What do you buy the woman who has everything for Christmas or birthday?

gifts for women over 50 imageArticle by Ceri Wheeldon

I know that every Christmas and birthday my own family panic over what to buy for me- so there must a million other people wondering what to buy women over 50 as a gift. I’ve put together a few ideas – some practical, some quirky and some very indulgent!

I’m hoping my own hubby reads and takes notes!!

Personally I am not a keen fan of salon facials etc, but do enjoy taking a quiet half hour to myself for ‘treats’ at home.

Home beauty and anti-ageing gadgets

Here are just some of the home beauty gadgets you may want to try:

Jade Roller – natural, soothing, great for maintaining facial contours and pretty on a dressing table.

Downton Abbey fan? Then there is always the Downton Abbey boxset!

Call the Midwife fan? The book that goes with the series is lovely- wonderful pictures and the stories that influenced the characters loved in the series. A nostalgic look at a vocation and times still remembered by many!

Any great gift ideas to add?

Merry Christmas!!
