For older adults who use mobility aids, a shiny new cane or walker is a wonderful and practical gift. We’re especially impressed by the clever design of the Free2Go Rollator.


Ensuring that senior men have access to reliable transportation is a wonderful gift

6. Delivery services and transportation

During this pandemic, many older adults are staying home to reduce the risk of exposure of Covid-19. Gift cards for these services are thoughtful and practical presents.

Grocery delivery is available from a variety of stores, including:


You could also give them a gift card for a local restaurant that’s currently offering home delivery.


And when they do need to leave the house, private transportation is less risky than public transport:

  • GoGoGrandparent gift card – This is an on-demand ride service that’s perfect for seniors who don’t use smartphones. No mobile apps are needed and a live person is always available to help.
  • Lyft or Uber gift card – On-demand rides are a convenient way for older adults to get where they need to go. Some senior organizations even offer concierge services that help seniors book rides.


Technology gifts that senior men will actually want to use

7. Daily luxuries

$35 Luxe Bidet Neo 120

  • With a bidet, your older adult won’t have to bend and twist to wipe after using the toilet. It’s hygienic and gentle on their delicate skin.


$250 SmartBidet SB-1000 Electric Bidet Seat with Heated Seat, Warm Air Dryer, and Temperature Controlled Wash

  • This bidet and heated seat gives a truly luxurious and comfortable toileting experience


Technology gifts that senior men will actually want to use

8. Technology they’ll actually want to use
Digital photo frames:

A digital photo frame is a wonderful way for older adults to easily view family photos. Many new frames even allow you to add new photos via email or through a mobile app.

Note: Some digital photo frames require a separate, low cost USB stick flash drive or SD memory card to hold the photos.


Smart digital photo frame with video calling:

Another great gift is the ViewClix Smart Frame. It’s a digital photo frame with video calling and an auto-answer mode. 

When auto-answer is set up, the older adult doesn’t need to do anything to receive a video call. This is especially helpful for making video calls to someone with dementia or who isn’t able to physically answer a call.

There’s a 10-inch screen size ($200) or 15-inch screen size ($300).

    Thank you!!!! My Grandpa is SO hard to shop for. I’ve handmade gifts, compiled stories he’s written and had all my cousins illustrate them and publish them in a book, got a Roku so he could watch more TV….. he doesn’t care. He hates everything. We had HIM buy his own presents last year, and then we reimbursed him for them. AND HE STILL TOOK THEM ALL BACK!!!!! The ones he picked out himself! I mean…. how do you shop for someone who hates everything?!
    Anyway, this year, my mom & I were like, “Screw it. We’re googling what to buy a Senior Citizen and getting whatever it says.” ;’D But we didn’t expect the ideas to be so good or so specific to him! We got the blanket and the bidet. I’m sure he’ll say he hates the blanket (bc he hates everything), but I think if we plug it in by his recliner he won’t be able to unplug it and will begrudgingly use it. 🙂

      You’re welcome! We’re so glad our suggestions are helpful. Your Grandpa sounds like a tough person to get a gift for. It’s wonderful that you and your mom try so hard to get him a gift that he’ll enjoy – that alone shows how much you care. We hope he’ll enjoy the gifts you chose this year!
