Buying gifts for an elderly loved one can be very difficult, especially when they insist that they don’t need anything. Although your time and companionship is the best gift that you can give to your elderly relatives, still there are some special occasions which call for some thoughtful gifts, like holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and Mother’s/Father’s Day or grandparents day.

The senior home care phoenix experts at Home Care Assistance have compiled a list of some thoughtful and compassionate gifts to give you an idea what to give as a gift to a senior loved one.

Home Care/Cleaning Services Coupons

One of the most unique and interesting gifts is giving a cash voucher/coupon to the elderly. This gift certificate can be about anything from professional cleaning services to giving a makeover to their lawn. It is especially a very thoughtful gift for the elderly who are very conscious about cleaning but cannot perform these chores as per their liking.

Subscription for Grocery

Grocery shopping can become really hectic for the seniors, so get them signed up with the local grocery store. Stores like Walmart would deliver the required grocery right at the doorstep of your elderly loved one and they do not need to go through the hassle anymore. Also check if the local grocery store provides this service.

Pamper a Beloved Senior

People of every age-group enjoy getting pampered once in a while. Get some gift cards and present them to your parents or grandparents. They could avail these cards at the hairdresser, spa, or a barber. You can treat your mother or grandmother with a full beauty treatment. This idea can be adjusted according to your preference. If you are lucky enough to have both your parents/grandparents, present them a gift card to their favorite restaurant or hangout.

Arrange a Tea Party

With the help of caregiver at senior home care phoenix, plan a tea-party for your senior loved one. Invite some of their friends. Organize a game of bingo with some lavish tea menu. They would definitely find this gift very thoughtful and heartfelt.

Coffee or Tea Gift Hampers

If you live far or in another city/country, you can order an online coffee or tea hampers and get it delivered for the senior you love so much. You can even order customized gift baskets by including your elderly loved one’s favorite eatables and other personalized items like personalized mugs etc.

Personalized Jewelry

A photo locket is still a very good idea for any grandma or mom. There are a lot of other personalized jewelry ideas you can find online. You just need to take out some time.
