This is a gift idea for the extremely hard to buy for: go to an antique show or flea market and find a postcard dealer (or shop on the internet) and buy a few postcards from a hometown, somewhere they vacationed, or any place that would be special to the person you are giving them to. You could also choose any area of interest: cars, trains, animals, etc. This works especially well for older people who have plenty of “stuff.” You can find inexpensive vintage and antique postcards of where they grew up. Pick up an inexpensive postcard frame at a discount store such as Walmart and you have an instant, thoughtful gift.
