What do you buy an 80 year old for his birthday?


I used to play a little.
Oct 24, 2003
Hi All,

My Grandad has his 80th coming up! He lives alone. He has loved sport all throughout his life.

He is a lot less nimble now, with a fragile memory to say the least. He never likes a fuss to be made. But it's his 80th. Most likely his last big birthday celebration...

What can I do that he will really appreciate? He is a legend and has spent so much time and money on me over the years, supporting me at all my football games, buying sweets and chocolate and football stickers after school. In my eyes he is someone I have always looked up to and I want to do something a bit special.

His birthday falls on the 28th May, which i believe to be around about the time of the Champs League final. However, I think he would find the whole experience a little too overwhelming at his age and he can't walk far before he needs to rest.

I have ordered a Parky DVD to get things started which shows 150 minutes of clips from his favourite episodes and backstage clips too.

I am his only grandson and suggestions of Blowup Dolls etc may also be slightly overwhelming at his age :whistling: but if you could help me and get the ball rolling with gift ideas and any other event ideas etc that would be great!

Thanks Shrimperzone!
