How about; lavender sachets for the ladies and car air fresheners (paper ones) for the men, travel size shampoo and conditioner, tissues and body spray (try Reject shop for $1 bargains), op shops for nick nacks, books, jewellery, scarves.

Hankies, Packets of Tissues, Combs you can buy for $2 a packet. Bars of Soap I wrap them in cellophane and tie a ribbon around, mini photo frames, sensory bags, ask staff if they have any toiletries from hotels they would like to stay in.

Great ideas. Sally, Rosina Cathy, Shari,
and Anna
I particularily like boxes of Kleenex
It seems like the residents never have enough Kleenex and I always need it.
Costume jewelry necklaces always seem to be a hit for the ladies
I think ties are nice for some of the man and you might be able to get some donated I always did
Thanks again everyone for your suggestions

Birthday cards to give to family or Friends.

Birthday cards and other cards are a good idea as long as they have the help of the staff to send them
