suggestions needed

Hi there
My Gran is 90 so this year I am giving the gift of time... I am planning on writing 12 notes, one for each month with an idea of spending more time together, I've thought of things like a games afternoon, picnic, shopping trip & coffee but I am still stuck for a few ideas, can anyone help???

    Trip to the hairdressers.

    An afternoon of baking.

    A trip to the cinema.

    An afternoon of card games.

    Trip to play bingo.

    English tea party.

    You could make her lunch at home, or take her out for lunch.

    Invite her over for a Sunday roast.

    You could give her a manicure and a facial.

    What a super idea of yours so much nicer than a bought present.
