There comes a time in a woman’s life when birthdays and birthday gifts for women aren’t such a great cause for celebration – making birthday gifts for women more difficult to buy. Some women say they’re “over the hill” at 50.
Other women aren’t even on the hill until they are at least 60. But no matter what their outlook on life, mature women need special attention on their birthdays to let them know they are still very much alive and able to enjoy life.
By the time women are mature they generally have accumulated all of the knick-knacks and trinkets they can stand. This is a period in a woman’s life when she is more inclined to de-junk and de-clutter than to collect. Kitchen utensils, household appliances and serving bowls are ho-hum. Most women who are in their later years have raised their families and are ready to enjoy their independence. Birthday gifts for women who are more mature should help them to feel active, interested, relaxed, and enlightened.
Following are a few ideas for birthday gifts for women in the later years of their lives:
A round of golf
Encourage her to get out there on the green! Even if she has never held a golf club in her hand, help her to find out what all of the excitement is about. Throw in a golf lesson if she’s tentative about trying a sport in which she has never participated. If she’s already an avid golfer, golf accessories make great birthday gifts for women.
A good book
Books make great birthday gifts for women. Whether she likes fiction or non-fiction there are hundreds of books added to the market each week and she’s bound to be enthralled by one of them. Be considerate of visual concerns. If sight is a problem, choose a publication with large letters to help her enjoy it more.
A trip to the spa
Help her feel relaxed and pampered by giving her a gift certificate to the spa. Let her choose her own treatment and encourage her to use the certificate right away. Spa treatments are fabulous birthday gifts for women of any age.
Gardening Tools and Supplies
Many women love to garden. Garden tools and supplies make great birthday gifts for women who are more mature because they encourage her to stay active and to do something she loves and enjoys.
