A House Gadget
A tell-tale sign of aging is not just creaky knees, it is also the seemingly overnight fascination with household gadgets. Do you remember being this excited about a hoover before? No. Are you concerned about how happy you are that you have used a steam cleaner for the first time and are so impressed you have written a Facebook status about it? Yes.
Get your aging loved one a gift you know they will love, or have secretly been looking at for a while. Disclaimer—this is not an appropriate gift for a loved one unless they have asked for it. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.
A Luxury Treat
If your loved one has their eye on a pair of Gucci shoes or a bag that costs the same as your month’s rent, first think about if you can afford them, and then go forth and make their day. If you cannot afford to get them a gift that they truly want, then why not contribute to it? They will most likely not need any more encouragement to go and treat themselves, and you could remind them they are not getting any younger for good measure.
