Christmas Gifts for Seniors
In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some common holiday gifts that many people will typically consider for a senior in their life. As the holidays quickly approach, many of us are looking for gifts for loved ones and friends, and those who count seniors among these individuals have many different options at their disposal.

At Avamere at Mountain Ridge, we’re happy to provide quality assisted living community programs for seniors in Ogden and other parts of Utah. The holidays are an important time in our communities, and we help our guests celebrate and take advantage of this time of year however we can. Here are some additional ideas for great holiday gifts for any senior in your life.

Gifts of shared experience

One of the most meaningful gift types that many seniors can receive is a shared experience. This can come in the form of tickets for them and their family or friends to attend a movie, show, or other event. Depending on mobility and comfort level, you could also consider activities like kayaking, rock climbing, or even fishing.

Another option is a gift that reminds them of a past shared experience. Pictures, memorabilia, and other tangible reminders of past experiences can be a great way to remind them of the special times they spent with the people in their life.

Subscription boxes or services

Another great idea for a holiday gift is a subscription box or service. Subscription boxes are great because they offer seniors access to products and services that they may not have been able to enjoy in the past. From food-related subscriptions to craft kits and more, there are plenty of options available when it comes to giving the perfect gift.

Consider creating your own subscription box or service as a gift. For example, you could find an online recipe delivery service and sign them up for weekly meal kits. Or you could find a magazine subscription that is tailored to their interests and send it on a regular basis.

Blankets or other comfort items

Finally, if you’re having some trouble finding a great gift, virtually everyone of every age can appreciate a cozy blanket, comfortable slippers, or other comfort items. These gifts are always warmly received, and they can often be used for years to come. You could even consider taking it one step further by personalizing the gift with their name or initials.

No matter what you decide is the right gift, make sure you take the time to show your loved ones that you care by giving them something special. We hope that this blog series has provided you with some great ideas for finding the perfect gift for any senior in your life.
