Each month you get a box of clues to help you solve a murder. These monthly boxes are laid out like an episode of a TV show and they tell a bigger story. Six episodes complete a season. There are puzzles and ciphers to solve too for the puzzle lover.
Each box takes between 90 min and 3 hours to complete and can be used as a group experience too. Worried about content? The boxes are “PG-13” because some clues may be graphic (autopsy reports ans such).
Mahabis slippers are unique because they are convertible depending on the environment you are in. The natural rubber sole is removable for indoor use or pops on quickly for a run out to the mail box.

An aromatherapy diffuser is a wonderful way to release a healthful mist into the air. This gift will transmit at various settings, so you can let it run for 6-8 hours with a tank of water.

And what better way to do that than with favorite aromas too.

A beautiful piece of jewelry can make your loved one feel beautiful and pampered, especially if it has significant meaning. Find one that matches her style, or maybe take a look at birthstone necklaces if this is a gift for her birthday. Pick her brain a little and find out what her favorite stone is, and maybe get her a whole matching set (necklace, earrings, rings, and a bracelet) that features that stone. Pair it with a jewelry box.
If your gift recipient's a tea lover, get them a high quality set of tea accessories including a beautiful, but functional, teapot, a tea infuser, and a set of flavors you think she’ll enjoy. She may have been using the same teapot for decades now, so she’ll appreciate the upgrade.
A great gift for an older adult who is a lover of great music, or even a tech-savvy relative, will truly appreciate a senior friendly MP3 player.

General Gift Advice for Stylish Seniors
1. Jewelry Is A Great Gift
If you have a lot of money then you can always get expensive jewelry but if that’s not something you can afford there are also cheaper options. Just make sure you think of the style a person has before you get any kind of jewelry for them.
You want to make it a point to buy something that they will enjoy wearing because it’s something that fits them well. Look at jewelry they already wear as an example.
2. Clothing Can Be A Hit
Elderly men and women are sure to enjoy getting clothing as a gift, especially if it is stylish clothing. To get an idea of what your options are, be sure you shop around and see what will fit them and what to avoid getting them.
You may want to ask them at some point what size of shirt and pants they wear so you don’t buy something that doesn’t fit. Of course, you can always include the receipt with the gift so if it doesn’t fit them they can return it for something else.
3. Arts And Crafts For A Homemade Gift
Elderly people love it when you make something for them that they can treasure. For instance, you and your child could put together a bird house for an elderly relative or friend. Another idea would be to make a picture album that features photographs of your family that they may not have.
Either way, try to make something that speaks to the person. Think about what they are interested in and then you can make them something that they are sure to love for many years to come!
4. Gift Cards Work In Some Situations
If you don’t really know what to get your loved one as a gift, a gift card can be a good idea. Ask the person where they shop on a regular basis and get them a gift card for that place. Or, if you want them to be able to treat themselves to something you can go with a gift card for a place like a nice restaurant they generally couldn’t afford to go to otherwise.
Just make it a point to put enough money on a gift card for them to get something so they don’t have to spend their money on top of the gift card to get what they want.
5. Books Are Loved By A Lot Of Elderly People
If you are getting a gift for someone that has retired, then they may have a lot of time on their hands at this point. This means that they need things to do at home that are going to help them pass the time.
A great escape is through a book for a lot of people. To keep it stylish, research the latest authors and what books are making the top selling lists.
