Turning 50 is a huge milestone – but what birthday gift do you give to the birthday girl? Some people buy novelty gifts, but what happens to those novelty gifts? Normally they are either re-gifted or worse, put into the back of a cupboard for the next decade. How about joining together with other friends and getting a present that has the WOW factor?
We have created this great list of 50th birthday gift ideas so that nobody buys a mediocre present, but instead, all work together, using our Group Together Collection tool, and get that WOW present for the lucky lady!
I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t like to have a holiday! A ‘WOW’ present would be a pre-paid holiday for the birthday girl. If you are not sure where she would like to go, you can always buy a voucher from a travel agency.
Does the birthday girl like jewellery? There are so many options for jewellery, such as showcase jewellery or personalised jewellery. Much will depend on the particular taste of the birthday girl, but here are some options:
RedBalloon is a website that has some really amazing experiences that can be selected by the birthday girl. For example, the birthday girl can choose:
How many times do women get a chance to just hang out and relax? This is the ideal opportunity to spend the weekend together in celebration of the 50th birthday. It is quite easy, here are the tips:
What woman would not want a day spa gift voucher? The 50th birthday gift is a big one, so that may just be a whole day at the day spa!
If you are not sure what type of treatment or when a treatment would be be best, just pitch in for a gift voucher to a day spa. We have previously had a very relaxing time at endota spa ~ and they have over 100 day spas in convenient locations throughout Australia.
As you know, 50 is the new 20! It may be time for her to get those dancing shoes on and spin around the dance floor. It is also a great way to make new friends and keep fit. Check what classes take her fancy – from martial arts, yoga, meditation, then get a term pass for her to use.
Has your friend mentioned any singers they love? Maybe she mentioned a theatre performance coming to town? Getting VIP tickets to the theatre, music concert or festival is a great gift idea as the memories will last a lifetime.
Does your friend have a coffee machine? If not, and she does drink coffee, maybe it is time she is gifted a coffee machine! There are many different types on the market – depending on her skill level will depend on the type of coffee machine to buy:
Making a personalised photo book will take time and effort from those close to the birthday girl, but it will definitely be worth it. You can invite a group of people to edit the photo book online – they can add in descriptions, photos, any any special thoughts they have.
Most women cannot justify spending money on a designer handbag, but when they turn 50, why not spoil her? There are quite a few high-end brands to choose from, including Armani Exchange, Saint Laurent,
Marc Jacobs, and Dylan Kain. There is a huge range of designer labels in one shop at The Iconic.
However, handbags are usually really personal accessories, and unless you can sneakily know what the birthday girl would love to have … if money was no option … you may want to get a gift card to purchase the designer bag!
But whatever you are thinking, getting a group gift is so much greater than individual presents that most likely will end up in the back of a cupboard somewhere! Treat the birthday girl to a WOW present!! And, it is so easy to do! Simply start your GroupTogether Collection Here!!
