Five Christmas Gifts For Menopausal Women
Need ideas of what to get for Christmas gifts (or any other holiday) for a menopausal woman? Well, I’ve got ya covered – this is spoken from a menopausal woman.
I’m sure John was walking into the house on pins and needles the day he came in with a cooling mattress pad for me. After all, he froze at night while I suffered hot flashes and night sweats. And, here he was mentioning the elephant in the room – my hot flashes and night sweats.
He needn’t have worried; I was thrilled to get this very thoughtful present and your wife, girlfriend, or mother will love one of these magical cooling mattress pads or any other the other Christmas gifts I’ve chosen below.
Without further ado, here’s my top five Christmas gifts for the menopausal woman. Let’s get shopping!
Note: These Christmas gifts for menopausal women are in no particular order but they are great gifts for any woman going through the change (and, what a huge change it is – just ask my waist!).
1. Desk Fans Keep A Cool Breeze On Us ‘Hotties’
A small, portable desk fan not only works on a desk, but it’s also a great investment for a bedside table. I take my little desk fan along everywhere and especially when I travel.
Desk fans can be USB powered, meaning they have to plug into a computer port or they can be plugged into the wall. I’ll show you both types.

These need to be powered by a computer or any other device with a USB port.

2. Cooling Mattress Pads Help With Night Sweats and/or Hot Flashes
The very best gift John gave me when I started into menopause was a hot flash mattress pad. I love it so much that I bought one for the guest room to huge reviews from our visitors.
These mattress pads give me a comfortable, cool sleep. I won’t say they stopped my night sweats but my new mattress pad sure did reduce both the severity and the frequency. I wake up cool and comfortable (most mornings – I still do have bad nights so even the best cooling mattress pad can’t work miracles….).

3. Cooling, Wicking Sleepwear Is A Welcomed Christmas Gift
Hot flashes and night sweats can go into overdrive late at night. Waking up in a soaking bed (without that cooling mattress pad!) and soaked pajamas is just no fun. Taking a shower at 2 am is also no fun.
These wicking pajamas and nightgowns work by absorbing sweat and wicking it away from the body. Your hot lady will sleep cool and comfortable all night through.
