Think outside the box
A discount retail store may be your best option. Wal-Mart and Target have lots of items that would make good gifts. Jewelry and candy may be picked over. Watches, a nice jewelry box or cabinet might be alternative ideas.

Other possibilities could be a memory card for the camera,
camcorder, a digital picture frame or a printed photo of the grandkids in a nice frame.


Gift cards
Almost every store sells gift cards these days. Check the grocery store, retail stores, convenience center or gas stations. 

E-gift cards
