So she’s turning 21 and you’re worried about what to get her. It’s a big birthday to commemorate – and no doubt she’ll have the Jay Gatsby-inspired celebration plans to match its grandeur – so buying her just any old present simply won’t do, trust me. 21st birthday gifts are something to remember forever; whatever you choose needs to make a lasting impression.
No matter how well you know each other, there’s no harm in seeking a little inspo when it comes to purchasing gifts for her. Though turning 21 isn’t as big of a deal as it is across the pond (in the USA), it’s still a landmark: it’s the age many uni-leavers will graduate, and it means you can legally qualify for a pilot’s licence should you want to do more than metaphorically spread your wings.
The whole world will see them as an adult now – despite that turning 18 technically means they’re an official grown-up – so if you have a person in your life who is about to hit this thrilling age, I’ve found the perfect 21st birthday gift ideas for you to peruse and buy. From party decorations and sentimental jewellery, to personalised presents and designer goods. You can thank me later.
What do you get a girl for their 21st birthday?
If you want to really splash the cash and make her day, then go for something on the spennier side like this Saint Laurent monogram quilted leather cardholder. Perhaps you want to introduce her to a perfume she’ll love forever and equate to her 21st birthday? If that’s the case, look to the iconic Baccarat Rouge 540 by Maison Francis Kurkdjian.
You could treat her to this set of three Assouline Chanel books, if she’s into fashion. Now she’s a fully-fledged adult she’ll be seeking sophisticated books to decorate her room with (or use as props for her Instagram posts). Speaking of social media, buy her this Kikkerland Live Streaming Kit and she’ll thank you forever – it even comes with a ring light to illuminate all her #selfies.
