30 Fabulous 21st Birthday Gift Ideas for Celebrating Their Big Day Right


One of the most exciting birthdays of them all. Not only does the world see you as an even adultier adult—but drinking alcohol is now legal, too! That's big time! (Yes, your 18th birthday technically means you're an official grown-up, but 21 just hits...different, ya know?) So, if you have a person in your life who is about to hit this riveting (and semi-chaotic) age, we've got the perfect 21st birthday gift ideas for you to choose from that are useful, sentimental, and ofc, party-appropriate.

While shopping for teens is next to impossible (srsly), things get a lot easier once your favorite ~youth~ hits their 20s. For their 21st, you can always get 'em a boozy gift or a wine-themed gift, but your options aren't limited to alcohol (especially if drinking isn't their thing). From luxe pajamas to a literal statement-making piece of jewelry to a book about dating in your twenties, any gift that makes your newly-minted 21-year-old feel all grown up is sure to be a win. You only turn 21 once, after all, so you wanna make it memorable.

Ahead, the best gifts you can get a soon-to-be 21-year-old to help them celebrate this milestone birthday in style (and don't be surprised if you're tempted to snag a few of these gifts for yourself!).
