Gift Ideas for Seniors

The holidays are upon us! It’s time to hang your stockings by the chimney, decorate the tree, bake gingerbread cookies, and (of course) buy gifts for your loved ones. Do you need a unique gift for an older adult in your life? Our list of gift ideas for seniors will help you find the perfect present to make them smile.

Spruce Up Your Holiday Shopping with These Gift Ideas for Seniors

Do you find it challenging to buy gifts for the seniors in your life? If you do, don’t worry because we’re here to help. Plenty of fun, valuable, and enjoyable gifts on the market can improve your senior loved one’s life in all kinds of ways they’ll appreciate. If you don’t know where to start, let our gift ideas for seniors lead the way.

ViewClix SmartFrame

Smart frames can share a rotating variety of beloved photos with minimal set-up and maintenance. The ViewClix SmartFrame is a popular choice for seniors because it integrates the ability to make video calls into the smart frame experience. It also includes options that make it an excellent device for those with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, like an “auto-answer” option for pre-approved friends and family. The ViewClix SmartFrame can help your senior loved one relive some great memories — or make new ones!

Custom Photo Blankets

A blanket is a perfect gift to help a loved one stay warm and cozy over the cold winter months. If you want to give your senior loved one something unique, get a custom photo blanket made for them. You can use pictures of friends, family, or a shared memory you treasure. They’ll love being reminded of you whenever they get cozy on the couch.

Large-Format Playing Cards

Card games can be a great way to spend time with a senior loved one. Unfortunately, if they have age-related vision problems, those cards can be challenging to read. The good news is that large-format playing cards can keep your senior loved one in the game. Buy a pack or two as stocking stuffers for the seniors in your life, and see if they’re up for a game on your next visit.

RAZ Memory Phone

Do you want to be sure your senior loved one can reach their friends and family no matter what? Or do you want to ensure they have a way to get help in the case of an emergency? If you want a gift for your senior loved one to give you peace of mind, the RAZ Memory Phone is here for you. With one-tap photo-based calling and other features tailored to senior communication needs, it’s the perfect way to ensure your senior loved one can stay connected to the world.

Bingo Night

One of the best gifts you can get a senior loved one is one of the simplest things you can do: spend time with them this holiday season. You can make your visit an event with a deluxe bingo night set that includes a rotary bingo cage, old-fashioned bingo cards, and markers. Get together a group of family or friends, pick out a fun prize, and prepare to make some new holiday memories!


We hope these gift ideas for seniors make your season merry and bright. Happy holidays!
