1. A Custom Family Print
I think this is one of my favorite gifts for any mom or grandma. It’s a custom animal print by PawprintIllustration on Etsy that you can personalize for your family. This one here is with a bunch of bunnies and perfect for a big family with lots of kids. However, the Etsy shop also has a bunch of other animal prints perfect for each family. So, you can go with this one here or one of the great other alternatives out there as adorable thoughtful gifts for a woman aged 60.
2. A Garden Tool Set
Does she love gardening? Or has she never tried but always wanted to plant a vegetable patch? Then getting her this set of basic garden tools and a matching bag is a great idea. It comes with all the essentials and the bag makes it easy to carry all your stuff with you from flower bed to flower pot. Just make sure she has a garden (that isn’t yours) that she can use it in. Don’t give this if she doesn’t like gardening, then it’s a big no-no.
3. A Soft Cashmere Scarf
Any scarf would be a great Christmas gift idea for a 60-year-old woman. However, a cashmere one is especially luxurious if you have the budget. It’s not a ‘wow’ gift for everyone around, but the giftee will definitely appreciate it. Cashmere makes quite the difference in softness while also providing the warmth of wool. So, if you don’t know what to get, but it gets cold where she lives, then a simple scarf can be a really easy and sure-fire option.
4. A Fitbit Activity Tracker
By now, most people know what a Fitbit is and what’s it for. It’s basically a watch that also keeps track of your daily activity and this one even looks less clunky than some of the other options out there. I think this can be a great gift. However, be careful who you’re giving it to. If she is sensitive about her weight, then this is probably not a great idea to give without testing the waters first. In other words, make sure she won’t be insulted by getting this as a present.
5. A Briogeo Hair Mask
I think most women would love to get a nice hair mask. A woman of 60 years old will especially like it, as she’ll actually have the time to use it (unlike me who just keeps forgetting). A hair mask is great for anyone who has grey or dyed hair as it can use some good moisturizing from time to time, and that’s what this mask is for. It is on the pricier side, but it’s worth it if you have the budget. Otherwise, some of the alternatives on this list are also great gift ideas.
6. Scented Candles – gifts for women turning 60
It can be as simple as this. A nice set of scented candles with a bunch of different scents is one of those things you can’t really go wrong with. You can find them in your local stores or online where you will find a bunch of different options and designs. This set here is a great example of that as it comes in pretty tins and with a lot of different scents. Just make sure not to pay too much for candles like this, except if you’re getting it from a small business where they made from scratch.
7. A Custom Picture Keychain
If you want to get her something small and meaningful, then a keychain like this one by CatalinaArtStudio on Etsy is a great option. You can pick whatever picture you have, choose the metal color and even get it engraved. It’s a simple way to give something thoughtful and she’ll surely use it. This is just one of the many designs you can find on Etsy, so if this one isn’t your style, you’re sure to find something else. Either way, keychains like this are great gifts for 60-year-old women.
8. A Coffee and Chocolate Tasting Box
This is probably one of the best pairings in the world, right? I mean who doesn’t like a good cup of coffee with some chocolate on the side. This box comes with four different coffees to try and matching chocolates that pair well with the coffee. It’s a simple idea, but a great one nonetheless. You can pick between ground or whole bean and if she doesn’t like chocolate, there’s also a version with just coffee. So, take a look to see if you like this idea as much as I do.
9. A Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader
If she’s turning sixty this year, then you probably know by now whether she like reading books or not. And if she does, then maybe she doesn’t have an e-reader yet. Having an e-reader is great to take with you on trips or in the car, as you won’t be lugging books around and you won’t need any additional light to read. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to replace your books, it can just be a great complimentary device to make reading even easier.
10. A Handy Bath Tray
What’s more relaxing than a nice soak in the bathtub? Well, maybe a bath with a tray to keep all your stuff on. From a wine glass to your phone, it’s a lot easier to relax with your favorite things within arms reach. This bath tray has lots of different slots and spaces to put your stuff in and even a stand to hold a book or tablet. It comes in a couple of different colors, so try to go with something that will fit in with the style of her bathroom to play it safe. I would, personally, stay away from the bright red one.

11. Comfy Slippers – gift ideas for 60-year-old women
Who doesn’t like a good pair of comfortable slippers during the winter months? And that’s exactly the reason why these are on this gift guide for a 60-year-old woman. These ones here come in a couple of different colors and are a great neutral choice. Though if you know what kind of slippers she likes best, then maybe try finding a pair like that. You can go with something really fluffy, or something with proper arch support. Either way, have a look around at all the options.
