Resistance Band and Balance Workouts
My elderly Dad started working not too long ago with a physical therapist using resistance bands for balance issues. Not only is his balance much better, but he found this type of exercise very doable for him. He wanted to continue on his own after the therapy sessions ended, so this was a perfect gift for him. Resistance bands are one of the safest and least intimidating ways for older adults to start a strength training and flexibility program. They are safe and fun, and the intensity of the exercise can easily be increased or decreased since it’s all about the thickness of the band you choose and where you hold it for a given exercise. This DVD set might not be an obvious choice for a gift for your favorite 80-year-old guy, but we recommend you try it. You might be surprised!

I love this magnifying glass! It’s great for me as well as for the 80-year-old for whom I purchased it.

This handy item also provides an evenly lit viewing area and is fully dimmable. With ten ultrabright LEDs, it boasts an extended 100,000-hour lifespan. What sets this magnifying glass apart from many on the market today is that it is rechargeable via USB; you can recharge in two hours! The lightweight and ergonomic handle makes it easy to move around. I recommend this magnifier for anyone who struggles to read the small print on menus, newspapers, etc., but particularly for seniors with low vision and macular degeneration. This is a perfect item for those with visual impairment – and makes a great gift for 80-year-old men!

Sherpa Fleece 100% Oeko-Tex Certified Minky Weighted Blanket
Sleep gets more elusive as we age – Ask anyone over age 50! Why is that? It may be due to aching muscles or restless legs. Sometimes older adults simply like the comfort, warmth, and weight of extra blankets on their bed. I know I do. 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, and makes 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.

This Wi-Fi-enabled video doorbell allows your favorite 80-year-old to see, hear, and speak to visitors at the door from their phone, tablet, or computer. If he has an Echo or Echo Dot, the doorbell can be programmed to work with Alexa. Easy to install anywhere, Ring works both with and without existing doorbell wires. This technology is something an 80-year-old generally won’t buy for himself but will love it once installed!
