Holiday Gift Ideas for Aging Adults

Santa Claus will soon be coming to town! What are some holiday gifts that are especially appreciated by aging adults? Many aging adults have a bunch of ‘stuff’ already so what holiday gift ideas can make their life easier and more fun?

Hot gifts for seniors

Last year we posted a blog on technology gifts for seniors. Some of our favorites from this list are still the Amazon Dot or Google’s Nest Mini. The Apple watch has special fall capabilities and has even improved its health benefits.

Item trackers (Tile and Apple Airtag) can come in handy for misplaced items. We can all use some help locating things from time to time! These have become especially popular to place in luggage and handbags during travel.

Sharing memories

Many seniors are thrilled with any gifts with photos of their family. These gifts hold sentimental value and can even be helpful for those with memory loss to help reminisce. Photo collage blankets can add warmth and become a nice reminder of beloved family members. Photo calendars are also quite popular and affordable. In addition, digital picture frames always make wonderful gifts especially since family far away can add photos to them throughout the year. What a special way to keep up with watching the grandkids grow up!

Make meal time easier

As we age, it can become more difficult to cook healthy meals. A meal service or meal kit can be helpful and appreciated gifts. An Instantcart (or similar service) membership can be perfect for those still preparing meals but who have a more difficult time shopping. A perfect addition to these suggestions is adaptive utensils and cutlery which are designed to help people with special needs dine independently.

Let’s stay warm

Lastly, who doesn’t love some cozy socks or slippers? These can be found at lower price points and get daily use during the cold months. Heated blankets can also be helpful during chilly winter nights.
