Father’s Day gift ideas for the elderly

As Father’s Day approaches you will no doubt be trying to come up with a gift idea that shows how much you care and that your dad will appreciate, however, as dad’s get older choosing gifts becomes harder and harder.

Usually they have everything they need and there’s not often anything in particular they really want, so it can be tricky, which is why we’ve put together some gift suggestions to help you:

Magazine subscription

If your dad has a particular interest or hobby, why not buy him a subscription to a magazine all about it?

DVD Boxset

If your dad has a favourite show from his younger days, you could get him a DVD boxset of it so he can have a chance to re-watch and relive some treasured memories.

Digital photo frame

Being surrounded by family photos can be a real comfort so a digital photo frame is a great idea for a Father’s Day gift. It will rotate all of your dad’s favourite images on a timer, saving space on shelves and mantelpieces for other items.

Large print playing cards

If your dad is a card player then large print cards are a great idea as they are easy to see and read. Playing card games is a great way to keep the mind active too and you could always play a couple of games with him, getting in some of that important quality time together.
