To be totally honest, the picks I’ve chosen for this gift guide are things I’d love to buy myself! But on the whole, I do find it difficult to buy for the older woman and it can be hard to put myself in their shoes and think about it.
Simply because I feel most woman that age have a lot of things and gifts are less important rather than spending time with loved ones at Christmas.
No matter how old we are, as a woman we enjoy the same things, but some things are more tailored to suit an audience better than others.
This powder and lipstick is perfect for the glamourous older lady who loves the timeless Joan Collins look. You cannot go wrong with a classic red lip and its guaranteed to never go out of fashion. I also think a red lipstick goes well on any woman! I’m going to be wearing my trusted red lippie till I’m 90! But you can get this in 8 different shades of lip colours so again suitable for all woman if the classic red lip is not your thing. The packaging is beautiful too and gives a true glam luxury feel with an added mirror. Perfect to put in your handbag and go!
