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.
Tua Trend – Facial exerciser – non-surgical facelift machine- great alternative to salon based treatments
Clarisonic cleansing system – deep cleanses the skin and allows up to 60% more of your skincare products to penetrate the skin.
SensatioNail gel nail system. Great for salon quality gel manicures at home
Silk Pillowcase: One of my personal favourite ‘finds’ of the year! Has worked wonders for the condition of my hair AND is supposed to be great for avoid ‘sleep lines’ on the face for those of us who sleep on our sides!
Beauty Products for Fab50s:
Lulu’s Miracle Glo. Does just what it says it does- applied over make-up and gives skin a lovely luminous glow!
M2 Lashes and Brow Serums. For anyone wanting longer lashes and thicker brows – we’ve had tremendous feedback from everyone who has tried these products.
Jewellery boxes: I loved these stackable mirrored jewellery boxes from John Lewis
John Lewis Website
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?
