Menopause can typically occur in a woman anytime between ages 40 and 59. According to Epigee, approximately 85 per cent of women going through menopause experience hot flushes. A woman celebrating her 50th birthday may be experiencing menopause, and therefore may be having hot flushes. A thoughtful gift to help the recipient cope with hot flushes may be appropriate. In certain situations, a gag gift can provide a humorous moment.


A small, portable fan is an excellent gift for a woman experiencing hot flushes. Personal fans come in many convenient sizes. A woman can place a larger fan at her work desk or in an area she frequents. Small, handheld fans are easy to conceal in a purse, and provide a cooling breeze in a pinch.

Wicking Pajamas

A practical gift for a woman with hot flushes is clothing that repels sweat. Women going through menopause often experience hot flushes at night. Wicking fabrics help "wick" away sweat, which ultimately helps keep the wearer dry and cool. Various companies sell pyjamas made of wicking fabrics.

Novelty Gifts

If the gift recipient appreciates jokes, a novelty gift remarking on the recipient's age and menopausal symptoms can be just the ticket. Speciality gift shops and online shops often have several options along these lines. These gifts often feature cartoons about ageing, with some having specific references to menopause and hot flushes. While a novelty or gag gift may not specifically help ease the symptoms of menopause, it can provide humorous relief for the gift recipient.
