The older generation is sincerely jealous of the younger – children do not need to hide their faith in Santa Claus under feigned seriousness. Children can fool around, dress up in carnival costumes, and in the morning – dive under the Christmas tree and shout loudly with delight when they find gifts there.
But we often forget that older people also need positive emotions, because in their hearts many of them remain boys and girls until their gray hairs.
Have you already chosen a present for your mom for the New Year?
Giving gifts to loved ones is a real ritual that gives a huge amount of positive emotions to everyone who participates in it.
Choosing a gift for an elderly person obliges you to pay more attention to purchases, to think over all the options, to focus on the most necessary and important thing.
A New Year’s gift for grandfather should tell him about your love and care, give the warmth of your hands.
The best New Year gift ideas for our grandfathers:
- Give your grandfather warmth – both literally and figuratively. Gift in the form of a lung warm blanket from natural wool, or long cozy terry robe will be in great demand on winter evenings, they will hug him for you, they will constantly remind you of your attention and care for him. For a gift to your grandfather, do not choose a thing of an old man’s nondescript colors. Choose a “noble color” that will allow him to return to his days as a young dandy.
- If your grandfather likes to sit in front of the TV or on the terrace for a long time. You can give him something that he will never buy himself – modern rocking chair, with a footrest. From the first minute this chair will be occupied by its satisfied owner. And believe me – your wise, good-natured “captain” will not yield to his “captain’s bridge” even to your beloved grandchildren.
- Does your grandfather use a cane? Choose a unique modern backlit cane roads – these have already appeared on sale. At dusk, your grandfather will move without fear – the backlight will allow him to see the road, and he will never stumble. Your timely concern for the health and safety of an elderly person is not the best gift for the holiday?
- Typically, older people have back problems – it hurts both on the weather, and just like that, not allowing quality rest, sleep, doing what you love. So that your grandfather could have a gift that is pleasant to the soul and useful to the body, choose for him orthopedic pillow for the back, and maybe – and orthopedic mattress on the bed. Believe me, old people refuse to buy many things, not because they do not like innovations, but more often for a banal reason – they do not have enough money for them. Perhaps your grandfather helps you, his children and grandchildren, so he cannot afford such an expensive thing. If the mattress is delivered to him at home, you will see at first a sincere surprise, and later – joy that his back has become less painful in the weather, allowing your grandfather to sleep well.
- If your grandfather is a true gourmet, loves to try delicacies and respects high-quality products, for the New Year you can put together a whole basket for him or small chest of delicaciesby choosing a set according to his taste. A box with dishes – so that it is not only a tasty and useful gift, but also serves as an entourage of New Year’s holidays – you can decorate it in a “pirate” style, put fish delicacies, a jar of caviar, high-quality vacuum-packed sausages, good tea there. If grandfather’s health allows, put a bottle of cognac, coffee, cigars in the chest. This set can be supplemented with a scattering of chocolates in the form of coins, beautiful key chains, a branded fountain pen and a notebook, a calendar with his photographs. Such a “pirate” chest will delight grandfather, and do not hesitate – he will gladly regale you and all his guests with delicacies, telling everyone about this wonderful gift.
- Continuing to talk about the category of healthy gifts, we can mention such an important thing in every home as a water filter. Today in stores you can find these devices of any level of complexity and price category – from tabletop jugs to a built-in multilevel cleaning system. A water filter will allow your grandfather to drink delicious and healthy tea, and you will be calm about the health of your loved one.
- If your grandfather cannot imagine his life without tools, constantly makes something, repairs, remodels, creates, the choice of your gift may focus on things for his hobby. Present your grandfather with power tools that he does not have – of course, before that, find out what exactly he needs. Professional quality sets for woodcarving, carpentry, chasing, as well as convenient cases for storing all this “wealth” are also very good gifts for craftsmen.
- Most men are very fond of fishing and hunting.… Grandpa will truly appreciate your gift if it touches his greatest passion. The shop for hunters and fishermen will help you choose a high-quality and comfortable spinning rod, various fishing accessories, and maybe – a waterproof pea jacket for bad weather, rubber hunting boots with fur inserts, a folding chair and table.
- If your grandfather is an avid car enthusiast, You can please him with specially made head restraints or chair covers with his name, inscribed sub-number on the car. For the convenience of traveling by car, you can also buy a special vacuum cleaner for salon, navigator, thermos mug… The gift can be supplemented by repairing grandfather’s car, washing windows, replacing the “rubber” – it’s good if you tinker with him in the garage, and at the same time have a leisurely and sedate conversation, like two experienced craftsmen.
- A good and very memorable gift for grandfather – a vacation ticket to a sanatorium, or a ticket for a trip to visit relatives in another city, with whom he has not seen for a long time. Elderly people very often become “restricted to travel abroad” because they cannot afford the luxury of travel. On the road, one grandfather will feel uncomfortable – he must, of course, set off with your grandmother, or with a son, daughter, or grandson. Such a trip will surely be remembered by him, and you will complement your gift with a wonderful memorable photo album about this event, present him with a picture with beautiful views of the places where your grandfather went.
Do not forget to also choose the right and sincere gift for the New Year for your grandmother!
We all know that our life consists of small moments that come together.
If there are as many happy moments in your grandfather’s life as possible, he will delight you for many, many years with his wise advice and fortitude.
Surely in childhood, you more than once climbed on his knees and listened to interesting stories, fairy tales, feeling happy and protected. It’s time to return attention to the one who gave you the brightest childhood memories and happy carelessness.
One last tip – never give your grandfather money. Banknotes of any denomination carry a value strictly determined by the Treasury, and never love, care and attention.
And – do not deprive yourself of the opportunity to bring joy to a loved one personally!
