100 Gifts for Baby Boomers

From Adaptable Tablet Holders to Chalkboard Cheese Platters

— December 3, 2015 — Life-Stages
These gifts for baby boomers are perfect for anyone who is over the age of 50. By now, many baby boomer have retired or are entering their last few years of work. With this in mind, there are a number of gifts that will help baby boomers enjoy their golden years.

For the hobbyist on your list, why not opt for something that will help the recipient enjoy their favorite activity. For example, there are adult coloring books that allow boomers to get in touch with their creative side. There are also pocket-sized cocktails kits that help anyone whip up the perfect drink.

For boomers that are eager to keep up with new technology, a tech-oriented gift is a perfect idea. Boomers may not spend their days browsing Instagram and Twitter, but they likely use a smartphone or tablet to keep in touch with friends and family. Some high-tech gifts for baby boomers include adaptable tablet holders, retrofying smartphone radios and sleek wooden amplifiers.
