My Dad turns 90 in a few months and I really want to mark the occasion with a special gift. The problem is he doesn’t want anything. Nothing! He wants to get rid of stuff, not accumulate more. I understand, but still want to give something special to this wonderful man who raised me.

It becomes increasingly more difficult to keep track of days, dates, and times as people age. Your loved one may need to keep track of medications, appointments, or perhaps just a busy social calendar.

Sherpa Fleece 100% Oeko-Tex Certified Minky Weighted Blanket
Sleep gets more elusive as we age – Ask anyone over age 50! The reason? It may be due to aching muscles or restless legs. Or, sometimes older adults simply like the comfort, warmth, and weight of extra blankets on their bed. Whatever the issue, this cozy reversible weighted blanket could be the perfect solution! Weighted blankets help relax the nervous system, which in turn reduces stress and anxiety, to make it easier to fall asleep. This Minky soft blanket can be gently washed, though to make it easier to stay clean, order a washable duvet cover too.

And you can rest more easily if they have this gift that prevents them from accidentally opening the door to an unwelcome stranger.
