TZR: This Unexpected Gift

Of everyone on your list this year, finding the perfect gift for a self-sufficient woman over 50 has a way of stumping the average shopper. By this age, if there's something she wants, she's likely going to go ahead and get it herself (meaning, she's not waiting for a special occasion to roll around to ask someone for it). Therefore, the perfect holiday gifts for women over 50 are those that add color and variety to their day — whether a pair of playfully-embroidered smoking slippers or an unexpected parlor game.
