Just because our parents & grandparents aren’t as hip & cool as they once were doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy the newest and coolest gadgets. And as they start to reach their senior years, it’s only natural that we become concerned for their safety. So, when looking for a cool & unique gift idea, it’s nice to find something that we know will make their life easier and safer (and that they’ll actually enjoy).
Our staff recently got together and compiled a list of 10 unique gifts for seniors that have received very positive consumer reviews.
Cami Secret: $9.99 Camisoles are a fashion accessory for women of all ages. But having that extra layer of clothing can be uncomfortable in warmer months. The Cami Secret very easily attaches to the bra strap underneath any top and gives that fashionable look without the extra layers.
Handy Bar: $24.99 Laws of nature can’t be denied. Our bodies lose strength & mobility as we grow older and getting in and out of our vehicles becomes more of a challenge. The Handy Bar is a personal support handle that makes it easier for seniors to get in & out of their car. The Handy Bar also serves as a seat-belt cutter & window-break device in the event of an accident.
Twin Draft Guard: $9.99 Even newer homes can feel drafty in the wintertime. And for seniors on a fixed-budget, a drafty home can quickly eat into a budget. Just one Twin Draft Guard can cut a heating bill by as much as 30%. Twin Draft Guard is a double-sided, under the door/window insulator guard that stops heat from escaping & keeps cool air from “drafting” through the home.
Kangaroo Keeper: $9.99 Most women, no matter the age, have more than one purse or handbag. And life is cluttered enough without having to transfer every little thing from purse to purse. The Kangaroo Keeper is a handbag organizer with pockets for every little knick-knack a woman needs to carry. And when she has the urge to switch purses, she can just lift it out and insert the Kangaroo Keeper into the other purse.
Cool Touch Microwave Bowl: $9.99 It’s dangerous for anyone to remove a freshly-heated bowl from the microwave. Every year, thousands of seniors have to be treated for small burns for this reason. The Cool Touch Microwave Bowl insulates whatever bowl of food you may be cooking & the unique, ergonomic handle makes it much safer to remove from the microwave.
TV Listener Wireless Headphones: $49.99 Hearing loss eventually affects most seniors. And arguing about the TV volume is no way to spend an evening. The TV Listener Wireless Headphones allows one person to independently listen to the TV at his/her own personal volume, without having to adjust the sound on the TV. And the TV Listener can be used with a hearing aid.
Touch n Brush: $19.99 If you’ve seen the Touch n Brush on TV, then you know what a great invention it is for kids. But the Touch n Brush has been a huge hit for seniors as well, since Arthritis can make even squeezing a tube of toothpaste a painful challenge. Touch n Brush is a hands-free toothpaste dispenser that mounts to any bathroom surface.
Safety Grip Handle: $12.99 One of the biggest health risks for seniors in the home is slips & falls in the tub or shower. The Sure Grip Safety Handle prevents dangerous slips & falls by latching to the tub/shower surface. It can easily be removed and re-positioned anywhere for versatility.
Mattress Genie: $99 – $149 Research has shown that as we age, a good night’s sleep is more difficult. Just a few of the sleep problems seniors and older adults face is back & hip pain, respiratory problems, night cramps, arthritis pain & heart conditions. Adjustable beds have been proven to be effective at easing most of these conditions & helping older adults rest better. The Mattress Genie turns any type of mattress into an adjustable bed and is a great alternative to expensive adjustable beds.
Stealth Secret Sound Amplifier: $29.99 Another great item to address hearing loss, the Stealth Secret Sound Amplifier is cleverly designed as a cell-phone earpiece for seniors who have a stigma about wearing a hearing aid.
