We received a message yesterday, an email that complained that our last post had very little in the way of gifts senior citizens will actually love. You know what? Se was right! We try and think about practical gifts, or gifts that help keep seniors safe and comfortable however we’ve not mentioned much when it comes to gifts seniors will find fum entertaining thoughtful and ones they’d love to receive. In this list of senior citizen gifts, we’ll include fun gifts, gag gifts, heartwarming gifts and gifts they will really enjoy playing with!
From digital camera’s to iPads, a Kindle to new cell phone, you can never go with with an electronic gadget of some sort. For a list of pretty much every electronic gadget you could ever want to buy, check out Amazon’s electronic showcase.
Gifts like a new record player to play those old records, DVD collections of movies they loved, and coffee table books filled with images that evoke all kinds of emotion, gives that allow seniors to revisit eariler and sometimes better days are a good choice for a more sentimental gift. The new turntable models they have now are quite inexpensive and the DVD collections are pretty fun to spend an afternoon watching…These sort of gifts for seniors are perfect for going down memory lane.
Warm and Fuzzy Gifts
Seems like older folks often find themselves with a chill and aren’t able to stay warm. Help keep them warm and cozy with gifts like electric blankets and throws, cozy slippers and warm pajamas. Make them laugh with some novelty patterns on their pj’s or fancy them up with a stylish housecoat. Gifts that keep seniors warm are gifts that keep on giving and will keep them cozy and smiling.
Gifts that Glisten
Who doesn’t like a shimmer and shine in their life? Maybe a new watch, or some diamond earrings? Perhaps a pendant or a bracelet? Being old does’t mean being out of style, it just means their taste is a little more refined! This year, why not tut a big smile on their face with a some new jewelry? They will be happy you did!
Gift Cards and Certificates
Amazon and Starbucks gift cards are always a certain hit, especially for those senior citizens that don’e live close by. Another good idea, think about what their favorite restaurant is and pick up a gift certificate for a dinner for two. Even better? Take them to dinner and spend some quality time with them. Your love and your time is better than any gift you could buy :o)
Always good for a laugh or two, funny gifts for seniors will make ’em chuckle and smile for a while! From novelty gifts like senior warning signs to mug and shirts with funny slogans on them, get some cheap laughs with these inexpensive gag gifts for the elderly.
