Christmas Gifts Ideas for Convalescent Home Residents?

I'm doing a Christmas show for a local convalescent home. I'm looking at having small presents for the 50 - 75 residents of the convalescent home. Any suggestions?

Lotion, lap robe, slippers, comfy socks, fruit,ask first if you can give this. Some people would like regular or sugar-free candy, plants, calendars, flowers, lip balm. That's very thoughtful of you.

Nice bar soaps, bar soap containers, good shampoos, body wash (men, too), deodorant, socks, soft tissues, easy to grow house plants, back-scratchers, large print books.

Avoid food such as cookies since often many residents are on special diets. People with dementia often like stuffed animals, fleece laprobes/throws are inexpensive and appreciated, toiletries and lip gloss for the ladies. We hava local agency here that gets gift requests from seniors and hangs them on a tree for community members to get/give.


Ask the facility activities director for her suggestions. Many seniors enjoy little childrenss visits, perhaps a school might send a choir or a class to sing/visit. Bless you for reaching out to a deserving group that is often neglected.
