Turning 50 is a big deal and should be celebrated as such. But, when a women turns the big f5-0, this birthday may also be accompanied by not-so-great feelings of getting older. Rather than harp on her age with gag gifts she may not appreciate, help her celebrate her birthday with a gift she'll cherish for years to come. Think a little outside the box of tradional birthday cakes and balloons and try to give her something that she'll find entertaining.

Gift of Self Discovery

Consider giving the birthday girl a gift that will enable her to try something that she's always wanted to--no matter how wacky or wild it seems. According to, this can be a great time for self discovery, and gifts that help her with that will be much appreciated. For example, if she's always talked about wanting to go skydiving, give her a gift certificate to a simulated skydiving centre in your area, or for an actual skydiving experience, or if she has always wanted to go horseback riding, give her a gift certificate that gives her the opportunity to go horseback riding with a friend for free. If she loves watching "Dancing with the Stars" or just loves to dance, give her a gift certificate that she can cash in for free ballroom dance lessons.


Give her the gift of travel on her big day. Depending on your budget, either give her travel vouchers that help her with vacation expenses, or if she is your significant other or a family member, try to pool together money to send her and a friend away on a fabulous vacation. If you choose to do the latter, try to pick a fun, tropical destination like Jamaica or the Bahamas. That way, she'll have the choice to kick back and relax, engage in a variety of water activities, or dance the night away at a low-key club if she wants to.

Gifts for Entertaining

Help her get the party started--give her a gift that enables her to boost the entertainment factor when she has guests over. For example, give her a margarita maker and a set of vividly decorated margarita glasses. If she has an iPod, pick up a pair of iPod speakers so she can set up a party music mix when she's entertaining guests. If the birthday girl enjoys wine, consider getting her a bottle of her favourite wine and a nice set of large wine glasses. You can also take this gift up a notch by giving her a wine gadget like an automated wine corking device or digital wine chiller as well.
