5 Pack of Potted Succulent Plants
Plants are great because they bring a ton of life to any space. Their green colors brighten up rooms and make people happy. However, they can be quite difficult to take care of. And, sometimes, 20 year old women want plants but they just don’t have the time or organizational skills (yet) to care for them.
Succulents are a great solution to this problem. They brighten up spaces just like other plants, but these guys are super easy to take care of. Plus, their small size is really cute and allows them to be placed just about anywhere. This 5 pack of succulent plantsis nice because they already come potted in soil. They can be left in those pots or easily transferred to a decorative pot of her choice. Either way, a 20 year old will love the life and joy that these succulents add to her space.

It’s hard to stay on top of fashion trends, and that’s something that we totally understand. But, we make sure to stay on top of them so you don’t have to. That being said, this V-neck button down sweater is a great, fashionable gift for a 20 year old woman.
It’s got a fun youthful style that isn’t too serious (but also not too childish) and comes in three basic colors to choose from. This sweater will definitely become a staple wardrobe item for fall, winter, spring, and maybe even summer.

Going green and being environmentally aware are two big topics in today’s society. It’s an even a bigger topic among today’s younger generation.

Either way, these reusable mesh produce bags will definitely come in handy and help to keep her carbon footprint low.
Mesh produce bags work to replace the plastic, waste creating, produce bags we generally use in the supermarket. These mesh bags are zero waste, come in several different sizes, and are BPA-free so you know they’re safe for storing all her fresh produce.
Anker PowerCore Portable Charger
Today’s smart phones are made to withstand the constant use that they see throughout the day. Even so, today’s young adults are on their phones a lot because they can be used to do almost everything. That means that some days the battery won’t make it to the end of the day without dying. That’s where a portable charger can come in handy.
The Anker PowerCore Portable Charger is awesome because of it’s small size and charging capabilities. It holds up from 2 to 3.5 entire smart phone charges. It can be used to charge other items too, as long as you have the corresponding USB to charging port cable. We also like the PowerCore charge because it comes in different colors, perfect for personalizing for a 20 year old.
Essentail oils can do wonders for your state of mind or body. Plus, they smell amazing. This diffuser and essential oils set is the perfect bundle to get a 20 year old girl started with aromatherapy. The wooden design is cozy and matches almost any decoration. It also includes 14 ambient light settings and a timer.
This set comes with 6 different high-quality essential oils, each providing different benefits. She’ll be able to diffuse lavender, orange, rosemary, and more with this set from Yikubee.

There is nothing better than cozying up into your own personal cocoon on a cold day. A blanket scarf is the best way to do just that. They are big pieces of warm fabric that can be styled differently to make a cute scarf. They can also be unfolded to be used as a blanket.
We like this plaid blanket scarf for it’s cute pattern and cashmere feel. It comes in different colors and is super soft. Any 20 year old girl will love adding this cute functional accessory to her cold weather wardrobe.
Gaiam Essentials Premium Yoga Mat with Carrier Sling
Yoga is so good for the body and mind. Maybe you’re buying a gift for a 20 year old girl who really likes yoga or wants to try it. If so, the chances are that her yoga mat (if she has one) isn’t top quality. This Gaiam Essentials premium yoga mat might be the perfect gift for her. It’s durable, lightweight, and non-toxic. Most importantly, it has an anti-slip coating, so she won’t be sliding around on her map while she’s trying to do her warrior poses.

At 20 years old, a young woman is most likely starting to cook for herself for the first time ever. This can be hard, especially if she’s got a busy schedule. To keep her from eating unhealthy, fast and prepackaged foods, think about getting her this Instant Pot Duo Plus Mini 9-in-1 electric cooker. It will help her to make all the dishes she’s dreamed of without any of the errors.
This baby can slow cook, cook rice, steam, saute, make yogurt, warm, and even more. It comes with 13 different smart programs for making all different types of food, like chili, soup, and even eggs.

