Amazing gifts for seniors often stymies the most ardent shoppers. Not anymore! Let’s get some of the best gifts for our seniors and show them how much we love and appreciate them.
For Active Seniors:
Seniors today are much more active than our counterparts were fifty years ago. While we suffer ailments due to aging, we don’t let them stop us in our tracks. We plow on and try our best to stay active. To that end, I am always looking for ways that will help keep me and my peers active and moving all the time.
One of my newest favorite activities is a game called Pickleball!There are clubs and groups all over the country and more are springing up each day, as this game starts to take hold of a new( older) generation of players. You can read all about it at a review I did for a publication I write for called Review This! In short, this game is for all ages with the majority of the players being over 60 years of age. Perfect in my books for an outstanding gift for seniors. It is also so reasonably priced that anyone can get started without BIG cash investments. Check it out here:
I know that this game is a winner for seniors! While on holidays in Myrtle Beach, we met a whole bunch of Pickleballers, who had just finished a tournament! They were so excited and thrilled to be telling me about this newest fitness craze that they had started to play. I came home to find that there are Pickleball Associations all over the world. So you know that it will be a winner for sure. Keeping active and social is important for all seniors. Use the link to find a group near you!
For Seniors Who Love to Read:
Books are always a great gift for seniors! They have the time to get “into” a book and keep on reading until they have reached the end. Don’t let a lack of reading material be a reason to stop. Kindle readers are wonderful gift ideas and if you check with your local Public Library, you can give the gift of reading at a reasonable cost. Most libraries lend books that are delivered to a Kindle device. So even if your senior can’t get to the library, the library can come to them. Kindle readers come in several different models, but all of them are great for seniors, even those with sight problems can find that Kindle enlarges the print size to make it easier to read. There are also several different price points to suit your budget. There are millions of books available for the Kindle too! So whatever your favorite seniors like to read, be it romance novels, murder mysteries or travel books, it’s all available for them! What a fantastic gift this would be for that senior who loves reading!
For Seniors Who Love Being at Home:
So while many seniors are active and still like to get out, there are others, who really enjoy just being at home. They have their friends and hobbies and just don’t care to go out too much. So what gifts would be appropriate for them? Well here’s a list that might make it easier for you:
A great place to get some really soothing indoor features that will make any seniors’ home more relaxing and inviting. From Indoor fountains, and products for relaxing, to solar lights and more. Find that perfect something and have it sent to your favorite senior.
If you are far away and still want to let your seniors know that they haven’t been forgotten, this is a great link just for you. They have all sorts of wonderful candy that can be sent from coast to coast. They have a line of sugar-free, gluten-free goodies that will make any senior smile with delight. These are great gifts for any senior and they can choose to share them with friends or hide them somewhere special, for their own personal enjoyment.
A great place to get Grammie or Grandpa a really nice set of Pajamas. They will sleep like babies when they wear these beautiful pajamas or nightgowns. Silk will keep them warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. They will know just how much you care when they are wearing and sleeping so comfortably. Affordable and easy care too, so you don’t have to worry that they won’t wear them. If pajamas aren’t your style, then a nice silk pillowcase will keep Grammies hair looking it’s best too!
When we have older family members that are having difficulty with remembering things, let’s find a way to help them out! This alarm/clock is a great idea and a ready reminder for your loved ones, as to what day it is and the time too. All in great big letters and numbers so that even the seniors who have problems with their sight will find this useful. Heck, you don’t have to be sight impaired to find this useful. I know I’d love to have one of those.
For Socially Active Seniors:
There are Seniors that love to play mind games too. It keeps the grey matter working best if it gets some stimulation. There are word games, number games and sight games too! Some can be played individually and others can be played in groups! You know what your favorite aunt, uncle or grandparents love to do, so you decide or let them decide.
Some great suggestions would be:
And then there are games and more all available from Amazon and delivered right to your favorite seniors home! What could be easier than that and they will love that you have remembered them in such a fine and fun way.
