Gift giving can be a tedious task - especially if you aren't particularly good at choosing presents for other people. I've compiled below a list of 50 items you can find and/or make for $20 or less. That's right - women's gifts for under $20! It CAN be done if you shop around and maybe peruse clearance shelves or outlet stores. These gifts are suitable for moms, grandmas, sisters, aunts, cousins, daughters, girlfriends, and wives - with the exception of the massage lotion. I'm fairly certain you can figure out who not to buy that for!

  1. Candles
  2. Dinner
  3. Manicure
  4. Expensive socks
  5. Novelty / costume jewelry
  6. CD
  7. Aromatherapy bath items
  8. Journal to record feelings
  9. Flowers
  10. Warm sweater
  11. Spa slippers
  12. Cushy robe
  13. Mini-Massage
  14. Pedicure
  15. Family/friend photo package
  16. Shelf you stain from the craft store
  17. Photo collage
  18. Scrapbook
  19. Movie
  20. Body Sprays
  21. Massage lotions with a coupon for a free rub – NO strings attached!
  22. NICE carry-all bag
  23. Gourmet Chocolate
  24. Ceramic figurine
  25. Jeweled barrettes
  26. T-shirt of favorite team
  27. Book
  28. Booze
  29. Chocolate covered strawberries
  30. Hand-made jewelry
  31. Homemade baked goods
  32. Gourmet coffee or tea
  33. Snapfish for a personalized photo gift
  34. Cookie basket
  35. Bonsai tree
  36. Personalized stationary
  37. Bamboo planter
  38. Handmade throw pillows (better if YOUR hands made them)
  39. MP3 Player
  40. Pretty Wallet
  41. Fondue set
  42. 2 month subscription to NetFlix
  43. Flavored lip glosses
  44. Magazine subscription
  45. Surprise picnic lunch with cheese, crackers and wine
  46. Throw blanket
  47. Movie tickets

I hope you found this list of gifts helpful. And if you're looking for a gift for that special man in your life please look at auirek's Hub 50 Gifts for Men for $20.

I am glad you included a fondue set. Many men don't even know what that is, but it's a great gift for a woman. If he buys some chocolate and strawberries to go along with it, even better! Great hub and voted up!

Awesome topic for a hub! So many of these items are available in a range of prices with different options (color, size, etc.). It isn't hard to find something that will fit the woman you are shopping for.

I'd love to get just about any one of those gifts:) I love the Bobsai tree! I had one - this friend of ours is into Boatany and he grows them. They are very tedious and require lots of care - I killed mine almost immediately:(. No green thumb! I would try again but I can't stand the thought of killinng another one!

Another useful list of suggestions for the clueless such as myself. Voting this Up and Useful.

Aha...you have made the list so clear. gotta fwd to my better half with valentine approaching ;)

thanks Ardie!

I think I can work out with many of these ideas. By the way $20 is too much in my currency. Half of that money will be good amount to spend for women I admire.

Ardie, I like buying or doing almost everything on the list. Nothing gives me more pleasure but I honestly wouldn't expect a guy to give me candles or a magazine subscription for valentine, birthday or Christmas yes. I think I am living in a fairytale world....lol

An iTunes card is also a good idea, I recently got one from my sister and was very happy with it!

Hey Haunty! Would you believe the image of the socks took me the longest to decide upon?? All the socks I found and LOVED were over $20 :P

Hi TFH :) I hope you buy your love some candles and socks!

Okay, Sunshine – they’re all on their way!

Soconfident, Im glad to help

Alecia, thanks and thanks! This was a fun Hub because I just thought about all the things I would like :)

Hi Jeannieinabottle – Mmm fondue…I only thought of this one because it’s what my husband got for me last year :) And the chocolate and strawberries, SO romantic!

Randomcreative, thanks :)I was trying to pick items that even a daughter could buy for a mother or a sister could buy for her sister…so I wanted the list to be a broad range, thanks for noticing and appreciating that!

RHW – I would LOVE a bonsai tree as a gift! Sadly I kill everything I get (plant-like) too. No green thumb here :( True story – I did great on a spider plant from my youngest daughter for a year and it grew babies. I plucked a baby off and rooted it in a dish – it even grew for me!!! THEN I sucked it up with the sweeper hose when I was getting cob webs off a windowsill. It never did take root again hahah

Alocsin, thanks! I asppreciate you reading and voting

Ruchira! Best of luck and let me know what you get ;)

Hi Vinaya, many of these ideas can be bought for less than the $20. But in America most people tend to stay around the 20-25$ range for gifts.

Cardisa, haha this is a list for anyone buying for a woman – if my husband got me a magazine subscription for a gift I’d be a little…eh too :)

Artrush – thanks for reading!

Claudio – that’s another great idea :) I know I would LOVE to get an iTunes card :) Thanks for adding it

You have a lot of items on your list that I wouldn't have thought of buying. There are lots of items suitable for every age group - in fact I saw six or seven things that my teenage granddaughter would probably like! Nice hub!

Ardie profile image

Ardie 4 years ago from Neverland Author

Stephanie! I always try to be traditional AND creative with my gifting. Most people in my family HAVE or buy anything they want so creativity is a must :) Thanks!

PDX, you made me laugh so hard I snorted Hahahah!!! I do NOT want to see the type of male stripper a 20 would buy :P

Thanks Shell-Belle! Let me know what the husband decides to get you. After looking at this list again I just might need to go buy myself some cool socks :)