12. Double-Walled Coffee Glasses
This gift idea is great for anyone who likes a good espresso, cappuccino, or latte macchiato. It’s a set of three pairs of double-walled coffee glasses that will look great in any kitchen and will keep your drink hot for longer without the outside being scalding hot. This is just one of the many fun coffee or espresso sets you can find. You can even get some custom-made options with their name or something a bit more colorful. As long as she drinks coffee, you can’t go wrong with this idea and it’ll be a great gift for a 60-year-old woman.
13. You’re Only Old Once!
Now, this present is more for the woman who doesn’t mind turning 60 this year and is aging with pleasure. It’s a fun book by Dr. Suess all about growing old and making the most of it. It’s a fun smaller gift that is also great to add to a gift basket or as part of a set. You could even pair it with a bunch of other Dr. Suess or children’s books if she’s a grandma that loves reading to her grandkids. So, if you’re looking for something fun and touching, this is a great inspiration item.
14. A Bath & Body Set
If you really don’t know what to get a 60-year-old lady, then you can always play it safe with a set like this. A nice bath and body set is a great neutral option that you can’t really go wrong with. This one here is a good affordable and neutral option. Though, if you have the budget, you can also go for something a bit bigger. I think the essentials are a nice hand cream and some bath salts or bath bubbles. Those are the two items that can’t be lacking from a good bath set.
15. An Instant Photo Printer
Nowadays we take all our photos on our phone, which is really handy and easy to have with you for the most candid moments. However, if you’re like me, you never get any of your pictures printed, because you never get around to sorting that out. With this little printer, it becomes a lot easier. It’s not the perfect printer, but a great present for a 60-year-old woman who wants to have more pictures on the wall without having to go out to get them printed each time.
16. A Paint By Numbers Painting
You probably didn’t know these existed, but they’re a great activity for adults. The ones by MyPaintByNumbers on Etsy, like the one you see here, are my personal favorites as they offer a bunch of famous art as projects to paint yourself. You can find something for everyone with this original activity. There are even sellers who offer custom ones based on a picture of a pent or something. So, if you think she would love painting something without having to know how to paint, then this is it.
17. A Cozy Bathrobe: gift for a 60-year-old woman
One of the best Christmas gift ideas for a 60-year-old woman is a nice bathrobe like this one. You can find them in a bunch of different colors and are an easy present that most women will love. Just make sure she doesn’t already own more than one, because then it’ll be a bit redundant. You can go for something warm like this one, or if she doesn’t live somewhere cold, you can also go with a thinner alternative.
18. Belgian Chocolates
Did you know that it’s tradition in Belgium to give someone a bunch of flowers and a box of chocolate whenever you visit them for their birthday or Christmas? And quite frankly, I like that idea a lot. It’s simple and they’re both gifts that they won’t have to keep in their house for years to come if they don’t like it. These Godiva chocolate boxes come in a couple of different sizes and are great to pair with another inexpensive gift to bring it to the next level of luxury. If you have a local chocolatier or something, I suggest going there first, as they will have the best options available.
19. A Temperature Control Smart Mug
Whether she loves coffee or tea, a good mug is one of those gifts for 60-year-old women that you just can’t go wrong with. And this one is even temperature controlled. Now, that’s pretty nifty but it also comes with a pretty steep price tag. So, before you get this mug, make sure it’s in your budget and that she’ll actually use it and understand how to use it. Otherwise, you’re better of getting her a nice monogrammed mug instead.
20. A Nice Carry-On Bag
If she travels a lot, then she can probably use a good carry-on bag like this one. And this one even looks pretty too. It is quite pricey, but that tends to be the case for all good-quality suitcases. You can of course also go for a cheaper alternative, though they tend to be a bit less durable, but perfectly fine if she’s careful with her stuff and doesn’t fly too much. So, take a look around and see which one is perfect for the traveling lady. Suitcases like this are really useful gifts for a 60-year-old woman.
21. A Neck Massager
This gift guide has all sorts of gifts, from cheap to expensive. From unique to a bit safer. And this idea is probably the most comfortable one on here. It’s a heated neck and back massager that you can simply use in any chair you have. It’s great for anyone who can use a good massage but doesn’t necessarily have a husband who will give her one. So, if you want something that’s a gadget she probably wouldn’t get for herself, then something like this is a great idea.
