There’s nothing like a good night’s sleep, and often senior women fight to get the right amount of zzz’s. Here are a couple of thoughtful household items for the over-50 dream-chasers on your gift list.
Often, noises are the culprit of sleep interruption. Gift her with a beautiful white-noise machine that not only looks great beside her bed, but drowns out unwanted sounds such as barking dogs or traffic noise. Include a silk pillowcase, fleece slippers or a bottle of lavender pillow spray to give her the most restful night possible.
Another excellent gift idea for peaceful slumber over 50 is a blanket. Whether you choose a popular weighted blanket or simply a cozy luxury throw, sweet dreams are sure to follow for her. Send the blanket along with a collection of aromatherapy lotions or an oil diffuser for the perfect soothing gift.
If she is the creative type, you’ll find awesome gifts for senior women. Whether she likes to paint, draw, take photographs or write: Gift ideas abound.
For the artist, present her with a mixed media art set. Nicer collections include oil paints, acrylics, fine brushes, pencils and chalk pastels to suit any creative style. You can even rest the gift on an open easel or include a blank canvas or a gift certificate for an advanced art class.
If your gift recipient is a child at heart, you can find wonderful mandala coloring books for adults. These mesmerizing outlines allow for quiet reflection and meditation as the artist colors in the beautiful designs. Wrap the coloring books and a box of colored pencils in a bright scarf with a mandala pattern she can replicate.
For the over-50 woman who loves to make her own jewelry, tap into the gorgeous handmade jewelry kits available at craft stores. High-quality beads, natural stones and brightly painted cords open up a world of possibilities for the creative woman. Include a beautiful decorative jewelry organizer to sit on her table or hang on her wall.
Senior women who indulge in captivating hobbies are excited to receive gifts related to their interests. Bring on the smiles with perfectly selected goodies designed just for hobbyists.
An avid bird watcher will delight in a bird feeder designed to attach directly to a window. Once installed, she can watch the birds up close from the comfort of her home. Send along some birdseed or a field guide to local wild birds.
Gift ideas for women over 50 can include awesome gardening goodies. Whether inside or outside, she can grow fruit, veggies, herbs or flowers for fun. Indoor herb kits, outdoor gardening kits, exotic bulb collections or gorgeous bonsai tree kits are all perfect for those sporting green thumbs or even just beginning. Add gardening books specific to the kit you choose, or a small plant to get her started.
Sometimes, women over 50 enjoy keeping sharp with puzzles and games. If the over-50 woman in your life loves to get lost in the challenges, grab mind-bending puzzle books or spectacular jigsaw puzzles to provide ongoing entertainment. Provide her with gourmet popcorn, delectable chocolates or savory teas to enjoy while she spends time with her puzzles.
Speaking of yummy treats, you can score great gift ideas with ongoing subscription boxes. Cheeses, wines, fruits or exotic experiences from countries around the world are all available as monthly subscriptions. Select two or more complementary subscriptions and suggest a monthly get-together with friends to sample and share.
Not all of your women friends over 50 need or want actual gifts. Discover her favorite charity and make a donation in her name. The group benefits, and she will be delighted for one less thing to dust. If possible, arrange to take her to visit the location of her donation recipient.
Another way to honor the woman over 50 with a non-clutter gift is to “adopt” an animal in her name or have a celestial body named after her. There are even organizations that allow you to buy a tiny piece of protected property and receive the title of Lady.
