Senior-Friendly Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day is fast approaching and if you are someone who is struggling to find a perfect gift for your elderly mom or loved ones that is useful, helpful and senior-friendly. Here are some gift ideas that they will surely love and enjoy.
Jewelry: Let’s be honest, everyone loves jewelry and it is a perfect gift for any occasion. Find a jewelry that makes them feel great and comfortable. You can give them a personalized gold or sterling silver necklace with charms, pearl earrings, bracelets or a ring with their birthstone.
Books and Stationery: Give them some books about novel, trivia, biography or a Bible. Reading books is a great exercise for the brain — it improves focus and concentration. Coloring Bible and Bible journaling has gained popularity among adults and seniors too — it is a therapeutic activity that reduces stress and anxiety. If they like stationery, give them colorful sticky note sets, notebooks, markers, stamps, pens, scrapbooking and journaling materials.
Skin Care Products: Skin care products are one of the best gifts for our senior mother or loved ones. Our senior loved ones are more prone to skin allergies and issues — it is important to consider their skin type when choosing a product such as soap, cleanser, toner, moisturizer, lotion, perfume and sunscreen. Spa gift set is also a great gift for them.
Coffee or Tea: For many senior citizens, having a cup of coffee or tea is part of their daily routine. Giving them a coffee maker, coffee mug or tea set for Mother’s Day is also a great idea.
Safety and Medical Device: If you want to make sure that your elderly mother or loved ones is safe, buy them a medical alert device that monitors their vitals or a fall detection device that has the ability to call for help in case of emergency.
Your elderly mother or loved ones may also enjoy these activities for Mother’s Day, such as watching movies, eating in a fancy restaurant, having a salon treatment, massage, spa, manicure or pedicure. Also, consider giving them a gift voucher or card for something that they want to enjoy or buy. Spending time and expressing how much we love and care for them are the best things that we could give. Express your love to your elderly mom by giving them handwritten letters or cards. And, always remember this quote from Henry Van Dyke “It is not the gift, but the thought that counts.”
