How do I turn a large image with low dpi into smaller, higher quality

I have a 20x20" jpg that is 72dpi. I don't have the original file, or any other versions of it. Using photoshop, how can I turn it into a smaller picture that is a higher dpi?

I've spent the last 30 minutes googling this without any success, getting stuck in internet cul-de-sacs about the "definition" of image size and what DPI actually means.
I'm trying to print an old image as a gift for someone who is very picky about pixellated images. He'd rather have a 3x3" image that looks very high quality than a 10x10 that looks pixellated.
I know this has to be easy as pie, but could someone tell me how to do this? I've got photoshop. The image size is currently 20" by 20" at 72dpi, I'd like to send it to the printer at ~200ish.
