Choosing a Father’s Day gift for a senior loved one does not have to be a pain. With some planning and knowing what they love, you’ll find just the right present for man you want to honor this Father’s Day. Whether this is for an active senior or an item to make their life easier, there is something for everyone! Take a look at the following gift ideas North Star Senior Advisors has in store to surprise your senior loved one on this special day.
If your dad or loved one has a sweet tooth, consider ordering a gift basket of fruit, chocolate or anything they enjoy! Edible Arrangements prepares delicious fresh fruit with some that are chocolate dipped in a decorative vase. Plus, they are gorgeous to look at. They can deliver to any door so if you happen to not live nearby, they will take care of this for you. You can also order any kind of dessert or their favorite food from any place online and get it delivered.
Clothing is always a good choice for someone special. Most stores offer gift receipts to return or exchange the item within a certain time. There’s the option of a gift card as well so dad can choose the gift they desire. Cozy slippers are a great idea, who doesn’t love a nice pair to lounge around the house in? A nice buttoned down shirt or khaki shorts to match also goes a long way. My dad insists any shirt I buy for him must have a pocket to hold his phone, pens and any other items. Find out what they love most make it special.
Gifts to Make Life Easier
When it comes to helping your dad, think about the little gadgets that will enhance their everyday living. Consider things like magnifiers for when glasses do not do the trick to help make out labels, coupons (my dad loves to cut out coupons every day), watches or even clocks. This brings me to another gift idea, a big display alarm clock or if you’re feeling extra fancy, look into a smart clock that can talk to you, set reminders, call people and of course what they were originally made to do, set the alarm.
Acts of Service Gifts
If you live far from dad or are unable to swing by on a daily basis, hiring help can be a wonderful gift idea. This can include someone to come in and help with household chores, buy groceries, arrange for someone to mow the lawn, or anything else will take some duties off your senior loved one. Join Angie’s List, a free service that helps you find the best company in your area to locate one of the above-mentioned errand running services.
Whatever you decide to choose as a Father’s Day Gift for your senior dad, make sure it’s something you know he’ll love. But whatever it is, the present will be special in his eyes as it’s always the thought that counts!
