The year 2020 will forever be known as the year that more seniors than ever before embraced technology. The COVID-19 pandemic kept millions of our elderly population in their homes, meaning that they had to connect with loved ones in new ways. Zoom, Skype, and FaceTime became part of the lexicon in America.

Keeping up with that theme, help the senior(s) in your life embrace the high-tech lifestyle with a cutting-edge gift this holiday season. Bushwick Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing has a look at five that they are sure to love.

  1. Temperature Control Mug

It’s a fact of life that coffee or tea will cool in a mug left out in the open—until now! This temperature control mug gets charged just like a smartphone and will keep drinks hot for up to two hours. In even better news, the charging port also acts as a coaster.

  1. Car Vacuum

You don’t have to wait to take a trip to the car wash to vacuum the inside of your car. This portable vacuum comes with three different heads and the real big selling point is that it plugs in through the car’s cigarette lighter, meaning that you don’t have to lug out that long extension cord.

  1. Shiatsu Massager

Get more bang for your buck and work out those knots and sore muscles with this portable, lightweight massager. The massager molds to the user’s body and comes programmed with four different types of massages and also has a heating function.

  1. Wireless Charging Station

If your senior has embraced technology, they’re probably tired of all the cords and plugs they need to keep their devices charged. This wireless charging pad will allow them to keep everything in one place while getting rid of the clutter at the same time.

  1. Polaroid Camera

The original Polaroid camera is back, so if your loved one prefers to hold photos in their hand or in an album instead of viewing them digitally on a phone or computer, this now-retro gift will be perfect for them.
