gift for the seniors in my life. By the time they reach that stage they usually have everything they want, yet you still want to get them a gift to let them know how special they are to you.
Now that I'm a senior myself I know the type of gift that suits - its not "stuff" that clutters, but things that create memories or makes life more enjoyable. Keeping that thought in mind, I've made up a list of suggestions for "clutter-free" gifts that I think will make that special senior feel treasured and appreciated.
