1. Prep

The next time you visit your loved one, spend a little time observing them. What do they ask for help with? Maybe it's help buttoning up a collar, or putting on a coat or shoes. Understand what kind of dressing aid they'd love and what would go straight in the "regift" pile.

2. Pairing

A dressing aid is a useful - but not incredibly exciting - gift. Pair the dressing aid with a related item to add some fun! Gift them some funky socks with their shoe horn or pair a nice button up with a button hook aid. This is your chance to customize, so let your creativity shine through!

3. Test Run

So now you've given your gift, but will your loved one actually use it? Try scheduling a fun activity on the same day to give them an opportunity to test out the dressing aid. Take the family for a walk to give them a chance to put on some shoes, or go to a fancy dinner to try out a button hook. This gives you time teach them how to operate it, and has the added bonus of being a fun memory for both of you!
