The Best Gifts for Elderly Parents
By DJ Hughes
Are you looking for gifts for your elderly parents or grandparents? It can seem like a difficult thing to find just the right gift. True, some people are more difficult to buy for, but they are usually just picky and too particular. Generally speaking, gifts for the elderly are quite plentiful and not difficult to find; well, some of them.
There are some gender specific gift ideas to keep in mind and some people would love gifts that relate to their favourite hobbies and special interests. Do you know someone who loves to bake, or fish, craft or read? Do they have a love of travel, or Christmas, photos or birds, stamps, coins or movies? Knowing what they like can be the biggest help to knowing what to give the elderly as a gift, or for anyone else too, for that matter.
Now, if you’d like to consider something that may help them adapt to doing things easier as they age, consider magnifiers, audio books or books with large or giant print, games with larger pieces, puzzles with larger pieces. If you are looking for items like this specifically made for seniors, rather than the games and puzzles with large pieces made for children, you may have to look a little harder. See below for some help with that.
Have you considered older TV shows on DVD or old-time radio as gifts? You can find some wonderful old shows on DVD that the elderly might like. Shows like ‘The Lucy Show’, ‘Beverly Hillbillies’, ‘The Walton’s’, ‘Andy Williams’, ‘Red Skelton’, and the list goes on.
Old Time Radio has some classics the elderly are sure to love as a gift and these are great for playing in the car, or at home and for sharing with many others too. Some of the classics on old-time radio are ‘Sherlock Holmes’, ‘Bing Crosby’, ‘Bob Hope’, the ‘Twilight Zone’, ‘Perry Mason’, the ‘Orson Wells Collection’, and that is only to name a few. So very many to choose from and these are great even for people that you wouldn’t think would enjoy audio shows. They just aren’t around anymore and it is like new entertainment all over again.
