A Bar Mitzvah for an 83-year old
I have been invited to a "second" Bar Mitzvah for a much loved relative, and I will be honored to attend. But I have absolutely no idea of what kind of gift to get.
Any suggestions?

1. Well...
...you know there are many an inappropriate jokes, but since you said loved relative, I will be nice. :)

Gift certificates are nice because he can spend it anyway he wants. Cash is always a time honored favorite. Another thing might be something that reflects your feelings toward him or something which touches on a hobby he likes.

Have fun!

2. If he already has everything he's ever going to need, how about
a donation in his name to an appropriate cause, maybe Jewish National Fund(?)

3. That may be the best thing. Thanks.
I would have liked to get something personal, but he really does have everything he needs.
