What to give grandfather for 90 years?

How to choose a present?

A man who has lived for 90 years has his own ll-estab­lished world­view, habits and incli­na­tions. In order for your gift to be sig­nif­i­cant for the hero of the day, you must have the most infor­ma­tion avail­able to you about your grand­fa­ther.

Adult peo­ple are very dif­fer­ent, they have their own spe­cial­ties, sphere of activ­i­ty, social cir­cle, inter­ests.

The gift should be select­ed tak­ing into account these indi­ca­tors, it should express the full­ness of your feel­ings for an elder­ly per­son and, most impor­tant­ly, be need­ed by him. A present for a man who has reached the age of 90 should be cho­sen tak­ing into account his phys­i­cal con­di­tion.

What are the gifts?

In order not to make a mis­take in choos­ing, divide the gifts into cat­e­gories. So you can have a clear idea of ​​​​the need for a present, whether you are ready to give it to your grand­fa­ther for his 90th birth­day or if you should not do this.

Gifts can be:

  • mem­o­rable and valu­able;
  • focused on the hob­by of the hero of the day;
  • gifts for men­tal and phys­i­cal com­fort;
  • med­ical sup­plies;
  • a tick­et to a sana­to­ri­um;
  • crock­ery and house­hold appli­ances;
  • con­fec­tionery (home­made pas­tries).

You can place in the book a pho­to of your grand­fa­ther in a cir­cle of fel­low sol­diers, tak­en dur­ing the war years. Among the pho­tographs there should also be a pho­to of the grand­fa­ther in the cir­cle of friends, col­leagues and clos­est rel­a­tives.

If he does not see ll, but loves to read very much, then buy an e‑book for your grand­fa­ther and teach him how to use it. You can set the font of any size in it, and this is very impor­tant for an elder­ly per­son.

Give him a present in the form of a new board with chess or backgam­mon, dec­o­rat­ed in an artis­tic style. Cur­rent­ly, there are a lot of hand­made chess and backgam­mon pieces for sale. Usu­al­ly the game board is cov­ered with moth­er-of-pearl var­nish, and some intri­cate ori­en­tal pat­tern is carved on it. If you still make a com­pa­ny and sit down to play with your elder­ly rel­a­tive, then this will give him great plea­sure.
  • Ther­moreg­u­la­tion in the elder­ly is sig­nif­i­cant­ly impaired, so they feel cold and uncom­fort­able. You can give your grand­fa­ther very soft indoor slip­pers or warm slip­pers made of nat­ur­al fur (sheep­skin). In them, his feet will be com­fort­able. If you know how to knit, then present a warm sater and socks made by you as a birth­day present to your grand­fa­ther. He will ar these things and fond­ly remem­ber you.
