06 Mar Great Gifts for 21st Birthdays
21st birthdays are always a very important occasion, usually marked by a big celebration with family and friends. With 21st birthdays comes 21st birthday gifts and it can be hard to decide on the right gift for the person you are buying for. Here, we’ve got a great list of gift ideas suitable for all sorts of 21-year-olds. From trophies, glasses and novelty gifts to gift vouchers for sky diving, we’ve got a great list of ideas you don’t want to miss:
A voucher for an experience
Turning 21 is a big deal. What better way to celebrate this important milestone birthday than by doing something you’ve always wanted to do? This is where an experience based voucher comes in. Of course, you need to know the person to know what they’d like. You may decide on getting them a skydiving voucher for instance. Or perhaps you want them to really learn to appreciate that alcohol they will be chugging down from a yard glass at their party and want to buy them a voucher for a beer and wine tasting course? Whatever you choose, it’s something they can have a great time doing and remember that they did it for their 21st, compliments of you.
A photo collage
A photo collage is a great idea if you are a close friend or family member of the birthday girl or guy. Buy a large frame and collect a number of photographs of the them with their family and friends. Take the time to position the photos and add any extra decorative touches if necessary before wrapping it up. To finish, write a personal 21st message on the back of the collage. This is a really great gift idea if you really want to get them something they’ll love, but are on a limited budget.
A piece of jewellery or a watch
A watch or a piece of jewellery is a wonderful 21st present. Double check if you are unsure if they prefer silver, gold or another metal. Try to pick something that will compliment their existing jewellery.
An important token
Engraved glass mugs, silver goblets and other traditional gifts are still great ideas and always make an appearance at 21sts. It’s also something they can keep and remember this special day. It doesn’t have to be something that looks like it was picked up at a corporate awards ceremony either. Engraving a special message on a mug, wine glass or something similar is a great way to personalise the gift and of course, it’s always best to choose something you think they will really enjoy using or having on display after their birthday.
Turning 21 is an important rite of passage. It should be marked by a special occasion and does warrant the purchase of an extra special gift for the birthday girl or guy. I hope our list of ideas has given you some helpful tips for what would make the ideal gift for the soon-to-be 21-year-old in your life.
