With more than 33 million people over age 65 in the United States, almost everyone has an older parent, Grandma or Grandpa for whom they buy a holiday gift. Sometimes, it can be challenging to find a gift that senior citizens will appreciate. Wellhaven Gifts for Seniors offers ideas for entertaining gifts for senior citizens.
Large Face Playing Cards Â It seems everyone is playing cards these days, thanks to the popularity of televised poker games. Why not make it an intergenerational activity? Have a Card PlayersÂ Night when the older relatives teach the younger ones a thing or two about playing various card games. Use easy-to-read large face playing cards and card holders for those with difficulty holding a large number of playing cards. A card shuffler makes it easy for those with arthritis or limited dexterity.
Musical Memories Collections Â Provide hours of entertainment with a gift box set of original recordings of Big Band era or 1950s music. Show tunes from old movies also make a good gift. Seniors enjoy reminiscing with their favorite songs while at home, in the car or at a milestone birthday or anniversary party.
Age-Less Humor Gifts Â Some may think that people lose their sense of humor as they age, but seniors do enjoy a good laugh. Studies show that those who keep a positive and humorous outlook on the aging process live longer than those who donÂt. Before there were sitcoms on TV, old-time radioÂs comedy legends provided hours of entertainment. For those who experience Âsenior moments,Â the Senior Moments game or playing cards could be a fun gift.
Reminiscing Games Â Reminiscing can be a private or social activity. Make it easy for seniors to share a lifetime of memories with family and friends with the Reminiscing Game. It is now available in the master edition with hundreds of bonus movie trivia questions going back to 1939. For those who enjoy music trivia, the For the Record game, with its guitar-shaped game board, is available in an oldies edition with questions from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
Large Print Books Â For seniors who enjoy reading as a quiet form of entertainment, large print books, whether compilations of short stories or full-length novels, make a thoughtful gift. For those with low-vision who may not be able to read any longer, audio books or old-time radio dramas are entertaining gifts.
According to Patricia Curry, founder of Wellhaven Gifts for Seniors, ÂThe gift of entertainment is timeless. Senior citizens of all ages, from the Âprime timersÂ to the elderly, enjoy the social interaction you can create with the gift of entertainment. Often, the time spent with Grandma and Grandpa while enjoying these fun activities can become more important than the gift itself.Â
