Gifts for Women Turning 50

Updated on December 1, 2014

50th Birthday Gifts for Women

Here you'll find some 50th birthday gift ideas for women. You don't have to spend a lot of money to give her a special 50th birthday gift. You can get her jewelry, personalized gifts, books, gag gifts, movies, and more. Hopefully you'll get some ideas here to find the perfect fiftieth birthday present for her.

But you're the one who knows what she likes, so you might be able to think of a more personal gift to get her about one of her hobbies or interests, but of course that kind of gift goes good with a gift like the ones you'll find on this page since you only hit the big 5-0 once!

The Juicy Tomatoes Guide to Ripe Living after 50

What in the world is a juicy tomato? Well, it's a term for some women who are "full, ripe, luscious, still on the vine, and past the half-century mark" according to the introduction of this book.

The book also mentions that 50 is the new 30. It seems to celebrate being 50 and over rather than have it be the end of all your fun.

Women turning 50 will probably find some inspiration from this book, and perhaps a feeling that after turning 50, your best years are yet to come!


50 Years Old Shirt

Wouldn't the 50th birthday girl look great in a 50th Birthday Tee Shirt that says 50 years old? If pink isn't her thing, you can choose another color. I personally like pink but have a relative who doesn't like the color and so we only get her pink if it is a joke.

I am always thinking about photo ops but if you could get her to wear this shirt to the party it would be fun to take pictures of her wearing it. Or at least have her put it on for a little bit at the party for photos.

Warning: When I am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple
Warning: When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

My Grandma loved this poem and she wore lots of purple. Of course, it was her favorite color. And it's my favorite color too so I will follow in her footsteps and continue to wear purple as I get older.

Of course, it isn't just about wearing purple, and it makes being old sound like fun.


A Non-Physical Gift

Gifts where you do something instead of get something might make you happier if you have fond memories of the event. Also it reduces clutter since someone who is 50 years old has probably amassed a lot of stuff already!

Instead or getting her a physical gift, you could give her the gift of a trip to the spa or tickets to a play. That's what comes to mind to me since I would like to do those things myself, but you can probably think of something she'd like to do as maybe she likes watching opera, or she could be into football games, etc.

The Golden Girls on DVD - Get her something to watch!

The Golden Girls: Season 1
The Golden Girls: Season 1

The Golden Girls is the obvious TV show about mature ladies and it would be a humorous gift to get for a woman turning 50.

I watch reruns of this show all the time and it is just as funny now as when it was first airing on TV. I like all the characters, but especially Rose (played by Betty White), who is always telling stories of St. Olaf and Sophia, Dorothy's mom who has some of the funniest lines.

This is season 1 here but they also have other seasons you could buy on DVD. Probably season 1 is enough as a gift so they can watch the beginning episodes of the show and they can buy more seasons if they want to continue watching it in order.

Senility Prayer Bookmark

Senility Prayer Beaded Bookmark
Senility Prayer Beaded Bookmark

If you get the 50th birthday girl a book, this would be a great bookmark to go with it because it has the humorous senility prayer.

Maybe some women might not appreciate being associated with senility but it's funny for the right women!

There's also other gifts regarding the senility prayer but I thought this bookmark looks cute.

The birthday girl may like a 50th birthday wine glass which makes a great keepsake from her 50th birthday and they're cute!

She could get a lot of use out of a wine glass beyond her 50th birthday as well.

If you're planning the party, instead of wrapping this as a gift, you could give it to the birthday person to drink out of at their birthday party!

      I love to get people books, no matter what age they are. Most of my friends are avid readers! One of my good friends is turning 50 in a few weeks, and I just bought her the book "Reel Life" by Jackie Townsend ( I think she's going to love it.
