BEST GIFT IDEAS FOR WOMEN 2023
Best Gift Ideas for Women Under $20
While these gifts don’t break the bank, they are still sure to impress!
1. Handheld Frother
A handheld frother is one of the most practical (and inexpensive!) gifts out there. If you know they drink coffee, tea, or any powdered drink, a frother is a game changer! They work so well to incorporate everything together, and they create SO much foam. I’ve already bought handheld frother’s for everyone in my family and it gets used everyday!
2. Hidden Pocket Scrunchies
This is one of those items you never would think to ask for, but makes SO much sense. Most leggings and/or shorts don’t have pockets and when going for a run or walk it can be SO hard to store keys, cash, or any other necessities. This way she can keep it in her scrunchie! It fits multiple keys and up to 10 single dollar bills! She’ll be obsessed.
3. Gold Plated Sterling Silver Small Hoop Earrings
These earrings only cost $12, but look expensive. There’s a reason they have over 10k 5 star reviews! They’re perfect for any age, and huuuuge bonus, they (most likely) won’t irritate even the most sensitive ears. I know, because I have a pair I wear every single day. My ears ALWAYS get irritated by jewelry, yet with these they are totally fine! My mom and aunt also have pairs that they wear pretty much every week. So whether you’re shopping for a friend, parent, or relative, these earrings are sure to impress.
Encourage healthy habits in the next year by gifting a journal! You can even go a step further and get one specifically tailored to what they are interested in, such as a gratitude journal, a meal planning journal, or an art journal. Pair it with a few cute pens and you have the perfect gift.
5. Atomic Habits
This book is the perfect gift for anyone who loves to set New Year’s Resolutions! This book is a must read for anyone interested in learning how to make new habits at any age.
6. Ice Roller
Ice rollers are popular for a reason! Not only do they help with puffiness, but they help wake you up in the morning. If you know someone who struggles waking up early, this is the perfect gift. It’s also such a good gift for anyone that gets headaches – if you’re not convinced just read some of the reviews!
Succulents are easy, adorable, and thoughtful gifts! They’re not expensive and you can find one at pretty much any large grocery store. Or, you can get one online too. You can also take this gift up a notch by buying or decorating a custom pot for the succulent(s). If you’re looking for a gift for a group of friends, you can decorate and/or paint a custom pot with each person’s name on it. So cute!
8. Cereal Candle
Candles are the perfect safety net gift. Don’t know someone super well? Get them a candle! Every girl I know loves candles. It’s also a great gift for anyone at any age – you can find all sorts on Etsy. The one above is soy-based, non-toxic, and is pretty danggg cute.
9. Shea Body Lotion
It’s winter, everyone needs lotion! This vanilla scented lotion leaves your skin super moisturized and hydrated. Pair it with a candle and it’s the perfect self-care gift.
10. Vinyl Glass Cup
These cups are SO fun and will immediately become their new go to coffee cup. Or, if they don’t drink coffee there is seriously an option for everyone! You can also fill it up with fuzzy socks, treats, and/or a $5-10 coffee gift card to make a cute, easy gift basket.
11. Wall Print
If you’ve ever been on Etsy, chances are you’ve been overwhelmed by how many AMAZING art prints there are. You can buy a physical print or digital print (if buying a digital print, I recommend printing it out at your local print shop before gifting!). If they have a cocktail bar, this is the cutest wall decor. Or, just take a look around Etsy and find one that speaks to them!
12. Gouache Painting Set
This is the perfect gift for any artsy friends/family members. No matter their age, this paint is a great gift. It’s great quality for beginners or experienced painters who have never used gouache before. I have this exact set and find it so fun to use. It’s also a great gift for anyone wanting to find a new, relaxing hobby. Note: this item fluctuates in price, so it might be a bit higher than $20 at certain times.
