Well lets see...old people usually have everything, and don't usually need anything so my suggestion would be to make something sentimental...

...I painted a breakfast plate for my granny of 91 yrs, so that she could use it everyday and think of me...she loved it!

...some other ideas might be to paint or mosaic a picture frame and then enclose a picture of the family, you could also make laminated placemats with pictures of the family.  My suggestion is to make something sentimental so they can look at it everyday and think of you (especially if you only see them once a year)...old people like that...and it makes them feel less lonely.

good luck on your crafty adventures! Grin
