When it comes to the holidays and gift-giving, it’s always great fun to find just the right gift for family members. When I think about myself, though, sometimes my little brain comes up empty. I feel like I have everything I need and am grateful for that.
Realistically, though, some thoughtful Christmas gift ideas for women over 50, like us, got me to thinking about some of the wonderful products and garments I’ve tried and become attached to. So I’d love to share them with you!
Just like the 12 days of Christmas, I have twelve suggestions that you might want to add to your own holiday wish list. Some are practical and functional, some taste good, others smell nice, and a few are just because!

12 Christmas Gift Ideas for Women Over 50
We know all too well how our body shape changes with age. Our skin, once firm and supple (glowing, too!), has taken on a drab appearance with pesky lines, wrinkles, and sags.
Even though we’ve pushed past menopause, we can still experience warm flushes that can hinder our sleep.
And, have you noticed that your tootsies just aren’t what they used to be? They need a little bit of extra love, too.
Gift Ideas to Help You Look Good and Feel Great
1 | Covered Perfectly Apparel
So many women tell me that they’re frustrated with a changing body that just doesn’t cooperate anymore when it comes to putting an outfit together and feeling good in it.
Our friends at Covered Perfectly have created a niche for women over 50 that addresses the top half of the equation. Because our bodies look different and we carry extra weight around the middle, their fashions are proportioned appropriately for this body shape: not so large it looks like a tent, and not so tight that it hugs places it shouldn’t.
My favorite is the Micro Modal Collection. This fabric is amazing! It lays well, flows graciously, and washes with care nicely.
Here’s what the folks at Covered Perfectly have to say about this fabric:
MicroModal® is something truly special. The fiber is made of European beechwood, is completely natural and produced in Austria. This natural composition makes it a breathable fabric, suitable for wearing close to the skin. It’s described as the softest fabric in the world and is so gentle it feels like a second skin.CoveredPerfectly.com
They offer more than tops, too. You’ll find jackets, skirts, vest, and more. Check it out and see what you might want to add to your Christmas Wish List!

2 | Cool Jams Moisture Wicking Sleepwear
Our sleeping habits can change as we get older, have you noticed? I sure have. Sleep has always come fairly easily to me, with a 7-hour a night stretch (well, except for a tinkle break) many times.
One of the things that can interrupt our beauty sleep is our changing body temperature. Whether it’s because of hormones, stress, what we’re eating or drinking, or our overall health, it’s no fun to lie awake at night, staring at the ceiling.
Take a proactive approach as well as find something fun for your Christmas gift list, and check out what Cool Jams has to offer. I am not a nightgown kind of a girl, so I love the capri / tank top set shown in the image above.
If you’re feeling generous, Cool Jams is not just for us girls. There are some great gift ideas for men, too. You can even find bedding that will help you stay cooler at night!
3 | Stocking Stuffer Alert: Bombas Socks
What first attracted me to the Bombas brand was their One Purchased = One Donated commitment. And they mean it. As of this writing they have donated over 50 million items to people who need them. How awesome is that?
What has kept me wearing Bombas no show socks for the last few years is how well they feel, and perform. I prefer the no-show style of sock, and I also am really happy when the socks stay put on my feet as I walk. Particularly when walking for exercise.
Some brands of socks scrunch up, wiggle around, and are just very annoying. Not these puppies.
I wear the cushioned no-show socks, and they are awesome. They’ll fit quite nicely into a Christmas stocking, too!
Bombas offers a variety of socks for men, women, and kids as well as other personal items like underwear, t-shirts, and slippers.
4 | Personalized Skin Care from Proven
It’s been a journey for me to find skin care that really works for my maturing skin. Really maturing skin…like, every day it gets older. I know, yours does, too. And if you’re like me, you want to look youthful in a natural kind of way.
When I found PROVEN about a year ago, I was excited about the possibility of a personalized skin care plan created just for my skin, my age, even my location. It had great promise!
And I can confidently say that after a year as a PROVEN customer, I am more than satisfied with how the cleanser, day moisturizer with SPF, and night cream have performed.
If you’re still searching for skin care that will help you look and feel your youthful best, think about adding PROVEN to your holiday wish list. It’s a subscription service that can be customized, and it’s not hard to cancel.
But I think you might love it! Read my review of Proven Skin Care.
5 | A Natural Face Lift with Facial Magic
If you’ve been wishing for the opportunity to give a natural face lift a try, this might be the perfect addition to your holiday wish list.
I’m an avid proponent of natural aging, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to let myself turn into a wrinkly-faced old lady. I’m to vain for that. But I also know that going down the road of fillers and surgeries is not for me.
Facial Magic is a wonderful, natural, creator-supported program that will give you positive results over time, usually within about 6 to 9 weeks.
It’s not incredibly expensive – about $150 one time – but still, it might be more than you’re able to pay. Unless, of course, it’s Christmas! This could be a game-changer for you, my friend.

