Christmas Gift Ideas for a Blind Man?

My father in law is blind, and my husband and i are just stumped as to what to get him for Christmas. He had laser eye sergury that went bad in both eyes and now is completely blind. His interests are cars (he collects model cars and classics) but he can't put together the models anymore because he can't see! Any ideas???

    Ipod is the Perfect gift,

    Just because hes blind doesn't mean he cant rock out to some of his favorite music

    Get him a shuffle the other Ipod's he probably cant use

    I have the same problem with my grandma. Get him some chocolates, a clock that talks when you hit the button, some music that he can listen to, blind objects used for the blind, look for a catalogue in the area, there was one in my area for blind people, ask around for one they might know at a blind clinic or a glasses place.

    My husband is blind. He has the watch that tells him time with the push of a button. He also has a clock that talks to him telling him the time, date and day of the week. I am no looking for something he doesn't have and may enjoy. He also had Dementia so a hard one to buy for.

    a sweet smelling escort for the X-mas weekend that will take him to the malls and other functions for the blind and out to dinner. Of course she goes home @ nite and picks him up in the a.m. This is under the premise that he prefers a woman over a man and not both.

    Here's some idea from the web.

    A gift certificate is always a good choice when you can't come up with an idea.

    I think the best would be, something that has sound. Maybe a recording ornament, like the ones in Hallmark. I hope you have a good Christmas!

    My aunt-in-law is blind. She likes audio books or go to this website for gift ideas for the visually impaired:

    The talking clocks are great ideas.

    Well it won't be automotive or things he can see. You are going to have to work with the other senses ...smell, and touch and taste. It is not unusual to change "hobbies" while you are functioning with all senses....so he is basically forced to change hobbies. He knows that. What have you observed about his other "likes in life"

    Hopefully it is not juggling steak knives.
