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 gift ideas 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 for your little ‘big’ girl 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.
A young guy in his prime is gonna want something cool and fashionable, but also something he can keep forever. Booze is obviously a 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 for your bestie. From a framed 21st birthday typographic print to a wooden memory box, there are plenty of cool keepsakes that your new adult bud 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.
Your son feels like a man now, so a present that represents his newfound adulthood will hit the right note. A beautifully handcrafted wallet that can be engraved with a personalised message is ideal, as is a pair of custom cufflinks with his monogram.
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…
A 21st birthday party is a significant occasion for adolescents all around the world, so make it one to remember!
Buying rounds of drinks for all your friends is a fun idea, but can result in a hefty tab. So while a shindig at your favourite bar isn’t a bad choice, it’s not as exciting as some other ways that one could celebrate. Put your hard-earned cash to better use with one of the 21st birthday party ideas listed below.
A long table with your favourite peeps and an endless flow of rose is a great way to celebrate the big 2-1. Most gastro pubs have a brunch option, so check out your locals to see what’s on offer. The great thing about a bottomless brunch (apart from being ‘bottomless’) is that you get to party all day and still crawl into bed the right side of midnight. Winning!
The idea for this party is to enjoy each course at a different location, all the while enjoying the best your city has to offer. If you live in Sydney, we recommend heading down to Circular Quay to enjoy the beautiful harbour and Aussie icons like the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Start at the Opera Bar for an aperitivo, then make your way around to The Rocks for a traditional pub meal and a hand-pulled local craft beer. For dessert, head to your nearest gelato bar for a scoop of delicious ice cream!
Why go out to a restaurant on your birthday when you can create your own gourmet meal at home? Cooking classes are a wonderfully inclusive way to celebrate your special day and so much fun! Learn how to make your favorite dishes from scratch, then sit down and enjoy all your hard work with your favourite bottle of vino.
Gather all your mates for a good ol’ fashioned picnic in the park (or beach!). Decorate the space with muted-coloured picnic rugs and fringed beach umbrellas for a laidback boho vibe. Add a string of outdoor fairy lights (battery-operated of course) and don’t forget a portable speaker so you can play your favourite tune!
A 21st birthday is kind of a big deal, so make it one for the history books along with the perfect present from our collection of 21st birthday gift ideas.
