It’s always a breeze to shop for a gift when you’re similar to the recipient in question. If you’re around the same age, chances are strong that you have parallel hobbies or interests. Of course, it’s also slightly easier to shop for someone who’s younger than you — you’ve been that age before, after all. That said, the hardest type of person to shop for may be anyone who’s older than you. And from our experience, the older your giftee is, the more difficult it becomes to impress them! Various studies have demonstrated that older women spend more than their younger counterparts, which likely means they’re already purchasing what they want — so you’ll need to get creative!

Perhaps your mother’s birthday is coming up or you want to bring your beloved grandma something special just because — or perhaps it’s time to start thinking about holiday shopping. Whatever your situation, we came up with a slew of different gift ideas that older women will not only love — but also get a ton of use from. We selected these items because they all either solve some sort of problem, like foot pain or stress relief, or they can enhance one’s life for specific reasons. These are general criteria, but you’ll get a sense of what makes each of these gifts absolutely ideal by checking out our roundup below.
