Either the LEGO Architecture series or Creator series like 5770 Lighthouse Island.LEGO Creator Lighthouse Island 5770

Pretty much all of the lego sets come with instructions that are easy to follow.

First question is - what's the budget? If she's 19 or 20 IMO she may have the patience to go through the instructions, count the lines, etc.

A set I would actually really recommend and sounds more up her alley & isn't too complicated, is Medieval Marketplace. It's one of the best sets ever made IMO, and is available now but it's $100.00. Check it out on Amazon though for a view. Castle sets are a little costly too but also an idea since the line is being stopped soon because of Lord of the Rings (same with Harry Potter). Medieval marketplace is one that's been around since 2009, a long time for Lego so I expect it to be discontinued over the next year or so.

If price is no object, I'd say go for a modular set though note these are definitely more complicated (but they look so good!). Right now you can get Fire Brigade, Pet Shop, Town Hall and Grand Emporium. These are bigger sets though with close to 2,000 pieces and are built over a longer period of time. The price range of these at Lego.Shop.com is steeper; anywhere from $150.00 to $200.00 (each).

Otherwise, like Mike I would suggest creator Houses. The Lighthouse is a good one, the Log Cabin is also nice and thsoe are between 30-40 dollars - the LIghthouse I've seen on sale for $30 before. The Lighthouse is actually a pretty neat set. There is a new creator house coming out this summer that will probably be close to $50 that is called "Seaside House" depending on when your time frame is.

And speaking of Harry Potter, if she likes movies like Pirates of the Carribean or Harry Potter, those sets are still around right now & could be going on clearance (check Wal-Mart sometimes). Spongebob sets are also a reasonable priced alternative & simple builds. Lego City sets are also a thought.

All Lego sets come with instructions and there are on-line communities that have them too. The box's give you ideas for age ranges on the sets too (16+, etc.)

Seconding the architecture sets. They make beautiful display pieces when you're done with them. I also got my hubby this huge Lego train set that was marvelous, it even had a dining car with tables. Expensive but so worth it. :)

Though it may have already past, advice for future givers-
There are not many lego sets made for girls, and the ones that are are aimed at young elementary schoolchildren. Most lego nowadays, especially since the demise of Bionicle, have been aimed toward a younger audience, and the more complex sets cost a lot. I own the Grand Emporium- huge, great set, incredible replay and retail value, and incredible detailed. Cost- $150. Unless you use cash as toilet paper, I recommend, as people said, architecture sets, though one of the best things for teenage lego fans to do, along with not telling anybody this secret obsession, is get tons of bricks- traditional and strange- and look at something someone else made and recreate is as your own. And then make a world out of the stuff you do, and repeatedly have natural disasters that force you to rebuild it. :) That truly is the joy of Lego, isn't it?

I know that this discussion is old, but I like the Landmark Series. http://architecture.lego.com/en-us/products/ Amazon has some good prices on some of them.

I recommend the Lego Grand Emporium or the Lego Pet Shop.

2182 and 2032 pieces of Lego Fun respectively.

I have a friend in her 30's that loves all the Creator sets that involve houses. She finds it relaxing.

Get a hero Factory set. Speeda Demon is amazing! He is a big green dude on a purple motorbike, It's an amazing concept.
