This year however, I’ve committed to making a change.

My family seems to be growing every year and at this point, we span a fair few generations. I’ve been looking for gifts for women in their 20s, 30s and 40s. By now, I feel like an expert.

This time around, I’m sharing the best gifts for 20-something women. Whether you’re shopping for a friend, girlfriend or family member, spending a little or a lot, I’m confident when I say there’s something for everyone here.

Here are 13 unique gift ideas, starting from just £8.
