80th Birthday FAQs
What is an 80th Birthday Called?
A woman who is celebrating her 80th birthday is referred to as an “octogenarian,” which uses the Latin root “octo” to reflect her 8th decade of life. She is considered an octogenarian from the age of 80 – 89, so there is plenty of time to keep honoring her long life with the coolest celebrations you can think of.
What is the Traditional Gift for an 80th Birthday?
Turning 80 is a special achievement for a woman, but unlike anniversaries, there is no perfect gift to give her on her 80th birthday. Each woman’s needs vary, but you can think about gifts that will keep her body and health going strong, like heating pads, body massagers, and spa gift baskets. Also, anything that she can use around the house, such as an LED reading light or kitchen accessories, will find appreciation. Personalized gifts will always hit the mark and it’s a good idea to think outside of the box…she may just want the latest easy-to-use streaming device!
What is the Flower for an 80th Birthday?
