The older we get the more we accumulate, cherish and care for, so finding unique and inspiring Christmas gifts for the 50-something women in our lives can be difficult.
We all know the feeling of trying to find the perfect present for the woman who seems to have it all, but often overthinking it can be the worst thing you can do.
My advice is to keep it simple. I pick pieces that perhaps my loved one would enjoy, but wouldn’t necessarily buy.
Self care is often encouraged, but not everyone invests in luxurious beauty products, beautiful homeware pieces or even feel-good garments.
If you’re worrying over what to get the 50-something woman in your life, fear not. I’ve done some Christmas gift investigating and sourced the most stylish options out there.
From subtle scents to show-stopping sparkles, there’s something for everyone – so hopefully even the pickiest person will enjoy one of these gifts. I know I would!
