With the holidays around the corner you’re most likely scrambling to check people off your gift shopping list. And if you have a senior on your list, you may be struggling to find an item they’ll actually use. Don’t worry, we know seniors and we’ve got a list of items we think any older adult would love to receive and, better yet, love to use.
Ember Temperature Control Mug
For the senior in your life who loves spending some time enjoying a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa but prefers it piping hot rather than room temperature. The Ember Temperature Control Mug can keep drinks hot for almost two hours when fully charged and comes with a convenient charging coaster to help keep it warm for longer.
Acupressure Foot Massage Slippers
It might sound silly, but it’s the little things that matter when you reach a certain age. Besides, who couldn’t use a little foot massage? These slippers and ones like them help improve nerve sensitivity, blood flow and circulation and can help decrease general tension–all in a convenient slipper package.
Weighted Heated Blanket
Talk about double duty! This is the perfect gift to keep warm but also help combat anxiety and loneliness. Weighted blankets have become popular for their ability to alleviate anxiety, decrease insomnia and can even help reduce symptoms of restless leg syndrome. With the added benefit of heat, it makes for the perfect gift that any older adult would love to use all winter long.
Custom Recipe Cutting Board
For the grandmother or grandfather on your list that was famous for their apple pie or was the one you called when you needed a soup to make you feel better, this gift is perfect. There are a variety of artisans that can create a custom cutting board that features your favorite recipe from your loved one. Not only can it be used for cooking and serving, but it makes for a great decorative memento to remind them how much you love and appreciate them.
Facebook Portal Or Other Video Calling Device
Keeping in touch with loved ones can be invaluable for many older adults. And what better way to stay in touch than over a video call. Devices like Facebook’s Portal allow for easy, seamless video calls. The device can be set up somewhere convenient for your loved one and are touchscreen to make it an easy, hassle-free way to stay connected.
