Do you know someone turning 50 this year? Turning 50 is a major milestone that should be celebrated in style. Here are some birthday gift ideas for a 50th birthday that are sure to make her day.
Who wouldn’t like receiving a gift bag filled with one or more of these luxurious hair care products? A Dyson hair dryer, airwrap styler, deep conditioning hair mask or boar bristle brush will pamper and keep her hair looking healthy. And everyone appreciates a gift card for a blowout at a local salon.
Turning 50 is a great excuse to update your look and try some new makeup and tools. If she’s a makeup addict, she’ll love a new vanity mirror, set of makeup brushes or the latest palettes. You and the birthday girl can even plan to get a makeover at your favorite department store’s makeup counter!
Mark her 50th birthday with the greatest of gift ideas: a girl’s trip. You can plan a day trip, such as a visit to a local winery or go antiquing. If you really want to get away, book a longer adventure like this fall trip to Montreal or weekend in Palm Springs.
Maybe she will need some new luggage for her upcoming trip? Unlike suitcases from the past, today’s luggage offers features that make traveling easier and are way more stylish.
Packing cubes can help keep everything organized while a new leather passport case or wallet will keep everything in reach.
Is there a designer handbag she has been eyeing? There is truly no better time to splurge than when you are turning 50, and you can find beautiful bags at all different price points.
Jewelry is a wonderful way to commemorate her special day. Consider personalized jewelry that has been customized with her name, initials, birthstone, or astrological sign. And check out these lovely options by Monica Vinader.
Purchasing home décor for another can be tricky, but every time she looks at a piece of art or a framed photo, she will think of you and remember this day.
How about a beautiful vase with fresh flowers? Or set up a subscription service to send fresh flowers a few times during the year as a special treat to enjoy well after her 50th birthday.
You really can’t go wrong choosing gifts based on her hobbies and personal interests.
Fitness buff? Purchase a fitness class and wrap along with a fitness tracker.
Oenophile? Wine from their birth year makes a very thoughtful gift, but do your research before purchasing!
For the book lover, a first-edition book from their favorite author or a collection of great reads will surely make her smile!
Finally, experiences to share such as cooking classes, language classes, and concerts are all great options. Attending together will make her 50th birthday gift even more special and meaningful.
One gift that I enjoyed making and giving was a succulent terrarium.
If you are a knitter, a fabulous hand-made scarf is a gift to cherish.
You don’t even have to be “crafty” to be creative! Any related collection of items (such as the gifts of beauty above) can be put together in a gift basket and tied with a ribbon for a uniquely personal and creative gift.
If cost is a factor, organize a group to contribute towards the gift together. Pay extra attention to the gift wrapping and include a heartfelt card for a truly memorable presentation.
Finally, no matter what gift you ultimately decide, always remember:
“The best gift is giving from your heart.” — Kevin Heath
