gift suggestions for 75 year old male who has everything, needs nothing, wants nothing, married, healthy, homebody?
Hi, and welcome back to Just Answer.

May I ask your relationship to the man you would like to buy the gift for, and also, what are some of his hobbies or things he enjoys to do? If he is retired, what was his occupation?

Thanks for all your additional detail,

Husband. Enjoys watching Football (NFL), arena, and His hobby is creating his own cds from music in his 'music library'. He is a retired businessman, and has been retired 25 years
Hi again, and thanks for your reply with additional and helpful information.

You can't go wrong with a gift card to his favorite restaurant, movie theatre, performing arts center, museum, enjoyable activities along that line, of course for two, as you will go with him. If he's a homebody and doesn't like to go out that much, gift cards to companies that deliver foodstuffs (from steaks to pizza, to cakes/cookies, or even local restaurants that deliver) or other items, might be a good idea. A giftcard for 'Give Anything', let's him choose what he wants from their broad selection.

Other great ideas are a dvd player (or a portable one) if he doesn't have one yet, with some movies/sports programs on dvd, you know he will enjoy. If he lives in a climate where it is cold in the winter, a cozy robe and slippers or a beautiful scarf and gloves might be appreciated. If he's into electronics and likes to read, a Kindle or Nook reader or gift certificate to Amazon or Barnes and Noble is also a good idea. Barnes and noble also has a music department with cd's.
