Gift Ideas for Senior Men


Buying a gift for an elderly man proves a somewhat daunting task. Seniors typically need very little, and they often have limited space to store items. Luckily, you can find quite a few gifts that will get used on a regular basis and that will not become useless clutter. Purchasing one of these items will ensure the elderly man in your life will receive a welcome gift.

Personalized Touches

  • A special way to show love to an elderly man is to purchase a personalized gift. Even personalized coffee mugs show that you took the time to add a special meaning and message to the gift. You can personalize just about anything with the name of the recipient or a special message, including picture frames, T-shirts, golf and sporting equipment and more.

Golf Equipment

  • Many older men play golf on a regular basis, whether for pure enjoyment or for health reasons. You can purchase any number of golf accessories to add extra flair to the elder's golf game: Ball markers, club covers, golf gloves, hats, shoes, clothing, sunglasses, extra balls, tees, score logs, organizers and beverage and food holders all make excellent gifts for the older gentlemen who plays golf regularly.


  • Many senior men will appreciate a gift of food. A gift basket full of tasty cheeses, sausage, fruit and other items will likely be appreciated. A food-of-the-month gift will also be amusing and well-received. You can find food-of-the-month categories including bacon, cheese, fruit, coffee, wine and more.

Memory Books

  • An elderly man may enjoy the sentimental gift of a memory book or scrapbook. Make your own book of childhood photos or pictures of his children or grandchildren; or compile a wedding album, vacation album or anything else that strikes your fancy. You can also create a birth year scrapbook filled with pictures of items popular during the senior's birth year and facts about what was going on in the world during that time.


  • Gadgets provide another gift option for the senior man in your life. If he owns a computer, purchase a flash drive, a web cam so he can talk to far away relatives, or any other computer gadget he could use. A digital weather clock that lists the current temperatures would also make a good gift. Even an MP3 player can make a great gift for an older man.
