For the nostalgic senior who likes reminiscing about the past.
(5 Simple Amazing Gifts Locked in Time)
Bstorify Scrapbook Album - 60 pages
What you do here is give this gift with either your photos or go through some of their old photos and start pasting them in the book. Then for the next year, open the book to a page and either you write a story about the photo or have them write a story about the photo. Half the peope in our photos we don't know anymore! Let's find out who they were and how they lived! Don't forget the adhesive roller tape.
Vintage Candy Gift Box
Everyone loves candy. This is a huge box and the best seller on Amazon for its kind. Tons of candy we used to eat in the 50s and 60s. While most of us shouldn't be eating all this sugar, I just have to ask..."How much sugar was really in this candy?" Is it as sweet as the candy we eat today? I don't see a lot of chocolate in this gift box, so was it just pure sugar? Hmmm. Time to find out. Everyone will have fun trying this candy and it will certainly bring the memories back! Where was your favorite candy store? Mine was the "Penny a Piece" Candy Store.
PRUNUS J-160 Small Retro Vintage Radio with Bluetooth, Portable Transistor Radio AM FM, Rechargeable Battery
How fun it would be to have a radio from the past. This is another big seller. It has bluetooth so your family member can play through their cellphone. (Yes, you'll have to show them how). And even AM/FM radio! (which I survived on during Hurricane Ian when all the power went out) It was my only connection to "All is gonna be OK". And I love the color, so I can find it easily when I misplace it!
Funny Retro Record Coasters for Drinks with Vinyl Player Holder for Music Lovers
This is a set of 6 vinyl record coasters and they look quite real. They come with a record player holder which brings back many memories for all of us. And we don't even have to worry about scratching the record. These coasters are hand washable and easy to keep. Not to mention they will also protect the furniture. It's a great gift as a conversation piece. For example, "Hey these remind me, what was your favorite song back in the 50s and 60s?"
100 Favorite Classic Hollywood Films from the 1930s, 40s, and 50s: And the Stars Who Appeared in Them
Here's a great book to go through with your senior. Get the pen ready and ask what they liked or didn't like about the movie or the stars. They will have stories to tell you didn't even know about! It's a fun way to spend time with your family and have a stimulating and enlightening conversation about all that's gone before us. Just the other day I was telling my daughter about the disgracefulness of this one actress... She had no clue.
