Perfect Gifts for Your Favorite Las Vegas Retiree


By Lis Lammers - December 11, 2015

Gift shopping for a retired family member or friend can sometimes be a bit daunting.  Many times these folks have downsized to a smaller home, are on-the-go traveling or have little interest in receiving more knick-knacks, trinkets or baubles to display and eventually store.  Instead, when putting on your “gift giving hat” consider a Gift of Experiences!

Looking for ideas?  Here are a few of Home Life Concierge’s favorite things…

Gifts to Savor:  Coffee, Tea, Hot Chocolate & Amusements
Whether your favorite senior is living in a winter wonderland or the desert of Las Vegas, a gift basket of their favorite hot beverages is ideal.  Include a special coffee/tea cup or even an insulated travel mug, plus cookies, scones and biscuits.  Check out the many gift ideas offered through www.starbucks.com or www.teavana.com or visit the local stores in Vegas.
  
For those puzzlers, card-sharks or bibliophiles, add some books, crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, magazines and playing cards to make it an extra special gift to enjoy.  And if you’re at a complete loss of what books or games to purchase, add a Barnes and Noble or Amazon gift card. Check it out at www.barnesandnoble.com or www.amazon.com
 
 
Gifts to Invigorate:   Outdoor Sports and Recreation
When shopping for seniors who prefer activities in the open-air, consider purchasing a gift card to their favorite golf course or an annual pass to a state or national park.

Gift a Round of Golf  
Las Vegas has a wide variety of golf courses that are open year-round.  Some local favorites are: Gift of Nature
Las Vegas is blessed with some incredible natural wonders.  And for those seniors who are invigorated by the great outdoors, treat them to the America the Beautiful – National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass. 
 
For just $10, you can purchase a lifetime pass for your favorite senior age 62 and over.  The pass provides access to, and use of, Federal recreation sites that charge an Entrance fee.  With the pass, seniors can visit any National Park including local favorites such as Red Rock Canyon, Lake Mead, Zion National Park and Death Valley National Park.
 
Visit www.redrockcanyonlv.org/redrockcanyon/fees/ for more information!
 
 
Gifts to Entertain and Educate
Broadway shows, philharmonic orchestra, and museums are great for those who appreciate an afternoon or evening of wonder and amazement. 

The Smith Center in Las Vegas
Located off-the Strip, the Smith Center offers Las Vegas residents a wide variety of live performing arts shows and productions.  For theatre lovers, an ideal gift may be tickets to one of the national touring Broadway shows.  Shows scheduled for 2016 include The Wiz, Riverdance, Cabaret, Steel Magnolias and many more.  Tickets can be purchased for an entire series of productions or a specific show!
 
The Smith Center is also home to the Nevada Ballet Theatre and the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
