3 Perfect and Practical Holiday Gifts for Older Adults

Now that the holiday shopping season is in full swing, many of you may be wondering what the perfect gifts are for the older adults on your list. To give you some ideas, here are there perfect and practical holiday gifts for older adults so good, you’ll want to keep them for yourself!

1.) Pain Relief: For some Arizona retirees and active adults, the cooler temperatures of winter bring with it more aches, strains, and arthritic pains. So why not give the gift of pain relief to someone you love? TheraPearl produces a line of different cold/heat relief products to chill in freezer for analgesic cold or pop in the microwave for penetrating heat. You can find TheraPearl products at Walmart, Target and Dick’s Sporting Goods as well as on their website.

2. Senior Smartphone: Want the active adult in your life to stay more connected? Consider the gift of a smartphone. The Jitterbug phone, made by GreatCall, has a new smartphone designed with older adults in mind. The Touch3 phone by Samsung features an easy-to-see touch screen, simplified menu with large, legible letters and a full-size onscreen keyboard. Besides traditional cell phone capability to talk and take pictures, the Touch3 can access GreatCall’s 5-Star service to summon emergency help by using the phone’s GPS. Touch3’s Urgent Care app enables users to speak with nurses and doctors without traveling to a medical office or making a copayment. Shoppers can find this little gem at Walmart, Sears, Radio Shack, Fry’s Electronics and other retailers or on their website.

3.) Floor Cleaning Robots: Have a neat freak in your life that loves to clean, but suffers from knee pain, back pain, arthritis, or other ailments that keep them from enjoying tidying their floors? A Roomba vacuuming robot makes a wonderful gift! Designed to clean carpet and as well as hard surface flooring, the Roomba vacuuming robot has sensors on the bottom enabling it to maneuver around furniture, objects, people or pets. This powerful battery-operated vacuum pulls out dirt, dust and pet hair. You can pick up one of these amazing gadgets at Kohls, Fry’s Electronics, Bed, Bath, & Beyond, Target, Best Buy, and online here.

Here’s hoping you find the perfect gifts for the Arizona retirees and active adults in your life. And if you or someone you know is in the market to buy a home in one of our many Arizona retirement communities this holiday season, please contact Sharon Mason today!
