Pedometers, gift certificates for running shoes, cardigan sweaters, and various skincare products make good gift choices for women over age 50, according to the Huffington Post. Alternatively, unique kitchen items can be a good gift choice.
If the woman is a dog or cat lover, consider pet-themed gifts, or even gifts for the woman's pet. For fitness fanatics, consider a colorful yoga mat or food journal.
Custom jewelry, fragrances, bubble bath, and nail polish and eye shadow sets also make excellent gifts for older women. Books, stationery notebooks, pens, and decorative notecards are universally useful and can often be customized for a unique touch.
