What to know when buying ?
Just because one is an elderly person does not mean one does not like to look good anymore. There are many options of clothing and comfortable shoes you can give to someone turning 70. You can buy them some leather loafers with a wool interior. These are both fashionable and realistic. The loafers can give them warmth and comfort all while looking good at the same time. For a man try buying some comfortable slacks. Pants that have nice colours like dark green or brown that are comfortable to wear.
For an elderly woman buy a nice long skirt. That way she can be protected from the cold. Also buy her some nice and warm wool stockings. Women never lose their fashion sense and style. Buy your grandmother a nice hat, or something nice to wear on her hair.
A gift that can also be great for both men and woman is a trip to a place of their youth. Most senior citizens do not get to travel often. Many senior citizens stay home alone while everyone goes to work or goes on with their daily life. It seems as if everyone forgets about them. So for this especial occasion treat the person to a special trip. Chances are they have some good memories from their youth. This is your opportunity to give back to the people that have done so much for you.
Remember it’s always the thought that counts. No matter what you give them you will never fail if you give them something with good intentions. People have the need to be wanted and appreciated. So when you deliver your present, give them a big smile, a hug and say happy birthday.
