Unique Gift Ideas for Older Parents Living in the UAE

Watching your parents grow older comes with mixed emotions. 

As their child, you feel protective - wanting to safeguard their health and wellbeing. But you also stand in awe of their accumulated wisdom and lifetime of experiences that got them here. 

Milestone birthdays or retirement provides the perfect occasion to show your appreciation for all they’ve poured into you over the years. 

And creating special memories focused just on them reconnects you in profound ways. 

Whether a weekend getaway, activity for two or experience gift, inject old-fashioned romance or quality time into your gesture. 

If you’ve run out of ideas to gift them with, you don’t have to worry about it. I’ve curated some of the best experiences for older parents living in the UAE.


Top 5 Gift Experiences for Older Parents

Now, because I don’t want to waste even a minute of your time, let’s have a look at these lovely experiences in store. 

 Three Hour Dubai Marina Yacht Tour with Live BBQ

A Three Hour Dubai Marina Yacht Tour with Live BBQ for Two

I know you’ve given them some decent gifts in the past, which is great. But have you ever thought about surprising them with a yacht tour?

And not just any yacht tour, one with BBQ and a whole bunch of other fun? Yeah, you probably whispered no.

If you asked me, I’d say it's time you gifted them something as awesome as this. 

They’ll feel like celebrities living the high life as they toast champagne while cruising along Dubai’s iconic skyline. 

Your dad will chuckle, seeing your mom’s hair blowing wildly yet beautifully with the wind. They’ll relax against plush cushions feeling the breeze as carefree laughter fills the air. 

The chef will get creative grilling up your parents’ favorite bites to enjoy al fresco on the spacious deck. Dad will steal glances at mom, still smitten after all these years, as sunshine kisses their smiling faces.

 Parents a two-night Staycation

Gift Both Your Parents a two-night Staycation in a Luxurious Beachfront Hotel

Vacations should be stressful, especially for older parents. But who doesn’t love a staycation? I know you do. It’s the same with older folks.  

So, here’s what I suggest you do. 

Get this experience voucher and let them pick from any of the 50 fabulous beachfront resorts where they can wake to sunshine streaming through floor-to-ceiling windows revealing stunning ocean vistas. 

Leisurely breakfasts on the balcony seem to pause time before lazy days spent lounging poolside feeling the sea breeze, sipping cocktails and laughing over shared memories. 

You’ll be gifting them an opportunity to luxuriate side-by-side with couples massages before watching the sunset during a beach stroll that makes them fall in love with each other all over again.

Bab Al Shams offers elegant accommodations in traditional Arabic architecture amid endless golden sand dunes.
