My grandpa is having a knee replacement surgery in December and I would like to get him a gift. I don't think flowers are his kinda thing, so I wanted some ideas! He will be on a diet to lose weight so only healthy snacks, he likes golf and TV. Other than that he doesn't do much else besides being an awesome grandpa! Any Ideas?

Does he live alone?  If he does, then premade meals and help around the house for chores - whether you do it yourself or arrange for it, will show you care by allowing him time to heal, and feeding him so he doesn't have to worry about cooking.  Learning his physio exercises and helping him with his recovery too.

Other than that, can you sew?  What about a PJ and robe set for when he is in hospital - something loose, not to long, and easy to put on.  Support pillows for when he is in bed to help support his legs/affected limb.  Customize a cane with decoration (engraving, carving, painting, etc).
