In order not to mis­cal­cu­late, you can choose prac­ti­cal and ver­sa­tile gifts that make life eas­i­er.

For some women, due to their health, at the age of 60 it is dif­fi­cult to main­tain order in the house or stand for hours at the stove for cook­ing.

The gifts below are capa­ble of make these tasks eas­i­er for the hero of the day.

  • Dish­wash­er. This is an ide­al gift if a woman con­stant­ly cooks some­thing in the kitchen for the house­hold or often invites friends to her house. Usu­al­ly, after such gath­er­ings, a lot of dirty dish­es remain. Hav­ing a dish­wash­er, a woman will not spend a lot of time and effort on putting the kitchen in order.
  • Mul­ti­cook­er. This is a minia­ture assis­tant to mod­ern house­wives. The unit sup­ports sev­er­al func­tions: cook­ing, stew­ing, steam­ing, bak­ing. Hav­ing a slow cook­er, you can quick­ly and eas­i­ly pre­pare tasty and healthy food.
  • Food proces­sor. There are var­i­ous vari­a­tions of such equip­ment in stores. There are devices with a chop­per, with cut­ting discs, with a juicer and a meat grinder. Good house­wives will like this unit.

  • Tele­vi­sion. You can replace the exist­ing out­dat­ed mod­el with a liq­uid crys­tal or plas­ma device.

A prac­ti­cal gift will be var­i­ous small house­hold appli­ances: an iron, a microwave oven, an elec­tric ket­tle, a blender, a toast­er, a vac­u­um clean­er, a bread machine, a meat grinder or a cof­fee mak­er. If there is no need for these devices, you can give pref­er­ence beau­ti­ful bed linen, tea set, bath set.

These are uni­ver­sal gifts that will find appli­ca­tion in any home.

For creativity

As a rule, at the age of 60, most women no longer work. They have a lot of free time, which they spend on class­es “for the soul.” It is not sur­pris­ing that there are a lot of needle­women among pen­sion­ers.

In addi­tion, you can go to the the­ater with your moth­er (for con­nois­seurs of art), to a con­cert of your favorite group, or arrange a vis­it to the opera hall.

How to choose?

Basi­cal­ly, par­ents rarely direct­ly say what they would like to receive as a gift from their chil­dren. There­fore, before choos­ing a present, you need to care­ful­ly lis­ten to your moth­er.

Per­haps, in the course of the con­ver­sa­tion, she will talk about the acqui­si­tions of her friends, in which she her­self needs.

A good idea would be to study the home envi­ron­ment. So you can find out what exact­ly mom needs — in house­hold appli­ances, decor items or oth­er things. Some­times it hap­pens that chil­dren live in dif­fer­ent cities with their moth­er, which is why they do not have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to inde­pen­dent­ly track the needs of a woman. In this case, you need to con­sult with dad, he prob­a­bly knows what a loved one will be hap­py about.

Judg­ing by the sta­tis­tics, on 50th and 60th anniver­saries, sons give their moth­ers expen­sive uni­ver­sal gifts.

In most cas­es, at this age, women have adult and self-suf­fi­cient chil­dren who are able to present expen­sive presents. Con­sid­er cur­rent gifts from son to moth­er on her six­ti­eth birth­day.

  • A trip to a sana­to­ri­um. There, a woman can take a break from house­hold chores, improve her health. After the sana­to­ri­um, the moth­er will return rest­ed, full of strength and vital­i­ty.

What can’t be donated?

It turns out that not all birth­day gifts are con­sid­ered suc­cess­ful. There is a cat­e­go­ry of presents, the acqui­si­tion of which is bet­ter to refuse. They are “for­bid­den” to give old signs. If mom is super­sti­tious do not give her the fol­low­ing gifts.

  • Objects with sharp ends: scis­sors, knives, forks. In ancient times, it was believed that neg­a­tive ener­gy accu­mu­lat­ed at the sharp ends. Because of this, sharp objects can pro­voke scan­dals in the fam­i­ly, var­i­ous trou­bles and bad luck.
  • Dolls made of porce­lain. It is believed that dark forces can move into dolls whose faces are sim­i­lar to human ones. It is not sur­pris­ing that in ancient times dolls re made with­out a head.
  • Dis­ease reminders. Hav­ing received such a present, the birth­day man will begin to think more often about his ail­ments.
  • Ani­mals. Accord­ing to the sign, pets giv­en for a birth­day are doomed to death.
  • Emp­ty items. It main­ly con­cerns dish­es, wal­lets, bags, pig­gy banks. They def­i­nite­ly need to put a pret­ty pen­ny, oth­er­wise the birth­day boy will be over­come by finan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties.
  • Mir­rors. It is believed that a woman will lose her beau­ty and attrac­tive­ness every day, look­ing into a donat­ed mir­ror.

All these pro­hi­bi­tions are asso­ci­at­ed with signs. You should not pay atten­tion to them if the woman and the donors do not believe in them.

The main thing is that the gift should be pre­sent­ed with all my heart, with good thoughts and inten­tions, and aimed at good.
