21st Birthday Gifts & Present Ideas - 68 items
All out of 21st birthday gift ideas past a key to the door? You’re going to love our curated picks SO HARD. The big TWO-ONE is a major milestone and it deserves to be celebrated accordingly – with a keepsake gift your birthday boy or girl will treasure forever. (Hey, adulting is hard – you might want to ease the pain with something fun, like a top hat wine cooler! Or mark the occasion with something classic and luxe, like a leather-band watch.)
If you’re looking for 21st birthday gifts for her, we’ve totally got you covered, with everything from a rose gold number necklace to a personalised cocktail shaker and a leather travel jewellery case for her next big adventure. We’ve also got stacks of unique pressie ideas for guys, too. Think a personalised silver money clip, handcrafted leather watch box and engraved hip flask.
We know that racking your brain for original, thoughtful yet fun 21st birthday gift ideas can be a tough task (especially if, er, it’s been a while since you were 21), so we went ahead and did the hard work for you. Need some giftspo? We’ve rounded up a few classic 21st gifts to show you how you can upgrade them with a modern twist…
Top of the list of classic 21st birthday presents is the ‘key to the door’. It’s a traditional symbol of arrival in adulthood, but if a tacky, oversized, glitter-covered memento isn’t really your gifting style, look for a more sophisticated take. We love a dainty personalised key necklace or an embossed leather key ring as a modern spin on this classic idea.
Booze is another popular pressie, but before you reach for the celebratory bottle of bubbles to cheers their 21 years, consider something a little more lasting like a personalised beer tankard, an engraved sterling silver hip flask or a cocktail shaker that’s customised with their initials. If you want a gift that screams ‘FUN’ (because, let’s be honest, they’re not an old fogie yet!), we’ve got drinking games to make a night that they’ll never forget… or, er, remember.
Thoughtful keepsakes are a milestone birthday no-brainer. From a framed 21st birthday typographic print to a wooden memory box, there are plenty of cool keepsakes that your new adult will treasure. Combine the personalised with the practical with a custom engraved watch stand, an elegant bespoke bracelet or a soft leather travel case to journey with them on their next big adventure.
Whatever you choose, any gift from our curated collection is bound to be a winner with your birthday gal or guy. Then all that’s left to do is put the champers on ice and get ready to party...
