At 60 years old, women’s lives are often changing. Retirement, career change, becoming a grandmother—sometimes all three at once. Oftentimes, this means more time to herself, as the children are grown and she may no longer be working, or working less. This freedom can be overwhelming, but can also lead to new discoveries and new beginnings. Here at Cratejoy, we curate gifts for 60-year-old women that will inspire them to reach new heights every single day.
Jacky O'Shaughnessy—who was recruited as a model for the first time at 60 years old—told Women’s Fitness that her age was just a number, and didn’t have to be limiting in any way. “Every age has its advantages and its challenges,” she said. “Accept where you are now. Not tomorrow, or 10 pounds from now, or once you've done this or that. Now. Love yourself. It's the springboard to everything else." To celebrate this kind of era of acceptance and exploration, we’ve compiled a list of subscription boxes to encourage daily delights and charting new horizons.
Not only are they convenient care packages that arrive safely at the front door, but they also bring high-quality goodies, helping her to do everything from cultivating new hobbies to enjoying an at-home staycation. No matter where you’re at in your journey, these golden years can still be sparkly, filled with fun and serenity, sipping delicious tea, exploring tasty treats, and showing them that they're loved.
