Whether they're thinking about organising their first big holiday or Euro trip, saving for their first home or graduating from university, 21 is a special coming of age milestone.
They are finally an adult setting out on their own. However, with such a special birthday, it can be difficult trying to figure out the perfect present for her. Taking the time to choose something special doesn’t have to be as complicated as you might think though. If you’re looking for the perfect 21st birthday gift idea inspiration, we have you covered.
21st birthday gifts for your daughter
Shopping for your daughter's 21st birthday gift can seem tough at first. How do you decide on something that you know she will love, that is just right for a 21st birthday gift? It’s such an important birthday milestone that you want to be sure she will like what you choose. The good news is that with just a little creativity and forethought, you can pick a wonderful 21st birthday gift that your daughter is sure to adore.
When it comes to gifts, you can never go wrong with choosing a special item and getting it personalised with a message for your daughter. This makes the item just a little bit more special and shows that you put time and effort into the gift. Traditional personalised gifts such as jewellery or a nice watch or bag that you can have a thoughtful message embossed on are always a popular option.
Alternatively, you can also consider gifting your daughter an experience for her 21st birthday. This gift could be some flights overseas to a destination your daughter has always wanted to visit, skydiving, bungee jumping or hot air ballooning. Depending on what your daughter is interested in, you can always find a once in a lifetime experience that they will love. As part of a 21st gift, it’s always a great idea to get something such as a beautiful gift hamper that can be saved and enjoyed on a special occasion. A hamper with some delicious sweet treats and a bottle of bubbly always goes down well.
21st birthday gifts for your girlfriend
Choosing the right 21st gift for your girlfriend is simple. Consider getting her something that she can treasure over the years to come. It doesn’t have to be big and extravagant - something simple such as a nice piece of jewellery, some new appliances she has been eyeing up or some beautiful glassware is always a great 21st birthday gift. You can also think outside the box and consider what passions she has to help you pick the right 21st gift. Does your girlfriend love to cook and bake? Try getting her some of the appliances or cookbooks that she has had on her wishlist for ages now. Does she love to travel? Why not treat both of you to a beachside or island retreat? Or head off into the rainforest for a few days and create some wonderful memories in nature?
21st birthday gifts for your best friend
Shopping for your best friend is a lot of fun. You have a unique view of their interests and probably have a good idea of what they may want for their special day. You have probably created a lot of memories together, so you can always create a gift that commemorates those memories. Make a personalised gift hamper with things you know she will love such as candles, wine, her favourite snacks and some of your favourite framed photos together. You can also think about including tickets for the both of you to go to a concert or festival that you know she wants to attend. It’s a great way for you both to have some fun.
Stuck on ideas?
If you’re stuck for ideas about what kind of 21st gift is right, you can always consider putting together some smaller items to create a personalised hamper. It can contain anything you want it to. From delicious smelling candles and luxuriant body creams to nice champagne flutes, wine and chocolate. Is the birthday girl a book or game lover? Why not pop in a limited edition copy of their favourite book or game to enjoy and treasure?
If you are shopping for your daughter, you can also include a personalised 21st birthday key as part of her gift. Many parents choose to gift this key in the form of a pendant or jewellery. A key symbolises the tradition that the receiver is old enough to be a key holder of the family home and can now be considered a symbolic senior member of the family. This key to adulthood is a great way to memorialise the coming of age.Choosing the right 21st gift doesn’t have to be difficult.