This is the year of the BlueTooth headphone revolution. And that revolution is being spearheaded by the Apple AirPods. Their undeniable quality and sleek style prove the reign that Apple has had over the electronic world in America throughout the past few years.
The AirPods are awesome because they come with a portable charging case that allows for up to 24 hours of listening time. They also have a built-in microphone that provides crystal clear audio for voice calls and other recordings. This particular model features wired charging, but there is a wireless charging model, too.
Any 20 year old girl would love to receive these as a present. The link we’ve provided also comes with Apple Care+, which provides an extra two years of coverage for any accidental damage.
Leather Watch from Fossil
A watch is an unequivocally “adult” sort of accessory. So, why not welcome your 20 year old woman to the age of adulthood with a fancy new wrist watch? Fossil makes really beautiful, elegant watches for both women and men. We like this leather dress watch that they make because of it’s simple, beautiful style.
The thin leather band won’t be overly bulky on small wrists and the face of the watch is simplistic and easy to read. Plus, it comes in several different colors to choose from. Any 20 year old girl will feel super mature and professional wearing this watch around.
Columbia Newton Ridge Plus Women’s Hiking Boot
In an age of social distancing, more and more young adults are taking to the isolated forests and mountains to enjoy everything nature has to offer. Instead of letting her go out in her every day tennis shoes, get a 20 year old woman these Newton Ridge Plus Women’s Hiking Boots from Columbia.
She’ll be able to climb through mud, snow, and rain with these boots. They’re made for comfort and high quality traction, so she’ll feel comfortable hiking even the most difficult of trails. They come in several different colors too, so you can pick whichever one you think will be her favorite.
Premium Bamboo Bathtub Tray
Talk about ultimate relaxation. This premium bamboo bathtub tray is the perfect gift for a spa queen.
This bathtub tray has an endless list of possible uses. For example, watching movies on her laptop, wrting, drinking a glass of ~non-alcoholic~ champagne, having a cup of coffee, or playing on her phone. It has a beautiful design and even comes with a reading rack to lean tablets and books against.
Jade Face Roller for Skin Detox
Jade face rollers are one of the newest big trends in the beauty world. Supposedly, they help to clear up the skin and prevent wrinkles and puffiness. They’re also supposed to aid in fighting acne and under eye circles. Lots of beauty bloggers have started touting this trend, which means lots of young women have become interested.
This jade roller from Roselyn Boutique uses natural jade and has two sides with two different sizes to accommodate different regions of the face. The set also comes with a bonus gua sha scraper that’s meant to improve circulation.
The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook
A 20 year old girl is most likely just starting out cooking for herself. Chances are, she’ll feel really lost. And, while there are a ton of recipes that she could find online, the The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook is great because of it’s simplistic recipes rounded up into a nice, neat, easy-to-read book.
This book is great because the recipes are made specifically for college kids. That means they are budget and user friendly. It’s got over 100 different recipes, plus variations on each recipe to keep it changing. She’ll learn the basics of cooking and adding her own touch with this student-geared cookbook.
Fitbit Versa 2
Like many other technologies, smartwatches have become extremely popular in the last few years. This year is no exception as we see smartwatches on the wrists of many young adults. The Fitbit Versa 2 is a great smartwatch for a 20-year-old woman. The watch tracks things like heart rate, calories burned, and steps per day.
However, it’s more than just your average fitness tracker. This watch also tracks several different sporting activities, from running to biking to a weights workout. You can also add different widgets to use, change the digital display of the watch face, and read text messages, check the weather, and pay with a credit card. The best part about this Fitbit watch is that you can buy additional bands for it, meaning the style possibilities are endless.
3/4 Sleeve Open Front Blazer
Like we’ve said before, 20 years old is the beginning of entering into adulthood. That means that you need to have at least a few professional outfits in your wardrobe. This 3/4 sleeve Open Front Blazer is a great option because it’s professional but still maintains that youthful feel.
Depending on how she styles it, this blazer can go out with friends or to a job interview. It comes in several different colors, but we like the black for it’s simplicity.
The decoration in most college apartments tends to be sparse. And it makes sense why. When you’re struggling to pay for food the last thing you’re thinking about is spending money on a throw pillow. But, decorations add life and comfort to a home, two things that are essential to stable mental health.
Because she probably won’t buy it for herself, consider gifting a 20 year old girl this set of throw pillows. It might seem like just a small thing, but in the end she’ll be just a bit happier to have a touch of personality in her space. We like this black gingham plaid pattern, but there are a lot of other patterns and colors to choose from.
Apple 13″ MacBook Air
If your 20 year old is in the search for a new laptop, the Macbook Air is a fantastic gift option. It is lightweight and a good size that makes it easy to carry from place to place.
Plus, if she uses an iPhone or any other Apple products, she’ll love the seamless linking between her devices. Macbooks tend to last quite some time and are perfect for everyday computer tasks like using the Internet, running word processors, or checking emails.
Stylish, Comfortable Sneakers
More and more young women are opting for the comfort of sneakers over the pain that heels bring. With this sneaker revolution, lots of sneaker brands have started ramping up their production to make stylish shoes that young woman will want to everywhere.
One of those brands is the European company Joomra, whose sneakers are marked with a distinctive 3D woven pattern. We like these 3D Woven Sneakers from them because of their practical, but stylish design. They have a low-profile and 3D woven upper that moves with your feet. The sole is designed after the shape of a feather, to move with the feet for added comfort. This black color will go with any outfit, but there are several other colors available in this style.
Facial Spa Headbands
There is nothing worse than washing your face and having your hair spill into your eyes and get wet. That’s why we suggest these facial spa headbands as a gift for a 20 year old woman. They’re cute, soft, and perfect to use when washing your face or applying an at-home facial. Plus, their size is adjustable and they come in lots of colors.
Herschel City Backpack
If the tote bag we mentioned earlier isn’t her style, consider this City Backpack from Herschel. It has a stylish yet functional design that is perfect for a young adult.
Herschel has been making quality bags for some time, and their products can be seen in the arms and on the backs of young women and men alike. We like this backpack for its minimalist style and roomy interior. It comes in several different color schemes, so you can find the perfect one for your 20 year old girl.

What it Means to Be 20 Years Old
While there are some exciting gifts for twenty somethings, this age is all about balance. It’s time to start leaving behind a bit of fun so the more mature and “big girl” aspects of life can enter. You should think about how you can properly prepare her for that transition. Although it might not seem like the sexiest gift to give, she’ll probably love it because it will enable her to mature and grow.
FAQs About Gift For 20 Year Old Woman
What do you get a girl for her 20th birthday?
A girl who is turning 20 is about to enter into a whole new stage of life: her 20’s. This can be quite a crazy time. We always like to recommend that a birthday gift be treated like a welcoming gift to that specific age. That being said, a woman’s gift for a 20th birthday should be something that addresses what being in your 20’s is about. Specifically, we suggest: the Crystal Beads 20th Birthday Necklace, this 3/4 length open front blazer, or The 5-Ingredient College Cookbook.
What gift to get a woman who has everything?
No one really has everything. But, if you’re trying to buy a gift for someone who seems like they already have everything they could ever want, think about what they might need (think of items like the Instant Pot Duo Plus Mini 9-in-1 electric cooker or You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Live and Awesome Life).
Alternatively, think of what could be a good gift from you to her. A personal touch is what makes a gift special anyway. Like they always say: it’s the thought that counts!
