3 Alarm Options – 8″ Digital Calendar Alarm Day Clock with Extra Large Non-Abbreviated Day & Month SDC008 by Svinz – 2 Color Display SettingsFinding good gifts for senior citizens for Valentine’s Day can be tricky as it might not be the happiest day for those who are aged. Their partner in life may be gone, arthritis may flare, they may be alone, etc.
That’s why it’s even more important that you remember them on Valentine’s Day this year.
Of course, your presence is the very best gift for any senior citizen on Valentine’s Day so consider dropping by with dinner and a movie. Just spend some time talking with your elderly loved one on Valentine’s Day – they’ll be delighted with your gift of your time.
Now, on this webpage, I hope to help you identify some senior citizen gifts that you might not have thought about but are great ideas. In fact, my #1 best seller on this site is the day clock you see there to the left.
A clock that shows the day, date and time is a wonderful Valentine’s gift for anyone, let alone a senior citizen whose days may seem to always be the same. I have that same day clock in my kitchen – I love that the readout is so crisp and clear. It’s easy to see the day and date from way across the room. And, with a dimming feature that kicks in at 7 pm, it also can function as nice ambient light in the bedroom of a senior citizen.
So, without further ado, come see what I’ve deemed to be good gifts for Valentine’s Day for a senior citizen.
Each of these day clocks has great reviews on Amazon.com. I particularly like that the green once comes in a 16″ clock that would be great on a wall.

Valentine’s Day Red Bed Jackets
My Mom was always cold so I made sure to have lots of warm robes and bed jackets on her during chilly days. These red bed jackets would have been a great gift for her for Valentine’s Day – if I had only known they existed. To see more great bed jackets, visit my Warm Shawls and Bed Jackets link.

Old Time Gift Baskets
We had an old time candy store open up near my house. I wandered across it one day and came home with a whole lot of candy from the 1920’s – the years when Mom was a teenager. My own senior citizen was totally delighted to see some of the treats she remember so well. She feasted on old time caramels, chocolate straws, and the like.
Valentine’s Day is synonymous with candy, but, why not go one better and delight your senior citizen friend with a candy assortment of days gone by. For even more fun, how about giving your favorite elderly loved one a motion detector candy dispenser so their afternoon treat is right next to their easy chair?
Note: make sure of any dietary restrictions your senior citizen friend has before giving these sugary treat baskets (I have some sugar free selections below.

Valentine’s Day Flags
There are many Valentine’s Day flags that people hang outside their homes to show their holiday spirit. But, why not add a few of these within the home to brighten up a room where your favorite senior citizen spends time? Either tape them right to the wall or stick them in plants on stakes. You can even use one as a placemat when serving Valentine’s Day desert to your senior citizen loved one.

Magnetic Poetry Kits
I had this same magnetic poetry kit on my refrigerator for the 5 years Mom was with me. Mom always stopped in front of the refrigerator every day to read her new message. It was a sweet ritual.
A magnetic poetry kit is a wonderful (and inexpensive!) way to remind your elderly loved one she is, indeed, loved.

Coupon books have always been a favorite gift for my parents as they’re totally customizable! Just get some cover stock paper and make up your own coupons (or, better yet, let your kids do it!). Add stuff in like ‘1 free dinner out,’ or ‘1 free car detailing.’ If you’re not quite that creative, buy one of these coupon books from Amazon.com:

I found this adorable toilet paper while browsing for fun April Fool’s Day presents for the elderly. I love the idea of surprising your Valentine by changing out all the toilet paper with this fun stuff.
My Mom used to love to watch things grow. I’d even put the bulb end of celery in a glass so she could watch the celery re-grow. These bulb kits are sure to delight any senior citizen. Beware though, watching the flowers grow might be the only thing you hear about on those daily calls!
