To the gentlemen in the audience:
OK, a bit of warning here, fellas – you’re treading on rocky ground when thinking about selecting gifts for someone who is menopausal. Your gift, given in good nature, may not seem like much of ‘gift’ to someone teetering on the edge of insanity periodically. And, if she’s in that edge-of-insanity moment when she opens your gift? Uh oh.
You might make sure there are some early morning mimosas (preferably in bed) before giving a gift to a menopausal woman.
By even coming to this site, you’re acknowledging that the woman in your life is going through a change – a massive, ugly, very hot change (we’re not talking ‘hot’ as in don’t-I-look-hot (?), but, rather in the I’m-burning-up-from-the-inside-out type of ‘hot’). I know of what I type – I’m that woman who is on fire and not in a good way.
That’s why I’m allowed to write about gifts for menopause.
Anyway, there are some fun items on this site, like the Hot Girls Pearls that would make excellent, thoughtful gifts – hey, they’re pretty to wear.
Without further ado, I give you Hot Flash Mattress Pads Gifts for the Hot Mama.
Bedroom Gifts For Those In Menopause
This site was pretty much born because of one item – it was the first item I bought to combat night sweats and, wow (!) does it work. If you’re looking for just ONE thing on this page that you should get your hot mama, check out my article My favorite cooling mattress pad – The extra plush bamboo fitted mattress topper.
And, here’s some more choices for thoughtful gifts for her.
Gifts For the Menopausal Woman That Probably Won’t Get You Slapped
The below gifts are sort of sweet in nature. Wrap them up in the brightest Christmas wrapping paper and hope for the best:
Moisture Wicking Clothing
One way your menopausal woman needs to stay cool is by wearing moisture wicking clothing. It may sound like a gimmick but, trust me here, it ain’t.
Moisture wicking clothing doesn’t stop hot flashes, it just keeps one more comfortable when faced with an inferno. As sweat pours from the skin, it is picked up by the clothing and ‘wicked’ to another slim layer of fabric away from the skin.
Some Extra Stuff Menopausal Woman May (or may not….) Appreciate
OK, spoiler alert, gentlemen. Woman get chin hairs. There. I said it. I let the proverbial cat (the one growing on my chin) out of the bag.
And, since we get such things as chin hairs, we need really really good magnifying makeup mirrors and a great pair of tweezers. These might not be the sweetest Christmas gifts of all time, but you could consider them altruistic as I’m pretty sure you don’t want to see your lady with a hairy chinny-chin-chin:
