The older generation is genuinely jealous of the younger one – the children do not need to hide their faith in Santa Claus under serious seriousness. Children can fool around, dress up in carnival costumes, and in the morning – dive under the Christmas tree and shout loudly with delight, discovering presents there.
But we often forget that people of the older generation also need positive emotions, because in their souls many of them until gray hair remain boys and girls.
And have you already chosen a gift for mom for New Year 2017 ?
Presenting gifts to close people is a real ritual that gives a lot of positive emotions to everyone who participates in it.
Choosing a gift for an elderly person obliges you to take a closer look at purchases, think through all the options, stop at the most necessary and important thing.
Gift for New Year for the grandfather should tell him about your love and care, to give the warmth of your hands.
The best ideas of New Year’s gifts for our grandfathers:
- Give Grandpa warmth – both literally and figuratively. A gift in the form of a light warm rug made from natural wool, or a long cozy terry dressing gown will be very much in demand in the winter evenings, hug it for you, will constantly remind you of your attention and care for it. For a gift to the grandfather do not choose a thing of old-fashioned plain-looking coloring. Choose a “noble color” that will allow him to return in those years when he was a young dandy.
- If your grandfather likes to sit for a long time in front of the TV or on the terrace , you can give him something that he will never buy himself – a modern rocking chair , with a footrest. From the first minute this chair will be occupied by its satisfied owner. And believe me – your wise man, the good-natured “captain” will not give up his “captain’s bridge” even to his beloved grandchildren.
- Does your grandfather use a cane? Choose for a gift for the New Year a unique modern cane with illumination 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 this not the best gift for a holiday?
- As a rule, older people have back problems – it hurts and weather, and just like that, not allowing you to qualitatively relax, sleep, do your favorite thing. That your grandfather could have a nice shower and a useful gift to the body, choose for him an orthopedic pillow for the back, and maybe – and an orthopedic mattress for the bed. Believe me – from the purchase of many things the old people refuse 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 can not afford such an expensive thing. If the mattress is delivered to his home, you will first see a sincere surprise, and later – the joy of the fact that his back became less sick on the weather, allowing your grandfather to get enough sleep.
- If your grandfather is a true gourmet , very fond of trying delicacies and respecting quality products, on New Year’s Eve you can collect him a whole basket or a delicacy box by picking a set to his taste. Chest with food – so it was not only a tasty and useful gift, but also served as an entourage of New Year’s holidays – you can decorate in a “pirate” style, put there fish delicacies, a jar of caviar, quality sausages in vacuum packing, good tea. If the grandfather’s health allows – put a bottle of cognac, coffee, cigars in the chest. This set can be supplemented with a scattering of chocolate sweets in the form of coins, beautiful trinkets, a signature fountain pen and a notebook, a calendar with his photos.This “pirate” chest of the grandfather will delight, and do not hesitate – he will be pleased to regale the delicacies of you and all his guests, telling everyone about this wonderful gift.
- Continuing to talk about the category of health-giving gifts, you can mention such an important thing in every home thing, like water filter . Today in stores you can find these devices of any complexity and price level – from desktop jugs to the built-in multi-level cleaning system. A water filter will allow your grandfather to drink very tasty and healthy tea, and you – to be calm for the health of the native person.
- If your grandfather does not present his life without tools , constantly doing something, repairing, reworking, creating, choosing your gift can stop on things for his hobby. Give grandfather power tools, which he does not have – of course, before that, explore what exactly he needs. Very good gifts for skilled craftsmen are also professional quality sets for woodcarving, carpentry, embossing, and also convenient cases for storing all this “wealth.”
- Most men are very fond of fishing and hunting . Grandfather will really appreciate your gift, if he touches his greatest passion. In the store for hunters and fishermen you will be able to choose a quality and convenient spinning, a variety of fishing accessories , and maybe a waterproof pea coat for weather, rubber hunting boots with fur inserts, a folding chair and a table.
- If your grandfather is an avid motorist , you can please him with specially made headrests or covers on chairs with his name, a registered sub-number sign on the car. For the convenience of traveling by car, you can also buy a special vacuum cleaner for the salon , navigator , thermos mug . The gift can be supplemented with the repair of the grandfather’s car, washing the windows, replacing the “rubber” – it’s good, if at the same time you together with him pause in the garage, and at the same time and talk in a slow and sedate manner, like two experienced masters.
- A nice and very memorable gift for the grandfather – a holiday voucher for a sanatorium , or a ticket for a trip to relatives in another city, with whom he had not seen for a long time. Older people very often become “restricted”, because they can not afford the luxury of traveling. On the way to one grandfather will be uncomfortable – to go on a journey, of course, he must with your grandmother, or with his son, daughter, grandson. Such a trip will surely be remembered for 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 those places where your grandfather went.
