A 22-year-old female may still be in college or just starting out in a new profession. No matter what she is doing with her life, many 22-year-old women probably don't have too much money. Choose a gift that is something she might not be able to buy for herself. You could also choose something that goes along with her current endeavors.
Most women enjoy being pampered. For a woman who is turning 22, choose a gift that allows her to pamper herself. Choose a gift card to a local spa where she can have a massage, facial, manicure and pedicure or even have her hair done. Alternatively, put together a gift basket with pampering goodies, such as bubble bath, bath salts, moisturizing foot cream, a nail file and fingernail polish.
Purchasing clothing for a 22-year-old woman can be difficult, not only because of finding her size but also because choosing the perfect item can be almost impossible. It is much easier to choose accessories that she can use to go along with her favorite outfits. For example, choose a scarf, hat or gloves if she lives in a cold climate. If you know where she likes to shop, choose a piece of jewelry from that store, such as earrings, a necklace, a bracelet or a ring. Many trendy stores have popular jewelry styles at inexpensive prices.
Twenty-two-year-old women enjoy traveling. Whether they are going to visit friends or heading out on a big trip before starting a job after college, there are many items she needs. For example, a fashionable passport holder allows her to keep important items handy. Give her a rolling suitcase--which will save her back as she walks through airports--to use as a carry-on. If she enjoys driving vacations, you can't go wrong with a gas gift card.
Celebrate her birthday by choosing gifts that were popular in the year she was born. For example, for a woman born in 1988, choose DVDs of movies that were popular that year. Go with classics like "Rain Man," "Coming to America," "Big" and "The Land Before Time." Bestselling books and albums that were released that year are other good ideas.
