Gefjun is depicted as a mature woman, often wearing a crown of flowers. The items that she is depicted holding varies depends on region and social class. For example she is seen bearing sheafs of wheat, in peasant communities. A cornucopia over flowing with produce, in wealthier communities.

Gefjun is worshiped throughout Nifalfheimr and by most classes. Common gifts bestowed upon her are bread and honey, thought any produce are seen as acceptable gifts.
