Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas for Baby Boomers

Category: Baby Boomer Retirement Issues

Just in case you are as desperate as we often get at this time of year, here are some very different, last-minute gift suggestions that might be “age-appropriate” for the baby boomers on your gift list:

How Not to Act Old:185 Ways to Pass for Phat, Sick, Hot, Dope, Awesome, or at Least Not Totally Lame“. By Pamela Redmond Satran. This very funny book gets rave reviews at Amazon. (recommended by our friend Linda).

Roku HD player. You might ask yourself, what the heck is a Roku HD player (and why would I want one)! Trust us on this one, if you subscribe to Netflix or rent movies, you must have this device, which lets you watch online movies and TV shows on your TV (not just your computer). It works a lot more simply than you would guess. The device connects to your internet cable or your wireless system. From there you can play Netflix, Amazon, or other movies on your TV set, using simple on-screen controls. Read the reviews to find out more – we love it!

The Beatles remastered albums. Everyone is raving about the quality of the remastered albums which use the original British recordings. We include here a link to the boxed set, from there you can order some of the single albums.

– “By Families, For Families: Guide to Assisted Living“. This isn’t your typical holiday gift topic, but it still makes a great present for a friend who is dealing with an aging parent. Assisted living author and expert Ryan Malone shares with you the secrets only revealed by someone who has made assisted living a positive and rewarding experience for his mother and family.

Pajamagrams. Very amusing and cute pajamas for sale online. The pj’s arrive in a clever carrying case.

– “100 Best Retirement Towns” from Topretirements. Give someone you love the inside story on the 100 best places to retire at Topretirements. Order the print version before 12/20/09 and get Free priority mail shipping!

Here is the link to the Topretirements store at, which has many more ideas.
Happy holidays!

Disclaimer: While we believe all of these gift ideas are very good products, we need to mention that for some of these products Topretirements will receive a commission from any sales.

  1. I just have to add this book which made me laugh out loud when I saw it in the bookstore.“How Not to Act Old:185 Ways to Pass for Phat, Sick, Hot, Dope, Awesome, or at Least Not Totally Lame“.

    Editors Note: We have added a link to this book in article above per Linda’s suggestion.
