Finding the right gift can be time-consuming and frustrating. Finding the right gift for someone in a different generation than you can be even more confusing. What do they like? How will you know what items they need in their life? If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift for your elderly loved one, here are five thoughtful gifts for seniors that may work for you.
Homemade gifts can be the perfect option for a senior in your life. Homemade gifts come from the heart, which is what your elderly loved one will care about the most. Make a scrapbook of good memories or a quilt that represents their life for a meaningful gift that shows how much you care.
Digitized Old Movies and Photos
As technology progresses, a lot of devices that seniors were accustomed to has become obsolete. Many times, old photos and home videos get lost in this transition. Take old photos and videos and convert them into digital discs, CDs, or cloud storage, so your loved one can reminisce on old memories.
A Large Print Bible
For many seniors, their church is their community. As we get older, it can become harder and harder to read the small print often found in books and the Bible. A large print Bible is a great option for a loved one who is active in their church.
An Ancestry Test Kit
Ancestry tests have become easily available for anyone to order online. Order your loved one an ancestry test kit to trace back their lineage for a deeper look at their family history and provide them the opportunity to share with future generations.
A Personalized Puzzle
Puzzles are fun activities for seniors to keep their minds stimulated. Customize a puzzle with a sentimental photo for an extra heartfelt surprise at the end. Puzzles can also be customized by size to accommodate cognitive or physical abilities appropriately.
Homemade gifts, digitalized memories, large print Bibles, ancestry test kits, and customized puzzles are five thoughtful gifts for seniors you should consider for your loved ones.
