In June our readers celebrated Father’s Day in a big way! It was so cool for us to see that so many readers took inspiration from our ideas for elderly fathers! We are truly honored and grateful.
Here are the products that were the most popular in June 2021.
List Of The Top Selling Items Our Readers Bought In June 2021
Shiatsu Neck and Back Massager with Soothing Heat
This was one of the gifts we recommended for Father’s Day and it went over big!! I truly do hope that all those wonderful Dads are enjoying this!
Drive Medical Kitchen Stool
My elderly aunt used her kitchen stool which was very similar to this one every single day! She loved to cook and this made it so much easier for her to do it.
Solid Mount For Grab Bars
This solid mount products is designed for putting grab bars into those fiberglass showers and tubs.
NOVA Waterproof Reusable Underpads
If incontinence is an issue (and it is for many older adults) consider using an underpad to help keep the bed and the person in it dry and safe.
Secure Patient Transfer Gait Belt
This gait belt is exactly like the ones that I used as an Occupational Therapist and it seems to still be a very popular product amongst our readers.
American Lifetime Extra Large Day Clock
I love this clock for anyone who is visually impaired. Comes in 5 different frame colors and it’s just such a great idea.
Joywell Armchair Caddy
Another gift idea that we recommended for Father’s Day is an armchair / sofa caddy. A great way to just keep everything you want or need in one place. What is it that they say? “A place for everything and everything in it’s place!“
Stackable Can Rack Organizer
I’m a bit of an organizer myself so seeing that so many of our readers bought this can rack just makes me so happy! Keeping a home organized and decluttered is just one way to make it as safe as possible for older adults.
Secopad Anti Slip Shower Stickers
It’s such a simple idea and so inexpensive but tub and shower adhesives like this can actually save you from slipping and injuring yourself. And today, there are so many different designs to choose from!
A Father’s Guided Journal
By far, the number one Father’s Day gift idea was this book, and others like it. Basically, a journal filled with questions for a father to fill in for his family. A great way to take down the history of your Dad’s life!
Other similar books that were also very popular include:
NKBA Kitchen and Bathroom Planning Guidelines
For anyone working on remodeling their kitchen and/or bathroom – this book is filled with the guidelines to make those rooms senior friendly.
Kidde Carbon Monoxide Detector
If I’m not mistaken, this little gadget hits our top list every single month. And why not? It’s an inexpensive simple little tool to help keep you and your family safe.
Pre Cut Transparent Anti Slip Strips
Perfect for stair treads or anywhere that you want to make the flooring less slippery!
The Toilet Night Light
A fun and practical product! I’m sure it was a very popular Father’s Day gift idea.
Spiral Handheld Shower Head
One of the products that we always recommend for a safer shower is a hand held shower head with a built in on and off switch and a mount that can be placed close to a shower chair or bench. This one fits all of that.
Double Sided Carpet Tape
Although I don’t recommend keeping rugs in a home with seniors I also know that many older adults will not give them up. So, the next best thing is to make sure that they stick to the ground and this double sided carpet tape can do just that.
This really was a hot seller this month!! I’m sure it was because of Father’s Day but what a fun gift to give to an older guy!
Yet, another fun and practical gift for older Dads are T-shirts and this one was the most popular one! I hope when I go grocery shopping next time I get to see someone wearing this! It’ll give me a chuckle.
Blurams Indoor Security Camera
Another product that I think is on our monthly best sellers list most every month. A very popular and inexpensive product that works with both Alexa and Google Assistant and has lots of features.
Blurams Baby Monitor / Dog Camera
Another Blurams product that was popular this month! Has 2 way audio, 360 degree camera and lots of other features making it a great indoor security camera.
Soft Feel Golf Balls
For older golfers, the soft feel golf balls can travel a longer distance making them perfect for anyone who may not have as strong a swing as they used to.
Magnetic Wristband Tool
A great gift for anyone who enjoys tinkering, repairing and construction. One of our Father’s Day recommendations!
Hand Crank Radio with Flashlight
Perfect for emergencies (especially during the summer during fire season in the west USA and hurricanes in the east USA).
Echo devices are really such a great device. So useful and filled with so many skills that seniors and their caregivers can take advantage of!
Reader’s Digest – Large Print
So many of us grew up with Reader’s Digest and it’s so wonderful that they offer a large print version so that older adults can continue reading it.
We hope that you get some great ideas and useful products out of this list and that they can help to make your home and lives easier and safer.
