Christmas Gift Ideas for a 55-Year-Old Woman


So Christmas comes around again and you are looking for a gift. Whether the 55-year-old female person you need the gift for is your mother, who seems to have everything she needs and many of the things she wants; a work colleague whom you have known for scores of years; or just any other person, you can choose from many suitable and tasteful ideas.

A Living Gift

  • Plants make a great gift, especially when they are well-presented in a stylish pot, the bigger the better. Bromeliads are a good choice because they come in so many different varieties and they multiply easily. Most garden shops have some of the rarer varieties with interesting variegated leaves; they look perfect on patios, verandas and even as indoor plants. Alternatively, you can put them in the garden and let them multiply. For the woman with a tiny apartment, maybe the miniature varieties, Tillandsias, will be more suitable. They are air plants that can be mounted on a piece of cork or driftwood and hung on the wall.

A Lasting Gift

  • Deciding on a lasting Christmas gift for a 55-year-old woman may require some prior knowledge of her taste and home décor color scheme. A small Persian or Turkish rug or even a Navaho rug is something useful, tasteful and exquisite to look at. Handmade rugs are intricately made by traditional methods, usually on a loom and they can last for generations if cared for properly and would be welcomed by most women.

A Lavish Gift

  • With maturity also comes the appreciation of the finer things in life; a 55-year-old woman knows quality when she sees it and may have a deeper appreciation of luxury items than younger people. Lavish gifts can include gourmet foods, packaged in a basket with a nice bottle of wine in the top. Most delicatessens will custom-pack a basket with items of your choice. This is a fabulous gift for the lady of 55 who loves cooking and enjoys gourmet food. Don’t forget to add some fine chocolate, too.

Digital Frames

  • Digital frames are extremely popular with people in their 50s and would suit a woman for Christmas. Loaded with old family Christmas photos, this is an exceptional present to open on Christmas day. And when she figures out how to use it, she can take it to work for her desk or use it at home. Digital frames come in different sizes of both the wall mounting and free standing versions and are shipped with a charger.
