Christmas Gifts for Seniors
Gift giving for seniors, as an age group, can be particularly challenging. After all, having lived their lives and collected many possessions over the years, there’s often not much they want or need, WIth some creativity, however, you’ll be sure to have them smiling when they unwrap their gift.
If your parent or senior loved one lives alone or in a smaller home, something like a single serving coffee maker is an excellent gift. The simplicity of dropping in a single serving coffee or tea pod into a machine and pressing a button makes enjoying a cup in the morning require no prep or cleanup. Make sure to thoroughly explain how the machine works and how to source pods for it.
While the aging process may make physical activity difficult, it’s vitally important to keep the mind fit and healthy. Board games, puzzles, and anything that requires mental effort investment make great gifts for seniors. You can also find things like automatic card shufflers and card holders to compensate for any mobility issues your loved one may have. Games are also a great way to spend time with friends and family, allowing quality time to be spent with their loved ones.
Your loved one most likely is on a fixed income, and may not have the extra funds to treat themselves to go out and eat. Consider giving your loved one a gift card to a local restaurant they enjoy, allowing them to have a night on the town without having the stress of spending money on a non-necessity.
