If you’re one of those people who worries about finding just the right holiday gifts for everyone on your list, you know how hard it can be. Even for people you know really well. To help, here’s a holiday gift guide for seniors, broken into areas of interest. So if you have someone who wants the latest and greatest technology, this post has some suggestions. Or maybe they like gardening or are a bookworm. Whatever you need, we have holiday gift ideas. 

Holiday gift guide for the gardener.

  • Smart Garden: This intelligent indoor garden yields fresh fruits and herbs in just three simple steps: plug in, insert pre-seeded plant capsules, and add water once a month. The NASA-inspired soil delivers plant-specific amounts of oxygen, nutrients and water. An energy-efficient LED system gives your garden an exact dose of direct light. The biodegradable capsules contain no pesticides, hormones or harmful chemicals.
  • Adaptive garden tools: Specially made tools can help a loved one with arthritis enjoy gardening while reducing the risk of pain or injury. Plenty of sites — like Radius — offer tools with enhanced grips or lengthened handles, to help relieve strain on achy joints. 
  • Folding Garden Kneeler and Seat: This two-in-one unit can be used as a garden chair to make it easy to work on the lower part of shrubs or taller stemmed flowers. Or flip it over and use it as a kneeling pad.
