FAQs about 21st birthday gift ideas for women

Her 21st birthday is one of her biggest milestone birthdays, so naturally, her friends, family members, and coworkers put a lot of effort into finding that perfect gift for her. To simplify the process for you, we've answered your top questions about 21st birthday gifts below.

What gift to get for a girl's 21st birthday?

Traditional 21st birthday gifts include experiences like hot air ballooning, a keepsake gift (like a piece of jewellery), alcohol-related gifts (like a personalised cocktail shaker), and homewares for her first apartment or home.

If none of these gift ideas appeals to you, a hamper is also a wonderful option. Hampers give your gift recipient a taste of luxury in their own home. They offer a gourmet, unforgettable experience that will truly tickle her pink.

What symbolic gift do you give for a 21st birthday?

The perfect present for her 21st depends on your relationship with her. Parents often get their young lady jewellery or expensive items for their first home. Siblings get more leeway, and they buy homewares, joke gifts, and sentimental gifts. Friends and family members often give homewares.

The best way to make a 21st birthday gift symbolic is to select something that the birthday girl will remember long-term. So, create an experience or give them something they'll keep for 10+ years.

What do you get a non-drinker for their 21st birthday?

Non-drinkers can still celebrate in style. You can get them pretty much anything – except anything that's closely related to alcohol (wine glasses, cocktail shakers, drinking accessories, etc.).

Our top pick for a non-drinker is the Foodies Hamper. It's packed full of sweet treats, gourmet delights, and artisan ingredients, so your gift recipient won't even notice that it doesn't include wine or champagne.

How can I make my daughter's 21st special?

There are many things you can do to make sure your daughter has an unforgettable 21st.

First, we recommend asking her how she wants to celebrate ahead of time. Big family parties aren't everyone's first choice, so she might prefer to go out with her friends, go out to a nice restaurant with her nearest and dearest loved ones, have a spa day, or save the party fund and spend it on a one-in-a-lifetime experience like a trip.

Next, make a big deal of her on her special day. If she has university or work on the day of her birthday, make sure she still gets a cake, a glass of wine (if she drinks alcohol, of course), a gourmet meal, and quality time with her friends and family.

Treating her to something special, like a celebration hamper, is also a great idea. Celebration hampers come with nibbles and wine or champagne – so you can toast her big day in luxury.

What should I get for my BFF's 21st birthday?

If your best friend is turning 21, we recommend gifting her something special she can hold on to forever. A piece of jewellery (especially zodiac-sign-related jewellery) is popular, as is planning a spa day.
