4 Sentimental Gifts to Give Your Senior this Holiday Season

|

From customized pillows and silly videos to writing down life-long memories in a journal, here are four sentimental gifts to give your favorite senior for an extra-special holiday season.

Street Map Pillow

Whether it’s the current city your senior resides in, the town where they were born and raised, or the city where they started a family, this pillow offers the perfect representation of a significant landmark in their life.

Engraved Cutting Board

Does your loved one have that generations-old recipe that everyone in the family relies on in the kitchen? This is a great way to memorialize a sentimental piece with a rather practical application. Not only can they refer to the recipe on this customized cutting board if they want to prepare it, but they can display this work of art in their home for endless memories of family gatherings and traditions.

Memory Journal

Perfect for the loved one that lives far from you or for those who you can’t see due to current world events, this memory journal is something you can fill out virtually with your loved one and send to them as a lovely sentimental, virtual gift for the holidays.

“Our Favorite Things About You” Video

Nothing will put a smile on your loved one’s face more than an incredibly personalized gift. Have a few of your senior’s closest friends and family members send you a quick video clip of them sharing their favorite things about your loved one. Clip them all together with iMovie or download a free smartphone app to combine each clip into one video.
