Recently, this blog featured some great gift ideas for seniors. As we enter holiday shopping crunchtime, Bethany Village is pleased to present a few more options for your gift list.

c25e9b714dc6bebd1e9d552ff5ec910bWhile there are some consumer items that make great gifts for seniors, it seems the most popular gift for the holidays…is you.

How do you give the gift of you? Simple, consider these ideas:

  • Create a scrapbook of photos of your family and go over the memories together.
  • Clean your favorite senior’s home for them. Who doesn’t love working in a sparking kitchen?
  • Be a handyman (or woman!) – Fix leaky faucets, clean gutters, clear snow. Anything to make life a little easier for that senior in your life.
  • Make a mix CD. Legally download some favorite tracks and include some you personally love as well. Share a conversation over the changes in music from one decade to the next.

These are just a few ideas to give the gift of “you.” Remember, Christmas isn’t about giving the hottest, most expensive electronic on the market. It’s about sharing memories and cherishing time together.

What gift are you giving a favorite senior this holiday season?
