I read the title of this topic "Who wants to BUY an 80 years old man"! I must be going mad in my young age.

What about something like what you get in Clintons, like a plaque saying what a great grandad he is, some of them have space for you to put a photo of yourself in.

Failing that a nice pyjamas and dressing gown set?

Or one of those back heat/massaging thingies?

wow a hard one, maybe a good book or two or a cd of his favourite music it might be from an era he enjoyed like the 40s or 50s

I like the last two ideas.. The family portrait one especially. He's a great-grandad too, so a piccie of you all would be lovely

Family protrait is out. Cant do it when we arent 100% family at the mo.

Thanks everyone for your ideas.

I really like the gold pocket watch idea and get it engraved. Not sure what to put though.

maybe on the watch you can put something like "always on my mind, forever in my heart".
