Information verified correct on December 3rd, 2016

Here’s what to buy when it’s the thought that counts.

Elderly people have seen many Christmases and received many Christmas gifts. So how do you pick a present that stands out? Well, it really is the thought that counts. Candles, chocolates and books might seem like mundane gifts, but they can be perfect if you make them personal. Try finding their favourite boutique chocolates, a designer-scented candle or a hardcover classic novel.

Here are some fantastically thoughtful presents for the retiree or grandparent in your life.


Best online shops to find Christmas gifts for the elderly


Hand and Body Lotions

A nourishing hand cream is a thoughtful and useful gift for an elder. These shea butter creams from L’Occitane are certified organic and are attested fair trade. You can feel good about supporting these luxury creams.


Chocolates

Who doesn’t love chocolate, especially around the holidays?


Candles

A beautiful scented candle is a great gift idea for the older, house-proud generation.


Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles are a great activity when you have lots of free time. Plus, they are a great family activity for grandparents and grandkids.


Whisky

A fine bottle of whisky makes for a classy gift.


Cookbooks

Cookbooks make great gifts for elderly people who love socialising over food.


Golf Accessories

It’s no secret that retirees love to golf. These gifts are perfect for an avid golfer.


A Cruise

If you really want to splurge, a cruise is the way to go. This is a thoughtful gift that will forge lifelong memories.


Hardback Classics

Why not gift a hardcover copy of a well-loved classic? A beautifully designed hardcover book works as a decor accessory as well as a treasured read.
