Gift Ideas for Loved Ones Living Alone

Everyone needs to be cheered up once in a while. This can be especially true of someone who lives alone. For example, they might be isolated due to COVID-19, feel depressed, or would just love to receive a gift from someone who cares. Here are some inspiring gift ideas for loved ones living alone.

A Monthly Food or Beverage Subscription

Receiving a beverage or food subscription each month can be comforting. This can give a friend or family member something to look forward to on a regular basis. For one, a monthly coffee subscription box can be convenient, cheaper than buying from a coffee store, and fresher tasting than the coffee shop. Additionally, try encouraging a loved one to be healthier by sending them a vegan subscription box.

Classes to Get Creative

Giving a class gives loved ones a chance to get outside the house. Alternatively, they can get involved in the learning process online. Examples of classes include learning a foreign language, painting artistic objects, figure drawing, and more. Another idea is to purchase paint by number sets from an arts and crafts store online or locally to encourage creativity.

A Subscription for Reading

Being stuck at home can give a person plenty of free time for exploring intellectual pursuits. For this reason, consider giving a family member or friend a magazine or book subscription. This can help them pass the time by doing a healthy activity that exercises their brain and holds their interest. Literati, BlackLIT, and OwlCrate are superb ideas for book subscriptions, while Reader’s Digest, Wired, and National Geographic magazine are often bestsellers.

A Writing or Art Journal

Writing or creating art in a journal can give someone peace of mind and motivate them to be more creative. They can put whatever they desire on the pages and make it their own. For instance, they can draw objects found in nature, create coloring pages or write poetry, among other things. Regularly using a journal can also be healing and improve a person’s health and well-being.

A Self-Care Kit

Handing someone a self-care kit is a great way to show them how much they deserve to love themselves. Consider doing it yourself by making a unique self-care kit. Try including things like scented candles, a set of mugs, a loungewear set, a yoga mat, cozy socks, luxurious lotion, or something else.

A Sweatshirt to Inspire Happiness

Just putting on a favorite sweatshirt can make someone feel happier, less alone, and motivated to start the day. A sweater can provide warmth on cold winter days and be comforting. Try looking on Etsy for creative sweatshirts with colorful rainbows, positive messages or quotes, humorous cartoon characters to provoke laughter, and more.

Plants to Brighten Their Day

Consider sending someone flowers by using a delivery service, or give them a package of succulents. Colorful flowers can brighten a loved one’s day and put a smile on their face. While some plants require little upkeep, others take more time and effort. Be sure to choose the right one.

A gift is more than just a physical object given with the best of intentions in mind. It can be meaningful to the receiver and have the most positive effect on them. Besides this, the giver can feel a special connection to them that lasts a long time.

The Gift Of Security 
If you have loved ones living alone that have decided to age in place as seniors, or maybe are younger with special medical needs, you should consider giving the gift of a medical alert system. The gift of a medical alert system can provide not only the recipient but also their loved ones the peace of mind of knowing that help is just a click away.
