Are you shopping for a senior this holiday season? I’m Laurie Edwards-Tate with “LifeCycles.”

In a survey conducted by a Salem, Oregon senior center, leading preference was gift certificates for favorite restaurants. Other gift certificates were also popular: for events, travel, airline vouchers, credit toward a cruise. Third choice was cash. Also suggested: donations to a favorite charity. But by a huge margin, seniors wished time with children and grandchildren.

The truth is this: Senior don’t want your presents – what they really want is your PRESENCE. Get on a plane or a train and make it happen this year!
