  1. Subscription boxes. If your birthday girl is a foodie, cocktail connoisseur, or makeup maven, a gift of the month club might be the perfect gift for her! There are a wide range of different options, and they’re super easily customizable. Some of the most popular ideas include cocktail-a-month, book-of-the-month, beauty subscription boxes, and more!
  2. Spa day. If your birthday girl loves to be pampered, gift her a few different spa treatments so that she can spend her special day being spoiled with a massage, facial, and manicure and pedicure!
  3. Candles. If your birthday girl has a signature scent or loves the smell of flowers or spices, gifting a beautiful candle or set of candles is a wonderful way to show her how much you appreciate her! She’ll love how good her house smells!
  4. Stationary set. If your birthday girl loves the idea of a handwritten card, and is still a stickler for thank you notes, then a pretty stationary set would be a beautiful gift idea for her! Stationary sets vary in both price and the types of stationary included, so you’re sure to find the perfect option!
  5. 50th birthday sash. If your birthday girl is ready to embrace her fabulous new age and wants to have a big party to celebrate with all of her friends and family, a birthday sash is the perfect gift! She’ll love being the center of attention with her glitzy accessory!
