Men over 70 still appreciate thoughtful Christmas gifts. By not lumping your loved one into a particular group and giving your present some thought, you can show him how much you care. Celebrate the season with him by considering these gift ideas.
Let him create new memories with a season pass to something he loves to do, such as sporting events or even the zoo. Many museums and other cultural centres offer grandparent memberships that allow up to 10 grandchildren free admission when accompanied by the grandparent.
Showcase the memories of the past with framed photos, mementos or custom made DVDs.
Fill a large jar with strips of coloured paper that have individual memories or trivia written on them. This is an excellent gift for children or grandchildren to give to a relative over 70. Recalling fun times and the lessons that made an impact on his life is a priceless gift.
Food and Comfort
A gift of his favourite food is always appreciated. Consider looking for novelty candy from his childhood and filling a small wagon with it for a surprise treat.
Special cookies, a mug with hot cocoa and an audio book make a comforting gift. Package all together with a fleece blanket for a cosy present, or replace the mug with a travel mug and an accessory for his car to make driving more comfortable.
Men over 70 who attend sporting events appreciate seat warmers and sweatshirts with the team name on them. Make it a personalised shirt for more impact.
Pay for a masseuse to come to his home. Many men won't step foot in a spa, but seniors benefit from regular massages.
Time and Service
Gift tokens to clean his house or maintain his yard are helpful and provide a way to stay close. If this would make him uncomfortable, take him out for breakfast once a month instead or set up a regular card playing night.
Take over Christmas decorating for him as an early Christmas present, then be sure to come back after the holidays to put everything away.
