Each Mother's Day, families face a tough question: "Where do I find a thoughtful gift for my older mother, who insists that she doesn’t need anything?" Mother’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate a mother’s many contributions to her family. Older mothers are especially treasured on Mother’s Day, since many of them are also grandmothers or great grandmothers.
There are the traditional Mother’s Day gifts like candy boxes or floral arrangements. However, buying a gift for a senior mother requires a bit more creativity.
The experts at Seniorstore.com, an online store offering an extensive selection of gifts for older adults, have these tips for choosing a Mother’s Day gift.
1) What are Mom’s special interests?
Try finding a Mother’s Day present related to their interest or hobby. For example, if Mom loves genealogy, consider a local genealogy class. If Mom likes baking, find a unique-shaped baking pan. Seniorstore.com also carries a Games for Seniors section where you can find large print activity books, large piece jigsaw puzzles and nostalgia games for seniors.
2) Does Mom have any physical limitations, e.g., low vision or arthritis?
As seniors age, they often struggle with low vision due to macular degeneration or glaucoma. Find practical gifts for mothers, such as a talking calculator or a large print address book. Seniorstore.com carries low vision gifts for seniors.
3) Would Mom enjoy a gift with a grandma or great grandma theme?
Some mothers love a gift that celebrates that they are a special grandma or great grandma. Try a “You Put the Grand in Grandmother” afghan, or a grandmother picture frame. Seniorstore.com carries a full line of grandmother gifts for grandma.
4). Does Mom like a personal touch? Give a personalized gift from the heart. At Seniorstore.com, you can give a mother a personalized birthday newspaper, celebrating events from the month she was born. Or a personalized poem for mom telling her what she means to you.
5) Is Mom a practical person, who likes gadgets to help around the house? Seniorstore.com offers independent living products to aid seniors, like laps desks, large button remotes, photo phones and more.
Of course, the best gift idea for mothers is your time. Remember to make time for Mom this Mother’s Day by calling or visiting.
