5. A new and safe pill organizer is a must-have for all senior citizens who take medications!

As we all know, it's dangerous to your health to skip daily medications. And it's also just as dangerous for forgetful or confused seniors to accidentally take their daily pills twice in a 24 hours period. That's why a safe and easy-to-use pill organizer is one of the best Christmas gifts for seniors who need to take daily prescription medications. 

I highly recommend this Ezy Dose 7 day AM/PM Pill Organizer on Amazon. I love the push button lids, on each day's pill compartment, that easily pops open/closed with the touch of a finger. The Arthritis Foundation recommends the Ezy Dose too!

I also love that each day's pill compartment is larger than most of the other pill organizers on the market and it's color coded for morning and evening pills.

Check Amazon's price on the Ezy Dose 7 day AM/PM Pill Organizer.

You'd surprised how hand a pill organizer is and that why I chose it as one of the best Christmas gifts for seniors.

My Recommendations for the Best Christmas Gifts for Senior Citizens:

6.  I have to mention, as a caregiver, I saw lots of relatives visit on Christmas Eve or on Christmas day. And that's a lovely thing to see.

But I also saw that many of the seniors were slightly overwhelmed or exhausted by greeting relatives, that they had rarely seen earlier in the year, on Christmas Eve or Christmas day.  The seniors pushed themselves to do all the visiting & catching up in just a few hours.

Yes, all of the seniors I knew felt that a visit from a relatie made one of the very best Christmas gifts for seniors - but I think many seniors would be just as appreciative if their extended relatives would sprinkle their visits throughout the year. That way, each visit could be slowly enjoyed and it would make the whole year more wonderful for any senior relative.

Here are my recommendations for some of the best Christmas gifts for senior citizens.New Idea: Christmas in June

So here is my idea for the next best Christmas gift for senior citizens: mark you calendar for a Christmas in June visit to your favorite older relative!

Yes, think about how relaxing and nice it would be to schedule a June 25th visit. Everyone would not be caught up in the stress or rush of the holidays. And the weather would be nice too.

If you made a date to visit your elderly relative on June 25th, they would have something truly wonderful to look forward to after the hustle and bustle of the holidays!

A Christmas in June visit can be one of the best Christmas gifts for seniors in your life!

7. A Grabber! Yes, an Ettore Grip n Grab Reach Tool is one of the best Christmas gifts for seniors this year.

8. A night light for safety and beauty is a great Christmas gift for senior citizens - or anyone. Really, who couldn't use a good nightlight for safety and security?

Personally, I love nightlights because when I get up in the middle of the night - or when it's still dark in the morning - I feel so much safer when I can see where I'm going. I feel disoriented if I don't have a nightlight. Like a lot of senior citizens, a good nightlight helps make up for my bad night vision. Nightlights are an inexpensive but thoughtful & safe gift for senior citizens, children and everyone else in between.

I love these SOAIY Plug-in LED Night Lights on Amazon because they have a smart On/Off sensor which means they only light up at night. These SOAIY night lights stay cool to the touch and save money because you're not wasting electricity during the daytime!

Another great thing about the SOAIY Night Lights is that they're designed not to cover up the 2nd outlet - unlike a lot of other night lights that cover both electrical outlets.

Check Amazon's price on the SOAIY Plug-in LED Night Lights.
