What a practical woman over 50 really wants for Christmas

What a practical woman over 50 really wants for Christmas

I get tired of gift guides full of things I couldn’t care less about like scarves that scratch my neck, a glass terrarium, a zodiac necklace, another oil diffuser or trendy travel mug.  Women our age (50 and fab) are hard to buy for because we are at the point in our lives that if we want something we go and buy it.  But we usually put everyone else first and don’t actually go buy those things for ourselves.  So, I think having a list of what a practical woman over 50 really wants for Christmas would be super helpful.  Plus I’m joining in with several other fabulous bloggers to give you some inspiration this Christmas season!  😉


What a Practical Woman Over 50 Really Wants for Christmas

What Women over 50 really want for Christmas and Blog Hop!


Click on the links below for quick access to each fantastic gift idea!

Twelve pair of reading glasses – So we can find a pair when we need them (minus the pair we can’t find sitting on our head).

The Shark Duo Clean vacuum – It’s to make our life easier so we can spend time doing fun things like reading a magazine.

Alexa – Turn on music, make grocery lists, ask weather questions… all within earshot.

PhoneSoap Smartphone Sanitizer – This is fantastical!  Who wouldn’t want this?!

Dyson Tower Fan – For those of us who don’t want to feel like we need another shower just after getting dressed. #TheStruggleIsReal

Flip Fold T-shirt folder – I fold a lot of the Misters undershirts/t-shirts and would LOVE this.  Plus, your closet or dresser will look so organized.

Cheat Sheet Baking Apron – I’ve had to Google this info with sticky hands so many times.  Now it’s right there on my lap!

Philips Air Fryer – Good ol’ southern fried food at 75% less fat?  Yes, please.

KitchenAid Electric Kettle – Coffee or Tea drinkers want cute stuff sitting on their stove too.

Silpat Non-stick baking sheets – Easy to clean and microwavable. For those who want to be like Martha S. but hate to clean up.

I didn’t add in the mushy gushy ideas like the personalized photo album or calendar of the grandkids or the Alaska cruise, kinda thought those were a given.  😉  Hope your shopping has been made a little easier and if you need another person on your list… you can add me!  🙂

    Well, I just LOVE your lists. So practicable. I did ask for a nail gun last Christmas but it was deemed to risky for me to use. lol I’m definitely keeping this list and passing it on. Thanks!

      LOL – I get it. I think every time I’ve wanted to use it, the hubby stands over me with a watchful eye. Glad you loved the list! Hope you get something you REALLY want this year. 😉

    I’m getting close to 50 and you’re right about being hard to buy for. People ask what I want and I go blank…lol. I love the cheat sheet apron though and I have Silpat baking sheets that I love. I think the phone sanitizer is great gift idea too.

      I do the same thing. Anytime someone asks it’s usually followed by a shoulder shrug. Not this year – I want it all! Yes, you can call me Veruca Salt. 😉
