With the holiday season rapidly approaching, and knowing we are all going to be having very different celebrations this year, we started thinking about some gifts older adults are that thrilled to receive and those that bring moments of joy.

Diva’s Top Ten Gifts that DON’T jingle our bells…

  • A scarf. Not unless it is absolutely gorgeous…and/or warm!
  • Chocolates. Well, OK, maybe a small box of really good chocolates!
  • Clothes. What do I do if they don’t fit? Or they’re the wrong colour?
  • Fridge magnets. These do tend to add additional clutter.
  • Gift Certificates. But, how will I get to the store to buy something?
  • Jewellery. I love bling, so please make sure it’s easy to put on.
  • Knickknacks. I really don't need more stuff!
  • Lotions. I’ve got so many bottles now that I could stock my own store.
  • Pretty serviettes. How many packages does one person need?
  • Real candles. I don't use them anymore because they're a fire hazard.
Diva’s Top 10 Gifts that DO jingle our bells...

  • A book by one of my favourite authors – or even an audio book.
  • A bouquet of fresh flowers is always a thing of beauty!
  • A donation to my favourite charity.
  • A treasured family recipe, baked and packaged just for me.
  • A framed photo of you with me.! Perfect!
  • A funny email sent each week will cheer me up all year long.
  • A jar of jam or honey can be a very special treat.
  • A phone Call. I love to chat and get caught up on the latest news!
  • A subscription to my favourite magazine.
  • My Favourite food from the “old” country.

simply yours...

In Caledon-Dufferin, the BOA has been passed along...
Brenda Alderdice, the amazing Diva in Caledon-Dufferin, is now retiring. You may remember Brenda as I purchased the Etobicoke territory from Brenda. She is passing along her purple feather boa to another fabulous Diva – Lisa Jackson.

Congratulations Brenda!
