It’s a given that virtually everyone is looking forward to 2020 being over with and done and thankfully that end is rapidly approaching. However, that means that the holidays are here once again and while the season may look different for us in a lot of ways, chances are pretty good that you’ve still got a few beloved Boomers in your life on your shopping list.
But you should forget about gifting books, gift cards, and the ever-dreaded socks. This year you can thrill the Boomers in your life on your Nice List with a gift that’s geared specifically toward them.
Give Them a Bit of Security
There’s simply no denying the fact that Boomers aren’t getting any younger and of course the older we get, the slower we get. Furthermore, there are times where just a short walk to see who is at the door can set off a cacophony of snaps, crackles, plenty of pops, and more than a few aches and pains.
This is why a video doorbell makes great gifts for grandmas. Many are extremely affordable and easy to install and with a quick download to their laptop or smartphone, they’ll know exactly who is at the door without ever having to get out of the recliner.
Since they record any time motion is detected, video doorbells have quickly made their way onto homes all across the country. Having the ability to monitor the front door 24 hours a day, 7 days a week will offer them, and you, some peace of mind. Not to mention the fact that in the days of this pandemic, it can be exceptionally handy to see who is at the door and what they want, before ever opening it.
A True Blast From the Past
You hear about it all the time now and with several reputable companies offering the service now, the cost of DNA and ancestry tracing is more affordable than ever. Get Grandma to prove once and for all that she has Native American heritage or help Grandpa trace his lineage back as far as possible.
Sites like 23andMe and Ancestry.com offer DNA testing kits and virtually tons of historical data that can provide them with hours upon hours of investigative fun. Consider getting them a kit or membership to one of those and watch their face light up this year.
A Trivia Game They’ll Love
There are plenty of lame, boring trivia games available but of course, there are a few gems out there as well. However, one that is quickly becoming a favorite among Boomers is ‘Boom Again’ and the biggest reason is — it’s a FUN game!
Questions span the ‘50s, ‘60s, & ’70s and cover everything from the lingo of the times to protest movements, pop culture, entertainment, and much more. Just as they likely stashed plenty of goodies in cigar boxes when they were growing up, Boom Again is stored in one that looks and feels authentic (just without the cigar smell) and they’re going to love the game tokens that are definite blasts from the past.
