Alright so- I wanted to get this post up before Black Friday hit so you can get alllllll the deals!
When I thought about what kind of gift guide I would write, I had a lot of different ideas. However, when I got to thinking, only one idea really made sense: a gift guide for girls in their 20’s. Why? Well, I’m a girl. In my 20’s… and so I guess you could say I’m kind of an expert on this.
These are all hand-picked items that I think most girls in their 20’s would love! They can be a tricky group to shop for, but I’m hoping these items will be pretty bullet-proof and well-loved by many. I hope you enjoy!
Gifts under $25
Air & Linen Mist ($9.50)
This is a surprisingly very useful product! Myself and many of my friends have it, and we LOVE it! It can be used to spritz into the air or onto any fabrics to freshen them up and give them a subtle, yet perfect scent. I chose the scent Northwoods Lodge, because it’s one of my favorites, but the Beverly + Third Candle Co. Etsy page has plenty of delicious scents to choose from… for only $9.50!
Glossier “Boy Brow” ($16)
If there’s one thing that girls in their 20’s love, it’s Glossier. Glossier all day everyday. Their boy brow product is iconic, practical, and sure to be loved by that girl in your life.
Sugar Lip Treatment- Tinted ($24)
When, might you ask, will I stop promoting this product? Literally never. It is the BEST lip product you will ever buy. It smells good, feels good, and looks good… Um, what could go wrong? This product is a lip balm that truly works to moisturize your lips, and is perfectly tinted to give your lips a nice color. I have the shade Honey, but all of the options are beautiful and subtle.
Madewell Striped Tee ($25 + 25% off with code “DONTSTRESS”)
Madewell makes really high-quality, cute clothes. A striped t-shirt from Madewell will surely become a staple in any girl’s closet, as it is wearable in the summer, and in the colder months when paired with cardigans or a jean jacket. Super easy, and sure to be loved!
Gigi Pip Pom Beanie ($20)
Who wouldn’t like a cozy knit pom beanie? Gigi Pip is one of my favorite shops ever, and their hats adorable! I picked out this Samantha beanie, but definitely browse the site because they’re all to die for! Feel free to pick a neutral color to match everything, or go for something fun and bold!
Gap Plaid Scarf ($14.97 with code “BLKFRIDAY”)
These scarves are SO SOFT. I have two of them and I love them. A good plaid scarf is a perfectly adorable and useful gift for all of those northerners in your life. No risk here!
Urban Outfitters Velvet Scrunchie Set ($12 + 20% off for UO Members)
Haven’t you heard the news? Scrunchies are BACK and better than ever! I’m seriously in love with this velvet set because it offers a lot of variety for only $12 and there are three color sets to choose from. For $12, this is the perfect little gift that your 20-something is sure to love.
Gifts under $50
20 oz. S’Well Traveler Tumbler ($40)
Is it possible for a water bottle to be any prettier? No. S’Well bottles are really popular right now, and for good reason! They keep drinks cold for 24 hours and warm for 12 hours, making them an incredibly useful product! I chose this Calacatta Gold color, just because I think it’s the prettiest!
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed Highlighter ($38)
This highlighter is iconic honestly. I (& pretty much every other girl) want this. It’s so pigmented and gorgeous- who wouldn’t?! My favorite shade is “Opal”, but you should take your gift-reciever’s skin tone into consideration!
“Bliss” Plus Throw ($39.99)
If a blanket has 5 stars after 441 reviews, it must be a kick-ass blanket. This throw from Nordstrom looks SO SOFT and it comes in 18 gorgeous colors! (Also I’d just like to throw out there that the tassels are adorable.) Another gift that really can’t go wrong.
Gifts under $100
Madewell White Cableknit Pullover Sweater ($98 + 25% off with code “DONTSTRESS”)
This sweater is SO CUTE. So classic. So perfect! I think any girl in her 20’s would be all over this beauty!
D+K Renewal Kilim Lumbar Pillow ($52)
If your gift-receiver has their own place, or even if they don’t, these D+K Renewal pillows are the perfect gift! They have so many beautiful patterns and colors. Throw pillows are a great gift because we LOVE them, but it’s hard to splurge and spend the money on them yourselves! I chose this “048” color as my personal favorite… If D+K Renewal decides to do a Black Friday deal, you can get this beauty for under $50! (There are also some other pillow sizes on the site that cost less as well!)
Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana ($76 for 1.6 oz.)
Okay yep, I know. Perfume is risky. However, I know a LOT of women that use this perfume and they ALL love it! It’s a very crisp, clean scent and I’m obsessed with it. You always run the risk of the gift-receiver not liking the scent but just get a gift receipt and you’re good to go. If they do like the scent, this will make for the perfect luxurious gift!
Olivia Burton Watch ($110)
I have always wanted an Olivia Burton watch… They’re SO. DAMN. PRETTY! For this gift, you’d have to know the receiver’s style a little bit more than the other gifts on this list. There are lots of options and designs, I am just featuring this marble floral option because it’s my personal favorite! Stay tuned- there may be a deal on these beauties for Black Friday!
Patagonia Re-Tool Snap-T Fleece Pullover ($119)
My Patagonia Re-Tool Snap-T is my lifeeee! I wear it all the damn time. Actually, I end up putting it on every night before I go to bed because it’s just so cozy! They have a ton of colors, but the plain cream color is one of my personal favorites! I wouldn’t be surprised if Patagonia put up a little Black Friday deal…
Polaroid Mobile Printer ($104)
This device is so cool! It allows you to print little Polaroid versions of any photos in your phone camera roll instantly. Any girl would be sure to have a ton of fun with this! The printing quality is much better than that of an actual Polaroid camera, and you can retake the photo multiple times before printing it, making it an amazing device. If you gift this device to someone, remember to buy some film as well, or they won’t be able to use it right away- which would be major *sad face*.
That’s all for now! If you have any questions or want to see more gift guides, feel free to reach out.
Happy trails to you,
