Senior citizens have come to a time in life when they are proud to let people know how old they are. It is a source of pride to let everyone know how many years they have lived on this earth. A birthday party is a great way to celebrate the day that a senior was born.
You can make the age of the senior the theme of the party. Get a cake with the year they were born or the age of the person on the top of the cake and make sure the cake is the senior’s favorite kind of cake. My mom likes orange cake and I hate it but I try to give it to her on her birthday.
Many seniors have plenty of stuff sitting around and they don’t need or want anymore so don’t get them a knick knack or a coffee table decoration. Get them something they can use like their favorite food or a special kind of soap. If the senior does not have a cell phone that might be a good present along with instructions and demonstrations on how to use it.
Make a senior feel special with a make over at a salon or a massage. Many seniors have body aches and a massage may be a nice present.
Seniors may need something replaced so a new item to replace the old one may be a nice present. If they need a toaster to take the place of on old toaster them may be a good present.
Many seniors would just like to spend time with you. Take the senior shopping for food or shoes. Maybe the senior needs a new outfit or a nice scarf. They would enjoy a special shopping trip to get a special item.
Seniors like to go out for dinner. Take a senior out to their favorite restaurant for their birthday. A place where the wait staff gives special attention to a birthday may be real nice to give a senior special attention. Maybe find a restaurant where the wait staff brings out a small cake with a candle in the top and then sings happy birthday to the birthday person.
The best thing to give a senior on their birthday is some of your time. Sit and talk with them and spend some special time with the senior in your life on their special day.
