Buying gifts for 20 – somethings can be hard. Everyone has such specific taste, and as adults with jobs they’re buying big ticket items that aren’t so fun. Little things that can relax them, provide comfort, or make them feel “more adult” are really welcome!
Female Wallet // Male Wallet // Coloring Book // Candle // Navy Gloves // Grey Gloves // Berry Scarf // Grey Scarf // Plaid Throw // Tan Slipper // Navy Slipper // Beer Cap Map // Drink Set // Cookbook // Ice Bucket
Everything here is under $50, and is sold at Target, Nordstrom or Amazon. I picked these because they are the easiest to get free shipping on, and have great return policies if you need to!
Coloring books // This is a great way to de-stress after work, and these books are actually really fun. This set from Amazon is great because you get pencils and a book.
Candles // Even for guys, having a candle burning can set the mood for relaxation or romance but whatever it is candles are generally the last thing on my shopping list. However after buying on I now believe everyone needs one! This grey flannel one is great and smells masculine. But this eucalyptus candle is perfect for when your 20-something has had a rough day and needs to relax.
Wallet // A new wallet would probably be welcome for any 20 – something, especially one that is still using their college wallet. A “grown-up” wallet can make them feel more comfortable in their new role! This Fossil one is great for women, and this card holder from Nordstrom is great for men who don’t want a bulky wallet.
Gloves // Do we all need them? Yes. But we don’t remember to get them until the first truly cold day in December and then pick up the nearest pair we can in whatever store we’re closest too. Gift them a great pair of gloves that look professional and will keep them warm. These ones from Nordstrom for women come in a lot of different colors and are seriously beautiful. Men’s gloves are hard in my opinion, but these look great!
Scarves // These are really similar to gloves, especially for guys. In my opinion, one great scarf that matches your winter coats is invaluable because you never have to spend time picking out a scarf, you just grab and go! Both scarves for women and men are classic and perfect for layering with a chic, professional coat!
Slippers // FYI concrete floors ar great in the summer, not so great in the winter. Heating costs can really get a 20-something down, so putting on another layer instead of cranking up the heat happens. These slippers are cozy and a perfect Christmas gift for any 20-something looking to keep warm this winter! (Men’s version and women’s version)
Home Items // There are some many things I would love to add to our apartment but our budget just doens’t allow it. For example, this beer cap map is perfect for the craft beer enthusiast in your life, as well as the couple that loves to try new things (aka if any family/friends like to read my posts, Matt & I would LOVE this). A thick and beautiful plaid throw is a great addition to any home, especially for nights curled up watching TV or football games! A cookbook for quick and easy dinners might be the perfect nudge for your favorite 20-something to stop ordering so much take out. Finally, this cocktail drink making set and ice bucket are just what they wish they had when friends come over!
Hopefully this helps you figure out what to buy for your friends, family and other loved ones in your life!
