I'm trying to come up with a gift idea for my 36yo female close relative - which should be easy as it's more or less my age so therefore I should know what sort of thing to get. Except our circumstances are very different - she is single, no children, shares house with another family member. Used to be an avid traveller but not in last few years. Likes gardening / nature / being outdoors. Any suggestions please? Budget £20ish. Thanks :-)

Lovely warm socks if she's outdoorsy.
Smartwool and Bridgedale make good ones. I work outside a lot, and play outside a lot. Can never have too many warm socks - high wool
content a must.

How about the Tim Peake book? Amazing pictures from space. It's what I'm asking for smile

Atlas Obscura, brilliant quirky book about far flung places?

Molten Brown handwash. Smells gorgeous, gets used up slowly, so doesn't add to clutter, but lasts long enough to feel good.

Id agree with the Molton brown it's always a treat (im her age)

Good secateurs (you get what you pay for, so up to your budget).

A lovely bag of bulbs from Sarah Raven.

A personalised Ordnance Survey map centred on her home.

A beautiful pot for planting things in.

Gardening gloves.

A brilliant little knife, eg Opinel brand.

<<whoops, that appears to be my Christmas wish list>>

If she wears hats, Barts have some gorgeous ones for about £20-25. Or if she's into makeup-an eyeshadow palette or similar. Or some Laura mercier hand cream-they used to do a delicious smelling creme brûlée one, not sure if still available.
