Twenty-one is a big birthday and you’ll want to make sure to celebrate accordingly. Turning 21 is a historic moment in anyone’s life. Your 20s are when you figure out what you want to do, who you want to be, and really start venturing into adulthood. Maybe they’re finishing college or just starting a job or putting off their adult responsibilities a bit longer or even traveling the world. But what does a 21-year-old really want for his birthday? We have some ideas.
Obviously, alcohol is always the perfect 21st birthday gift, but if you want to be a little more creative or different, we have other options. 21-year-olds are notoriously hard to find, but here are a few things to remember: they’re not teenagers anymore, they’ll probably want something a little more mature but still fun. Chances are, at 21, they’re a bit broke and would like something that they could use for years to come or that would make their 21st birthday even more memorable. If you’re struggling to put yourself in their shoes or don’t have the luxury of buying from an Amazon wishlist, don’t worry. We’ve rounded up 22 gift ideas, all hand-picked by a real 21-year-old. Whether you’re looking for something practical, fun, affordable, or memorable and you’re struggling to find the perfect idea, look no further. Now spend all that time you’ve saved celebrating!
