If you know what she's interested in, then it's easy to purchase something for a 20-year-old girl. If you're not sure what she likes, then you have to go with some generalities. She's a young woman, and most women generally fall into a few different categories.

The Book Worm
If she seems well-read, but you don't know exactly what genre of literature she might be interested in, then purchase a book that is on the best seller's list from a large chain bookstore. If she doesn't like the book, or already read it, she can take it back and get what she wants. Or, you can just go the easy route and get her a gift card to a book store so she can pick out what she wants.
If the 20-year-old young lady always shows up well dressed in the latest fashions, it would be safe to assume she enjoys the latest clothing. Shop at a department store and purchase her a new sweater or top. If you're not sure what size to get, ask the sales clerk to help you. Or, purchase jewellery to complement an outfit that you've already seen her in. Another option would be to buy her a subscription to a fashion magazine such as "Vogue."
The Well-Manicured Lady
If the young lady is well-groomed she might enjoy a spay day. Most young ladies would enjoy a new haircut, manicure, pedicure, facial or mud pack. Spas have various packages to choose from, from an all-day pampering event to a mani-pedi. Pick out something for her based on your budget. If you can afford it, get her a package for two so she can enjoy the day with a friend, or with you.
The Technologically-Advanced Woman
If she seems to be constantly playing with her cell phone, MP3 player or other electronic gadget, consider buying her a new toy to play with. Most women in their 20s enjoy any cutting edge gadget such as a new smart cell phone, computer tablet or digital camera. Less expensive items might be something to use with the gadgets she already has such as software, an upgrade or case. She might appreciate a new, leather computer case.
A young lady who loves to cook and bake might enjoy some items to help her with that passion. Peruse the small appliances section of a department or speciality cooking store for the latest in food gadgets. If she enjoys a certain celebrity chef, look for something made by that person. If she loves to try new exotic foods, purchase a gift token for a restaurant with an international theme. Purchase a membership to a chocolate or fruit of the month club.
