Those of us still trying to find the right present for our parents; especially when one is the caregiver and the other is the one requiring some added assistance; there is a thought. And this present is especially easy after we have traveled to their house so we have mastered too of the biggest hurdles. All the adult children wanting to should gather and find the family picture albums.
Take the album to a living room or dining room and go through the pictures, use post it notes to determine which one to use. These should be pictures annotating significant events in our parents’ lives. Now go to Kinko.com or if go to the Kinko Store and have copies made (all in black and white, this gives a look of surviving the test of time). At this point we have our choice, either an album or scrapbook both can be bond so they do not come out, and make a book with stories of the pictures. Title for this might be Time.
We can make this will little more than a day and it will be a very well received gift for our parents. Now this book can go with them and will become a conversation piece at any activity they should attend. This will be a gift treasured during the years ahead and one the siblings will all remember putting together.
