Gifts Australia makes giving unforgettable gifts for milestone birthdays easy with our heartwarming and fun selection of 21st birthday gift ideas that will induce a thousand smiles.

Birthday Party Ideas and Themes

Make it a memorable 21st with a stand-out party that will kick-off adulthood in style. Choose a theme that will not only appeal to the host, but also the guests. A beach or pool-themed party is perfect for warm climate birthdays when everyone can wear their swimming costumes and drink colourful cocktails and bubbly wine in the sun.

For a classic party, a black and white ball is elegant and stylish. Decorate the room in white and black balloons with matching tableware and party favours. Ask guests to wear black and white and ask the birthday boy/girl to wear red to stand out in the sea of contrast.

For an anti-party with a few friends, a wine tour or escape room adventure could be fun!

Gift Cards

A gift of a life experience is something to be treasured and admired no matter what the age of the birthday person. When looking for 21st birthday presents think carefully about the recipient. What kind of person are they? Do they enjoy the outdoors? Are they daring and adventurous? Do they like to travel and explore?

At Gifts Australia, we have an incredible selection of gift cards to choose from that will appeal to all walks of life and type of interests. Skydiving is a popular 21 birthday gift that really puts one out of their comfort zone, in a good way! Vouchers are available for drop zones all over Australia and there's a fairly high chance of this gift causing a ton of laughter and bravado afterwards.

Pampering vouchers for a massage or float tank experience are also the types of gifts that are valuable as a way to say welcome to adulthood, where life gets busy. Instilling a sense of self-care at an early age will do wonders later in life.

Traditional 21st Birthday Presents

Celebrating 21 years of life is a milestone that results in parents planning big parties featuring baby photos and videos of childhood antics. If they can embarrass their child, they will gladly do it, with love.

Once upon a time, 21 was the legal age to vote and drink alcohol. Even though it's now 18 years old, 21 is still considered the official leap into adulthood and a cause for huge celebrations. It may be time to go travelling on their gap-year, therefore travel gifts such as monogramed leather luggage tags, leather card holder, or a personalised leather overnight bag make excellent gifts.

Maybe they are going flatting for the first time, which means homewares and functional gifts such as a Punching Bag Laundry Bag, Artisan Beer Glasses Set, or one of the many funny coffee mugs at Gifts Australia.

A bottle of champagne is a classic gift suitable for a 21-year-old with a bright and positive future ahead of them. Now that calls for celebration.

21st Birthday Gifts For Daughter

Celebrating your darling daughter's 21st birthday is significant time in a family's life. Choosing a luxury gift she'll adore is important for her to know just how much she is loved.

Pick a present that she'll cherish and always keep close to her heart. A stunning piece of jewellery is a classic gift that will remain with her always. The Willow Tree of Life Necklace with Crystals From Swarovski® features beautiful Mother of Pearl accents on a silver pendant with crystals as leaves on the tree. It's a nurturing gift with a meaningful message of hope and love for one's own life.

Daughter's who like to travel will thrill at receiving a gift certificate to a day spa or a mystery weekend away! A pamper hamper with Moet & Chandon champagne, sweet treats, and luxurious skincare by L'Occitane will not go unnoticed or unappreciated either.

What are the best 21st birthday gift cards?

Birthday gift cards are awesome for the hard to buy at any age, but especially at 21. Many 21 years old haven't had enormous life experiences, so now is a perfect time to spoil them with luxury gifts that will kick start their adult life with style.

Look for vouchers for things that you know will appeal and surprise them. Travel bugs will like anything that lets them escape for a getaway. Beer lovers will get thirsty at the thought of a brewery tour. Adventurers will revel in a sky-high free-fall, and foodies will devour the chance for a gastronomic afternoon out.

From skydiving to race car driving to wine tasting tours and gourmet culinary delights, Gifts Australia has a massive offering of gift certificates for 21st birthday gifts.

What are some good theme ideas for 21st birthday?

What fun to throw a themed 21st birthday party. Since the age 21 signifies being an adult, think along the same lines. Turn your home or venue into a lively casino complete with card games and cocktails. Ask guests to dress in their best smart casual clothing for a night of grown-up fun. A set of Luxury Gold-Plated Playing Dice and Luxury Gold-Plated Playing Cards will encourage high-rollers to bet it all while a friendly game of Shot Glass Roulette gets the party started.

Twenty-one is often when youth leave home to travel the world so why not throw a travel-themed party? Guests could dress in their best cruise or adventure wear and bring travel-related gifts. Our Scratch Map is perfect for the well-travelled or dreamer to keep track of their trips around the globe. Each time a holiday is taken, scratch off the gold foil on the map!

What are some good ideas for 21st birthday presents?

As 21 is one of the favourite young adult milestones, a bottle of fine champagne is always an appropriate and useful gift. Pair a bottle of bubbly with a celebratory 21 and Having Fun Bottomless Glass for a bit of humour on the big day.

Themed 21st birthday gifts for a milestone celebration act as souvenir and mementos of this life event. The 21 And Proud of It Keepsake book is full of inspiring and funny quotes to get a laugh around the table and start conversations.

Experiential gifts make fantastic gifts for their ability to toss the recipient into new and exciting ventures and experiences. Choose once-in-a-lifetime excursions like skydiving, hot air ballooning or a whale shark swim in Western Australia for the best reactions. 

What are the best 21st birthday gifts for a daughter?

Let your daughter enter adult life in luxury and style with an exquisite bottle of pink champagne. You'll find an array of fine wines from the Champagne region of France in hampers at Gifts Australia.

The Moet Rosé Imperial & Gourmet Nibbles hamper is an elegant way to show her how special she is on the day of her birth. Pair this splendid gift pack with our keepsake 21 Blush Champagne Flute or the stunning Miranda Kerr Champagne Flutes Set so she has the prefect glasses to drink her bubbly.

The Love and Laughter Floral Bouquet delivered to her door with the wine hamper will double her pleasure and make her feel like an adored princess.

Gifting your daughter an inspiring and beautiful piece of jewellery will let her have something to remember her 21st birthday forever. The Palas Be the Real You Slider Charm, made of brass and sterling silver sends a message that will always stay with her.

Another keepsake charm perfect for a daughter's 21st is the Palas Out Dream Yourself pendant which will encourage your beautiful daughter to always follow her heart and dreams and never stop living the best life possible. Both charms will look amazing on a plain silver or gold chain necklace or a silver bracelet worn on her 21st birthday and beyond.

Their 21st birthday should be an unforgettable launch into adulthood, and we'll help you mark the occasion with the perfect 21st birthday gift.
