What can be a birthday present for a stitcher (80 +) who does not want any more stash of any kind? :)]

Wooden versions of painted Ukrainian Easter eggs and such like stuff are out of the question as original masterpieces are too expensive even if I could find them, and what is available in shops -well, my principle is never to give people what I myself would not want to have.

So what am I to do? Thank you in advance for any ideas LO{:}

Food is always good for people. Maybe you can make some cookies and do the frosting like cross stitch?. My grandparents and even my parents I do things they can use up. Gift cards for their favorite food is always a winner. Make up your own card with gift card. Movie tickets, or other event tickets. I have a friend I got chickens for that I donated to the Ark; they give the chickens to a family that needs them for food and money.
