It’s no secret that, as we get older, staying warm becomes more of a challenge—especially in the winter.
Age-related changes in body composition, dietary and lifestyle habits, and certain medications can all make it difficult for seniors to fight the cold.
But with a little help from the items below, your elderly friend or loved one will find it easy to stay nice and toasty.
Check out our list of seven holiday gifts to keep seniors warm this season:
1. The Calming Cozy Vibrating Heated Footrest
They don’t call it the Calming Cozy for nothing.
This all-in-one blanket, vibrating foot massager, and heated footrest by Sharper Image will take your elderly loved one to new levels of warmth and comfort.
The blanket is lined with lavishly soft velveteen and Sherpa to warm their legs and torso…
The footrest features three different heat settings and contains heat-absorbing clay beads, so their feet will never get cold…
And they’ll have three relaxing massage modes to choose from, so they can customize their Calming Cozy experience to their liking.
2. The Numi World of Tea Gift Set
The Numi World of Tea Gift Set is the perfect choice for the tea-loving senior in your life.
It features nine different flavors from all around the world, including:
- Aged Earl Grey (Italy)
- Breakfast Blend (India and Sri Lanka)
- Chamomile Lemon (Egypt)
- Golden Chai (India)
- Gunpowder Green (China)
- Jasmine Green (China)
- Mate Lemon (Brazil)
- Moroccan Mint (Egypt)
- Rooibos (South Africa)
And with five bags of each flavor, your senior will have forty-five delicious, piping-hot cups of tea to keep them nice and warm this winter.
3. IMAK Compression Arthritis Gloves
These snug yet breathable cotton gloves provide a healthy amount of compression to keep the hands warm and improve blood flow, relieving discomfort, stiffness, and pain caused by arthritis.
The comfortable material and open-tipped design mean your elderly loved one can wear them for as long as they like—without worrying about taking them off for everyday tasks.
4. Harry & David Holiday Mugs & Hot Cocoa Kit
Of all the gifts to keep seniors warm, this has to be one of the most festive. Nothing says warm and cozy like a big mug of hot chocolate!
Set your senior up for the toastiest of winters this holiday with the Harry & David Holiday Mugs and Hot Cocoa Kit…
Complete with two themed mugs, an eight-ounce tin of hot cocoa, four snowflake-shaped marshmallow toppers, and even a beverage frother!
5. The Bearaby Cotton Napper Weighted Blanket
In addition to the warmth and comfort of a regular blanket, weighted blankets are known to reduce stress and anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve sleep.
That’s what makes the Bearaby Cotton Napper an excellent gift to keep seniors warm.
Many other weighted blankets contain plastic pellets or glass beads, which can lead to uneven weight distribution. But the napper is made entirely of hand-woven organic cotton, ensuring the weight is always evenly distributed.
It’s ideal for lounging on the couch during family gatherings, watching their favorite TV shows or movies, or for the comforting sensation of a big hug as they fall asleep in bed.
6. Cozy Non-Slip House Slippers
What’s better than a gift that keeps your elderly loved one warm and comfy while also preventing falls?
A new pair of lined, anti-skid slippers will help fend off the cold and give them some extra traction when walking around the house.
Check out these wool-lined, memory foam bootie slippers for women, and these cushioned, faux fur house slippers for men.
7. The InvoSpa Heated Neck & Back Massager
Neck and back pain is incredibly common among seniors. In fact, scientists estimate that more than 85% of people will experience it at some point in their lives.
If you know a senior who struggles with these frustrating aches and pains, the InvoSpa Heated Neck and Back Massager will bring them endless hours of comfort and relief.
Equipped with eight massage roller balls—four large and four small—this ergonomic Shiatsu massager mimics the feeling of a masseuse rubbing your back, neck, and shoulders.
With the positioning handles, your elderly loved one can move the device freely and apply pressure wherever they need it…
Three different strength levels allow them to customize the pressure…
And if they want to add some warmth to their massage, they can turn on the heating function at any time…
But the best part?
Your senior can use it almost anywhere on their body. The positioning handles give them the freedom to use it on their feet, the backs of their legs, the low back—pretty much anywhere!
