Beautiful Bohemian Gifts for My Matchless Friends

We all have a friend who expresses the Bohemian style that is so popular now.  And yes, seniors can still sport Bohemian style and enjoy every minute of it.   Think about your special friend who would enjoy Bohemian gifts like Bohemian ottomans, throw pillows, scatter rugs, and gorgeous shawls.

She Will Love These Bohemian Wall Tapestries

Like most items in her life, these Bohemian wall tapestries can be used on the wall, or the bed, or even taken to the beach for a long, lazy afternoon in the sun. Styles and colors are totally amazing — and you know her well enough to know that she will love and enjoy any unusual, colorful, tapestry.

Fun Halloween Costumes for Senior Citizens

Halloween costumes for senior citizens can be anything you want, but just for fun, I picked our favorites to share with our readers.   If your grandchildren want you to dress up for Halloween as mine do, or if you are going to a costume contest or a Halloween party, then of course, you want to wear the coolest costume possible.

Bacon & Eggs CostumeCute Halloween Costume for Grandpa and Grandma

This bacon and eggs costume is my favorite for a senior couple who will be answering the door for Trick or Treaters, especially the grandchildren. This one is easy to wear, simple to put on quickly, and something even the littlest ones will think is terribly funny. Grandma and Grandpa dressed up like bacon and eggs. I can hear the giggles now. Remember to have your pictures made. The children and the grandchildren will treasure your Halloween dress up night.

Minnie Mouse Halloween Costume for Grandma

Disney Minnie Mouse Adult Costume
We are a family of Disney fans for 3 generations. If your family is like ours, then you certainly would be adorable in this Minnie Mouse outfit. If you don’t want your legs to show, wear tights.

Relax and have fun! We grow old when we stop having fun, remember? Practice your Minnie voice, too, so when the children come to the door, they “see” Minnie.

Of course, if you are going to a Halloween party with a costume contest, you want to really pull out all the stops and dress up like you really mean it. Add funny Halloween accessories, too, for added drama and flair. If you dare to ride the Camel this year, please be sure your grandchildren see you. They would squeal with delight! In fact, no matter what you are wearing to the party, go to their house and ring the doorbell and shout “Trick or Treat.”

Plus Size Halloween Costume Women Will Actually Wear

Some of us are simply not as small as we used to be, but we have wonderfully comfy grandma laps, don’t we? Still, we want to join in the fun and dress up for Halloween and delight the grands. Halloween costumes for grandma are fun to wear especially when we get into character. Whoever you decide to become on Halloween night, do some research so when the grands ask questions, you can answer in character. Pick your favorite plus size Halloween costume women will wear with pride.

Best Christmas Gifts for a 60 Year Old Mom

Best Christmas Gifts for a 60 Year Old Mom 2015

Best Gifts for a 60 Year Old MomThis list of the best Christmas gifts for a 60 year old mom was made in honor of my mom but it also serves as a unique shopping guide to help others find the right gift for their sixty year old mother too.

It’s always neat to get someone else’s perspective when it comes to good gifts to a 60 year old mother.

My mother loves to bake and she loves to read and she loves to talk to her dog and cat like they’re people.  My mom bakes the best goodies in the whole world and love to buy her gifts she can use in the kitchen because it really benefits me.

Gifts that remind my 60 year old mom of her grandchildren or family make good gifts to buy.  There are lots of unique ideas here for you to create something really special if you want something more personalized.

Personalized Blankets Make Great Gifts for a 60 Year Old Mom

Personalized Fleece Blanket for Mompersonalized gifts for a 60 year old mom

I bought my 60 yr old mom a personalized fleece blanket from Zazzle for Christmas and she absolutely loved it.

She shows this blanket off to anyone who comes over the house. Her dog Charlie loves to lay on it because he misses the grand kids when they are not there.

You can personalize your fleece blanket with a picture for your sixty yr old mom of her grand kids or yourself. I thought about giving my mom a giant fleece blanket with just my face but I didn’t want to scare the dog.

60 Year Old Moms LOVES to Can Foods!

gifts for my 60 year old momBall FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System 116852great gifts for 60 year old mom

It may seem odd to buy your 60 year old mom a canning machine but I’m telling you – mom will love it! I got my 60 year old mother a canning machine and I’ve created a monster! My mom is canning everything; I’ve got canned meat, jam, vegetables, fruits and and beans for life!

