We asked women in our community what they’d like as a gift. Here’s what they told us. We’ve added a few of our gift ideas too! And of course our editor Rachel’s new book, Magnificent Midlife: Transform Your Middle Years, Menopause and Beyond is the perfect gift idea for women over 40!
In this life-changing book, Rachel unpicks the accepted status quo and negative stereotypes associated with women’s midlife and aging. She offers us a radical research-based rebranding of midlife and menopause, highlighting the possibilities inherent in this transformational time in a woman’s life.
