Below I’ve listed some great gift ideas for the baby boomer in your life – or a gift for yourself – that range in price from a $370 splurge for a mini iPad to $1.65 for a wool hat with a funny saying for Grandpa.
So, without further ado…
“TGIF This Grandma is Fabulous” Coffee Mug: Love this! Need I say more?
They Call Me Nana Because Partner in Crime Sounds Like a Bad Influence T-Shirt: Okay, this one made me laugh. Amazon has a wide variety of these shirts available for Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle, Aunt, etc.
I Still Get Carded (When I Ask for my Senior Citizen Discount) Mug: Ha, ha! When I went to a fair last year they asked for ID to prove I qualified for the senior discount. I thanked the lady profusely!
FOR BABY BOOMER TECHIES
Amazon Echo and Echo Dot: Many savvy baby boomers are crazy about this new technology with Smart speakers that feature a voice-activated assistant, Alexa, who hears you from a distance and follows your commands to do a variety of tasks. Instructions can include playing your favorite music, receiving weather and news updates, setting timers, or answering random questions. This technology is also great for those with physical disabilities. The Amazon Echo is normally priced at $99.99, but if you want to try this new technology out for a lot less, the Amazon Echo Dot has many of the same features and benefits for a much lower price – normally 49.99 (at the time of this writing, it was on sale for $29.99!). And the Echo is portable!
Senior-Friendly Fitness Tracker: A recent Brandeis University study notes that an estimated 20 percent of Americans own a fitness tracker, with increasing popularity among older adults. Those who are the least active get the most benefits. Fitness trackers are great for counting steps, measuring your heart rate, estimating your calorie expenditure, ensuring you’re getting enough exercise, and monitoring the quality of your sleep. Combined with online apps, you can also track your food and see how all these factors add up. You may want to check out The Fitbit Charge 2, pictured below, which is one of the bestselling fitness trackers and perfect for seniors since it’s easy to use, lightweight, and has a large easy-to-read screen.