Gift Ideas for Your Taste Buds
6 | Coffee…Give Me Coffee
If you’re a coffee lover like me, anything java-related will bring a smile to your face.
Do you want to drink and enjoy your coffee? I highly recommend Bean Box, award-winning roasters who roast in small batch microlots for the best flavor and experience.
I love the Coffee Tasting Subscription, which includes 4 coffees each month in a 1.8 oz. tasting format. You can brew several cups of each and enjoy an ongoing variety of blends.
They offer a variety of holiday-themed gift samplers, too, like the Twelve Mornings of Coffee, the specialty coffee advent calendar. How much fun is that?
Check out what Bean Box Coffee has to offer, and decide what to put on your wish list!
How about proudly wearing coffee-loving jewelry:
Proudly wear YOUR coffee and donut earrings. I love mine, and always get comments on them because they are so cute and unique:

7 | Blooming Tea from TeaBloom
If you love pretty things and you enjoy drinking tea, discover the beautiful world of Teabloom. Who knew brewing a cup of tea could be such an experience? A stress reliever? A time of reflection?
That’s exactly what you an experience with the blooming teas from TeaBloom. From the beautiful glass teapots, to the wide array of blooming teas, to gift sets, personal tea makers, tea tumblers, tea timers, and more, it’s a lovely place to spend some time.
I have one of their lovely little glass teapots, and although I don’t bring it out often, when I do it is a wonderful time spent watching my tea flower bloom, then enjoying the light, fragrant tea.
You’re not a tea drinker? I have two suggestions for you: 1) give it a try and maybe you’ll change your mind, and 2) these make beautiful, unique gifts.

It contains an amazing and creatively placed number of pockets, zippered areas, and secret compartments that hold everything you’ll need for an afternoon shopping trip or a day at Disneyworld (trust me…it is SO convenient at Disneyworld!)

9 | Multi-Functional Carry On Luggage
When I was traveling often between Florida and Michigan, I discovered the ultimate efficiency of this cute little under seat carry on luggage. Not only is it really cute, it’s amazingly functional as well as petite.
The expanding handle and rollers are so convenient, and the Lilly Bloom luggage line comes in a variety of sizes as well as fabric finishes.
It’s affordable and can be used for many other uses besides stepping onto an airplane.

10 | Affordable Fitness Trackers
Anyone who spends time on this site knows that I am committed to a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise. And, I like to keep track of my steps. But I don’t want to pay hundreds of dollars doing it.
So, I’ve found several affordable fitness trackers that work quite nicely. They are varying sizes and shapes, some offer a few more bells and whistles than others, but they all do the basic job very well.
If you need a new tracker, or perhaps have never invested in one, check out my post and see if there might be something you could add to your Christmas wish list.

There is something about the style and colors used in the design and creation of the earrings from the folks at Yellow Owl Workshop that I just love. The coffee and donut earrings highlighted earlier in this post are their design. They always bring a smile to my face and comments from those who see them.
If you enjoy wearing earrings that are not too large, are anything but a matching set, and are always fun, check out these examples that I curated for you:
