There’s an opinion that every granny is desperate about getting an air conditioner or a collection of downy handkerchieves for her birthday. We have no doubt whatsoever in how important it is to maintain a certain climate in the apartment, but it’s hardly your granny’s aspiration. And isn’t it better to install an air conditioner in a regular time, and to give her something she will really enjoy for her birthday or on another special occasion?
If you are looking for a non-trivial present for your granny, consider a karaoke system. Karaoke has an excellent effect on both physical and mental health, enhances immune systems, releases stress, and improves memory. What is more, karaoke brings people together, charges them with energy for a long time, and leaves very positive emotions afterwards.
One person can have as a great time, singing karaoke, as a bunch of people. Birthdays, memorable dates, and anniversaries will become more joyful and brighter. Even a very regular evening will turn into a celebration, should you bring a karaoke system in. Your granny will be happy if you give her such a present. Besides, karaoke will be a good reason to visit your granny oftener.
Who doesn’t dream of visiting Paris in the spring? Or in the summer, to take a walk along the shady streets of Rome? Or to be lazily sunbathing under the warm Egyptian sun in the winter? Travel is one of the best presents for people of any age. Changing the environment, gaining new impressions, regaining taste of life – it might be something your granny needs so much instead of another dinner set.
Ask your granny what place she would like to visit. Choose a travel agent and plan the tour in every detail: map a route, pick a hotel, take care of a transfer from the airport to the hotel, book the tours in the language she understands, assemble tips on food and places to see.
Just like singing, dancing is deeply embedded in our genes, as it is one of the most ancient forms of self-expression. To learn how to dance or spend an evening on the dancing floor is a pleasant and healthy activity. And it is quite simple for a senior person. Such dances as bachata or salsa do not ask for much stamina or particular skills. Simple movements accompanied by light Latino rhythms are more like strolling along the pond under the good weather.
It takes two or three sessions to learn how to dance them. There is a reason why senior people around the world love to dance salsa so much. It provides for the well-wishing community, physical activity, necessary at the senior age, good mood, and enhanced self-confidence. And if a couple who has spent the decades together, gets to dancing, it is the new experience and an “Indian summer” in their relationship.
A portrait, painted by a professional artist, is a simple and high-profile gift and not only for grannies. Many people dream of their portrait in an elegant frame. Nobody will argue it is a status-referring expensive gift. At the same time, a painting is a great way to show your respect and appreciation to someone you care for.
A great benefit of a portrait is that it can be painted in a certain style and colours that suit your granny’s taste. The painting will occupy a prominent place in the centre of her apartment and will fit the interior design perfectly well.
Arrange your family tree and make a grand presentation when handing this gift to your granny. It can be a poster in a hand-made frame. Or you can go for a more expensive option of carved wood. Design and material are at your discretion only.
It is not just a fantastic present but also a unique opportunity for the youngest children to learn more about their predecessors. You can be studying the family tree for hours, getting surprised how large your family is and how scattered your relations across the world.
Remember that love and respect is the greatest package for any present. Don’t forget to call your granny and greet her on the holidays. Enjoy your karaoke!
