Christmas is a little over two weeks away! Undoubtedly, the next couple of weeks will be among the busiest for Canadian retailers. Even as we continue to contend with the coronavirus pandemic, shoppers remain on the hunt to find their loved ones the perfect holiday gifts. The task isn’t so easy when it comes to the seniors in our lives, is it? What would make the perfect gift for your elderly mom and/or dad? We have a few ideas!
A back and neck massager.
You’d be hard pressed to find an older adult who doesn’t experience aches and pains every now and then. A back and neck massager can often be the ideal solution to sore spots in those areas. Be sure to find one that is lightweight and easy to use so the senior in your life can easily manage it.
“There are plenty of electric massagers on the market,” notifies Montreal’s Complete Care Coordination, “These are made to help with sore muscle, and sometimes use a heating function to relieve joint pain. Of course, since many older adults suffer from arthritis, these are specifically great Christmas gifts for seniors.”
A cozy blanket.
It’s hard to go wrong with a soft and comfortable blanket during the wintertime. This is especially true for seniors who tend to feel the brunt of chilly temperatures a bit more than the rest of us. Consider your elderly loved one’s favourite colour and/or the decor of his/her bedroom. Find the perfectly-suited blanket and offer your mom and/or dad a cozy rest of the winter!
“There are so many custom options available these days!” Dana Larsen points out on APlaceForMom.com, “Your loved one will enjoy this gift every time it gets chilly. Whether you’re a talented quilter who can create a homemade masterpiece, or you prefer to customize with a heartfelt photo throw from Costco or Shutterfly, this is a gift option that will warm the soul along with the body.”
A flower subscription.
Do you know a woman – no matter her age – who doesn’t appreciate the beauty of a bouquet of flowers? The only thing we can think of that is better than offering flowers as a holiday gift is a new bouquet every month! Literally the gift that keeps on giving, a flower subscription makes it so that new flowers are delivered to your elderly loved one on a monthly basis.
“Subscribing to a service that delivers something fresh and a little different each month is one way to delight your loved one and put a smile on their face,” agrees San Francisco’s Home Care Assistance, “If flowers aren’t the right choice, there are many options including foods, wines, beers, or a pampering service of some sort like a monthly spa facial.”
