Gift for lady in her early 60s
158

BringBackThinEyebrows · 04/12/2021 14:18

I'd love some ideas on what to buy for a woman in her early 60s. Budget is £100. She prefers staying in since lockdown rather than events or experiences, so maybe something she can use at home. Some info:

-Already has loads of beauty products and knows exactly what she likes
-Has a dog and loves country walks
-Has a tablet she enjoys using
-Likes stuff in National Trust shops
-Enjoys crafts but has tried to declutter her craft supplies this year
-Enjoys reading fiction (especially crime fiction)
-Likes clothes but doesn't treat herself to new clothes often
-Already has all the kitchen gadgets e.g. velvetiser

Any suggestions welcome Smile Especially if you're a similar age and know what you want.

A silk pillowcase as a beauty aid - space NK do one for around that budget I believe.

Recycled silk-covered notebook (similar to Nat Trust but a smaller business)

Set of letterpress cards

A couple of lovely Christmas decorations chosen to correspond to her interests - I mean the sort of beaded or embroidered, beautiful pieces you can buy individually.

Scarf or shawl or hat. DOn't know what National Trust has but if she likes its stuff she would probably also like something from V and A or Liberty's. £100 a bit light for much in the way of scarves from Liberty but they have some wonderful silk-lined leather touchscreen gloves that would come in under budget.

How about a book subscription? I've used mystery book club before. You get a beautifully packaged new book every month.
