In two weeks, Christmas will be over, which means that all over the world people are scrambling to acquire the remaining items on their gift list. As you may imagine, that means a lot of running around and fighting crazy lines. For those who wish to avoid the chaos and confusion, the Internet browser beckons with the option of online shopping.
One of the strengths of Internet shopping is that there are niche websites for every possible interest, and, in our case, we focus on unique gifts for boomers and older adults. If you are still looking for gifts for your mom, dad, or grandparents, then some of these ideas might help.
If you’re looking for an easier way to get an older relative online, then the WOW! Computer for Seniors is worth checking out. The touch-screen with integrated magnification (up to 200%) makes this entry-level computer a breeze to operate and its simplified operating system alleviates the confusion of too many extraneous options. Even better is the fact that you can simply plug it in, start it up, and go! No complicated setup with this machine.
Many of us have trouble getting a decent night’s rest as we get older, so sometimes the best holiday gift you can give is a good night’s sleep. From items designed to help you cool down and get better sleep, like The Cool Pad and Cooling Gel-Top Pillow, to Memory Foam Mattress Toppers, there are plenty of gift-appropriate sleep aids for the insomniacs in your circle.
Fading visual acuity is a challenge we all face over time, but it can be especially harsh to face for avid readers and bibliophiles, not to mention that it can make day-to-day life a lot more troublesome. A variety of magnifiers are out there, but, for pure usefulness, the Lighted Full Page Reading Magnifier really stands out. Since it uses LEDs, it doesn’t get hot like other lights, and the flexible goose-neck design allows you to use it hands-free.
As years go by, we value mobility more and more. In many cases, staying mobile means getting some exercise, and it is those people who will truly love the Freedom Adult Tricycle. Its design prevents balance issues from being a problem, while the combination of hand and foot breaks assures additional safety. A icing on the cake, it folds up for easy transportation, so you can take it along on vacation.
Of course, these days everyone is on a budget, times being what they are. For those feeling the constraints of our economy, I’d like to point out that firstSTREET offers a wide variety of creative and unique gifts for under $100.
It’s getting close to the wire, so remember, firstSTREET offers expedited shipping so that your gift can arrive on time!
