Finding the best gift to give a special friend or relative requires a little of your time, as well as some research regarding the hobbies and interests of the person. If you want to buy a gift for a woman who's around the age of 60, consider that many women of this age have retired from work or have slowed down from their daily activities. Women in this age group enjoy spending their leisure time with their friends, playing with their grandchildren and enjoying quiet time with themselves.
