Thinking back to my grandma (great gran) who was the same age, she liked the following:

-Chocolate gingers or similar dark chocolate
-m&s mini soaps - they do floral ones. They also do other "traditional" toiletries
-real hankies
-costume jewellery
-photo frame
-writing set (envelopes and nice cards/paper)
-mints
-nail polish
-miniatures of whiskey

This post made me miss my great gran! She was always so well presented even when she was in her 90s and had dementia!

My grandparents get through loads of coffee and tonnes of cheese. I think my Nan can spend about £15 a week on cheese, lol.
Mine always appreciate fresh flowers and plants too.
