    Birthday Gifts for Women Turning 60

    Turning 60 has never looked so good for women. With healthier lifestyles paying off, women who are turning 60 are likely to be active and interested in pursuing all that life has to offer. Even though this milestone birthday means she is closer to retirement and may be experiencing the joy of being a "grandma," not all 59ers are greeting this big day with a smile on their faces. Remind her of how wonderful and vibrant she is with a terrific birthday gift to celebrate her life thus far.

    60 Favorite Things

    Brighten her day and give her something to do for hours with 60 gifts that represent some of her favourite things. You don't need to break the budget on this gift idea, simply mix some inexpensive items that reflect her personality or lifestyle with a few nicer gifts to help celebrate her big day. Fill a large gift basket with items she enjoys daily, like her favourite lipstick, flavour of gum, hand lotion, cookies (count each cookie separately to get to 60 quicker) and romance novels to make her giggle with enthusiasm and to show how well you really do know her. Include a thoughtful card to express your affection and admiration to the birthday lady.

    Determine what genre of books your birthday celebrant enjoys and supply some reading material to get her through a weekend or vacation. If she loves murder mysteries, perhaps she'd like the Alex Cross series by James Patterson. If she loves romance novels, pick up all the Danielle Steel books you can find. If the voracious reader has visual difficulties, consider getting her an electronic book reader like the Amazon Kindle, which allows readers to increase the font size for more comfortable reading. Electronic readers are also lightweight, which is great for arthritic hands. If your birthday gal is having a hard time with this milestone birthday, consider an inspirational book like, "Sixty Things to Do When You Turn Sixty" by Various Authors or "Suddenly Sixty And Other Shocks Of Later Life" by Judith Viorst and Laurie Rosewald.

    For the couch potato-birthday girl, consider a gift basket filled with "older women"-themed movies. Titles like "Prime," "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" and "The Graduate" are some interesting choices to consider. For the mystery lover, perhaps a collection of Agatha Christie movies would have her happily munching popcorn for hours. You can purchase titles like "And Then There Were None" and "Love from a Stranger" or get a box set of Agatha Christie's "Miss Marple" movies. Whatever movies you choose, be sure to include some popcorn and traditional movie candies.

    Adventure and Activities

    Many 60-year-old women are very active and adventurous. If this describes your birthday gal, a more exciting gift that can stimulate new interests may be in order. Provide some gift tokens and a parachute so your birthday celebrant can finally jump out of a plane. You could also consider a simple gym membership and some yoga classes to help her meet her goals to stay limber and active. Consider your friend's health, vitality and interests then look for some adventures or classes that will delight her on this milestone day.
