Sharing is caring!

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!

Personal Care

• Compact

We all need a mirror in our purse sometimes. But how about one that is a show-stopper all by itself?

Peacock Mirror/Compact

• Lips

• Hand Lotion

• Nail Polish

Nail polish is a good gift, but it depends on the person. Some like neutrals, some like bold. I stuck with either sets or rose gold…which is fabulous and looks great on everyone.

• Bath

Bath stuff is a favorite with all the women I know! And since it’s cheap, it’s easy to put together a “gift basket”. Include Bath bombs, Bath loofahsBubble Bath, and/or Bath scrubs. Some of my favorite bath bombs:

Bath Bombs Gift Set of 8
Aprilis Bath Bombs


• Ghirardelli

You can order direct from Ghirardelli or you can order from Amazon. There are very different options on each place.

For gifts under $20 from Ghirardelli direct, I suggest:
12 piece box with bow
18 piece caramel assortment in pretty box
• Or click here to see all gifts under $20

From Amazon:

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

• Coffees

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

I also suggest samplers. Fun for them and sure to be at least one they’ll like!

World Market 5-Coffee Sampler (ground)

• Teas

I love this idea! It’s unique and works for almost everyone. I highly suggest Adiago teas>>>Gifts for lovers of tea with free wrapping of all items.

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.

For the actual tea, I suggest:
Flavored loose-leaf from Adiago
Gifts from Adiago under $20
Tea Forte loose-leaf sampler from Amazon

• 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.

Stella Rosa is also a very popular, reasonably priced wine.

• Gift card from

Gift card from 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

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

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.

• Books

All the women in my life have very different reading styles. However, this book is good for any women.

Girl, Wash Your Face

• 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.

Starry Night by Van Gogh

• Candles

• Reed Diffuser

This gift both looks good as a decoration AND makes the place smell great.

Rose Cottage Lavender Diffuser

• 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

These are my NUMBER ONE used item in my kitchen.

Adjustable Measuring Cup (2 Cups)
Adjustable Measuring Spoons

• 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.

• Jewelry

It can be hard to find jewelry on a budget, but I found a couple of pieces. I’ve also linked everything under $20 on Amazon.
