2023 Holiday Gift Guide for Baby Boomers

The holidays are upon us yet again! While it can be the most joyous time of the year, trying to find that perfect, unique gift can also be stressful. We've got you covered. Below, you'll see our picks for unique, practical, and fun gifts that we know baby boomers will love and appreciate.

For the Game Lovers

While baby boomers may have a nostalgic fondness for classic board games like Scrabble and Risk, they can also enjoy newer games incorporating modern mechanics and themes. For example, Codenames is a word-based party game that challenges players to give and guess clues to uncover agents while avoiding the opposing team's agents. It's a great game for social gatherings. We also love Ticket to Ride, a railway-themed board game that is easy to learn and involves strategic thinking. It's an excellent choice for those who enjoy planning and building routes.

For the Music Buffs

Choosing a gift for baby boomers who love music can involve finding items that enhance their music experience, tap into nostalgia, or offer new ways to enjoy their favorite tunes. If they don't already have one, a high-quality turntable can be a fantastic gift for someone who appreciates vinyl records. Retro looks combined with the convenience of modern technology make the Victrola Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Portable Suitcase Record Player with Built-in Speakers an affordable record player ideal for beginners & vintage enthusiasts. The portable design lets you take your tunes anywhere and makes it a breeze to listen to your favorite music from decades ago.

For the Hobbyists

Most retirees look forward to picking up a hobby once they have more free time. Consider personalized gear related to their hobby, such as custom-engraved gardening tools, a personalized fishing tackle box, monogrammed golf balls, or artist-quality paintbrushes with a personalized touch. If the budget allows, you can also consider an experience related to their hobby, such as tickets to a gardening show, a fishing charter, a golf lesson with a professional, or an art workshop.

For the Grandparents

For new grandparents, the How to Babysit a Grandma and a Grandpa boxed set is sure to please. Featuring the New York Times bestselling titles How to Babysit a Grandma and How to Babysit a Grandpa, this cheerful two-book set is the perfect gift from a grandkid to a grandparent. Add grandchildren's handprints or footprints in the book for a special touch!


For the Fashion Lovers

Consider gifting them a carefully selected vintage clothing or accessory item from a bygone era. This could be a classic handbag, a pair of sunglasses, a scarf, or a piece of jewelry that reflects the fashion trends of their youth. For baby boomers into more current fashion trends, we love the always stylish and incredibly comfortable Krazy Larry Pants for Grandmom and the tried and true Dockers Henry Wool-Blend Top Coat for Grandpop.

The Luxury Buy

For those with a more significant gift budget, consider a gift that will help clear clutter and eliminate sore muscles. Versa Lift™ is a powerful electric lift that takes your home organization and storage to the next level. You can send garage clutter to your attic and out of sight with push-button ease! Occasional-use items like ice chests and luggage don't have to take up valuable floor space. You can send them away when not in use and return them in seconds when you need them. Versa Lift™ is far more convenient than a mini-storage and eliminates monthly payments that continue to add up. You get convenient push-button access to hidden storage space you already own... storage that is always within easy reach, anytime, day or night!

For the Body

It's no secret that as we age, our bodies can take longer to recover from physical strain. Aches and pains and sore muscles seem to happen more easily and more often. The Flyby F1Pro Massage Gun's 6 unique massage heads target key muscle groups to address therapeutic needs. By increasing blood circulation and eliminating lactic acid buildup, this massager can increase mobility and help relieve soreness for any part of the body.

Our hands can also get weaker as we get older and arthritis becomes more prevalent. This can make opening jars a struggle and downright uncomfortable. An electric jar opener solves this problem and can ensure your favorite boomer never has to quit on a jar of salsa that just won't open!

Stocking Stuffers

Featured on Shark Tank and QVC, the Click & Carry allows for equal weight distribution of bags (plastic, paper, or canvas) and other heavy objects with comfortable gel padding to cushion your shoulders and hands. The Click & Carry is lightweight and small and can be easily thrown into your purse, backpack, or car trunk. Say goodbye to awkward bag-holding, sore fingers, and arm muscles. Get one for yourself and toss it into your favorite boomer's stocking.

Workman's Games & Puzzles to Keep Your Brain Young Page-A-Day is the perfect stocking stuffer for those looking to strengthen their brain power. Learning new things and constantly challenging ourselves are vital for making the most of our brains. This desk calendar delivers a year of entertaining mental workouts that take just a few minutes each day and literally help regrow your brain cells. These lively puzzles are designed to target vital cognitive functions through word games, logic conundrums, spatial challenges, trivia questions, and more. Apply your mind, have fun, and build up your gray matter—at any age.
