I am 64 so not into heavy duty workouts but I do lift weights, walk every day with my dog, bought the DVD "Tony And The Folks" from Beachbody, and have a mat. Seems to help me keep fit. I am also gardening now so more exercise which I quite enjoy.
I love the traditionals - home gym, dvds, etc. Here are some you may not have seen before that are great additions: Trek Desk (allows you to walk and work at the same time); Manta and StingRay - take the pain out of back and front squats by cushioning the bar while helping you keep it in the right place; Versagripp - use this to help pick up heavy weights without overly pressuring your forearms; paceweights - if you have metal dumbbells, you can increase your weights by half pound increments; kettleguard - best cushion for wrists I've seen when using a kettlebell; TRX - great travel strength training approach; The Grid foam roller - small and hollow, so you can pack your foam roller in a suitcase!
