Young Women Gifts FAQ


When in doubt about what kind of gift to give a woman, a Lululemon gift card is my go-to.

Lululemon has tons of great items for her to choose from, plus they’re a super popular brand for a reason. She’s sure to find something she loves there!

Everyone has different preferences and tastes, so it depends a lot on the woman. But if I had to choose the top 3 best gifts for ladies, it would be a Personalized Name Necklace, Lululemon’s Scuba Hoodie, and Warmies Marshmallow Warming Boots.

Any gift that shows you’re paying attention to her interests or the latest trendy gifts are sure to impress a young woman! It means a lot for a girl to know someone is thinking of her or to be treated to something she’s had her eye on but wouldn’t normally buy for herself.

Etsy and Uncommon Goods are my favorite places to shop online when it comes to finding gifts for her. They have a huge variety of unique, meaningful, and just plain cool gifts you won’t find anywhere else, and the selection changes all the time.

I love how easy Uncommon Goods makes it to find gifts by recipient, and the editor curated picks on Etsy are always amazing. They’re super enjoyable to browse, too. I’ve turned so many friends into converts for these websites, it’s kind of ridiculous lol.