Canning was something that my grandmother did and it brought back a lot of memories for my 60 yr old mom. It’s a modern canning machine system that gives her that nostalgic feeling.  I bought her a canning system, canning book and a whole lot of mason jars and lids!

The MOST AWESOME Hanging Lounge Chair for Your 60 Yr Old Mom

Best Choice Products® Hanging Chaise Lounger Chair Arc Stand Air Porch Swing Hammock Chair Canopy

If you buy this awesome chair for your 60 year old mom be prepared for your dad to try and take it over. It’s a great lounge chair for reading outdoors.

My parents have a beautiful backyard space with lots of trees, this hanging lounge chair would be the perfect gift relaxing – I can see the dog and cat trying to get in it with her.

This hanging lounge chair for one is available in other colors besides this teal you see pictures.

Healthy Gifts for Your 60 Year Old Mother

Magic Bullet NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer SystemHealthy Gifts for Your 60 Year Old Mother

I actually bought my 60 year old mom one of these because she really needed to get more raw vegetables and fruit in her diet. She’s a great cook but she’s a little heavy on the butter and cheese – which I’m not complaining by any means but I want to look after moms overall health.

Now that she has one she is really into raw juice – my dad not so much but she’s working on him. The Nutri-Bullet is perfect for the two of them because it makes the right amount and it’s easy to clean up and dishwasher safe. My mom makes raw veggie juice with carrots, greens, berries, bananas, chia seeds and lots of other goodies from the healthy aisles.

60 Year Old Moms LOVE Birthstone Necklaces

Birthstone Family Tree Necklace – Personalize It!

Etsy has a lot of pretty birthstone necklaces for mom and it’s a gift that she will treasure forever. My mom is a proud mom and grandmother – I mean she beams at the thought of her kids and her grand kids!

A birthstone necklace is a beautiful reminder of a moms most-precious jewels close to her heart.

This is a good gift to buy a 60 year old mom or mother-in-law because it’s something she wouldn’t buy herself.  Trust me, she’ll love it!

Mother Rings Make Thoughtful Gifts for a 60 Yr Old Mom

Any reminder of your children or grandchildren is a thoughtful gift for a mom or mother in law.  You can personalize them and give them to her in a beautiful box for Christmas.  Etsy has a lot of beautiful mother rings to choose from and they can be personalized with names or birthstones.

Stackable Rings, Name Rings, Personalized Rings3 Birthstone Stacking Rings

Healthy Gifts for Your 60 Year Old Mother

Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity Plus Sleep Wristband, Pink

My 60 year old mom enjoys walking with her dog Charlie around the neighborhood but sometimes lacks motivation to go.

My mom and her chubby dog could use more walking but rather than say that I think getting her a FitBit would be better. It would be just the right thing to give her a little excitement in her walking routine again.

The FitBit tracks calories, steps, heart rate and active heart rate. It comes in lots of colors so if you’re mom’s not a bright pink kind of woman that’s okay.

Make Cooking Quick & Easy for Your 60 Yr Old Mom

Nuwave 20326 Pro Digital-Controlled Infrared Tabletop Oven

The NuWave uses convection, conduction, infrared head to make perfect meals in less time than a traditional oven.

The NuWave oven will air fry, roast, rotisserie, bake, and grill your foods in a fraction of the time with the push of a button. Food comes out delicious and flavorful every time!

This is the perfect kitchen helper if you are making meals for 2 people, like 60 Y.O. mom is!

One of the Best Gifts for My 60 Year Old Mom is a NIGHT OFF!

Gifts Cards Make Good GiftsMy mom loves to cook but she also enjoys going out to dinner with my dad. Because it’s just the two of them, I can get them a nice gift card for $50 and they can enjoy a nice dinner and some drinks together.  It’s a gift for my mom but it’s a little something for dad too because he won’t have to do the dishes after dinner.

Movie gift cards are also a nice idea because my mom loves to go to the movies but my dad grumbles about the high cost.  A movie gift card is my way of treating my 60 year old mom to a movie with my dad or one of her friends.

Funny Gifts for Your 60 Year Old Mom

Squatty Potty® Toilet Stool, 7 Inch- The Original – Made in U.S.A.

This is a funny gift for moms 60 years old but not a joke, this is a serious gift that will help her immensely. 

I bought my sixty year old mom a Squatty Potty and practically changed her entire bowel movement experience. She said, “where has this been all my life?”

I thought it was proper to END with this gift idea for your 60 yr old mom!
