Gift giving has always been a much loved holiday tradition but it is one that seniors may miss out on due to financial constraints or inability to go shopping.
We have compiled a short list of handcrafted DIY projects that would allow seniors to make gifts for their friends and family. Making gifts and Christmas decorations is a great way to bring some holiday cheer into the lives of seniors, allows residents to spend quality time together, and gives them the satisfaction of being able to continue the tradition of gift giving. Handmade gifts can also be a cherished keepsake for friends and family for years to come.
