Gift Ideas: 50th Birthday Woman: What To Keep In Mind
If you are looking for a gift for a woman over 50, there are some things to keep in mind which will help you with your choice. She may be an empty nester and is therefore entering a very different stage of life than what she has been used to. A mom whose children are now grown and off on their own has probably spent most of her life caring for the needs of others and now it’s her time to receive some TLC and attention. Keep this in mind when selecting a suitable gift.
At the same time, women in their fifties may also really enjoy looking back on past, pleasant memories. They now may find that they have more time for reflection and would love to be reminded of the special times spent with family over the years.
Presents That Pamper
The special lady you are buying for probably has earned some pampering. Here are some gift ideas which say “you deserve some you time.”
A Day At A Spa
Pamper your special lady by treating her to a gift certificate for a day at a spa near her. Most spas will let you choose the type of package you want which could include relaxing massages, soothing facials, or foot and hand therapies. She’ll appreciate the well-deserved break from the stresses of her daily life.
Price $150 – $300 depending on the package you choose
Nails Done for Two
If your budget won’t allow for a spa day, why not opt for something a little less expensive but just as meaningful and enjoyable. Getting your nails done is fun but it’s even more fun if you can share the experience with someone else. A personal favourite gift was when my daughter paid for us to get our nails done together. The beautiful nails were a wonderful bonus, but the real gift was the quality time spent with my daughter catching up on what was going on in our busy lives.
Price $30 per person plus tip
Presents That Bring Back Memories
As you get older, it’s great to be able to look back at the wonderful memories you’ve made. The following gifts are designed to help her remember momentous events in her life and keep them close to her heart.

Presents For New Beginnings
Many women over 50 may find themselves with some extra time on their hands because their family has grown and no longer needs so much of their time. She may be feeling a little down because of the empty nest syndrome, however, this may be a great time for her to begin try something new or make some changes at home. The following gifts have been suggested with this “fresh start” in mind.
Gourmet Cooking Lessons
Now that the kids are gone, she may want to try her hand at some new cooking styles. Perhaps giving her gourmet cooking lessons would be a big hit. And since you were the one to give her the gift in the first place, chances are she will want to treat you to one or more of her culinary creations.
Price $75 – $200 depending on the type of class
