During their 20s and 30s, women cross many milestones in their lives, such as college graduation, career advancement, marriage and motherhood. They also use these years to develop talents, learn hobbies, explore interests and to establish and express their identities. Gifts for these women should represent milestones and encourage them in those early life pursuits.

Acknowledge special milestones in the recipient's life with gifts that she can cherish years from now;. a good milestone marker is a gift she can look at every day. For the college graduate, check out the college's website or bookstore and look for mementos reminding her of her alma mater. Many colleges offer decorative mirrors or even chairs along these lines. Offer to frame and mat newspaper clippings related to her professional growth, the footprints of her children or a favourite wedding photo. Give a pendant engraved with an important date, or present the executive with an engraved business card holder or another accessory she can proudly display on her desk.
The next time you're around the intended gift recipient, pay attention to how she expresses herself through her wardrobe, home decor, pasttimes, and book titles she drops in conversation. Help support her style and identity, and choose gifts she can wear, become involved in and talk about. If she has a trademark accessory--like dangly earrings, scarves or trendy reading glasses--she'll like similar items from you. Give her the latest book by her favourite author or a CD of her favourite music genre. For home decor gifts, choose tasteful lamps or unique tealight holders that match her decor or are in the shape of her favourite animal.
The dreams, causes and life pursuits of a 20- to 30-year-old woman provide the framework for the rest of her life. Gifts that acknowledge your support of her goals will encourage her to strive harder and help sustain her on her journey to get to them. Books that outline success stories from others who once stood where she is now make excellent gifts. Also consider tickets to professional development conferences or donations to the charity or ministry she supports (made in her name, of course). If she's a budding entrepreneur, give her some tools for the trade to help her get started. Offer to purchase her small business license or give a gift subscription to a trade magazine. Let her choose her own business card design and then offer to take care of the printing costs. For the woman who dreams of travel, give a coffee table book highlighting her destination or money to start a savings account designated for travel only.
