One final piece of advice before I share some specific ideas – don’t feel like you need to spend a lot of money on a gifts for women over 60.
Early in our relationship, I told her that I didn't really care about gifts much. Source: Shutter Stock urnotmywife: Bringing lunch to my job. Since she leaves for work before I wake up I don't usually get to see what she's wearing and by the time I get home she's already in her relaxing attire.

I made an offhand joke about how I'd rather play with army men with her than get a new i Pod.. We had our fights, or struggles, but when I saw that box of army men, seeing how she remembered an offhand comment from such a long time ago..was the most thoughtful gift I've ever received, to this day. Still looks nice but it's something about seeing her in head to toe business attire that makes me want to... Men aren't all simplistic in the sense we all only want sex and food, just like flowers isn't the be all and all for a girl.
Get him something related to an inside joke, or something like the example above.

Flowers are nice because they show that someone cares.
Do something that shows you care and know that person.
One of the worst things that you can do is to choose a gift based on aging stereotypes or, worse, “anti-aging” messages.
