80 Things To Do When You Turn 80

I’ve always loved the idea of following goals, reaching for new adventures, whatever they may be. I think it’s so very important to continue learning and growing, no matter what age you are. This book may just be that inspiration.

Neck and Shoulder Therapy Wrap

My elderly mom-in-law occasionally has pain in her neck and shoulders. This weighted wrap helps to relieve that pain. You can put it in the microwave to use as a heat wrap or put it in the freezer or fridge to use as a cool wrap. It weighs 3 lbs.

This can be a very good choice for anyone who suffers from muscle aches and pains.

For Outdoor Gardeners

For those women who love their outdoor gardening, why not make it just a bit easier with raised garden beds? What a fantastic gift for any 80-year-old women who love gardening.

Indoor Gardening

Not everyone can garden outdoors all year long. But with indoor gardening tools like this one, it’s easy to continue this wonderful hobby 365 days of the year.

This is a great idea for seniors who live in an area with long winters or simply can’t get out into the yard or garden any longer.

Tell Me Your Story

Not many seniors write down their life story. Many think they have nothing special to share but the truth is, we all do have something special to share and I encourage everyone to put it down on paper. Books like this can help to get the project started.

This is a very nice gift not just for her, but for the entire family too.

Large Print Books

I gift my mom-in-law large print books and she devours them! If your elderly loved one enjoys reading, consider giving them large print novels, etc. It makes reading so much easier for them.

Hand Massager

There’s almost nothing better than getting a massage wherever it is that it hurts. So if your loved one has pain in her hands, gift her a hand massager that she can use whenever she needs to.

Get Better Sleep

Many older adults have trouble sleeping. If her hearing is fairly intact, a sound machine may be able to help her to sleep better.

Car Cane

Something as simple as getting in and out of a car can become difficult for some older adults. We’ve gifted this car cane to several of our friends and family and they all love it. You can watch one of our friends talking about it here.

Crafts to Keep You Young

Keeping up your creativity as you get older is vital to a healthy senior life. Take a look at craft projects like this one for your senior loved one.

Safety Grab Bars

If she hasn’t yet added grab bars to her bathroom or other areas throughout her house, she may be hesitant to spend the monies. But we all know how important her safety is. consider giving them (along with the installation) as a gift.

For Tea Lovers

This beautiful tea pot along with this lovely wooden tea box can make for a wonderful gift!

Single Serve Keurig Brewer

Whether she loves coffee or tea (or both), this single serve brewer can give it to her quickly and easily.

A Subscription To Amazon’s Audible Service

Listening to books can be a great past time for many seniors so if your loved one enjoys this activity, then how about gifting her a subscription to Amazon’s Audible program?

This can be the perfect 80th birthday gift for anyone who enjoys listening to books.


These headphones can be used to hear the television better or to listen to a podcast on their phone or music, etc. It’s an easy and comfortable way to enjoy these activities.

A Fitbit Watch

Help her to stay active and mobile (and also track her) with this Fitbit watch equipped with GPS. It has a lot of great features, but I love that the numbers on the face of the watch are larger than most, making it easier to read.

Adjustable Laptop Desk (For Books Too)

This great little laptop desk has cushions on the bottom so it’s comfortable on your lap. Can be used for a tablet, phone, laptop or books!

Eyeglass Stand

This beautiful eyeglass stand can sit on your nightstand so you have a safe place to put your eyeglasses into when you go to bed. There are some funny ones as well, so check them out here.

Cell Phone Carrier

Cell phones can save a life, literally. They can be used in case of an emergency but in order to use them, they have to be accessible. Many older adults simply are not used to carrying these things around with them so that’s where a cell phone carrier like this can help.

LED Candles

I recommend that seniors avoid using candles in their home. The risk of fire is simply too great. But if candlelight is something she enjoys, then choose the next best thing. LED candles! These come with a remote control so she can turn them on and off from the sofa!

Sofa or Recliner Caddy

We have so many things these days, cell phones, remotes, books, etc. Sitting on the sofa to rest can often be interrupted by needing to get up and get something. So why not put a caddy nearby so that everything you need is right where you need it.

Walking Poles

If your senior loved one loves to walk, she may greatly benefit from using walking poles! Not only will they help to give her some upper body exercise but they can help her to keep safe as well. Not just to help her balance, but to help protect her if she is confronted by a stray dog.

For The Artists

If painting and art is her thing, then gift her a wonderful set of just about anything she would need for her craft! Perfect for beginners and artists alike.

Birdwatching Binoculars

If she enjoys watching for birds either from her backyard or out on a hike, she’ll love these binoculars that can help to bring those beautiful birds into full view!
