Elderly men and women enjoy gifts of comfort that ease their daily struggles with pain, loneliness and other issues associated with growing older. For a gift that will help to improve the self-esteem of elderly friends and neighbours, consider a set of soft pyjamas, a pair of fuzzy slippers and a simple beauty bag. Your elderly friend will feel good about himself or herself and feel loved.


Shadowline pyjamas are a comfortable, silky option for older women. Made of nylon, these pajama sets are popular among elderly women. They are available in a variety of styles and colours. Also available are matching housecoats. If you cannot find Shadowline pyjamas at your area department store, then choose any pair of pyjamas that are soft, warm and durable.

Socks and Slippers

Many elderly people complain about cold feet. Warm up toes and keep feet comfortable with a pair of soft, warm socks or bedroom slippers. Chenille and wool are great options. Also, consider a pair of non-slip socks, which will keep feet warm but also help make sure they stay on the ground when an elderly person gets up to walk around.

Beauty Bag

Many elderly women no longer feel beautiful or wanted. Change their affect and remind them of their beauty with a simple beauty bag. Fill a cosmetic bag that you can purchase at a chemist or large chain general supply store with a pastel nail polish (elderly women often are fans of soft colours), a blush, a powder compact, a neutral lipstick and a long strand of pretty costume jewellery.
