Christmas is a time to show our loved ones just how much we care about them. Though it’s always the thought that really counts, seniors enjoy gifts they can use and love every day.
We’ve put a lot of thought into these suggestions for Christmas gifts for seniors to help inspire your shopping:
1. Acupressure Massaging Slippers
Massaging slippers can soothe tired, achy feet and make any wearer feel at ease. Add the acupressure element, and you’ve got instant relief, better circulation, and every excuse to take it easy. These acupressure slippers come with strategically placed “buttons” for optimal comfort, as well as replacement buttons to combat wear and tear.
2. Personalized Cutting Board
Your senior loved one is likely brimming with tried-and-true family recipes. Snag a handwritten copy of your favorite one and have it engraved on a personalized cutting board. Your loved one probably knows how to make your favorite treats and meals by heart, but this can be a loving and simple way to capture your favorite family recipes.
3. Window Bird Feeder
Bird watching is a favorite pastime for seniors, and this window bird feeder can bring more enjoyment to your loved one’s home. It attaches directly to the window using suction cups, which are easily removed for cleaning. Fill the large trough with birdseed and wait for feathered friends to come pay a visit.
4. Long-Distance Friendship Lamp
The best senior gifts are those that connect them with their loved ones, especially if family members don’t live close by. A long-distance friendship lamp can make the miles apart seem shorter. This gift is actually two in one—your senior keeps one lamp and gives the other to someone else. Each lamp turns on when both parties are near them, giving both of you an instant feeling of connection no matter how far apart you may be.
5. Amazon Echo Dot
Personal digital assistants like the Echo Dot from Amazon can make daily life easier for your senior loved one. With simple voice commands and connected technologies, they can turn lights off and on, ask about the weather, set alarms, and even make phone calls.
6. The GrandPad
The GrandPad is a unique tablet designed for seniors to stay in touch with their loved ones. It’s the gift that keeps giving—this Christmas season and for years to come. A simple user interface keeps options to a minimum. Seniors can use the tablet to make video calls, check email, and browse the internet. Large icons and fonts make it easy for them to see. Plus, family members can upload photos to a private network so their senior loved ones can see what they’ve been up to.
7. Skylight Digital Photo Frame
Many seniors agree that the best gift they could possibly receive is photos of their families. The Skylight photo frame makes this not only possible but also easy and limitless. Families can upload photos and send them directly to the senior’s photo frame.
The Christmas season is a time for giving and will be here before you know it. Get a jump on the season with these inspiring gifts for seniors and put a smile on your loved one’s face!
