Gifts for Seniors
Old Lives Matter Whiskey Glass

QardioArm Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor
While health maintenance is essential for the senior in your life, trips to the doctor’s office are a nuisance few take pleasure in. If you can’t convince your loved one to visit a professional in person, ensure that they’re still taking care of themselves with the gift trusted by healthcare professionals. Qardio is a blood pressure monitor that a person can work for themselves from the comfort of home: track blood pressure, heartbeat irregularities, and more over time via the corresponding Smartphone app and trust that your loved one’s health is in good hands – their own.

If your loved one is struggling to sleep in their senior years, the problem might not be them at all, but their pillow! The Coop Home pillow is a gold-certified gift that opens eyes to how comfortable a little shut-eye can be. Fresh, cruelty-free filling in a polyester pillowcase provides complete customization and support to every restless sleeper, ensuring a refreshing rest that truly refreshes the mind and mitigates the pains off again.

PhotoSpring Cloud Digital Picture Frame
When distance keeps your senior from seeing family and friends in person, gifts that keep them feeling close are essential.

FootMatters Expander Shoe Horn
For many seniors, going out is not the issue – preparing to go out is what keeps them from living to the fullest. As we age, many find once-easy tasks like slipping into their shoes becomes an impossibly painful task. If a loved one refuses to take the loss of their mobility sitting down, this shoehorn is the ideal gift to preserve their well-earned independence. An extendable handle that locks into place allows seniors to guide their feet into their shoes without needing to bend over, allowing them to prepare for a day out with the same independence and freedom that they’ve always known.
Wood Finish LED Indoor Garden
Whether space or mobility keeps your senior from cultivating the garden of their dreams, it’s about time you made those dreams a reality nonetheless. An indoor garden allows the elderly to plant all their favorite herbs and vegetables at last, even without ready access to a vast backyard space. Integrated LED lighting on a 16-hour time does the job of the sun, allowing indoor potted plants to flourish just as they would outdoors. No extra equipment is required to get the little greenhouse up and running, just a senior gifted with a green thumb and a selection of seeds that they’re prepared to grow into something great.
Family Word Game

The simple gameplay ensures that Bananagrams is a fun, approachable game for up to 8 players at a time, meaning the whole family can get in on the anagram decoding fun simultaneously.
Electronic Talking Bible
Your senior’s faith might not diminish with age, but their ability to sit down with the bible certainly might. For those religious individuals that fear feeling out of touch with the holy book, the Talking Bible provides them with the scriptures through speech, not the written word. The electronic holy bible comes preloaded with the King James Version of the bible already recorded on the pocket-sized audio player; Unlike traditional tapes, though, the audio on this recorder can’t be replaced or deleted by an accidental button press. Their faith is important to them, so make sure the seniors can always find the guidance they need with a gift that, like their God, will never leave their side.
Healthy Seniors Chair Exercise Program
The elderly might not be used to meeting resistance, but a little now and again can be just the thing they need to feel their best. Remaining healthy and strong means working your muscles, so gift your senior a workout specifically suitable to their own skill and strength level. While traditional workout equipment is geared towards younger audiences that want the most from every workout, Resistance bands meet your loved ones where they are and aim to safely and effectively workout their muscles. Each routine is detailed in the accompanying guidebook, so the seniors will know just how to achieve the best results without damaging their bodies in the process.
