When planning this year’s Christmas gifts, don’t forget the perfect gifts for seniors that may be located right here in town! Birmingham has numerous local shops that provide creative gifts for grandparents, parents, and elderly loved ones.
Our team at Home Care Associates has compiled a list of our favorite shops, services, and experiences that in-home care clients will love! The local market provides thoughtful presents and activities that make the gift-giving experience extra special.
Help your loved one recall all their favorite things about the city they call home through shopping locally in Birmingham.
Gift and Flower Shops
Byndle is a gift shop in the city that creates product box bundles with an assortment of items that remind customers why they love Birmingham. The gift boxes contain products like chocolates, jams and jellies, coffee, candles, and soap, all made in or around the city. In-home care clients are sure to love their holiday-themed boxes, such as the Cheer Box, which includes a Wooden Cheese Board by City Hardwoods, Moonscape Peppermint Bark by Chocolata, and Winter Cranberry Conserve by Stone Hollow Farmstead.
If you are more interested in customizable gifts for seniors, Place Makers is a laser-cut printing shop specializing in custom tree ornaments. Great gifts for grandparents may be ornaments with their home and last name engraved in them. Another idea might be to purchase a set of ornaments in the shape of the State of Alabama. Whichever product you may choose, the customization creates a sense of love for in-home care clients.
Treat your loved ones to a pampering day for the holidays with self-care service gifts for seniors. Service sessions provide a unique activity-based present that in-home care clients may generally have difficulty accessing. At Jeremy Stephens Salon, clients can book hair services, facials, and eyebrow and eyelash appointments. The salon is well-equipped with safety procedures to help keep your loved ones safe during their service appointment.
If a hair appointment does not intrigue the individual you are shopping for, consider booking an appointment at a spa or nail salon. Options include Lake Shore Nails and Spa, The Retreat Day Spa, and Life Touch Massage. Our in-home care clients at Home Care Associates value being cared for, so this holiday season, shower them in self-care services located in Birmingham!
The best gift we can give an elderly individual is quality time and memories.
So book a local activity you and your loved one can do together to make their Christmas season extra special.
Asthetik Photo Studio and Event Space is located in downtown Birmingham and provides a photo shoot location and recommends professional photographers. You can create priceless memories by booking your family a private session centered around your senior. Home Care Associates recommends scheduling the photos to be taken at least two months before gift-giving. Family portraits in photo frames, memory books, and calendars are unforgettable gifts for seniors.
Another excellent idea for crafty seniors, visit Paddywax Candle Bar. They offer custom candle-making sessions and take-home candle-making kits that can be paired with virtual tutorials on their website. If you cannot be in person with your loved one, ask a companion from Home Care Associates to help your senior with an at-home kit! Our employees love being able to create new memories and experiences with our in-home care clients!
