Women in their 60s may have all the personal care gadgets they want. But others may not realize there are gadgets that can make their lives easier when dealing with the stress of keeping busy with work, grandchildren or other activities, not to mention the new aches and pains maturity brings. Massage, kitchen gadgets, and health and personal care items can make her feel better and make great gifts for Christmas or Hanukkah, Mother's Day, birthdays and other holidays. Some of the following are luxury gifts; others are cheap but well-made items that can enhance the quality of a woman's life.
Kitchen Gadget Gift Idea: Electric Knife Sharpener
Presto Pro EverSharp Electric Knife Sharpener makes a fantastic gift for her - it's a quality sharpener at an inexpensive price and does the job very well, judging by over 200 5-star reviews.
Another knife sharpener that's slightly more pricey, but still mid-range in price, has reviewers raving: the Chef's Choice 320 Diamond Hone Knife Sharpener. If she's been using a whetstone to sharpen her kitchen knives, this gadget will make her life so much easier!
Ergonomic Neck Support Gift
The Brookstone Real-Ease Neck Support is a lightweight, portable, orthopedic support for the neck. A woman can use it 10 to 15 minutes daily. This is a wonderful gift that can help take some of the tension from her tight shoulders.
Personal Care Gadget Gift for Ladies - Percussion Massager
Another great tension-buster is a percussion massager. The best handheld massager will have an angled head option so she can reach her back and shoulders. A good percussion massage tool for an older woman is the Thumper Sport Percussive Massager. Thumper, which produces equipment professional therapists use and recommend, is a highly respected brand in personal massage equipment.
For the ultimate in luxury, get her the well-designed, quality-built Thumper Mini Pro 2 Massager, a therapeutic tool that not only helps with hard-to-reach places, but also has very little kickback in the handle - which a woman in her sixties will appreciate, and which is the biggest problem with the lesser quality percussion massagers.
Affordable Comfort Gift for a Woman in Her 60s: Manual Foot and Body Massager
For a cheap yet fantastic gift for the woman in her sixties who complains of aching feet, the deceptively simple Happy Company Foot and Body Roller With Massaging Fingers is just the thing. The "fingers" are rubber nodules that provide enough firmness to rejuvenate sore and tight muscles. Some older women get plantar fasciitis, which causes heel pain in the foot, and reviewers with plantar fasciitis at Amazon.com are convinced it helps them a lot.
The Perfect Practical and Functional Gift for Her - Heart Rate Monitor Watch
Sportline Anadigit Heart Rate Monitor Watch, a sleekly designed stainless steel watch with an LED display designed to be used not just in excercise, but at rest, too.
Woman's Electric Shaver
A good husband-to-wife or girl-to-girl gift is the Panasonic Close Curves Wet/Dry Ladies' Shaver. This electric razor for women has stainless steel hypallergenic blades and an ergonomic pivoting head.
If All Else Fails: The Best Spa Gift Basket for Birthday, Mother's Day or Christmas
For a choosey lady who's truly got everything, there's no going wrong with the honey-scented Essence of Luxury Spa Gift Basket. She'll feel so pampered! Besides mouth-watering caramels and cafe latte, the basket includes an aromatherapy candle, scrubbers and all the things she needs to feel as though she's been to a spa - bath salts, lotions, gel, soap, spa towel, and rich fragrant potpourri.
