Most men over the age of 70 can enjoy a leisurely retirement. As a result, they now have the time and opportunity to embark on vacations, take up new hobbies and simply relax during the day. As they begin to reflect upon their long lives, men in their 70s may also become more sentimental.
With more free time on their hands, men in their 70s can enjoy playing a host of games. Such items as crossword and Sudoku puzzles, in either booklet or electronic form, can entertain people for hours on end. By helping to maintain an active brain, some of these games can also help reduce the odds of acquiring a debilitating disease such as Alzheimer's. You may also consider purchasing a chess or draughts set, as high-end editions add an air of sophistication to most homes.
Some major newspapers, such as The New York Times, offer reprints for order. You can request a newspaper from someone's date and year of birth, an especially impressive gift if the person was born on a historic date. The gift giver can then frame the newspaper for an added bit of class. Many greeting card companies feature lines highlighting the year someone was born, including such information as No. 1 movies, songs and television shows.
Retro Music Players
For a bit of retro fun, you may consider giving a record player, especially if the recipient held on to his old LP and EP collections. Retro music players may also offer the aesthetic charm of an old-fashioned radio and phonograph but feature such modern applications as CD or MP3 player plug-ins and docking stations. As an added bonus, consider including CDs by such classic artists as Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman or Ella Fitzgerald.
It's not unusual to have a few aches and pains at the end of a long week, a statement that remains especially true for those in their 70s. As a result, the recipient may appreciate a relaxation kit featuring such items as bath salts, massage oils or an electronic massage chair or pillow. Some non-electronic neck pillows can be heated in the microwave for added sense of comfort. They may also feature floral scents as a type of aromatherapy.
