Put your Dad/Mom’s items in a shadow boxes along with a photo and give them as a Christmas gift.Going through some drawers here I found some things that were my dad's. My Mum saved my dad's military ribbons for DS as well as some other items. DS has his own place now so time for him to have them.
I also found some lovely handkerchiefs with a crocheted edge that my Mum did. I think I will pass them on to DD as she might like them.
