Shopping for your aging loved one can be harder than finding the new “it” toy of the season, and with so many options it can be hard to know where to start. We’ve put together the ultimate list of gift ideas to make this holiday season the easiest yet!
1. Give them the gift of comfort. With winter temperatures upon us, keeping comfortable and warm is important to keeping colds at bay. Treat your loved one to a cozy robe or a soft new sweater. Perhaps they need a new blanket or slippers with non-slip bottoms. A nice pair of flannel pajamas or flannel sheets are also great ideas.
2. Give them the gift of technology. Does your loved one enjoy reading a good book, but has a hard time with the font size? Get them an e-reader such as a Kindle. With millions of books at their fingertips and a customized font size, they can enjoy their favorite pastime while keeping their mind active. An easy to use cell phone is another gift they can keep with them at all times to ensure that they never miss another call.
3. Give them the gift of delivery. Who doesn’t need groceries? Offer to gift grocery delivery from their local market. Help keep your loved ones safe at home by signing them up for weekly or biweekly delivery of groceries and other essentials.
