I LOVE shopping for women. Myself. My mom. My grandma. My sisters-in-law. I don’t know why, but it seems like they’re just easier than men to shop for.
That being said…the women in my life are very different. And I want to get a gift for them that they appreciate. And shows that I’ve spent time thinking about them. Not that I just bought the first thing that I ran across. So over the years I’ve learned the best gifts for women. This post is dedicated to amazing gifts for women under $20.
Whether you’re looking for birthday gifts for her, Christmas gifts for her, or just gift ideas for women, this is the post for you. The best part? Buys gifts online and save time!

A quick note: I tried to keep as many of these gifts as possible from Amazon, since I know a LOT of people shop there. If you’re not an Amazon Prime member, did you know you can try it out for 30 days for free? <<<Just click there to get your 30-day free trial.
• Hand Lotion
• Nail Polish
You can order direct from Ghirardelli or you can order from Amazon. There are very different options on each place.
Extra-large Caramel Duo assortment. As you can see, there isn’t any pretty box, just the bag. But you can dress it up yourself. You also get more chocolate for the price.
• Hot Cocoa
My top suggestions is to get a cute box, fill it with white & gold crinkle paper, and put together some options from World Market.
• All cocoas available
• Salted Caramel Cocoa
• Dulce de Leche White Chocolate Cocoa
• Red Velvet Cocoa
Amazon also has a few choices available, though most are kind of “cheap” (if you get my meaning). However, I found the following:
• Land O Lakes Sampler in Black Tie Box
This is for coffee lovers. I also suggest it only if they’re “open” about their coffee. I know a couple of people who will ONLY drink one thing. If that’s so, find out what their thing is. Otherwise, I highly suggest trying out Peet’s Gourmet Coffee. I have a coupon for them>>> 10% Off & Free Shipping on first order for new email subscribers
If you don’t know if they have the necessary implements, all you really need is a tea infuser.
• A folding option that fits most mugs is available >>>here direct from Adiago.
• Stainless steel tea balls from Amazon. <<<Those are the ones I use in my household.
• Wines & Accessories
Wine is a pretty personal thing, but you can always try, especially if they love trying new wines.
I, personally, am a fan of fruit wines. Especially local ones.
• Gift card from Restuarants.com
Gift card from Restuarants.com. Spend $10 for a $25 Certificate at a local restaurant! <<<click there to check out.
A couple of caveats:
• The restaurants are more local, small-owned ones. So the pictures don’t look the best online. I would check out the full website for the restaurant (if they have one) to get a better idea.
• Limited by region. And not what you would think. I think the places around my mom’s little town in Iowa look better than the options around my big town of Charleston, SC!
• See if the gift certificate has any restrictions, such as hours or days of use. If so, go with a different gift. You don’t want the gift to be a hassle to use.
Coloring books for adults. Yes, seriously. I’ve discovered these are amazing stress-reliever. Favorite books: Stress-Relieving Animals and Kaleidoscope Images.
-If you know they already like to color, try these “Colorful Blessings Cards.” Out of the box and they probably don’t already own it!
– If they don’t already color, check out these Artlicious 50-pack Coloring Pencils or Crayola Classic 50-Pack for Adults.
• Scratch-Off Book Poster
For the book lover in your life! For a bonus, include some of the books listed on the poster so they have a head start.
Journals are great, unique gift for women. There are a couple of ways to go. You can go with “plain” lined journals so they can write what they want. Or you can go with a guided journal since as a gratitude journal. I included some of both below.
All the women in my life have very different reading styles. However, this book is good for any women.
• Magazine Subscriptions
One of my favorite gifts- both to give and receive- is magazine subscriptions!
Amazon has some great options: Women’s Interest Magazine Subscriptions.
• Wall Art
Wall art is a great gift for any woman! Who doesn’t love cute decor stuff? Since everyone’s style is different, this was a hard one to pick an item for. But I figured you can’t go wrong with a classic.
• Reed Diffuser
This gift both looks good as a decoration AND makes the place smell great.
• Personalized Picture, Framed
A meaningful picture, framed. To often we snap pics, store them online, and never have them around the house. This works for guys and gals. My father-in-law loves pictures of him and his Corvette framed. My mother-in-law (since we’re talking about gifts for women) loves pictures of the family.
For frames, I LOVE ArtToFrames and own some myself. They have some “distressed wood/paint” ones that look great, as well as other options.
Americanflat has a reasonably priced tri-frame you might like.
• Adjustable Measuring
• Serving Platter
You can’t go wrong with Rachael Ray!
• 12″ Platter– comes in multiple colors
• Spatula & Whisk
One thing I love about KitchenAid is that you always know you’re getting quality. While I don’t have the whisk yet, I do have the spatula. This is amazing. From regular stirring to scooping to whatever…this is a multi-purpose tool that I use throughout the cooking process.
