Christmas parties are the time of year when older people like to find their families and share moments of conviviality. Christmas is very often for seniors the most important holiday of the year, synonymous with sharing and reunion. Are you running out of gift ideas for your parents, grandparents, friends, relationships, neighbors? You don’t know what might be useful to them and make them happy?

Not easy to choose a gift adapted to the needs and well-being of the seniors. They do not have the same desires, tastes or needs in their daily lives, and often have already ”All that is needed”. Our brands Hestec®, Orium® and Mundus® offer you some gift ideas suitable for seniors and gifts that can also make their daily life easier!


10 Gift Ideas for Seniors

1- Talking clocks or clock, with time markers Orium®

What better than a clock to answer the problems of temporal landmarks. So according to our models, the clock shows the time (24 hours), the full date (day, date, month and year) in all letters and in the order of play. Our Orium® clocks are also developed to adapt to other age-related disorders such as vision or hearing disorder. Indeed, for visual impairments, the information is in large print with a perfect light and contrast that ensure a good reading and a good readability from afar. For hearing impairments, we offer clock and alarm clocks with voice announcements.


2- The stockings puller Stockeez of the Hestec® brand

Many old people have to put down compression stockings daily. Why not offer senior citizens a helping hand to maintain autonomy in clothing? The Stockeez (product awarded with a bronze medal at the Silver Show this year) allows you to easily and self-thread the compression stockings, quietly, without lowering and avoiding musculoskeletal disorders.
