[VIDEO] Thoughtful Perimenopause & Menopause Gift Ideas

As a woman who navigated her first summer of perimenopause (and with menopause on the horizon), I’m featuring some gift ideas that would be helpful to women experiencing similar symptoms. In case you missed it, here’s “My Honest, Funny Look at Perimenopause.”

As a gift-giver, you should NOT get these gifts for someone you know casually and ASSUME she’s in this phase of life. The gift receiver needs to be a close friend or family member who’s been open with you about her symptoms.

These thoughtful gift ideas for women in menopause or perimenopause are designed to alleviate common symptoms including:

  • Hot flashes
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Drink skin and lips

Skin Nation Scrubalicious Exfoliator and Firming Cream

All over dryness is a problem once your hormone levels change. Exfoliator and firming cream combined can tackle those issues.

“Regular exfoliating opens the way for your beauty products to penetrate better into the skin, thus makes them more effective! The build-up of dead skin cells can result in excess oil and clogged pores leading to blemishes and acne and can leave skin rough and dry. Glycolic Acid gently dissolves dead skin cells and debris from pores and stimulates the skin’s natural renewal process. While Jojoba beads polish to return the skin to its youthful glow!”

“This cream is specially formulated to help firm, tighten & tone crepey, dry and aging skin.”

The Skin Nation line is made in the USA and comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

  2. I’m going to share the pillowcase idea with my mom and sister. My sister is early in the journey and my mom is well into the journey. I hear the night sweats are brutal so if this gives them some relief, that’s always a good thing! I may even purchase the pillowcase for myself, I hate when my pillow gets warm LOL!
