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 LOVE Birthstone Necklaces

Ball FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System 116852

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.

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.

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.

Best Christmas Gifts for a 60 Year Old Dad

Best Christmas Gifts for a 60 Year Old Dad 2015

Best Gifts for a 60 Year Old DadI made this shopping list of the best Christmas gifts for a 60 year old dad because my dad will be turning 60 very soon!  It’s not always easy for some people to know what to get their 60 year old father, I know, that’s why I made this ridiculously awesome gift guide.

My dad is a mans man, sports guy with a great sense of humor and a big heart.  My dad is the kind of guy who tells it like it is without regards to “political correctness or “feelings” but that’s what makes him the coolest dad ever.

You never know what dad is going to say but you know it’s going to be unique to his personality and the generation he grew up in.   He’s not bending for anyone or anything – he’s aged to perfection…

T-Shirts Make the Best Gifts for a 60 Year Old Dad

Vintage 1955 T-Shirtcool gifts for a 60 year old dad

“Aged to Perfection” LOL That is my dad alright.. and he is definitely vintage!

I love this t-shirt because it’s funny but still very cool to wear. It has a manly design to it unlike some “dad” shirts where they’re funny, but not really something to wear out of the house.

I love Etsy because they have a lot of these different types of shirts for a 60 year old dad. This one here is specific to the year 1955 but there are other years and shirts available too.

Best Gifts for a Handy Man 60 Year Old Dad

Black & Decker BDCDMT1206KITC Matrix 6 Tool Combo Kit with Casebest gifts for a 60 year old dad

One thing my dad loves his tools and I know that he hasn’t really bought himself a new set in awhile. I think power tools make a good gift for your 60 year old dad because all dads need a good tool set.

If you have a dad that enjoys fixing things around the house (whether mom likes it or not), this kit will make him flip his lid. My dad is always doing projects and I know his tools are a bit worn.

I love it that my dad is a handy man, he is full of wisdom and fix-its for the house, if this sounds like your 60 year old father, consider a good power tools set for Christmas.

This Tablet is a Good Gift for Your 60 Year Old Dad

Fire HDX 8.9, 8.9best tablet to buy a 60 year old man

The Amazon Fire HD 8.9-Inch tablet is the perfect gift for my 60-year-old dad because it’s easy to use and it’s something he can watch sports with, read books on and surf the web.

The larger 8.9-Inch high definition screen is just the right size for him to read and watch movies on. He has an Amazon Prime account he can connect to and watch thousands of free movies and shows.

I know he really likes that he can watch his favorite baseball team play when he’s in the garage or outside working in the yard.


Cool Christmas Gifts for a 60 Year Old Dad Under $50

Here are two awesome gifts under $50 that your 60 yr old father will love and appreciate.  The massager is one of the best; it works for the neck and back for a deep tissue massage at home.  My dad retired recently but he was an electrician for many, many years and he has some crazy neck pain at times.

I Know It’s Only Rock N Roll But My Dad Likes It

Rolling Stones Cross-Fire Hurricanegifts for my 60 year old dad

My dad loves the Rolling Stones. Rock n Roll was at the height of it’s popularity when he was a teen and the Stones are his favorite. Rock N Roll memorabilia is a cool Christmas gift for a 60 year old father.

Etsy has a lot of cool Stones memorabilia, I like this picture here because it totally reminds me of my sixty-yr-old dad who is sort of a bad-ass… runs in the family I guess.

This Lounge Swing is one the BEST Christmas Gifts for My 60 Year Old Dad

Hanging Chaise Lounger Chair Arc Stand Air Porch Swing Hammock Chair Canopy

This is seriously the most awesome gift to buy a 60 year old dad. Lounge outside in style with this cool lounging patio swing chair with canopy.

Imagine a cup of coffee and reading the sports page in this beauty?  You could never get my dad out once he got in it.

I could see my mom trying to kick my dad out of this chair, it’s a ridiculously awesome patio swing for one.

Keep Dad Safe and Hands-Free While Driving

Mobile Phone Car Mount

My dad loves to drive and one thing his old truck doesn’t have is a way to connect the phone to the radio. I think these car phone holders are great because he can keep his eye on the wheel while talking to my mom about what to bring home from the store.

Instead of nagging him to stay off his phone while driving I’ll just show him how cool this hands-free phone holder is for his truck instead.   He can be a bit stuck in his ways but there are ways to get him to do the right thing.

Cool Car Wash Gifts for Your 60 Year Old

Turtle Wax Premium Car 8-Piece Cleaning Set

Does your dad wash his own car? My 60 yr old dad always washes his cars at home and I know he would appreciate this car cleaning kit. He’s out there at least once a month on the weekends washing the cars.

A car cleaning set like this is nice because it has lots of cleaning tools to help get the job done quicker. I know he has some tools that he uses now but these are sweet car cleaning tools that he probably wouldn’t get himself.

A Large-Letter Keyboard Makes a Good Gift to Buy a 60 Year Old Dad

Azio Large Print Tri-Color Backlit Wired Keyboard (KB505U)

My dad uses the computer for online banking and some Facebook games he likes to play. Dad is not exactly the best at typing so I think this large-print keyboard with back lighting would be a good gift for him.

It’s a manly looking keyboard that looks cool so I know he will use it. It doesn’t look like some senior citizen keyboard that only old people would use.

This Shirt is a Cool Christmas Gift for 60 Year Old Dad

T-Shirt for 60 Year Old Dad

It really did take my dad 60 years to look as good as he does.  My dad is a really good looking guy, he’s an old surfer dude from California.

T-shirts are funny gifts for a 60 year old dad and they can wear them with pride.

The reason shirts make great gifts for a dad who is 60 years old is because they are practical.  They can wear them working in the yard or headed to the Home Depot.
