Music Gifts

Some senior citizens will enjoy a music-related gift for a Christmas present. For an active senior citizen, treat her to a Christmas musical. Your local community centre or playhouse likely hosts Christmas-related musicals. Offer to go with the person for company. Give a homebound senior two musical tapes so she can close her eyes and imagine she's at the theatre.

Bedroom Gifts

Give the senior citizen a comfortable bedroom gift. Throw blankets can help a senior experience warmth on a cool evening. When purchasing a throw blanket, avoid materials that would require a try to the dry cleaners. Another bedroom gift includes a nightstand table lamp. The table lamp acts as second bedroom light.

Food Gift

If you are unsure about the senior citizen's eating habits, give a food-related gift token. Ask about the nearby supermarkets. Some senior citizens do not drive, so make sure the certificate offers convenience. Supermarkets can offer more than food, such as flowers. See if the local bakery accepts gift tokens. This will allow the senior citizen to enjoy fresh breads.

Backyard Gifts

A senior citizen who enjoys the backyard can appreciate a gift geared towards the space. A set of wind chimes offers a relaxing backyard gift. The chimes act as background noise when reading, barbecuing or hosting a party. Offer to help plant some flowers. You can bond with the senior citizen, plus get exercise while planting the flowers.

Homemade Gifts

Offer a homemade gift to the senior citizen. You can make a homemade Christmas wreath for the front door. Other homemade gifts include baked goods like nut bread, apple-cinnamon cookies and fudge brownies. These homemade gifts can help make a senior feel special.
