Hobbies for Women list ideas

Here are tons of hobbies for Women in 20s, all the (stereo)typically girly hobbies that are so much fun! These are perfect for anyone with girly flair, wherever you’re at in your 20s, whether you are living with your family, living with friends or housemates, or just moved in to your first proper house. Go for whatever excites you the most – I tried to include some unusual hobbies to have a go at also!


Not only is it so much fun creating different outfits and channeling your favourite characters, this is such a creative hobby as an outfit or costume is completely open to interpretation – plus there is a social side of meeting with likeminded people, at photoshoots or conventions. You could even involve your pet and make little costumes for them too!


There are so many cute things to bake! Live out your dreams of mastering macarons, polishing up pastries and creating amazing edibles that you can bring on a picnic with you, cottagecore style.


Gardening is a great hobby and can allow you to create a beautiful outside space.

You could even volunteer to help care for gardens near you, any parks or gardens of stately homes would be perfect and allow you to have a behind the scenes look at how things are run there, plus you get to learn so many new skills and gain access to a wealth of information and guidance along the way. Creating – and helping to create and curate – beautiful outdoor spaces is such a beautiful thing to put out in to the world, as parks and gardens and green spaces power the life around us.

Outdoor design plans are available for free on the internet and you can use them to create your own garden design. It can be as big or small as you would like, a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, or it can be an extension of your home with a place to grow vegetables and herbs. There are so many options and ideas, especially in places like Pinterest, with so many different things to add in, pretty ornaments, homes for wildlife, pretty lighting or garden sheds for storage too.

Creating a beautiful outdoor living space is not as expensive or difficult as you might think. It’s something to add to over time, over time adding and building in more permanent features like a glamorous pergola or gazebo.

The very first step is to choose an area of the garden that has good drainage, as well as plenty of sunlight. You need to consider what type of soil you have, whether it is sandy or clay-based. If it’s clay-based, you need to add some compost to the soil before planting anything. Try peat free compost as it is so much better for the enviroment!

Growing house plants

If you want to live the cottagecore lifestyle but don’t have access to an outdoor space, worry not!
