We're all a year older than we were last year, but statistics show that Americans are living longer than ever! We know that many of your gift recipients are family members and friends who have crossed that over-70 threshold. Shopping for those over 70 requires some creativity, but there are many amazing ideas that are not the cliched tie of yesteryear. Here are some of the best gift ideas for 70 year old woman who has everything.
Play it Forward with a Jolly Green Thumb
As we age, we subconsciously appreciate it when our loved ones don't think we are gifting based on life expectancy. In other words, a gift of Geritol or Ginkgo Biloba might be inconsiderate. This clever gift is practical and will be appreciated for its thoughtfulness. Gardening items let Grandma Inez know about her love of plants. She is sure to love it when you plant this popular Green Thumb Gardening Tote in her lap!
Aunt Frieda's Got a Brand-New Juice
Just because your loved one is over 70 doesn't mean she doesn't partake of a healthy glass of wine now and them. If Aunt Frieda doesn't partake in alcoholic beverages, there's still a good chance she enjoys an icy cold soft drink, juice, or coffee or tea from time to time. Consider gifting Aunt Frieda with a classy Morning Wake Up Coffee and Tea Gift to awaken her taste buds in the morning.
Help Aunt Matilda travel in style with Customized Cosmetic or Travel Bags
Customized items often give back to the giver all year -- sometimes for years to come. Just like we all love to hear our name being used, we also treasure our initials. Although women over 70 sometimes have plenty of bathing salts, fragrances, and decorative soaps, many of them do not have a treasured personalized cosmetic bag to hold all these goodies. Personalized items indicate that you have taken the time to remember Aunt Matilda's favorite color and middle name before you shop!
Let Your Gift Recipient "Sleep on It!"
Personalized gift ideas for 70 year old woman who has everything are some of the best gifts to give. Just like the personalized cosmetic bag, an item that never stops being useful for anyone is linens. Why not get your older sister and her husband matching pillowcases/slips that boast their names? The irony here is that neither of them can claim innocence if they are a pillow-grabber during those nighttime hours. In addition to initials, consider having their pillowcases with slogans or logos. Every time sister Tilda and brother-in-law Leroy hit the sheets, they will remember your kindness. That should be a good thing.
Mobilize your dear neighbor Paula by sending her to the movies or theater.
If your gift recipient is mobile and able to get out and around, gift certificates to a local movie theater or even local play theater will provide an impetus for your sweet friend to get out and do something. You might even choose you to go with her for those two hours of escapism into the world of fiction, complimented by popcorn and soft drinks. If she’s not mobile, catch a movie with her at home.
Gift Aunt Glenda something for her beloved pooch if you want to really touch her heart.
The fact that you know that Aunt Glenda treasures and pampers that precious poodle named Puddles -- even if it does try to bite your hand off any time you visit -- will rank high in Aunt Glenda's book. One of the best gift ideas for women 70 and older is to buy a gift for their beloved pet. Just make sure that the beloved pet does not have allergy issues or is on a special diet if you choose dog treats. You can avoid even that conundrum with a personalized pet product like this food bowl for Puddles that will put a great big smile on Glenda's face and pep in Puddle's step.
