Introduction:As the holiday season approaches, you might want to get some ideas for the top 5 Christmas gifts for a senior citizen. Not all Christmas gifts need to be expensive, or even bought to bring the smile to the face of an elderly loved one.
There is no better Christmas gift for a senior citizen than to simply drop by and spend a few hours over coffee and fresh donuts and chat with your senior citizen friend. The time you spend with them will mean more than all gifts combined.
The Kindle ebook reader is a great gift for any senior citizen for a number of reasons. See the articles in the resource section below for more information about Kindles and senior citizens.
A small heated throw will keep any senior citizen toasty warm. Just make sure that the heat setting on the new throw is not too hot for your senior citizen's comfort. Note: a senior citizen may not always be aware of how hot a throw is and can suffer a skin burn fairly easily.
Elderly feet may get more chilled than younger feet. Chilled feet are not fun, even under that warm throw. Buy warm socks that don't have grippies on the bottom though as the grippies can throw an elderly person who might shuffle.
Before you give gifts of baked goodies, check with the senior citizen or family members to make sure there are no dietary restrictions. Nuts are not always a friend of the elderly.
The best Christmas gift for a senior citizen is the gift of time so set aside an afternoon to reminisce about days of yore.
Very comprehensive list for gifts for senior citizens. Thanks H5
I suggest you give them the Just5 phone. Even if they are technophobes or have poor eyesight, the phone will work for them. It is very easy-to-use and is helpful for their everyday communication needs. The greatest thing about this phone is its free emergency response features. In just a press of a button, the user can contact help immediately through automatic dialing and alarm. I found this phone at www.just5.com and I gave one each for my grandparents last Christmas.
